This month we are showcasing Timberline paper pack and I don't know about you, but I love this set, because it is so masculine and great for all those projects that need that bit of outdoors to it. I don't know about all of you but I have found it really hard to locate paper that is truly fitting for cards for men or scrapbook pages. Maybe its just where I live, but anyway, when I saw that we had a set that was outdoorsy, I couldn't help but think that this was perfect! It was fitting for those hard to create projects for the men in our lives!
That being said I was delighted to get to showcase this paper right before Father's Day. I made a set of four cards that are nearly identical in set up and almost in the papers I used, but I wanted to show that with the particular paper you can get a variety of looks just based on the cuts of paper you use. I used only one sheet of paper, it had the wood board look on the one side and the variety of sayings and outdoor images on the back. I also used a Daisy White CS base and stamped the image in Cocoa ink on a piece of Cashmere CS, which I then used my sponge with more Cocoa ink to distress the edges of that small piece.
I cut a 3"x5 1/2" strip of the wood grained side, then a 2"x4" strip of the otherside. I dovetailed it and layered it on top. I added my Saying and gave it a bit of pop by using 3D tape. So simple and yet so cute. I love trying to make more complex cards, but I still love being to whip out multiple cards that I know will look great. This is just one sheet in the set and you could use this same layout with any of the other sheets or even any other sheet, but this set is absolutely fantastic!
I also managed to use the thin strip at the top of the page to decorate the inside of two of the cards. I loved how simply I was able to tie the inside with the outside! If you want to add this paper pack to your collection, go to my website and order yours today!
