Kraft Outlet Guest Designer Laurel Seabrook


Guest Designer Laurel Seabrook
Laurel started out with  Lunch Bag Kraft cardstock for her card base.  She layered on patterned paper and a Small Glassine Bag, and created a sweet tag for the inside.  Before adhering the bag she wrapped and tied it with Twill Tying Tape.  On the tag, she added a Round Hole Reinforcement Brown Kraft Label.

Laurel says, "I think these are my favorite item right now, I love them!  I have been under the weather lately so I have not been out much, but my thought was to put some little Ghirardelli  Chocolate squares inside the bag... I thought it would make a nice "just because" card for a friend".  Learn all about Laurel at her blog or visit our Design Team page.

Kraft Outlet DT Reveal for "Color Me Red" Challenge


Debbie Carriere
Debbie Carriere used a large red felt heart as her focal image for this week's Color Me Red challenge.  The red felt heart is layered on a larger heart cut from Brown Kraft cover weight cardstock.  She wrapped the heart with Tim Holtz Ruler Ribbon and Red Baker's Twine.  The sentiment was stamped on Lunch Bag Kraft Cardstock.  She die cut the flower from Vintage Dictionary Pages and added a center of Brown Kraft cardstock.  Underneath the layers, she tucked a die cut border cut from Light Kraft cover weight cardstock.  For a finishing touch, Debbie clipped three flags to the top of her card - one cut from Black Twill Tape, another from Natural Twill Tape, and a third in red felt.  For a detailed recipe be sure to visit Debbie's blog.


Debbie Marcinkiewicz
For today's 'Color me Red challenge, Debbie started her card off on a base of Lunch Bag Kraft cardstock.  Layered on top of that is a piece of pretty patterned paper in a red and white gingham pattern followed by a layer of blush cardstock.  Next, Debbie added some blingy glittered alphas to spell out L-O-V-E which she layered on various paper doilies, tickets and papers.  A pretty fabric bloom was adhered to the paper doilie and then a sentiment tag was created by using white craft ink stamped onto a piece of Lunch Bag Kraft cardstock and then inking the edges with vanilla paint to create a time-worn look.  Lastly, Debbie added a die cut butterfly made from Lunch Bag Kraft cardstock, some Red Baker's Twine, a Tiny Wooden Clothespin and a couple of Garnet Stick Pins.  Please visit Simple Treasures for additional photos!


Tracy MacDonald
Tracy created her card using a base of Brown Kraft Cover Weight cardstock.  Her image was colored with Copic markers.  A couple of the panels are matted with more of the brown Kraft.  For embellishments she added a Scalloped Grungy Prim Tag and added a Jenni Bowlin Chipboard Flag piece with a coordinating Flag Banner sticker on top.  Tracy created the flower from punched Vintage Dictionary pages.  Tucked in behind the flower are two Jenni Bowlin Garnet stickpins.
