First up we have a layout from Designer Kate Nolan-Denham:
Halloween is one of my favorite times of year! Definitely a time to for me to be imaginative and have fun. The Halloween layout I am sharing today shows a fun way to use Core’dinations Kraft-Core Seasonal Impressions as a fantastic background.
To make the words POP on the background, I not-so-gently sanded all the words on the Halloween Seasonal Impressions Cardstock and theen added some chalk. I really wanted the Kraft-Core to absorb the color in the orange and blue Chalking Inks so giving it a good sanding is the key.
The title work was super easy! I cut the title out of a 4.25″ x 5.5″ piece of Black Magic with my Cricut and then sanded it like crazy so the blue background would play on the title.
Next time you are creating a seasonal layout grab some of the Kraft-Core Seasonal Impressions!
