Kraft It Up - September

Another challenge blog I love, love, love and haven't participated in lately is Kraft It Up. No real reason. I suppose I've just been busy and not scrapping as much. LOL I still love scrapping with kraft! September's challenge was to use the following colour palette ..

Not my usual colours. I mean I like green, but that particular hue of green? Not really. But you know how it goes, I had some perfect photos and I was feeling inspired (despite the green!) and this resulted ..

His love conquers all
products used:
cardstock - kraft
patterned paper - Echo Park Yours Truly, Echo Park Times & Seasons, My Little Shoebox Garden Party
alphas - Dymo labeller, TLC Quik Letters rub-on alphabet
embellishments - Making Memories staples, Washi Tape, handmade tag, journaling spot
tools - SU punches, TCW Chevron template
stamps - Cocoa Daisy
messy stuff - texture paste, Archival Ink, StazOn ink, own mist made with TH Distress Ink re-inker (Black Soot) and SU All Purpose Ink (Frost White)

As per usual I went to my 'creative director' for his opinion on my LO. Much to my dismay he doesn't like it!  :O  I know!!! Like so many others, GB doesn't like having his photo taken .. at all! He especially (apparently!) doesn't like this particular photo. Oops! So it's a zero out of ten from GB for this one, but I love it and it is for me so really that's what matters.   :)


  1. I absolutely adore how you've used the chevron pattern in different ways throughout the gives your page cohesion. This really is a stunning LO! Thanks Alz for having a go at KIU this month!

  2. Oh I really love this one - one of my favs for sure!!! Thanks for playing along with us at KIU :)

  3. What a great layout Alz! I love all the chevrons and the photo is great too, I can't see why he doesn't like it.

  4. Oh this is a GREAT male page. I love how you have used the palette and all those little details look wonderful. I'm really loving your scrap style! Thank you for joining us at Kraft It Up! Hope to see more of you.
