Scraps of thoughts, photos and art

I should come up with a clever t-shirt saying that has something to do with a love of cardstock! There’s just nothing better than a wonderful solid color of paper with a texture. Easy to go with everything, yet sometimes overlooked, cardstock is as necessary to scrapbooking as adhesive, don’t you think? My ode to cardstock really lies with Prism Papers, the wonderful makers of Prismatics and now Seaside cardstock textures and colors. I must admit that I also love the new entry to the cardstock playing field, Core’dinations. That fabulous textured with a color core cardstock. I MUST use that more too – good stuff indeed.

We’ve reviewed both of these cardstock lines at ScrapFriends with accolades for both. They are different thus both are needed! Yes, I said needed. 🙂

Here are some projects using the Seaside Collection from Prism. I can’t wait to use it more! The layout uses a die from Spellbinders to cut the corners out of metal. The stamps are from Starving Artistamps and Inque Boutique and the photos are tinted using Distress Ink. The blanket stitching along the sides of the boot paper is actually a stamp. I’m good at lining up the stamps aren’t I? lol, I love the texture on this page.

This card was created using Stamp Camp images and PK Glitz embossing powder, oh and another Spellbinders die for the label frame. FUN!
