Echo Park "Capture Life" & Kaisercraft "Mistletoe" - by Linda Eggleton

Hello everyone & welcome to the blog today :)

I am back to share another layout using the fun & versatile
I have to say that this has been a fabulous collection to create with....and I'm really happy
 with the different themed layouts I've been able to get from it.

This one is using pics of my crazy husband while we were in Ireland last year....and is
 quite bright with a mixture of colours & patterns.

"Hello Hello?"

I've used the reverse side of the Journal Cards paper for my background with that fabulous
 white text on the grey background...and of course I didn't want to go covering any of it
 up with background work.  I've then used a variety of papers to layer in under my photos. 
 The patterns & colours in this collection are fun & gorgeous!

Some of the alpha stickers from the Alphabet sticker sheet & also one of the 2Crafty
 word circles that I've coated in gesso & then coloured with gelatos.

A few of the stickers from the sticker sheet

And some journaling on one of the pieces that I cut from the Memories paper.
And I LOVE that arrow paper <3

A small cluster of Petaloo & Green Tara flowers with a film viewfinder from the sticker
 sheet & a brad from my stash - Teresa Collins Memorabilia Decorative Brads.
I have coloured the Petaloo flower with the same coloured gelato as the 2Crafty piece previously.

Next up is some of my Kaisercraft DT creations using the gorgeous
"Mistletoe" collection.

Yep....Christmas is on its way! :-/

"The Merry Little Christmas Crack-Up"

I've used a variety of papers to create tall Christmas trees in behind my photos and have
 used the reverse side of the Wreath paper for my background - I love those chevrons!

As always, the Collectables pieces are FABULOUS!

I always keep the "cut off strips" from my KC papers & then love to use them on my
creations whenever I I've used the strip above the photos .

^ Some new washi tape that is being released SOON - Fa La La La

Pics are of my crazy kids....and to think that I was trying to get some
nice normal Christmas photos! lol

"1920's Christmas"

I've gone for more brighter, contasting colours for this one.

Some more of the collectables pieces & some stamping using the Mistletoe stamp pack - the
 little black sprigs in amongst the cluster are from the stamp pack as well.  After stamping
them onto cardstock, I then cut them out & tucked them in and around the cluster of
blooms & collectables pieces.

A few tags from the Paper pad finished off with a small piece of KC lace.

And lastly, some jars that I have altered into Christmas gift jars - to be filled with lollies,
 chocolates, or maybe some home baked goodies

These are so simple & quick to make!
Just a few strips of paper & lace, with some collectables & blooms & you have
transformed a plain glass jar into a gorgeous gift jar....and then you can fill it with
something yummy & give to someone special <3
