Kaiser Saturday Sketch October # 3

I have been getting things ready for my Girls Night In so I haven't posted anything for a week or so.
This is my take on the Kaiser Sketch for October # 3. I have used an older paper again as I wanted the colours to keep going with the Album that I am doing with Shelby's Formal. So with mostly Loire Valley Collection and a little bit of Argentella this is what I have come up with. Donna is Shelby's Mum she is in the green and her Auntie Tanya, Donna's sister, who has been my best friend since we were 3 years old, over 40 years or more now is in the Red .
I really love the bird cages so I have added this to the page as there are birds all over this collection.
A little bit of bling and the page is complete.
This is the sketch we had to work with.
My thoughts, prayers and condolence's goes out to a fellow blogger and business owner who has just lost her 2 month old Grand Daughter from SIDS, it is not something their family will get over, but knowing we are all thinking of them hopefully helps.

Kaiser Saturday Sketch October # 1

Well okay I have gone backwards with the Kaiser Saturday Sketch #1 for October. But this layout will match the last one I did with Shelby at her Formal. I have used the same Kaiser Paper Sakura Park, punched out some flowers added some bling and the pretty Lamp Post. I used Kaiser Rub-ons for the word Family and added some ribbon to curl at the ends.
Everything on this page is Kaiser except for the Silver Card stock and ruffled Ribbon.
This is the sketch,
Here is a close up of the Lamp Post that I coloured with Tim Holtz Distress Inks and
of course added a little Bling.
I am of to Monteville for the weekend with my dear Friends Karin and Mavis, so I am trying to pack all my craft stuff and not take to much HA HA that's a joke.
Enjoy your weekend

Kaiser Saturday Sketch October # 2

It is very hard to imagine that this gorgeous girl Shelby is 17 and all dressed up for her Year 12 Formal.
We have known her since she was born and we have watched her grow into a beautiful Young Lady.
I loved doing this Kaiser Sketch October # 2 as you could use 3 photo's and I love putting lots of photos on my pages. So this is done with an older paper called Sakura Park, I am not sure if you can still buy it but I wanted to use it because of the red and black colours.
I have used Doily Dies, Martha Stewart Punches, Nestabilities Dies, all Kaiser paper and of course lots of bling. Pop back in a few days as I have finished the Sketch for October # 1, and it will go into my album as this page's other half. The words are cut with Cricut Cartridge Forever Young.
This is the sketch we had to work with.
Cheers Shelley

My Magnolia Stamps

I cant believe I am actually sitting here with my dressing gown on its got cold in Brisbane today.
Well enough about the weather, I wanted to show you what I have been working on for my Magnolia Stamps. I have 46 stamps and counting I think I have an addiction when it comes to these little cutie's.

So I decided to make a book and then stamp the stamps on the pages in the book so I know what ones I have and I can quickly look through them and decide which one I will use.
I am also entering this into the Totally Tilda Challenge # 32 - Decorate a Beer Mat (Coaster)

or Mini Album, I only noticed this one the other day so it has worked out quite well for this challenge.
This is the front of the book,
So here are my little girls and boys from left to right we have Leaning Tilda, Cool Ed, Tilda with Flowing Hair, Tilda with Lace Jeans, Circus Tilda all at the Shabby Chic Fence with Edwin's Town in the background.
This is the back of the book with, Romantic Tilda, Brother & Sister, 60's Tilda, Wonderful Tilda sitting on the Tin Boxes and Love Muffin.
Here is a close up
Brother and Sister is so cute,
And this is the inside of the book, I haven't finished this yet but I have stamped all of the stamps on the pages so I can just flick through.
Please leave me a comment and tell me which is your favourite Tilda.
Enjoy Shelley
