Get Your Bling On At Kraft Plus!

Hello again!

Have you seen the fantastic new Aussie challenge site called Karft Plus? I love it! It's only been operating a month and it's been a huge success already. Take a look here.

I was asked to design a layout for Tinby Designs, makers of my fave products - Metallic Melts.

The challenges are a bit different each month. You can make just about anything but it must be on a kraft base. This month there's a sketch for inspiration, plus you have to add something that glitters or shines. Of course Metallic Melts were perfect for this!

You can find more details on the challenge here

Here's the sketch for March:

I stuck very closely to the sketch as I really liked it and it worked well for me. Here's what I made:

Meet my niece's kitten, Billy. He's incredibly active, intelligent and funny. And sooo cute!

I used the Metallic Melts in different ways here. I added it to chipboard stars from The Dusty Attic and scattered them across the page. I added some directly to areas stamped with clear Versamark ink to get that random feature in the background.

Behind the photo I punched a border then added pink and gold Metallic Melts to it. Beneath that I used a stamp and embossed the image and beneath that again I stamped a strip between two strips of washi tape, embossed the strip, then removed the washi. Further down I stamped Versamark ink through a template before adding the Metallic Melts. I also added two colours of Metallic Melts to the title.

I hope you can join in the challenge. The site is bright and chatty and it's loads of fun.

Happy scrappin'!
