I guess you know by now, I love, love, love Crate Paper!
I can barely wait for each new collection and buy more than I need because I never want to run out. I’m certain Crate Paper and the lovely Maggie Holmes are making it just for me! Even our customers have said, “oh, this is Kelly paper”.

Don’t you know, I bought it all ! I’ve made my first layout with a few of my favourites! I photographed this beautiful vintage Carousel when Mr Korner and I visited Paris last summer. The photo’s were so perfect for the paper.
The chipboard and sticker sheets are so pretty! I also decided to fashion a heart from some of the UPC strips. They’re the strip that shows the pattern on the other side of the paper that we trim off. Why throw them in the bin?
I simply cut out a heart and taped on all my strips. Once trimmed into shape, I used my craft pick to make the holes for some hand sewing. I was pretty happy with the results!
To balance my hand sewn heart, I made a small shaker box using a frame from the tag sheet and one of my photo’s.
My other photo was layered with paper and more chipboard from the collection. Don’t forget to pile on the thread! I chose to use Gold thread for extra pizzazz.
Paris ❤ Paris ❤ Paris
I stamped the title with Tim Holtz Foam Stamps and Oxide Inks, then gave them definition by tracing each letter with a brush tipped Faber Castell PITT pen in soft black.
Of course there is lots of colourful splatter, sequins and stitching to add that punch of texture we all love. It’s a little bit nostalgic and the fresh colours pop when layered all together! I hope you’ll love it as much as I do!

Ps. Thank you Mr Korner for our romantic Paris Holiday! Smooch!
