For our third Design Team assigment we got to work with Crate Paper's Farmhouse collection. It was awesome, I love this paper and all the great coordinating pieces. The buttons and brads are especially fun. The first part of our assignment was to create a 12 x 12 layout using multiple pieces of the patterned paper from the collection, brads, buttons, diecuts and chipboard stickers from the collection. We were also to incorporate some of the Tim Holtz resist kraft paper. Here's what I came up with.
Sweet Family Moments Layout
I didn't know what to do with the resist paper until I got the idea to create a recipe book. I trimmed a recipe card from the accent sheet and trimmed two pieces of the resist paper to serve as the pages inside the recipe book. Fold all pieces down the center and adhere the inside pieces towards the spine so you can open the book. I added a sticker that says Memories on top and embellished the fron cover. You could easily use this to hide some journaling or extra pictures you wanted to include.
Thanks for looking ~ Michelle
