Kaisercraft DT entry!!

Well ladies this is my entry for the Kaisercraft DT comp!!.. im very nervous about this... ive never applied for a DT positition before...but i think i may just go for it ..i just LOVE LOVE LOVE ( did u get that) KAISERCRAFT!!! im a massive fan and i just love that we all have a chance at being a DT !!!
so here are the choosen projects...
-First is a OTP using the Pack Your Bags collection.. this is one of my favourite collections!! i just love all the badges and rubons! I made this for my cousin for her 21st birthday after her and my sister got back from their thailand trip..they were only gone 2 weeks but i just had to use this paper to make them a mamento :).. i showed to my sister to see if she thought my cousin would like it and she put her own order in for one !! LOL
 this is the inside part of the album ive used kaiser tags and rubons and badges to make little embellishments to hang off the sides of the pockets which will have the photos in them (ive left it empty so they could pick their favourite pics to go in it)..for the photo pockets i used the kaiser pockets used for rubons and embellishments :)
 the other side of the album is all about their trip and i have also left it blank so they can fill in all their favourite bits and pieces! i have used the tags once again and rubbed a rubon on to the tag and inked the edges, and then added the intinerary page from the paper pad, also used the kaiser alpha letters for my titles!

 and this is a the front of the album (OTP)..ive used the punch out bits of the paper pad and then stuck the clear embellishments from the embellishment pack over the top of them, ive used the rubons around the edges of the frames, also u will see i used another tag!  i then used the kaiser alphas to write the names onto the chipboard letters and then used twine and ink to decorate!

second project: this one i just love! im using the whole peachy keen collection to decorate my scrap desk!
 ive covered my drawers in the paper and then used the pearl embellishment bird to decorate the top as well as rubons and then also cut out different sized flowers and layered them onto the top.. i then used chipboard letters for the word inks covering them with the stickers letter from the peachy keen collection!

the next project is a LO, i just love this picture of my nana when she was youner with her friends at the beach!
 ive used kaiser flowers (green) and also the pattern paper background is from the After five collection and the pattern paper behind the photo is from the nans favourite collection ( i just love this collection aswell!). ive also used kaiser lace around the photo and for the word nana ive used kaiser alpha stickers! the other scrappy things ive used are doillies, the letters are from basic grey and little flower and lace flowers from the little antique furniture and lace shop round the corner from my house !
 heres a close up!
the next LO is of me and my cousins when we were little, in the tub at grandmas!
 in this LO ive used the secrety bird society collection and kaiser pearls. the little torn bit on the side is tied off by a bow of twine and ive used both sides of the paper to bring the colour over to that side of the LO.  ive made a little pocket with my journalling inside explaining the reasons behind bathing all of us in the tub at once lol..
my next project is a card and my fav so far!! i just love the nans favourite collection and have used it alot!
 ive made my own card out of bazzil and then stuck a piece of paper pad paper onto the front of the card and the a die cut from the paper pad onto the front and made my own stamped plaque for the title of my card, ive then used my scollop punch and made a little boarder with the knife and fork paper and also used a red checked punch out from the paper pad and then used a piece of check ribbion that i found in my stash! EASY!!

my next project is my lastest LO. ive used the timeless collection! this page is of my grandad when he was 3 and on a clydesdale horse ..just love this pic of grandad!
 ive used one piece of paper from the timeless collection but flipping it to use both sides! i then used kaiser lace for the bottom of the photo and then also for the scolloped boarder at the top. ive torn boths sides of the LO and using one side of the paper placing it behind the tear and then stappling it bak together! i used a boarder punch again to make a scollop at the top of the page, and then used numbers as my title and alpha letter as a subtitle from another company
 close ups !!
the next LO is of my nana on the day after her wedding! ive used the nan favourite collection again !
 ive used kaiser flowers and doilies and made my own little flower from a tim holtz die, i then used alpha letters for my title (not kaiser), ive used kaiser lace around my photo and then a die cut from the paper pad and also a bit of pattern paper as the background of the photo. (sorry about the year it didnt come properly, its says 1962)
the next project is another OTP ( just love kaiser OTPs) this is a album i did for nana about her 70 birthday..(which i didnt get to attend, which made think ill make it for her ) :) she loves it!!
 ive used the cupcake album, for the front cover ive used the rubons from the Candy Lane collection, and also i used beads to represent  sprinkles, i used an older kaisercraft paper collection for the album as nanas favourite colours are purple and green. i also used kaiser chipboard alphas for the titles inking them and then putting dimentional magic on them!
 ive used older kaiser rubons to decorate the pages and used photos from nanas special photo shoot she had with the family.. just love these photos of everyone( i just wish i was there for it)

 ive also used prima flowers and kaiser rubons this page! love this pic of mum and nana, so natural !
 and the back cover! .. this is the wording i use whenever i give someone a card or handmade OTP for their birthday or christmas

the last project ive done is some little flower embellishments. ive used tuel and kaiser flowers and some brads to hold them together!
and that is it! i hope you enjoyed having a lookies at what ive created over the last couple of months!! ..these projects still havnt used up anywhere near half my kaisercraft collection!! i love it so much!!!
one last thing.. good luck to everyone else and ive enjoyed so far looking at others entries on their blogs ..which as insipred me more to join in!! GOOD LUCK!!
