Video Tutorial Monday #38 – Kraft Resist Cardstock

May 30, 2011

Hello there! I’m back at my family’s house in Wisconsin and am heading back up to Minneapolis tomorrow morning (with a car… yay!). It feels so nice to be back in a temperate climate. Ha! We’re all super exhausted from our trip and travelling all day yesterday. I’ve been editing photos and trying to catch up like a mad woman, so hopefully the transition into a normal schedule will be easier than I’m imagining. I have some really great pictures to share from the trip still can can’t wait to share them! In the mean time, I’m here to share my Video Tutorial Monday for this week. This one started out with a simple idea- to use this awesome paper from Tim Holtz:

Here’s the card that I made this week:

I was afraid of the card turning too dark with the black + darker purple, so I made sure to use lots of white and happy embellishments to balance everything out.

I’m so excited to be back at my crafting desk and ready to make stuff! You’re going to be seeing lots from me in the coming weeks. Awesome.

    I have a pkg of Kraft resist paper sitting on my desk right now. I’ve been looking at it thinking it’s so dark-what do I do with it!! Thanks to your great video, now I know just how to lighten it up. Can’t wait for your next tutorial!
