It's a mans touch!!! How talented are my customers?  Douglas attended my crop Saturday night and finished off his Kaisercraft desk organiser and note pad holder using the Up, Up and Away Collection of papers and embellishments. How amazing does this look?  Douglas shows us how you can transform any wooden piece from Kaisercraft into male or female by the selection of papers you use. 
Douglas's amazing desk organiser will be on show in store this week if you would like a closer look.  A reminder that A Place to Create stocks all the Kaisercraft wood, papers and embellishments so you too can create your own masterpiece.
Great work Douglas, thank you for sharing your fantastic project.

We enjoyed good company, good food, laughter a little fun and of course a little scrapbooking and crafting late into the night. Thank you to all who attended I hope you had as much fun as I did.

This is the true spirit of Christmas- Jill proudly presenting her beautiful Kaisercraft advent calendar she has just completed. Jill purchased the Kaisercraft advent calendar and all the new Christmas papers and goodies from the store only last week and today came in to show us her finished project. It is just amazing what Jill has created so I asked if I could share it with the rest of my customers.
