In these Moments......

Using this month's Mad Scrappers Kit of patterned papers from Kaisercraft 'Betsy's Couture' paper range, coordinating cardstock and a Specialty Die-cut from the same collection, I created this second layout.

I used Navy cardstock and 'Mary Jane' patterned paper for the base of this layout.  I layered it with die-cut doilies, journal card and strips cut from 'Shawl' patterned paper.  I added some bling in the form of pearls in the flower centre and on the little pocket watches.

Looking forward to our first Mad Scrappers Club of this month tonight.  See you later Mad Scrappers!  I will hopefully post some of the ladies layouts in the next few days.  Thanks for stopping by.

This is one of two layouts I have created using this month's Mad Scrappers Kit, which consists of Kaisercraft 'Betsy's Couture' patterned papers, coordinating cardstock and a Kaisercraft Specialty Die-cut sheet.

I used the clock shaped die-cut paper for this layout of my Granddaughter and her friend.  I wanted it to be 'girly' so added some pearl gem flowers around the clock face and some smaller pearls in the centres of the smaller clock faces in the pattern.

I used the lace strips from the 'Shawl' patterned paper to add an edge to the photograph and to create two die-cut bows (an alternative to using flowers).  A clean and simple layout but I didn't want to add too much to the already fabulous patterned paper.

Something different for the Mad Scrappers Club members to use this month.  Hope you enjoy creating with this kit ladies.

Further details can be found HERE.  Hope to get this range in... still waiting for January's and February's new colours to be delivered.

This is a lovely shade of blue - makes me think of Summer days.  Good news - only 3 weeks until the clocks go forward here in the UK.  Oh happy days!
