Friendzy Friday~Corrugated

A great way to add texture to your layouts is by incorporating corrugated letters or papers. Jillibean was one of the first manufactuers to make 'cardboard' mainstream and now many other
companies have jumped in.





I used a sheet of kraft corrugated from Creative Imaginations as a background.




Don't worry about it bulking up your albums as it's not very thick.






I used Jillibean letters and made my trees out of cardboard for a homespun feel on this Christmas layout





Another way to use corrugated letter sheets is by cutting out the negatives like this layout where I used it to show the number 7, how old my son is.





To achieve the corrugated look you can also use a paper crimper as I did on the circles of this layout.




We have lots of corrugated letters, papers and shapes in store now so be sure to check them out and add them to your next project!
