Louise just loved creating with this fabulous pack of Paper Trunk Krafty Collection patterned papers. What’s more, they are made from recycled paper. This is a wonderfully coordinated pack of black and kraft patterned papers with a sheet of diecut shapes that suit journaling, embellishing or photo matting.
Whilst the contrast between the black printed pattern and the Kraft background is bold, Paper Trunk has used fabulous classic design that lends itself to a broad range of layout/card styles and designs.
For this particular layout Louise has softened the bold stripe pattern with a layer of paint which has an overlay of Vintage Pink Glimmer Mist.
A Diecut from the pack has been used as a subtle matt/background for her photo, which has then been framed with a regal shaped frame, which has also been given the Glimmer Mist treatment.
For this layout Louise has picked up on the bold polka dot pattern and used it as inspiration for her layout design; incorporating the Basic Grey metal book plate to frame her photo, and with the Glimmer Misted backgrounds for her flower embellishments.
Whilst the polka dot pattern on this background is a little more subtle Louise has chosen to continue the theme with subtle design elements; a round photo, round Hambly Studios doilie rub-ons, the Basic Grey alpha dot stickers, and random spots of Patina Glimmer Mist.
For two years the lovely Jolene Pienaar has been designing stunning layouts for Paper Trunk, and she has kindly agreed to allow us to share some of them here. Here Jolene has created a layout full of movement and life despite it’s near monochrome state, using papers from the new Krafty range alongside vibrant turquoise tissue paper flowers.
The wonderful vivid vibrancy of the Paper Trunk Socialite range is stunning against the neutral Kraft papers as Jolene shows in these two layouts. She combines the two with perfect balance, the one line complementing the other and adds touches of gorgeous girly detail with handcut flowers and flourishes.
Here Jolene has combined the Krafty journalling elements with the 1974 range of patterned papers to create a lively and colourful layout that could have worked just as well with more masculine photos as it does with her very beautiful daughter. Jolene, thanks for allowing us to showcase your amazing talent here.
Finally, here is a simple but fabulous card and OTP creation by Corinne Stevens. You can see from Corinne’s creations that the classic Krafty patterned range suits a broad range of design options, and is a striking and classic choice that has the 'FAB' factor!
Lovely girly colours and funky patterns are the stand out for this range of Paper Trunk. With a few cut out patterns from the paper foam mounted giving dimension there was little else to be done apart from the title and journaling. Paper Trunk has done it again.
From one of Paper Trunks first ranges, Jaimie has created this stunning layout making beautiful use of not only the papers but Heidi Swapps mask alphabet.
We thank the lovely Alison Shearer for joining us as a guest dt member this month and for creating this and the following two stunning layouts. She shares a little information about each.
I loved these papers. They are so bright and colourful and easy to mix and match to get lots of different looks. The circles on this paper were great for this LO about my daughters netball adventures - plus the red worked so well with her red shirt.
I loved the bright funky colours against the stark black background, especially the bright green and red together. I had been wanting to scrap this close up pic of my daughter for a while and these papers seemed just right to me.
The Hambly abstract flowers also worked really well with the Paper Trunk range.
The large abstract flower design on the brown background was a lot of fun to work with but I knew I wanted to keep the embellishments fairly simple so the flower didn't overwhelm the photo. Hand sewing and buttons dressed it up nicely.
When Cheryl first sent Jaimie the Paper Trunk Chipboard wheel - she wasn't quite sure what to do. It wasn't until she walked past her daughters bedroom door that was slowly being covered in post it notes telling where she was that the idea struck to create a "Where am I" wheel. Jaimie covered the chipwheel with lovely PT Jellybean paper, distressing the bottom wheel and inking all edges. She added her daughters name over the top of the HS glitter florals with the lovely scrapworks glitter alphas.
Then Jaimie took photos of her daughter and added them to the windows. Now her daughter can show where she is and what she is doing without covering her door in yellow post-it's!!
we love paper trunk not least because they provide a greener alternative for scrapping. the papers are printed on recycled cardstock using vegetable based inks. they are rightfully proud of being one of the first manufacturers to use recycled cardstock. two fabulous new lines, bold and bright.
