Scrapbookit Guest

Good Morning Everyone.
I was very excited when Jo from Scrapbookit very generously asked me to be her Feature Artist for September.

My September theme from Jo was Christmas. Wow! Can it really be just around the corner? Jo sent me a beautiful package to work with. The gorgeous Kaisercraft Holy Night Collection,
which is available through Jo's online store, was just the stimulation I needed to get into the Christmas mood.

I began by spritzing the background of some Smooth White Kaiser cardstock with red craft paint and then daubed some spots with versa colour magenta ink. Mounting my photo onto red cardstock helped to lift it from the background as well as picking up the colour from the candy canes.
I cut some of the papers into banners and then placed them behind the photo, then tucking and layering a number of pieces from the kaisercraft Collectibles under the bottom corner of the photo. It was hard to choose which ones to use because they were all so beautiful. I complimented these by adding a fussy cut gold angel to the top corner.
Also in my pack were some fabulous green and red glitter leaf sprays. I adore a bit of bling and glitter so I put a leaf spray on the top right of my photo to balance the page.

 Finally I fussy cut two of the stars on the Angels sheet and, using foam tape, I placed the smaller star on top of the larger one, finishing it off with a diamante in the centre of
the star and a scattering of others around... it's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!!!
I hope this inspires you for the upcoming silly season.

Cheers and Happy Scrapping.
Heather B.
