Well, I had the big 'thanks but no thanks' rejection email from Kaisercraft yesterday. I was trying out for the design team and, although I didnt get accepted, I had a great time working with the Kaiser products in my stash (there was a lot to choose from). So now that they dont want me (boo hoo) I can share my layouts with you all. There is always next year.

Love To
Single layout about myself. I cut out the floral flourish and used the negative of it to mask with a stamp pad. I then added rhinestones to the flowers. I also added a pleat of paper under the photo and scrunched up some craft wire.

Double Layout. I handcut the flourishes and the strips of paper. I distressed all edges and then machine stitched all papers and a border on the cardstock around the outer edge of the papers. I added a doodle border too.

Beach Fun Album
Mini album. For this one I used the FUN album but added 2 extra acetate pages, one at the front to add my title and one in the middle. I used a lot of layering on the album, and extended embellishments off the edges by adding them to acetate to give them some body. I would then cut the shape out and adhere it so it overlapped the edges. My title was made by using thickers on the front and then painting the reverse of the acetate page. Once it dried I scraped some off using a knife and added glue and glitter to give a sparkley, sanding effect.
