Kraft cardstock has always been a favourite!

One of the photos I took of my daughters formal, which is very lovely and called for some pretty things. I decided on Kraft as my base as I thought it gave an instant pop when I put the photo on it. I usually use white but it didn’t give me the depth of colour I wanted. Straight onto red cardstock was too much red.

I added black acrylic paint and then red Nuvo mousse with a doily stencil. Its shiny and pretty. I also have a rose cut file tucked into the side there.
Some tags and hearts, a small paint swatch and some collage paper kept it reasonably minimal. I machine stitched it onto the red card to add extra detail. It has lots of lovely texture, which I like.
Heres some fun tags I made using Vicki Boutins Storyteller Collection. Kraft cut into tags, stamped with black text, fussy cut birds and leaves.
I added a rectangle of patterned paper to the top, folded over and punched a hole. Then added some jute twine. Ive also added some machine stitching on these for the detail.

Hope you give these Kraft projects a go, it really is a fabulous base for lots of things. I have some more ideas with Kraft that Im working on now, so will share them next time.

Stay safe and healthy in the New Year.

Serendipity Collection by Uniquely Creative

Happy New Year everyone!
Heres a recent layout of my 3 daughters on Christmas Day 2020. This is the new collection for January 2021 from Uniquely Creative called Serendipity. Its very pretty and I love the stencil which I have used with oxide inks on the edges of this layout.

Some close ups to see just how pretty this collection is.

This collection is now available and my local A Place To Create. They have a good stash of it in store now.
