Kraft Outlet Guest Designer Linda Abadie
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.
We'd also like to take a moment to sincerely thank Linda for joining us as our Guest Designer these past weeks. Her unique style and colorful designs have complimented our regular Design Team and we've been simply delighted to share her talents with all of our readers here at The Kraft Journal!

Kraft Outlet DT Reveal for "Anything Goes" Challenge
Debbie used the "Anything Goes" challenge to create this "Twilight" inspired card. Starting with a base of Lunchbag Kraft cardstock she layered a piece of patterned paper and a piece of a Vintage Dictionary Page and stitched them in place. She layered and stitched a second patterned paper with a notebook edge Lunchbag Kraft cardstock border. Debbie wrapped some Natural twill tape around the card front, tied a bow and topped with a button threaded with Earthy Hemp Cord tied in a bow. Using two Small Kraft Shipping tags, she created her sentiment panel. She layered a small piece of Buff Ivory Cover Weight cardstock over the bottom tag to create a backdrop for the burlap heart embellishment. Check her blog for additional information.
Tracy created a fun nostalgic tag using a Buff French "Carte Postale" Postcard Shipping Tag as her base. She used the Tim Holtz rusted enamel technique using Old Paper and Vintage Photo Distress inks on the postcard and then added some Vintage Dictionary page pieces. Tracy created the marquee with a die cut piece of chipboard that she inked, embossed, and added rhinestones to. The marquee frames a 7 Gypsies Mini Receipts Ephemera Label and has a piece of Tim Holtz film strip ribbon stapled to it. The stars were cut from chipboard and Kraft Glassine. The glassine was inked with alcohol ink. The watch image is a 7 Gypsies rub on from Steampunk Time Rubbings. There's a bottle cap sticker from the Lost and Found Salvage Stickers and some black Twill Tape. Tracy's image, colored with Prismas, was printed on Lunch Bag Kraft cardstock multiple times, layered, inked, and covered with a coat of Rock Candy Crackle paint.
