Loving 'crate paper'
At one of the scrapbook expos last year I met the owner of 'Crate Paper' and fell in love with their products. This company is based out of Utah and last year was his first CA show. Their company provides complete coordinated kits (no sample layout ideas) but the kits come with paper, ribbon, rubons, 3-D letters, etc. It is enough to make multiple coordinated layouts. Here are two single page layouts that were created with the "Static" paper line.
For the first page I cut individual pieces of the patterned paper in different lengths and added an embellishment to the end of each (ribbon or brad). I added 3D journaling words to a few of the strips. Then I used a paper distresser along the brown cardstock to make the white core show.
For the second page I tore the paper at the top and bottom of the page to make it look rugged. To the left and right photo backer I added an extra embellishment. To create this look take a square piece of paper, fold two of the corners to meet at the middle, then hole punch each folded portion and add an eyelet. Complete the look by threading ribbon through the eyelets and tie a knot. (no photos for this one yet, but I'm thinking of Mr. Nolan riding his big wheel)
