Curiosity?

The Kaisercraft Curiosity collection is finally out! A few months ago, I submitted some cards to Kaisercraft for the 2013-2014 DT call and I got into the second round (Top 20)... I think I might have been #20. Anyway we were given some 12x12 papers from two new collections and had to make a card and a layout out of each collection. I'm showing my submissions for the Curiosity collection below. The photo I used in the layout was one that I took of all the cousins from my side of the family, taken at a wedding last year. My son is the only male, the girls are my sister's and brother's children.It's a rare shot of them all as one of my nieces live in Sydney and the rest are here in Melbourne.  I'm also linking this to Simon Says Stamp's Anything Goes Challenge and Moxie Fab World's It's Completely Collagical challenge.



The projects that got through were fantastic, so I'm not surprised mine wasn't in the running. I was encouraged to try again.
As I had left over papers, I made a 'Sympathy' card for someone from work. As a lot of people had to sign it, I made it A4 size using heavy duty Canson Colorline cardstock as the base It's a struggle to make big sized cards as a lot of the smaller stamps will not work. I went for my biggest flower stamp, the PTI Year of the Flowers Rose stamp and this seems to fill up the card quite nicely. Banners always work well for these big cards as well.
