A Krafty Manly Layout

Happy happy happy Monday "KRAFTERS"!!! Simon Says Stamp & Show DT member Sandra wants to see some "Kraft" this week! From paper to stickers or even chipboard, any loose interpretation of kraft is welcome here. This would be a great challenge to break out the Ranger Inkssentials Kraft Tags, or some of Tim’s Chit-Chat Stickers, or even some plain chipboard or corrugated cardboard. Even a grocery bag made of kraft brown paper would be awesome! The krafty field is wide open, and it is up to you to decide how and what you’ll make this week.
Are you shocked to see a scrapbook page? I was shocked to make one..actually two...but since Father's Day just rolled around and I was asked to design a layout for a few classes, I thought this challenge would be perfect to combine with it. 
Besides the regular kraft paper, there is corrugated kraft paper here too, which makes the best texture ever! I just love all of these Tim and Wendy manly stamps with Wendy's sentiment.
 
 
This is another variation I did in all metallics.
If you are like me, and love vintage style Art and crafting, then I know you have Kraft paper items lying around. Make a project with them, and then enter it into our challenge. You just might be the lucky winner of a $50 voucher to Simon Says Stamp. You can also be named as one of the "Top Three Picks" for this challenge. Good luck, and don't forget to check out the other Design Team member's blogs and see what KRAFT they've made this week. There are some absolute beautiful makes!
Supplies:


I hope your hands get creatively dirty soon!

  2. Great project with lots of interesting texture and colour. I like to look thru the photos and find all the little extra details made with stamping in the background too. The teal one really grabs my attention.

  10. I love the teal and craft colour combination Anita. I have never tried using corrugated card but it looks fab. I don't tend to do much inky stuff on a layout but you have inspired me to have a go. I think I will have to keep my photos well out of the way while I work though or someone may end up with a few freckles they didn't know they had ;-)

  26. I learned from Linda to save those cans and now you're hitting home with trash bags. I should craft with them since I always forget they're in the trunk to recycle at the store. ;)
    Love your LO Anita. The subtle stamps of you are an awesome father and daddy are wonderful additions to this very personalized gift. You did an amazing job here. :)
