Kraft Outlet DT Reveal for "Pop of Color" Challenge

Tammy Hobbs
For today's "Pop of Color"challenge, Tammy created a decorated bag for the upcoming Teacher Appreciate Week using Red as her Pop of Color.  She started with the Medium Kraft Paper Sack from The Kraft Outlet. Using an apple stamp and Mini Swirl Flourish stamp from DeNami Designs, she randomly stamped the bag using Real Red ink from Stampin' UP!. To soften things a bit, Tammy added a white doily to the center of the decorated Medium Kraft Paper Sack. She further decorated by adding some red patterned papers from her scrap stash, a cute little paper-pieced apple inside a stamped scallop circle also from DeNami Designs. Her final finishing touch included taking a length of Wraphia ribbon and wrapping it around the center tying in a bow and embellishing with some Red Baker's Twine and a button to complete the look.  Please visit Tammy's blog, Creating Somewhere Under The Sun for additional pictures and information.

Jessica Esch
Jessica loves Monday's when the new Kraft Journal challenge begins. Based on the theme for this week, Pop of Color, Jessica made a CAS card using several products from The Kraft Outlet. Her music inspired card starts with a Brown Kraft Cardstock , which she embossed the bottom half using a Tim Holtz music embossing folder. Before adding some Black Twill Tape to cover the start of the embossed part she ran her mat layer through the sewing machine to give a decorative border. Once the Black Twill Tape bow was tied, Jessica added a triple bow using some Natural Hemp Cord. To cover the knot of the hemp cord and keeping with the music theme, Jessica used the Custom Fasteners  to make her own music note brad. Finally she die cut out the heart using some red felt and the letter "u" using some Chipboard and attached them both using a Memo Pin poked through the ribbon. For more details and additional pictures, you can visit Jessica's blog~ Chick-n-Scrap.

Karen Letchworth
For this week's Pop of Color Challenge, Karen Letchworth decided to make a tiny album using the adorable Mini Kraft Merchandise Bags which she bound together with a binding machine to create a little keepsake and gift card holder album.  Karen used some Jenni Bowlin Paper Edged Rub-Ons, some black and red Baker's Twine, Jenni Bowlin Chipboard Office Buttons, Tim Holtz Adage Tickets, Tim Holtz Journaling Ticket (great for journaling in these little mini albums), some Natural Twill Tape Ribbon along with some seam binding tied on the binding, and some Red and White Polka Dot Washi Tape from our WONDERFUL selection of washi and decorative tapes available at The Kraft Outlet.

These sweet little bags are just twenty cents each, and make such a cute little gift card holder or place to tuck a note, trinket, or memory inside.  To see the additional pages of Karen's little album and read all the details, you can visit her personal blog, My Cup Runneth Over


  1. Awesome work ladies! I love how we were all inspired by Red as our Pop of color! Great minds think alike! :-)

  2. Oh how funny I didn't even think that I used red as my pop of color also until I read Tammy's comment-- I must have definately been inspired by all of your beautiful work! Thanks for another fun challenge.
