Gettin’ Krafty with Kate & Clare!

Today we have a super “krafty” layout from designer Kate Nolan-Denham.

I am having a great love of all things Kraft lately and I find myself reaching for the Tim Holtz Kraft-Core all the time . The sweet layout of my grandson I am sharing today is chock-full of this line!


I sanded the background cardstock, Kraft-Core Nostalgic Collection No.10, using my Sand it Gadget to give it a bit of an aged look.  To create the rulered mat, I embossed a piece of Kraft-Core Nostalgic Collection No.6, with Darice 12″ ruler embossing folders. After fussy cutting out each ruler, I inked them with Distress Ink and added them to a 9″x 8″ mat of Kraft-Core Nostalgic Collection No. 23.


The title work is die cut from Kraft-Core Nostalgic Collection No.21 and distressed a bit with the Sandit Gadget.  Of course, I always use the Dust Buddy everytime I sand.  The photo mat and die punched hearts are made from scraps of Core’dinations papers I had in my stash.  Got to love stash!
