Kraft Outlet DT Reveal for "Sew-so Simple" Challenge

Karen Letchworth
For this week's "Sew-So Special" Challenge, Karen Letchworth made a sweet little sewing card using her favorite Kraft Outlet papers starting with a Lunch Bag Kraft Note Card.  Next, she layered a piece of Black Board Paper to her card base, and then hand-stamped various vintage sewing images onto Lunch Bag Kraft Cardstock as well as on a Grungy Prim Tag (she stamped the thread spool onto a Grungy Prim Tag - great for that vintage look).   Once she had stamped all her images onto the Lunch Bag Kraft Cardstock, she decorated the pieces of cut Lunch Bag Kraft Cardstock with various items from The Kraft Outlet including the following:   A scrap of burlap from a Mini Burlap Tag, a Tim Holtz Memo Pin, two stickers with clear plastic tops from the Custom Fasteners set, a few lengths of Black Twill Tape that she used to go around the bottom of her card and to create a bow, and some lengths of Black Baker's Twine here and there.  You can read the complete supply list for this card on Karen's Blog - My Cup Runneth Over.  Karen hopes you have lots of fun with this week's "Sew-So Special" Challenge.

Jessica Esch

For this week's Sew~So Simple Challenge, Jessica did one of her favorite things~ add lots of machine stitching to her Back to School card. She started out her card with Light Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock and added several layers of pattern paper from My Minds Eye~Playdate paper pack. Then using her sewing machine she added a few different machine stitches to several of her layers. Since she was following a sketch for her card, the perfect added embellishment all came from The Kraft Outlet. Jessica added some Cream Twill Tape, which she also ran a line of machine stitching through. She also took one of the Chipboard Buttons, covered it with some matching pattern paper and then using her One Eighth Inch Hole Punch, re punched the holes to add some Brown and Blue Bakers Twine
For more details on her inspiration card, you can visit Jessica's blog~ Chick-n-Scrap.

Debbie Marcinkiewicz
For today's 'Sew So-Simple' challenge, Debbie created a little quilt out of paper -- and it was sew so-simple!  She followed a pattern found on the internet, cutting little squares from patterned paper and card stock and then cutting the squares into half square triangles to create the pattern.  Deb began with a base of Buff Ivory Card Stock onto which she added a couple layers of colored card stock.  Debbie popped the quilt pattern layer up with dimensionals and added two Tiny Wooden Clothespins to 'hang' the quilt on.  Next Debbie created a nosegay full of yumminess by adding a couple of Antique Stick Pins, a rosette made from Natural Twill Tape, leaves cut from Burlap and a sweet sentiment tag backed with a piece of Brown Kraft Card Stock.  Please visit Debbie's blog to view additional pictures of today's project!

Lynn Darda
When Lynn is faced with a sewing challenge she always go "faux".  Lynn created this little baby room wall-hanging with a variety of Kraft Outlet products.  The base is a Pre-Cut Chipboard piece that is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches.  These chipboard pieces are lightweight, yet sturdy enough for home decor or holiday decoration pieces.  Lynn used patterned papers and a variety of stamped images along with a Small Brown Kraft Shipping Tag.  The holder is created with Natural Twill Tying Tape and Brown Kraft Baker's Twine bows. The stitching effect was actually created with stamps.  For more information on "sewing" with stamps you can visit Lynn's blog From My Bungalow.
