This week we have the pleasure of introducing you to our Guest Designer Tanya Rudd, from the blog Random Acts of Krafting.
|Guest Designer Tanya Rudd|
To create her project for the "Love" themed challenge this week Tanya used the Deluxe Sample Pack from The Kraft Outlet, and it came in useful when matching up the kraft color in her design paper. Tanya enjoyed using the text weight light kraft paper to make the scallop edged trim, and then matched it up and mounted the card and the different layers with the light kraft cardstock. Tanya said, "This kit is wonderful, it has allowed me to see the differences in thickness and in color of each variety of kraft paper." To see more of Tanya's work, visit her blog.
For this week's challenge, Aphra created a love inspired card. The base of her card is created from Lunch Bag Kraft Cardstock and a Buff Postcard Shipping Tag. After embellishing the postcard with some patterned paper and a heart-shaped doilie, she added some Black Baker's Twine. The centerpiece of the card is a layered butterfly cut from patterned paper and Translucent Vellum. The topmost layer of the butterfly is covered with Stardust Stickles and flatback pearl gems. You can see a close-up picture of the butterfly at Aphra's blog, My Scrappy Life.
For this week's "LOVE" challenge Kristina made a Love Notes journal for her husband. Brown Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock, Red Baker's Twine and a Round Metal Edge Tag were perfect for this handcrafted journal. Now she can leave Love Notes on his bedside table to read when he gets home from work. For more info and pictures of her journal, please visit Kristina's blog.
Audrey used some of her favorite Kraft Outlet supplies to make a romantic Valentine card this week. Lunch Bag Kraft cardstock and patterned papers create a backdrop for a vintage-inspired cupid frame and love themed banner. Embossing, stitching, and glitter add detail and dimension, along with a Small Kraft Shipping Tag that's been cut in half to extend its length to fit the card. Natural Tying Twill, Brown Baker's Twine, and a button add the final touches. For more details and photos, please visit Audrey's blog.
Thanks so much for stopping by today and don't forget to link up your projects for this week's challenge before Sunday February 13 (6:00 p.m., Eastern time).
