Hi everyone. I hope this post finds you well. Apologies for being a little quiet lately and not visiting you all as much as I should :( . I will be back later in the week to catch up with you all.
I have been working with the just released Miss Match collection from Kaisercraft this past month and today I want to share with you 2 layouts that I created with this collection which were shown on the Kaisercraft blog recently.
Remember that the complete Miss Match collection is available at Handmade By Suzanne HERE while most of the other Kaisercraft materials are also available at Handmade By Suzanne HERE
The first layout is my take on Saturday Sketch #2. Did you know that each Saturday a new sketch is released at the Kaisercraft blog and you have a whole month to play along and be in with a chance to win some very generous prizes. I won one of their challenges in the past and yes they are very generous!
To see the sketch this layout was based on and to find out all the details please see the Kaisercraft blog HERE

Now here is my second layout with the Miss Match collection. Starting today it is my week together with 2 other DT members at the Kaisercraft blog so get ready for Kaisercraft overload this week on my blog :)
Kaisercraft Materials Used: Miss Match collection papers- Knick- Knack (P881), Rummage (PS214), Junk (P878), Wooden Flourishes- Vines (FL406), Paper Blossoms – Honey ( F628), Mini Paper Blooms – Honey (F645), Pearl Strip – Latte (PL505), Wooden Flourishes – Ornate Frame (FL366), Blossoms – Lily (EM970), Crochet Doily ( EM946), Paper Tags and Shapes – white (EM923)
I once again used the technique I showed you earlier in the month for the Tuesday Tip post where I created the decorative border using a scalloped paper punch. Although the collection has many bold colours that can be used for neutral gender pages, I decided to pull the soft colours for this layout of my 2 girls and combined it with some beautiful Paper Blooms and resin flowers to create this layout
LOVE LOVE LOVE the Kaisercraft Paper Blooms...they come in all colours and you get a few different sizes and designs in each pack! Also love the mini paper blooms :)
Also have been a VERY long time fan of Kaisercraft's wooden shapes and flourishes. I usually do not do anything to them..leaving them raw is my favourite way to use them.
Oh and here is a new thing I discovered I loved! Using the Kaisercraft Pearl Strips to add detail to the edge of my projects! I remember ages ago I had a whole lot of these which look like this and could not really find a use for them until I received a whole bunch of them in my DT box last month and decided to try using them instead of Liquid Pearls that I usually add to my projects. Well I loved the result and have used them quite a bit in my upcoming projects.
Also really liked the crochet flowers from Kaisercraft and the new resins they have released. I tell you I am VERY excited working with Kaisercraft products right now. I have always really loves their core products and now that I have what seems like an endless supply of them I am in creative heaven LOL!
So keep an eye our on the Kaisercraft blog this week as I have also worked with the other July release ...a boy range called Attitude! Uh huh...a masculine collection!!! First time ever I think.. :)
Take care everyone.
