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!

Core’dinations Supplies:

Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Nostalgic Collection

Tim Holtz & Ranger Distress Collection

Sandit Gadget

Dust Buddy

Other Supplies:

Darice Ruler Embossing Folder

Tim Holtz Distress Ink

Pebbles Paper

EK Success Punches

Dienamic Dies

Want2Scrap Bling

Helmar ZapDots & Premium Craft Glue

And ..the GREAT thing about Kraft Core is you can use a little or a lot!  Check out Clare Buswell’s card here using all kinds of Core’dinations Cardstock including a paper ruffle flower from Kraft Core.  You can mix & match Core beautifully, don’t you think? Add some of the Tim Holtz Ranger Distress collection, too!

Check out more of Clare’s paper ruffles HERE. Gorgeous!

Introducing Kate Nolan-Denham

Wow, Tuesday already? We hope you took the time to remember and thank all of our service men and women that have sacrificed so much for us to have our freedom. THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
We are back up and finishing off our last week (week three) of our Design Team Introductions!  If you have been following us  make sure you check our WINNER page HERE to see if you won!
Today we are saying hello too…..Kate Nolan-Denham!
Here is a little bit about Kate:

Hello! My name is Kate Nolan-Denham, but I answer to Katie, Mom, and Mimi, too. I live in Maine with my dear hubby (Scott), our youngest daughter(Lily) and two dogs(Lexi & Ryder). Our oldest daughter(Kass) lives nearby with our two grandsons(Chase & Seth). We are so lucky to live in a small community that is situated only 45 minutes from the ocean and the mountains. By day, I am an Office Manager for a Speech-Language Pathology Center. I love my day job because the women I work with do great work and have huge hearts! I was encouraged to start scrapbooking by a dear friend who insisted that scrapbooking was “so me.” She was right! Twelve years later my love of paper crafting has evolved to include scrapbooking, card making, stamping, altered art, and a dabbling of mixed-media. My style is clean and colorful (most of the time). I have had the honor of being on several design teams during the last few years, but I am especially excited about joining the Core’dinations team. Now I can check it off my bucket list!

Check out more awesome projects on Kate’s blog HERE!

So who is ready for a layout all about Kate?????
If you were taking a sneak into my Instragram account, you would see these pictures.  Amazing how a phone can caputre those moments that define you!
I wanted my layout to be a reflection of me, not only with photos, but also in style.  The clean, colorful design of my layout is what I consider my papercrafting style.

I scored my background Core’dinations Cardstock at the 1″ vertical mark and then every 2.4″ horizontally. This created a grid in which I sanded to give a little pop.  Each of the arrows is die cut out of differerent colored Core’dinations Cardstock. I used my Cricut to cut the titlework out of Core’dinations Cardstock, too.

Core’dinations Supplies:
Tim Holtz & Ranger Distress Collection 12″x12″ and Cut & Emboss
Jillian Dot Spotted 6″x6″
Other Supplies:
Fabscraps Pearls
Pebbles Patterned Paper
American Crafts Jute
Helmar Glues
Cricut

And……………….we need a winner of our Vintage Cardstock, right??????

Today is our last day of our week with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.

If you are looking for crop winners we will be posting that today in a separate post.

Here are some Technique Tips for this layout from Design Team Member April Derrick: ICut up the photo corners and turned them into arrow embellishments for my page.Instead of placing a cd into the self adhesive CD photo pocket,  turn it into a holder for an interactive page embellishment. It’s a small booklet that you can slide in and out of the clear pocket and it has journaling and another photo on the inside!   Brilliant!
