Kraft Outlet Guest Designer Laurel Seabrook

My name is Laurel Seabrook, I am married with 2 girls ages 15 and 13.  I teach grade 1 full time and my hobbies are paper crafting (especially card making and scrapping), photography, blogging and painting.  Although the job and family life keeps me busy I try to make time for myself daily by going for a run and of course playing in my craft room. I have been fortunate to have been published in a number of different magazines and particpate on several DTs. My passion right now is anything using paper.  My girls are the inspiration for my scrapping and I am into card making as I love how quick, easy and satisfying they are... not to mention I am addicted to Challenges and participate in as many as I can.  I have also dabbled a bit in altered projects and mini albums and am slowly becoming addicted to them too!  Finally, I have fairly recently delved into digital items and use them for hybrid layouts, cards and altered products.

Created by Guest Designer Laurel Seabrook
We're very excited to have Laurel with us as our Guest Designer during the remainder of the challenges in February and she told us that she's excited too! To create her card for this week's challenge, Laurel started with a base of the Lunch Bag Kraft Cardstock and then layered on some pattern paper. She also cut down a Glassine bag to form a small pocket, covered it with coordinating pattern paper and wrapped it with a bit of Twill Tying Tape before stitching it to the card base. 


Next, she made a little tag out from more patterned paper, punched a hole in the top and placed a Round Hole Reinforcement Kraft Labels at the top of the tag, rounded the corners and added some letter stickers and twine. To learn more about Laurel and her other great projects visit her blog.


Kraft Outlet DT Reveal for "La-La-Luv You" Challenge


Debbie Carriere
Debbie Carriere created this card with layers of Lunch Bag Kraft Cardstock, Buff Ivory Cardstock, and patterned paper on a black cardstock base.  Her focal image is an Eiffel Tower die-cut accented with a sparkle flourish.  The sentiment flag was glued to a Pewter Stick Pin and stuck in a double twill bow adhered to the base of the Eiffel Tower all on top of a small doily die cut from Buff Ivory Cardstock.  For more details, visit Debbie at her blog.

Debbie Marcinkiewicz
For today's La-La Luv You card, Debbie began with a base of Buff Ivory Cardstock.  Layered on top of that is a piece of Brown Kraft Cardstock which Deb inked with cream paint to create a time-worn look.  On top of these two layers, Debbie adhered some pretty patterned papers and sewed around all the edges with a machine zig-zag stitch to create a patchwork effect.  Next Debbie created a sweet little banner using die cuts from Buff Ivory Cardstock and patterned paper.  Chipboard alphas were glittered and attached to the banner.  Lastly, Debbie die cut a tiny envelope from Brown Kraft Cardstock, inked the entire front, stamped a couple vintage images with Kraft ink and added pearls, lace, a button and Green Baker's Twine.

Jennifer Cuthbertson
Jennifer thought this little Valentine for her husband fit the "La-La-Luv You" theme of the week! She made the card of a base of brown kraft cardstock, and layered some tickets and some ribbon on the edges. The vintage Valentine image was mounted on a shipping tag and tied with some seam binding and some hemp cord. Head over to her blog for a detailed supply list!
