Crazy for Kaisercraft!

As you can see from my previous posts, I've shared several Kaisercraft projects in back-to-back posts. I'm crazy for Kaisercraft! In addition to the fact that I absolutely LOVE Kaisercraft products, it's also because I decided last month to begin a journey... feverishly working on projects for their 2011-2012 design team call!

I can ecstatically report that I have made it to the final round! See all 25 finalists here. I am so thrilled and honored to be in such great company! I still have a long way to go with the final projects, but a big big big thank you to Kaisercraft for putting me through to round 2!

And as if that wasn't exciting enough... "My Red Cabinet" from my 4/26 post is the Kaisercraft April sketch winning layout! Thank you so much, Kaisercraft!

Last but not least, I wish all moms out there a very happy early mother's day! My mum is my craft idol. She is a watercolorist, an oil painter, a knitter, a crocheter, and an apparel designer/maker. She does it all!

Here's a card I made for my mum using all Kaisercraft products. One of the reasons I find Kaisercraft products so inspiring is because of the lovely variety and the incredible versatility. They have bright, fun and whimsical patterns but then they also have soft, romantic, vintage designs. I went for the soft, romantic look for my mum's card using this gorgeous flock accent pattern paper. Loves it!
