Kraft Outlet Guest Designer for November
My name is Debbie Marcinkiewicz and I am a wife and mother of two, wonderful sons! I am lucky enough to ‘work full time’ designing paper crafted treasures for several on-line boutiques and blogs currently! I have been a crafter all my life and have dabbled in just about everything. I owned my own sewing business for approximately three years in which I handmade American Girl doll clothes and quilts. It was a very natural progression to travel from quilting to paper crafting … the same basic techniques can be applied transitioning fabric to paper! I have been paper crafting seriously for approximately six years and have been professionally designing for almost two years!! I love anything vintage and shabby and adore to work with fabric, glitter, vintage images, textural embellishments … and enjoy using my sewing machine on my paper crafted designs!! I really find so much joy in inspiring others through my tiny, made from the heart treasures! I find much of my vintage inspiration around my pink Victorian home, antiques I’ve collected for the past 25 years and in nature! I am tickled to have the opportunity to design with the fabulous items carried through the Kraft Outlet!
For this 'sweet treat' gift Debbie covered a Lunch Bag Kraft CD Sleeve Envelope with some pretty patterned papers and stamped a yummy sentiment directly onto the papers. She decorated the pretty nose gay using some delicious Red Baker's Twine, a mini clothes pin and a Garnet Stick Pin. The x-small Grungy Prim Tag was stamped with a sentiment and then adhered a snipett of vintage trim and some holly leaves that she die cut with Lunch Bag Kraft Cardstock. The addition of some more Red Baker's Twine wrapped around the Lunch Bag Kraft CD Sleeve Envelope and around the glassine bag which holds a yummy cookie complete this vintage-inspired design!
Kraft Outlet DT Reveal for "Sweet Treats and Baker's Twine" Challenge
Jennifer had fun with this week's "sweet treats and baker's twine" challenge by making this card with a sweet gingerbread man! The card features coordinating holiday papers, a shaped tag, seam binding, baker's twine, paper tape, and some festive stick pins all on a light kraft card base. Head over to her blog for more information.
For this week's Sweet Treats & Baker's Twine challenge, Audrey filled a Small Cello Bag with yummy peppermint cookies and dressed it up with pretty holiday tags and trims for a special gift idea. White Twill Tying Tape is wrapped down the center of the cello bag and tied at the top along with a vintage button and Red Baker's Twine. Audrey stamped snowflakes on a Large Manila Shipping Tag, added color and glittered details, and embellished with Merry Christmas Paper Tape, a chipboard snowflake and button, and more baker's twine. A Small Manila Shipping Tag got a fun stamped snowman, pretty trim, and one final vintage button.
Giving out treat bags is one of Kim's favorite ways of sharing a little holiday joy. Kim used a Small Kraft Coffee Bag with Window and covered the front with pink snowflake designer paper. She then added a white paper doily, large white ribbon, and embellished with a snowflake die cut using Vintage Dictionary Paper, a jingle bell, and Red Baker's Twine available at The Kraft Outlet.
