The one with some Kraft!

I know a lot of people are fans of the Kraft paper.... I am not one of them. I do love how it looks and have tried it many times but I can't make it work. When I saw this line from We R I was excited to try it out.... its Kraft color but not the texture - a little easier for me to work with....
These pictures are from Disney this past Christmas. Jess and I picked pearls at the Japanese pavilion. I think I have done this every time I have been to Disney. I thought the papers lent themselves to an Asian-ish theme. Added some BG pieces from the hopscotch line (cut the frame from a journal spot!) and lots of pearls!

The banner is made by punching the circles out from another sheet of paper and folding them over some twine. Hard to tell by the picture, but I also did some scalloped doodling around the banner. Might be the least amount of paper I have every used on a layout! lol...

Since I had to much left over - I did make a second layout. I still need to photograph it yet!

So... whats your stance on Kraft... love or hate?????

Have a great day,

I love kraft as backing cardstock or for card blanks and journalling cards. Love your layout :)

Great layout!
Love kraft and could totally live with just that for the rest of my scrapping days. It goes with everything!

I start to freak out when my kraft stash starts to dwindle. Definitely a go-to for me!
I had no idea THIS would be your "challenge line" this month -- but you sure rocked it (which I totally expected, of course!)

I keep a good supply of kraft cardstock on hand. I love to use it with red and black and other bright color combinations. Great layout - love the frame and scalloped border around your photos!
