Specialty papers from DCWV


This page is my example for Sketch #128 at Sketch Savvy.  I wanted to show you how I used mostly older DCWV papers from the Safari Chic stack with a couple of prints from other older stacks, and updated them with some of the new specialty papers from DCWV.


 I used the awesome gold chevron vellum from the Foiled Vellum Stack for one of the layers under the photo and then also for a strip along the lower edge. It adds a nice touch of gold to my safari-ish page. The coral banner and strip along the lower edge are from the Corrugate stack and those corrugated papers are just the best for adding a bit of texture and depth without bulk. Plus they are easily cut, stitched thru, and can be punched with most punches.


I got the design for the animal border from the signage at Animal Kingdom.


Here is a look at the stacks. There are actually a couple of different color combos of the corrugate stack. There are also patterned cork and burlap stacks, handmade paper, canvas ... lots of options for that extra pop on your next layout.

The DAK border is absolutely amazing. And what a great idea to fringe the corrugated paper! I also love how the corrugated paper works for banner flags!
