Basic Grey Tea Garden & Kaisercraft Fiesta! - by Linda Eggleton

Hello there & welcome.

Today I have another layout to share using the lovely

This time I've used some travel photos & gone for papers that suited - mostly greens,
which shows that this really is quite a versatile collection :)

"Lough Caragh"

I have used the Green Tea paper as my base, and I've added a small amount of stenciled texture to it using a Teresa Collins stencil & modelling paste.  I also used the Mint paper to add the 
white border to the page. 

I've grouped together a few different Green Tara flowers & leaves, as well as a few stickers from the Elements sticker sheet to create a cluster....and you can also see some of the stencil work here.

I added another smaller cluster at the upper left of the photos, again Green Tara flowers, Element sticker & a cute Flutterby flair....and just below that I've included some yummy 2Crafty Chevron Bits that I've coloured lime green with my Gelatos - these are one of my favourite 2Crafty pieces, as they are super versatile & can be added to any type of layout & they ALWAYS look fabulous!

More Chevron bits on the opposite side of the photos....and the title is using the alpha stickers, which has 3 different sized & styles of alpha stickers, which makes it awesome value!

Across the bottom of the photos I've added a border sticker from the Element sticker sheet....I wanted to add some blue to the page, to pick up the blue in the water & sky in the photos.

A list of products with links to the AAS store can be seen at the bottom of this post.

Next I have some of my Kaisercraft DT work to share with you all,using the bright & funky 
Fiesta! collection.  
The name of this collection describes it to a T!

I was a little pushed for time creating for this month, so I have only managed to create a set of cards.
"Thinking of You"
I started by picking out a few of my favourite papers & have layered them up & finished off with a centre piece that I've stamped using the Fiesta stamp set - this is a super cool stamp set, I tell ya!
& a cluster of blooms, collectables & some cotton thread.
The centre circular piece was cut using the full circle piece of the Circle Card Flip die that was released this month.

There are a few stamps that come with this collection - called Aztec & Geo
I have used the Aztec stamp on all 3 is a set of super cool geometric strips.

I've added some veneer brackets that I've painted white for a little bit of contrast.
