Here is one more project I made with my crimper. The crimper and kraft paper work well together to mimic cardboard. On this card, after I crimped the paper, I rubbed white ink on top for that painted, distressed look.
Supplies: paper, Basic Grey. die cuts, Noteworthy and Words and Expressions design cards, Slice. punch, EK Success. pen, trim, flowers and rhinestone.
This card was a lift of a card that I cut out of an old Paper Crafts and stuck in my idea journal. I'm sorry that I don't remember who to give credit too.
My idea journal is just an extra composition notebook I had. I keep it simple, just cut and paste magazine pictures that inspire me. When I glue a picture in my idea journal, I like to write down why I was inspired to save the picture. That way when I look through the book a month or so from now I know what I wanted to try.
