the kraft journal

happy monday:) this week over at TKJ the theme is a guy thing.. i picked up a bunch of the cutest little prima stamps and have been just wanting to use this precious boy. does he not have the sweetest lil smirky smile.  these stamps are really inexpensive, like under 2 dollars and they are a nice size and stamp out like magic. LOVE them! as you know im not a stamper by nature but oh my  i keep finding excuses to always pull these out and use them :)  i stamped the boy and tacklebox using buff colored cardstock.  then cut out . i hand cut the cliff hes sitting on and made a little grass. then i adhered the cut out image so hed be sitting fishing over the edge. for the fishies i used my cricut and camp out cartridge.for the water i just used decorative edged scissors.  the base of the card is light kraft cardstock ( all the kraft c/stock i use  can be purchased at the kraft outlet) i also added a glassine lunch bag bags (again purchase from the kraft outlet) . i added stamps by creative visions and tucked some yummy sour worms in the brown bag and gold fish in the glassine bags. then stapled them shut. thanks so much for hanging out with me i love your company and you sweet words make me smile :) have a great day xxxshelly
