Blue and white and kraft and red...

The Design Dollies are back again in 2011!  We have re-packaged our fun, familiar challenge categories into a brand new format, and challenges will now post every Monday.  Here's my first Dollie-creation for the year, using the colours of BLUE, WHITE, KRAFT and RED:

I'm submitting my layout at:

# Papertake Weekly ~ Anything goes (including the optional extra - add lace)

Continuing my love of all things Kraft, I pulled out some more and created this layout:

I'm submitting this layout at:

# The Kraft Journal ~ Challenge #1 ~ Flourish
I used: Kraft for the base cardstock, MME 'Life Stories' journalling card (this range is all printed on Kraft cardstock), and  the flourish is from my old Maya Road chipboard stash - painted (Kaisercolour 'Metallic Gold' acrylic paint) and threaded onto the ribbon.
# Really Reasonable Ribbon ~ Challenge #15 ~ Something New
I used: MME 'Lost & Found - Madison Avenue' papers and glitter diecut shape, and pale pink organza ribbon which I bought especially for this layout.


  1. Hey Karen!! LOVE your take on the Color challenge for the Dollies!! And your second layout is stunning too!!!
    I just wanted to ask to see if maybe you could help me out, I am supposed to be GDT for the Dollie's this month and I had emailed my 3 projects to Adina but I haven't heard anything and my project for the Color challenge wasn't posted with the other DT's projects. Sorry to bother you with this, but if you could help me out that would be great!! I posted my project on my blog and added it to the Mr Linky under the color challenge already. Thanks so much!!!
