I have started to notice that I am using alot of KRAFT......

I have this system of once I do a layout, I throw it on a shelf on my bookcase to put in an album later when I can be bothered to sort out the timeline etc, however this always ends up with me having a huge pile OK massive pile of layouts that needed to be sorted. But going through the pile I have noticed that at the moment I am using a huge amount of Kraft card stock, I seem to be loving its versatility, you can mist it, ink it, paint it, distress it, I could go on and on.

So during one of my lack of mojo days and trying to find some inspiration I stumbled across a blog dedicated to using Kraft..... HEAVEN !!!!!; have monthly challenges, and I have to say Septembers was a little bit of a challenge......  This months challenge is to create a layout using Kraft or Kraft Patterned Paper as your base and to use FABRIC & STITCHING. Now this could be machine or hand stitching the choice is yours and your fabric can be anything from a flower you have made from fabric, fabric ribbons, fabric strips or to use fabric instead of paper the inspiration is up to you but we must be able to see fabric and stitching on your layouts!!!

So this got me thinking and it worked out really well considering that I just brought an i-top and I wanted to play with fabric since I have some fabric now I am branching out to the sewing world thanks to a BFF xxxx.
