Lowri - Cardset with Nan's Favourites (Kaisercraft )

Hi Everyone - Lowri here

I am pretty excited about my post today! I love to make these fun cardsets, but I had never made one using Kaisercraft products before. When I saw the Nan's Favourites collection I thought it would work great with the Kraft cardstock I use for the cards and folders.

This collection is very versatile and with this project I really wanted to bring out the fabulously "Kitschy" 1950's feel that a few of the papers have. It's just FUN!

The inside of the folder has 2 sections. 
On the left are a couple of little notebooks I covered with the glossy paper from the 6.5"x6.5" pad and a couple of chipboard pieces.

On the right you can see the little cards I made using plain Kraft cardstock, some papers and elements from the 6.5x6.5 pad, a few of the die cuts and some chipboard pieces

The Wooden Flourishes are some of my favourite embellishments from Kaisercraft and I am always trying to find ways to incorporate them into my projects. Here I have just used them as simple decoration on the spine of my booklet - both inside and out.

For the front cover I have used a piece of the Cookie Dough paper along with the "extra bit" border that comes with all the Kaisercraft papers now! A couple of layers of along with an element from the Lemon Slice paper and this fabulous Chipboard Oven -and it is all complete.

Here are a few close-ups of the details. This line is just fun, fun, fun!

Hope you have enjoyed these - see you next time - Lowri :-)
