It's not just plain cardstock...

by Carrie Walz | October 24, 2012

Hello and happy Wednesday RRBF fans and followerers. Today I wanted to show you how to work with cardstock only. I know you have them...those pictures you just really want to use but you don't have the "perfect" papers or embellishments. Well, don't scratch the idea of using those photos. The answer is cardstock, yes, I said cardstock. Cardstock can be used and when you get done it can create that perfect layout for that perfect picture you almost didn't use. RRBF has wonderful cardstock...they have embossed cardstock, they have glitter cardstock and they have those hard to find colors of cardstock making it easy to turn that layout into a layout that jumps out at you. A little bit of hand made flowers that I made rolling up some cardstock, some bling and some punches....

I did the same thing with this layout only the pictures were a bit blurry in color so I changed them to black and white. Changing them to black and white help hide the imperfections and made it really easy to get creative with the colors...everything goes with black and white! I used more rolled flowers, some bling, more punches and cut some letters out for my title....

I hope this encourages you to not be afraid to use just cardstock anymore and use those wonderful photos that you thought were not so matchable.

Thanks for stopping by,
