Special Guest Kraft Plus Challenge

This month we have teamed up with a fantastic challenge blog, Kraft Plus Challenges, for a joint Main Challenge of FACES and KRAFT BACKGROUND

Let's learn more about Kraft Plus Challenges through their own words:

We encourage you to join our Kraft Plus Community Facebook Group to join in the fun of our challenges, games, conversation, and be a part of a community which loves Kraft, challenges and inspiration.

We are so very proud to spotlight the gorgeous projects from the awesome designers from the Kraft Plus Team along with their Special Guests
who have been inspired by the May Main Challenge

Rachel Rigden: Funny faces, old supplies, new supplies, had fun!

Sandra Brimelow: I found this to be a tricky challenge, I didn't want to just use a photo with faces. Then I found these face stamps in my stash, and thought I would make some cards with them. So basically it was the graphics of the faces that inspired me.

Jo Lovespaper: I immediately knew what I wanted to do with my craft cardstock and which photos I would use also upon reading the theme.

Paula Perry: I certainly embraced the 'face' with this art journal page, using loads of Dina Wakley products.

Lizzy Hill: My focus on faces is the faces of my 3 gorgeous grand boys, now living in Vietnam. I've journaled about how the eyes are the window to our souls - it's a bit hard to read, but I wanted to sort of write a note to them about who I see them becoming.

Lizzy Crust: We had a holiday at the Sunshine Coast in January and came across this fabulous mural and of course I had to get a photo for this challenge. What funky and fun faces on this wall! This was my inspiration for this months Faces challenge.

Tracey Beer: I did something I rarely do - reworked a LO from about 15 years ago using the same title and most of the same photos. Will put them side by side in an album just to see the change in style.

Amy Churchward: Funny Faces it is for me! I took some quirky selfies whilst goofing around with the phone.

Heather McMahon: The word FACES made me think of the different faces that we wear during our lives. This led to think about the different 'hats' we wear. I seem to be switching from one hat to another a lot lately and sometimes it gets a bit overwhelming. I feel like it's a mystery which hat I'm going to be wearing from one hour to the next. With this in mind I made a tongue-in-cheek board game - spin the spinner and see which hat to wear next! This was a great way to use up paper scraps and leftover alphas. I printed an assortment of hats and typed the names of some of the 'hats' I wear on them. The spinner is an arrow and the face is from ArtStacks.

K+ Guest Designer Debra Beer: The Bent Leg Café is in the small town of Denman in the Hunter Valley NSW. We met up with my daughter and the 3 eldest grandkids, and of course coffee and milkshakes were a must have. We found this quaint Café called the Bent Leg Café. I saw the sign which really appealed to me, so I took this photo. A few days later when thinking about the challenge, I thought I have just the perfect photo, alas my layout came together beautifully.

K+ Guest Designer Michelle Jamieson: I found a great photo to use for Focus on Faces, which had approximately 16 lovely faces. I had to use a clock face embellishment to go with the challenge too. I found some very old Amy Tangerine "Stitched" collection in my stash and thought that was appropriate for this page. I love using washi tape on my layouts and it wouldn’t be a layout of mine without my signature doodled border and paint spots.

We hope that you will take inspiration from their designers' take on our challenge
and you will play along with the May Main Challenges on both sites!

You have until May 31st to link up! Remember, one project can be used to enter both challenges! Create a project on a KRAFT BACKGROUND using FACES as your inspiration. Enter your project in either one, or both, challenges. That’s it! Each challenge site will run their challenges as usual. If you're not familiar with Kraft Plus Challenges, they do not use a linky tool. Submit your project to them via the Kraft Plus Community Facebook Group or email them your project at We  hope you'll join in the fun!
