My daughter bought me a whole stack of great scrap supplies for my recent birthday. It seemed only fitting that I create something that centered on her and her little brother. These kaisercraft frames are great because there isn't too much painting t o do and they look great really quickly. I have visions of filling my walls with these things!

I had great fun putting this kaisercraft caravan mini together for fathers day. The hunt and gather collection is kind of terrific, lots of outdoorsy stuff and good masculine patterns.
Of course my son Thom has become white good at wielding the foam brush and mod podge so he was in charge of gluing!
I think this is my best mini so far. Not too fussy, very cohesive and capturing quite a small every day moment in a lovely way. I even went a little creative with the wrapping

I must say I am using up a lot of my Basic Grey sweet threads pack - I'm hoping they go for a more muted colour story next week
I'm really pleased with how these three cards turned out. What do we all do with all these handmade cards?

I've learnt that the most successful minis don't have all the elements for the one collection - by combining two or even three you can make it so unique. companies tend to work in the same palette so there is no real trick to combining. This mini combined 5 and Dime and Campfire ranges pretty seamlessly
I also think the best minis tell a story of a small moment in everyday life. This was an autumn afternoon walk that ended in some intense crafting.I called it Fall Days simply because I couldn't fit the word autumn on my cover, simple as that.

In fact he likes anything the toots, beeps or honks. He seems to also really love looking at the minis I make of him, he is the star of the book after all.
Kaisercraft have recently introduced sticker sheets to the collections and they are fantastic. The chipboard elements in this range are great too because they have lots of dimension (see the cloud? awesome)
I was going to use their train wooden album but I've already used it twice! So the arrow worked well I think.
A really really fun Sunday afternoon project and a great new range for Kaisercraft.

Yes I have started on my Christmas presents - well the wrapping at least! Because I still had so much left from my Tis the Season and Dear Santa pads following my Christmas album I thought Id be a little industrious this weekend and transform some basic papier mache boxes into Christmas packages (ready for a pretty mug, a brooch, some earrings perhaps?) the smallest one I made a tag gift set to send to friends in London. So cold here in Melbourne it may as well be snowing so I can pretend I'm in a Northern Christmas!

What can be a better treat for mothers day than for the whole family let me just scrapbook all afternoon? And that's exactly what I did. Last week Thom and I found a caterpillar in the garden and decided to give it a little home in the cubby. He was fascinated by it, feeding it leaves, putting some dirt in a container for his new pet to roam around.
