Countdown to Christmas …

… vintage style.

I played with some Kaiser Craft goodies last week.

These very cool Kaiser Advent Calendar kits arrived at Crafthouse last week … along with the three new Kaiser Christmas paper ranges and I just had to have a play.

I’ve used Kaisercraft Dear Santa papers and rubons. Just couldn’t resist the beautiful vintage colours and traditional Christmassy images.

And of course I couldn’t help but add some extra vintage bits and pieces … lace, book pages, bingo counters, pearls … you know, all the good stuff. Then I had to go digging in the attic for the box of Christmas decorations, I just knew there was a perfect nutcracker soldier man buried in there somewhere.

So yeah, lots of fun putting all the finishing touches on but I’ve gotta admit though, there was a whole lot of work involved in prepping, painting and putting the basic kit together … that part wasn’t so much fun. I think it was totally worth it though … don’t you?

  9. Beverley this is so gorgeous and even better in real life (saw it in KS when I popped in on Monday) its totaly stunning – the photos (as gorgeous as they are) really don’t do the detailing you had embellished on it justice….wow wow wow…. was going to do mine modern hot pink & lime green….but you have made me give that a rethink the vintage is an amazing look…..Also loved the class samples you had around the store….
