Kaisercraft Mint Wishes

Hi there!

Today I'm sharing some pages made with the stunning Kaisercraft Mint Wishes paper pack.  This beautiful kit is so easy to work with.  I love wood prints and the colour palatte is so pretty.

My first project is based on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine sketch for December.

When I saw the sketch, I thought of Christmas ornaments, so using my Silhouette and a Lori Whitlock cut file, I cut out some ornaments. I wanted to bling up the ornaments so the dots on the large ornament were covered in Nuvo Crystal Drops. Using paper glue, I painted the leaves and pinecones and sprinkled loose glitter over it.  And I did the same thing with the word "joy" on the small ornament.  When it was dry, I covered it with more Nuvo Crystal Drops.

To give the hangers a metallic look, I embossed them with silver embossing powder. To make the title, I used some Jen Hadfield Thickers that I inked with white stamping ink and sprinkled with white acrylic paint. To embellish the rest of the page, I fussy cut flowers from one of  the patterened papers and a few Want to Scrap Rhinestones.  I then added some green string that I took from the Christmas wrapping pile. ;)

Here is a closeup of the details.  They are hard to see, but noticeable in real life.

For my next page, I started with some Nuvo Embellishment Mousse and a Tim Holtz Stencil in the top left corner and where I wanted to place the photo.  I decorated the page with die cuts and stickers from the Mint Wishes collection.  The title is made by cutting a branding strip and a Thickers set. I finished the layout by using some Nuvo Drops  and more Christmas string to once again "hang" the ornaments.  The edges were distressed and then placed on a piece of green cardstock from my stash.

This was the first time I've used the Nuvo Embellishment Mousse.  It gives such a nice shimmery texture to the page. Very cool product!

I just LOVE this collection!  It is so easy to work with.  I'll be back in a few days with a couple more.

Thanks for looking!
