Kraft Outlet Guest Designer for December

My name is Linda Abadie. I am a registered nurse, practicing as the Director of Clinical Education at GoldenLiving- Sleepy Hollow Manor Nursing and Rehab facility in Annandale, Virginia, USA. My husband and I have been married for eight years and we have two children, Nicholas (6) and Christopher (3). I started scrapbooking in 2007 when my husband's ARMY career took us to the far reaches of the globe. Most of my layouts are inspired by daily activity; either at home with my family or at work, Nursing. I enjoy this hobby as it allows me to express and capture special heartfelt moments in my life. Many of my friends consider my style as “eclectic”, full of bright colors, and happy. I am able to create a full layout combining mixed media and hybrid scrapbook technique.

Linda Abadie
Linda had fun with this week's Christmas Tags and Gift Card Holders challenge by creating this bright and cheerful 'Be Merry' tag featuring Kraft Outlet products. The tag showcases products from the  Deluxe Sample Pack, as well as the Ruler Twill Ribbon, Office Chipboard Button, Family Tree Journaling Card, and Lille Tag from 7gypsies. Linda highlights the multiple layers of embellishments, including red and green buttons, cute pearls, multiple ribbon, and distressing technique to create this adorable Christmas tag.

Kraft Outlet DT Reveal for "Christmas Tags or Gift Card Holders" Challenge

Tracy MacDonald

Tracy created a simple gift card holder based on a Splitcoast Stampers tutorial.  The base of her card was created with Brown Kraft Cover Weight cardstock.  She added some designer paper and tied a bow around the top panel with some White Twill Tape.  For the inside of the card, she trimmed, stamped, punched, and attached two Mini Lunch Bag Kraft envelopes to hole the gift card and a tag.

Jennifer Cuthbertson
Jennifer created this oversized tag that would be perfect for an oversized box! The tag base is a postcard tag that was covered with three strips of paper tape and a couple of reinforcers and stamped with a wonderful sentiment. The felt tree was covered with brad "ornaments" and the card was finished with a seam binding bow and cross charm.

Kim Duran
Kim created a gift card holder based off the tutorial posted here at The Kraft Journal! For this gift card holder, Kim updated the Thanksgiving theme to reflect a snowy holiday gift. She used a Small Glassine Bag to house a gift card for her daughter, then embellished with Blue Baker's Twine, a Round Metal Edge Tag, and a die cut snowflake using Vintage Dictionary Paper. Kim even added snow to the button by filing the edges of white paper. This makes a great and inexpensive way to add that snowy effect!

Audrey Pettit
Audrey created a fun gift tag using some of her favorite wintery stamps and a Large Kraft Shipping Tag. She stamped and embossed snowflakes directly on the tag and added a sentiment tag that was stamped on Brown Kraft Coverweight Cardstock. Audrey stamped the snowman on Buff Ivory Coverweight Cardstock for contrast, trimmed it out, and added it to the tag along with a snowy hill made from white cardstock and a glittered candy cane. A bow of Victoria Seam Binding, Red Baker's Twine, and Hang Tag String finish things off.
