I Love Kaisercraft!

I just love all the kits that Kaisercraft sells.  I recently made 4 of these jewelry holders as Christmas gifts but decided to keep one for myself and make it to match my mini drawer set.

This one was a gift for my daughter.

These projects are so easy and fun to create.  Just paint the wooden frame a colour to match your decor, adhere your paper with two sided tape and attach some knobs using glossy accents.  It's that simple.  Only takes about an hour and you have yourself a wonderful gift!

If you would like to take a look at how I created a set of mini drawers, check out these blog posts "Kaisercraft Mini Drawers" or "The Perfect Gift for the Perfect Friend".

I couldn't resist using this title for my layout!  Love all these girls with all my heart and they made my daughter's wedding day extra special.
I used the Bazzill Bling card stock as my background.  Using Golden Gel Medium moulding paste with the Crafter's Workshop 6x6 brick stencil template, I created the faux bricks in both corners.  I did some faux stitching in the opposite corners.
I placed the photo on top of the cake doilie and added some Prima bling with some miscellaneous flowers and sugar brads.  I cut the crown from the Teresa Collins "Sophisticated" Cricut cartridge using silver glitter paper and added some pink rhinestones.
The title is a Basic Grey "Two Scoops" rubon.
