Kaisercraft November Sketch Challenge – Smile

I decided to have a go at the Kaiser Sketch Challenge this month, even though the theme is Christmas – not exactly my favourite theme to create with.  I just don’t do a lot of Christmas layouts, especially since I decided a few years ago to live as many of the moments as I can with my children – not just take photographs of the moments.

kaisercraft-sketch-november-2016-alicia-redshaw

My layout is about a photograph of Milton being sneaky with his own camera taking photographs of family members who weren’t necessarily agreeable to being caught on film.  

kaisercraft-sketch-november-2016-alicia-redshaw2

I have used the recently released Kaisercraft Silent Night Collection along with some of the awesome new Kaisercraft Glitter Cardstock.  Star dies in multiple sizes helped bring my layout together – especially my favourite die….

dd561

This innocent looking star die cuts enough small stars in varying sizes for a layout, without looking like you have a star overload.

kaisercraft-sketch-november-2016-alicia-redshaw4

Distressing felt like the perfect finish to my layout, as inking would have made it too grungy – losing the fresh feel of the papers I have used.  And the large open stars have been created using two star dies of different sizes that nested together (the inner stars were actually stitched stars on each size I created).

kaisercraft-sketch-november-2016-alicia-redshaw3

You only have just under two days to go if you are going to enter the Kaisercraft Sketch Challenge for November – plenty of time if you set your mind to it…..

123 Challenge – Pretty Princess’

The challenge this month at the 123 Challenge Blog is perfect for Girly photographs, like the one I have used of my beautiful girls – Naomi-Jon and Amelia-Ann.  Yes, we love hyphens for girls and James as the middle name for boys – just two little traditions of our very own.

123-challenge-november-2016-alicia-redshaw

I have used the gorgeous Cocoa Vanilla Studio Love Always Collection – which has to be my favourite from this awesome brand so far this year…..that revelation could change this month when I get my hands on the new Endless Summer Collection, as it looks pretty awesome.

123-challenge-november-2016-alicia-redshaw4

The Challenge is to use the colour Peach, the word Pretty and the technique of Pleats.  Which was pretty easy to accomplish with all of the lovely ranges around at the moment that either feature Peach or work very well combined with Peach.

123-challenge-november-2016-alicia-redshaw3

When you visit the 123 Challenge Blog you may just realise a bit of a secret…..as I am actually the Owner of the 123 Challenge Blog, and have been for over two years now.  It’s not that it is a secret, but it is something that I am careful with as I also own the main sponsor Scrapbook Fantasies (an arrangement in place long before I took over the site).  So now you know that Challenge Blog Owner is another one of the dozen or so hats I wear.

123-challenge-november-2016-alicia-redshaw2

The Bits& Pieces packs were a new product line to Cocoa Vanilla Studio this year, starting with the Love Always Collection.  This little pack of awesomeness is a must when I create as it includes lots of little bits of co-ordinated goodness that work so well with my layered style.  I also love the new adhesive Chipboard and Vellum Die-cuts too……just yum!

123-challenge-november-2016-alicia-redshaw5

Now it’s your turn to have a go at the challenge, and don’t forget to check out the awesome layouts created by the 123 Challenge Design Team —— here!
