Our wonderful Design Team have come up with some great ideas using the Kaisercraft La Di Da range of papers and embellishments.

Lisa's LO...
I loved using the Kaisercraft La Di Da collection with its lovely colour scheme and cute little birdies. I love using dimension on my LO's so I have cut out some of the elements from the paper and used double sided foam to raise them off the page and used the pearls to add a little bit of extra bling you sometimes need to finish our LO....Lisa

Close up showing the handcut elements, pearls and gorgeous flower Lisa has created.

Kirsten's LO

Jan's Cards
I have taken advantage of the gorgeous elements on this paper, and handcut them for my cards. I have used double-sided foam to add dimension, pearls and Kindy Glitz. I have finished to cards off by using Carolees Creations Adorn It Tiny Stickers.
