The Little Miss Collection

Gently sand all the wooden pieces, removing any rough edges. Paint all the album edges in white and set aside to dry. Take the piece that will become your front cover and paint in Pretty Pink Kaisercolour and allow to dry. Choose coordinating papers from the Little Miss Collection and adhere them to the remaining nine sides of the album. Once dry, trim off the overhanging edges and around any holes with


a sharp craft knife. To give your pages a 3D effect, cut out flowers and mount them with foam tape. Decorate the remaining pages as desired, with photos, quotes or messages of your choice. You may choose to print out desired quotes on to some coordinating cardstock or simply place rubons directly onto your pages. Further embellish with Rhinestones, Rubons and Paper Flowers. I have used a white gel pen to add some doodling to the flowers and paper. Once your pages are complete, use a small foam brush and gently swipe white paint around the edges to give them a soft distressed look. Join album together with a split ring and embellish by tying some matching ribbon onto it.


This album can be adapted to any need - if you prefer using portrait photos, why not try using the album vertically?


Why not try using your paper scraps to create countdown cubes instead? We have used two Beyond the Page photo cubes and.

Handbag Why hand out lolly bags at the end of a birthday party? This cute handbag would make a great alternative filled with goodies. I can’t think of a little girl who wouldn’t want one.

Kaisercolour - Pretty Pink

The Bloom Collection

Gently sand all the edges of your handbag to remove any rough edges. Using Pretty Pink Kaisercolour colour, paint both sides of all the pieces of the handbag, including the edges, and allow to dry. If you use a lighter shade you may have to apply more than one coat of paint.

Using coordinating paper from the Bloom collection, cover all your outside pieces. For a different effect I have placed the striped piece on an angle and then trimmed the overhanging edges with a craft knife. Next glue your handbag together. You may need to use oversized rubber bands to hold the pieces together whilst they dry.



If your girls are a little older why not make it an activity at the party? That way they will have their very own personalised handbag to take home.

Now it’s time to embellish your handbag as desired. From this paper collection I have cut 6 different flowers that coordinate with the stripes. Once you have worked out where you would like to place them, this may mean moving them around until


you are happy with the layout, mount them with foam tape to give them a 3D effect. Girls LOVE bling so add Rhinestones to the centre of the flowers to give them extra sparkle. Finally to complete your handbag, use matching ribbon and tie a bow around the handle. Gorgeous - every little girl will want one of these!

Paint the edges and back of the clock face with pistachio paint and allow to dry. Cut the following paper sizes from the Little Man paper collection: • 29.5cm x 18.5cm Cheeky paper • 29.5cm x 9.5cm Adorable paper • 29.5cm x 2.5cm Curious paper


Making sure that your clock mechanism hole is in the top right hand corner, adhere the ‘Cheeky’ sheet of paper to the top section of your clock. Next take your piece of ‘Adorable’ paper and adhere it to the bottom of the clock. Then take the strip of ‘Curious’ paper and adhere it over the join of the above two pieces. With your antique white paint, gently apply to front edges of clock to give a distressed look.


Paint the edges of the frame piece before covering with coordinating paper. Again, turn over and trim any overhanging paper. Attach some ribbon to the frame and secure with matchingtion frame onto clock face at desired angle and adhere. Paint some chipboard letters and numbers in matching colours and glue to your clock face. From the patterned paper cut out two clouds and a sun and glue these around the clock mechanism hole. Embellish further if desired with buttons or bling.

Tips 1

This product comes tabbed, so begin by snapping the six frames into individual pieces. Using a sharp craft knife you can trim off the tabs to the edge of the frames, and then using a sanding block, sand the sides smooth.

Use some spare thick card or an icy pole stick to slip between your frames when adhering the ribbon. It will mean the frames are evenly spaced.

Paint all of the edges and and both sides using Pretty Pink Kaisercolour, and allow to dry.

Gently sand the edges of the planner smooth. Using a matching colour, we have used antique white, paint all of your planner edges.


Choose coordinating papers from the To Have & To Hold


collection to cover your planner pages in. After covering one side, be sure to cut out the holes so you can see where to cut when you cover the other side. Take some chipboard letters and paint them mathing colours. Once dry you can add dimensional magic to the letters (if desired) and then adhere your headings to the right side of your pages.


Now it is time to decorate the inside pages. You can make inserts with tabs to suit you headings and give you more room to write. In the receipts page we have cut a 17.75 x 11.75cm piece of matching paper and adhered it to create a pocket. You can embellish the other page as desired.

If you like the distressed look you could also paint, ink or sand around the edges of your wooden canvases.

• 7 x 14 cm rectangle from the Vagabond Gypsy Place the two 7x14cm pieces, one above the other on the last wooden canvas and adhere a piece of red ribbon over the join in the centre. Take your small square coaster and paint around the edges with antique white. Set aside to dry and then cover this coaster with the 9x9 piece of patterned paper and carefully trim the rounded corners. To create the three dimensional effect on this piece we have adhered a small flat piece of wood under the coaster to give it extra height. Paint a wooden flourish in a co-ordinating color and adhere to the top of your canvas, just underneath the top of the coaster. Add a few pearls above the ribbon on either sides of the coaster to complete you project.
