Scrap Our Stash Challenge #1 – Kraft It Up

There is new ownership over at Scrap Our Stash.  Come see the changes and check out the new challenges!  Our first one is Kraft It Up.  Create a layout using 50% kraft (paper, embellishments, etc.)  The stash buster is metal.  Use at least 3 pieces of metal embellishments (eyelets, brads, gears, hinges, etc.) on your layout.

Here’s my layout:

Imagine Layout by Wendy Kessler

Supplies used: Close to My Heart Kraft Paper, unknown pattern paper from my stash (it’s from a stack), Close to My Heart Artiste Cricut cartridge, Creative Memories Circle Cutter, mulberry paper from stash, Making Memories Charmed Photo Corners, Making Memories Metal Flowers, Making Memories Metal Word, and Close to My Heart Milepost Shapes (retired).

First of all I have to say that I recently bought some Kraft paper because I see it everywhere and honestly…I hate it.  So this was a true challenge for me!  In an attempt to use up some of my kraft paper, I used it as the background of my layout.  The decorative circle is cut from the Artiste cartridge (p.60 – Accent 4 – Shift – Fit to Page).  I took the scraps from the inside of this circle image and flipped them around (double-sided paper) and used them to create the flower.  I added another circle of mulberry paper that was buried deep in my stash.  Do you remember this stuff?  I even used my Creative Memories circle cutter.  The shapes in the corners of the layout are layered metal pieces, 2 photo corners topped with the flower.

Now head over to Scrap Our Stash and submit your own layout.  You have until March 29th.
