Heaps of Kraft

Hi Scrappers,

I feel as though the scrapbooking has been a little neglected lately - I've been in card making mode for the last few weeks so I really felt like doing a scrappy challenge over at Kraft it Up. This month's challenge is to use Kraft cardstock or patterned paper and then to add three other kinds of Kraft items onto the layout. Easier said than done I have to say:

I've used MME patterned Kraft as my base and added some Studio Calico star stickers which I've matted on to black. I also made a kraft button from some corrugated card and swiped over it with gesso and Dimensional Magic. The kraft tab was made with a Nestability and journaling stamp. It's attached to an envelope which contains about 2 pages of private journaling for my son to read when he's older.

Here's some close ups:

It was a very therapeutic page for me and one I've been planning to do for a long time - which just goes to show how scrapping is better than therapy, and a hell of a lot cheaper!

Thanks for stopping by,

Claire x
