Debbie Carrier of Scrappin' My Heart Out
Hello, my name is Debbie Carriere and I am very excited to be the September Guest Designer for The Kraft Journal !  I am a stay-at-home mom to three kids, paper crafting addict, and wife of 10 years to a very understanding husband.  We live north of Boston, Massachusetts.  I started scrapbooking about 6 years ago and was introduced to stamping just over 3 years ago.  I started blogging just over a year ago and really became passionate about card making soon after!  Most nights after my kids are in bed, you will find me creating in my "scrap room" until after I should have gone to bed!  Kraft cardstock is one of my go-to products, so I am so happy to be here this month!  My other loves are my family, the outdoors, reading, and coffee! 

Kraft Outlet Design Team Reveal for
"Witches, Ghosts or Goblins"

Tracy MacDonald
Tracy created a whimsical little Halloween card using a base of Brown Kraft Cover Weight cardstock.  Designer paper and cardstock layers make up the background for the Copic colored witch and cat.  A crescent moon of Buff Ivory Cover Weight cardstock lights the way.  Tracy added some Twill Tape loops secured with brads and a button threaded through some Earthy Hemp Cord for embellishment.

Audrey Pettit
Audrey had fun creating a spooky witch Halloween card for this week's challenge. She started with a card base of Lunch Bag Kraft Cardstock and pieced patterned papers. She layered the center of the card with burlap, de-constructed doily trim, and Savannah Seam Binding, along with a vintage button tied with Hang Tag String. The moon was created from more Lunch Bag Kraft Cardstock and the center of the paper doily, and is the perfect backdrop for the vintage Halloween witch image. The witch was printed on Buff Ivory Coverweight Cardstock and fussy cut, then popped up with foam dots for a bit of dimension. A hand-stamped sentiment strip and black pearls are the final details.

Kim Duran
Since Kim believes that witches', ghosts', and goblins' main diet consists of candy corn, she created some little treat boxes to keep them happy. Kim stamped some spiderwebs onto Small Kraft Pillow Boxes and decorated with patterned paper and a black scallop border. She stamped Halloween labels onto Buff Ivory Cardstock and punched a small hole to create a tag. To finish her treat boxes, she used Black Baker's Twine, ribbon, and matching buttons.
