Blog Hop Day Five: Kraft Cardstock Feature & Robin's Nest Giveaway

Kraft cardstock has become a neutral for many of us!  I know I use it as much as I use black or white cardstock.  It adds a natural, earthy feel to a project...but I also thinks it adds an extra punch to a Clean and Simple project that plain white can't pull off.  Today we've got some marvelous projects from our designers and reader submissions!  And on the topic of reader submissions...we're looking for stamped projects for next week.  If you've got something to share send it our way and we may just feature it!  Projects can be sent to practicalscrapperslayouts@gmail.com - keep reading to find out about our giveaway today!

We'll see you tomorrow for one more giveaway!

I always start with white, or patterned paper. Hardly ever use kraft.

I used to only use white card stock but now I use Kraft card stock more. It just seems to match everything!

Kraft card stock is a fun new neutral. I have a little trouble getting adhesive to stick to it but I love it. Thanks for the chance to win and I am a follower. patnbobcuddy at gmail dot com

Stacie (craft-princess) said...

Great projects!!

I typically start with white because I don't have that much kraft but I LOVE the way the kraft looks for a base!

Colleen B. said...

I love to start with Kraft paper. I think it looks great for my outdoor pages, farm pages and pages from my daughter's 4H projects. I also find it to be more affordable when I buy it in a package.

Irit Shalom said...

I love Kraft, white less..I also love Kraft for card base- my favorite!!

Lindy said...

I'd say kraft or pattern. I don't use white very often!

Lisa aka Myran said...

I actually use alot of both! Depends on what mood I am in and what I'm gonna make ;)

Lisa R. said...

I usually use white, but I am really liking the kraft paper! Thanks for the inspiration to use it! TFS joy4umetoo at hotmail dot com

Becky Dunham said...

I love the look of Kraft but have not used it a ton. I hardly ever start a project with white paper, usually a different color. I need to get a stock of kraft paper though because I absolutely love it! Since I have very little in my stash, i don't think to use it :)

Random Memories said...

I would say Kraft! Maybe because I have grungy boys. =) Love all the super layouts and cards here today! Wow!

RAP said...

I prefer Kraft especially when paired with lots of bold color or for out door layouts.

thekolbes said...

Love them. I just bought some Kraft cardstock to try out. I haven't done anything with Kraft yet. Thanks for sharing
