Keisercraft Needle and thread scrapbook layout

Morning everyone, design elf Katrina here with another project using the wonderful Keisercraft Needle and thread paper collection.

My Mum has always enjoyed cloths and as a young woman went to evening classes to learn dress making. I have lots of old photos of her in her latest outfit so the new papers from Keisercraft were perfect for a layout using some of the photos.

I used one of the 12x12 papers as the background
Then some of the Collectables, which are chipboard pieces, to frame the photos. The button and lace border at the bottom of the photo strip are from the sticker sheet.
The Tim Holtz alterations die Sewing room just went perfectly with it, I cut out the manikin in cardstock then again in the papers and outlined it with a black pen. The flower at its waist is from the collectables, more collectables were used behind.
Then of course I had to add some hand stitching as a finishing touch.
All these products can be bought from The Fruit Pixie online shop.

Keisercraft needle and thread tin lid tag

Hi, design elf Katrina here.

   I have been known for years now in my family for having soup tin lids, among many other odd things on my Christmas tree! I first made soup tin lids into tags and decorations about 5 years ago, they are ideal with their hangers integral to the lid.   So here is what I do with them ......

Who would know??  For this one I used some of the pieces from the Keisercraft Needle and thread collectables, the die cut piece collection and some of the Fruit Pixies wonderful buttons.
They make wonderful tags, best not give them to a small child though as the edges could be sharp.
So start collecting as I will be using more of these in the future, hehe !!
                                     happy crafting,
                                                                 love Katrina
