GDT - Kristy Young

Introducing Kristy Young...

Kristy describes herself as bubbly, fun, easily excited and a shabby chic paper designer! Learning new techniques is one of her favorite aspects of paper crafting. Her favortie color combo of the moment is Kraft and Chocolate.

Kristy just LOVES her Tim Holtz Paper Distresser and will show you why in her beautiful project.

When asked what her crafting goals were, Kristy answered like so many of us...BETTER ORGANIZATION of her crafting space. We are right there with you Kristy!


One of Kristy's greates sources of inspiration is her best friend, Kellie Winnell. She also credits the DCRU DT designs that she sees each week. Thank you, Kristy!!!! We appreciate that you find our examples "inspiring".

Let's take a moment to check out the project that, Kristy has made for us and get a little information on how she acheived this fantastic look...



   
Hi my name is Kristy, I'm from Melbourne, Australia. I was sooo thrilled when Claudia and Gwen asked me to be a Guest Designer and share a tecnique with you. I chose to share distressing. I LOVE distressing and do it on almost every card. I use a Tim Holtz Paper Distresser which DCRU offers in the store. 

(Before)


(After)
 

To acheive this look you take the T.H. paper distresser and rub it back and forth on the edges of your paper. And that is it, how easy is that!! I do it to almost every strip of paper I add to my card, including nestability shapes etc.



Here is my completed card...

Thanks for looking I hope you enjoyed.

Now...isn't this just the prettiest little card. When Kristy said she was a shabby chic girl, I think she hit the nail on the head. She is a fabulous shabby chic paper artist!

Your card is so cute. Thank you for sharing this technique. I have heard and also seen the Tim Holtz paper distressing tool(just the actual tool, not the technique) and I have also seen the circle flowers that have been distressed. I didn't realize that was the tool to create that look. Thank you for connecting the dots. :0) XOXO, Julie. :0)

Thanks for the tips Kristy; I've always wanted to try distressing paper like that. Just haven't worked up the courage. I think I'll be getting one of those Tim Holtz Tools. Your card is absolutely beautiful... as always! Thank you so much for being a guest designer for us today.
