JOY at CHRISTMAS {kaisercraft & merly impressions}

hello KAISERCRAFT fans! 

as you know, this month i have the pleasure to work with KAISERCRAFT’s HOLY NIGHT collection {available at MERLY IMPRESSIONS online store} and what is the best thing to create with a CHRISTMAS themed line – a family layout, of course :-)


for my background i used KAISERCARD vanilla weave cardstock. i decorated the edge with a pattern stamp from the BLUBELLE stamp set and INK PAD vintage.

 then i cut out two 1cm stripes of the WISE MAN pattern paper, inked and ruffled its edges with TIM HOLTZ PAPER DISTRESSER and, after rolling one of the corners, adhered it to the cardstock with KAISERCRAFT 12mm double-sided tape.

 to cover the cardstock in the corner, i tucked in a die-cut from the PAPER PAD under the pattern paper. then i took the two red pages with text from the same PAPER PAD, cut them to match the width of the background pattern paper and adhered them all together.

to create the layers under my picture decorate my picture i used pattern papers from the PAPER PAD.

then i used a lot of different die cuts and stickers from the the 12″ STICKER SHEET, the PAPER PAD and the COLLECTABLES pack.

i fussy cut glossy flowers and leaves from the glossy papers in the mini paper pad. i adhered them to the layout using MOUNTING foam tape.

all the foil embellishments are fussy cut from the ANGELS foil paper.  i layered the stars onto die-cuts from the COLLECTABLES pack and used RHINESTONES RED to decorate them.

here is a list with all the products used on this project:

to create this layout i got inspired by MY CREATIVE SKETCHES september sketch:
