So it is the start of school holidays in Victoria. 1 half of me says yay no swimming, ballet, footy & footy training for 2 weeks while the other half of me is already going nuts listening to the fighting, whinges of I'm bored & hungry LOL!
Today I have an easel card using the new Kaisercraft St Nicholas collection. I have made this a bit differently by adding a flip top gift box underneath the card. Perfect for candy canes or chocolate surprises! This collection is a gorgeous vintage/traditional xmas collection. Lot's of beautiful images to fussy cut too!

As you can see I have had a play around with my blog & changed the look. I was feeling in a funky mood & decided to go with a fresh, bright look.
What do you think?? I created the header myself but I'm still not 100% sold on it yet. I used Glitz Designs digital Wild & Free.
I'm excited I finally got the chance to play along with Once Upon A Sketch again! It's been a while & it felt so good creating a page that wasn't for DT work for something different.
Here is the sketch created by the lovely Nadia Cannizzo
& this is what I came up with
I just bought some Crate Paper On Trend which has been out for a while but I loved the bright colours & felt like doing something a bit different. To create the background I sprayed some Shimmerz in Tuscan Sun, then used a Prima mask with some Shimmerz Texturez Tidy Widy. I used a shimmerz lid & mist lid to stamp some yellow shimmerz & green lime shimmerz.
The Love you in the title are from the Glitz Design digital Wild & Free kit. The Love was printed on transparent paper & the you on photo paper
I have used a mix of Prima & Kaisercraft flowers. The resin Cameo is from Websters Pages
The chippes are new from Imaginarium Designs . I have just painted them in gesso then used my fingers to dab on some Shimmerz in yellow & Green Lime
The theme for the sketch is Lucky. My journalling reads- I feel so lucky to have 3 happy, healthy, beautiful kids. You always make me smile at the crazy things you do!
Now if you want to win this prize

I hope you are all feeling joyful out there! I for one always feel happier when the sun is shining & the footy finals are in full swing! Unfortunately my team didn't make the finals but I still enjoy watching the other teams play!
Any way on to scrappy things. I am playing with Kasiercraft Curiosity this month. I'm still fussy cutting everything I can and had a play with a bit of mixed media on this page. I also had a play with my brand new toy which I LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!
Has any played with the Martha Stewart Circle edge punch?? It is seriously the neatest scrap toy to have been released recently & I love the different circles you can create. From 12X12" to 6X6" circles with lots of interchangeable borders there is lot's of fun to be had with this little gizmo & it is super easy to use! Olga was so lovely to order them for the shop after I spotted them on you tube & HAD to have one!!
Here is a link to see how awesome these things are!
**Don't forget we have our first ever Blog Hop happening all month. Check out the details here for your chance to win some great prizes!!**
I had a play with a Kaisercraft template & gesso then sprayed some Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Georgia Peach over the top. I let the mist dribble down in some spots. I also flicked some spots of mist in Tattered Angels in Candy Apple Red
This is what I am blabbing on about!! The Martha Stewart Circle edge punch. I have used a 6" circle with Flower Arches cartridge.
