Hope you are all well. I had a good time yesterday at Ally Pally. It was lovely as I managed to meet Nicky (one of my fellow teamies on Imagination Crafts) and also met up with Marianne, one of my lovely blogging buddies. Of course, I had to buy a few crafting goodies while I was there lol. I will try and post some piccies tomorrow.
Today I have been having a play with some new 12 x 12 papers from Kraftyhands. There are five new paper sets which will be available on the website tomorrow. Each paper stack will be sold in packs of 12 for £12.50. They are all printed on 190gsm cardstock and the quality and colours are simply stunning.
I have used one of the paper sets called 'Man About Town' for my card.
I chose the paper that I wanted to use and added some gilding flakes around the edge for a more vintage feel. This was then matted onto brown coredinations cardstock. The topper is a die cut from the Man About Town range at Kraftyhands. I added some squares of cordinations that I tore and then put through my ribbler. The Happy Birthday sentiment was cut on my Scan N Cut machine. For embellishments I added some wooden cogs from Hobbycutz and some card candi.
Here is a look at the Man About Town paper stack. A great variety of papers that are just perfect for male and vintage creations.
Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think. Off now to do some commenting and catching up.
