Kraft Outlet DT Reveal for "Back to School" Challenge
Jan DelBone
Jan began with Kraft Blank Note Cards , and added design paper from the Kraft & Black Cardstock Pad, and some Graphic 45 paper.  She used two paper punches, added a ribbon and some ink.  Jan then mounted a September sticker from the Salvage Sticker Book, onto a scrap piece of Kraft card stock, and added a tag with a  Definitions Rubbing,   Stop by her blog for more info!

Debbie Marcinkiewicz
For today's 'Back To School' project, Debbie create a {sweet} miniature message board - complete with chalk board and cork board!  Debbie began her design with a piece of cardboard backing from a box onto which she adhered pieces of a Chalkstock Post Card and Corkstock Tile.  Next Deb covered four popsicle sticks with Lille Paper Tape and adhered them to the base to create a frame around the blackboard.  Deb created a pretty little banner using Banner Chipboard Pieces and Black Banner Stickers.  She stamped A-B-C's onto the fronts of the banner pieces and then strung them at the top of the blackboard using Red Baker's Twine and cute Tiny Colored Wooden Clothespins.  Debbie added a mini report card to the cork board created using a piece of Yellow Library Card onto which she stamped an 'A+', adhered a glittered gold star and tacked it onto the cork board with a Garnet Stick Pin.  Debbie added a pretty little ruffle at the bottom of the cork board using Ruler Twill Tape and finished her board off by adding a Metal Hinge Clip.  Deb added a piece of Natural Twill Tape at the top of her project so it could be hung, and lastly she used Buff Ivory Card Stock to stamp an adorable little girl ready for her first day of school holding a set of books tied on with Natural Hemp Cording.  Stamped images are Abigail, So Proud of You, Alphas-Upper and Alphas-Lower from Paper Sweeties.  Please visit Debbie's blog, Simple Treasures, for additional pictures of this project!

Lynn Darda

Lynn created this Library Pocket card for some of her teacher friends as they head back to school.  First, Lynn covered the card front with the script print from the Black & Kraft Cardstock Pad.  then Lynn added a strip of patterned paper to the library pocket, wrapped it with Kraft Baker's Twine and tied that off.  Lynn stamped the Library Card, the Library Pocket, and Brown Kraft Circle Label.
A metal Hinge Clip was added on top of the library card.  For stamping details and more back to school projects you can visit Lynn at her blog From My Bungalow.

We'd also like to take a moment to thank Lynn for being part of our Design Team this summer, she's such a inspiring designer and we enjoyed having her with us!!  Thank you Lynn!
