Kraft Outlet DT Reveal for "Favorite Project of 2013" Challenge

Debbie Marcinkiewicz
For today's 'share your favorite 2013 project' challenge, Debbie is spotlighting her project from The Kraft Journal #116 - 'Tag You're It'!  Debbie began with a base of Lunch Bag Kraft Card Stock and then layered a piece of Buff Ivory Card Stock.  Next, a piece of Kraft & Black Card Stock was added and two lengths of Music Note Washi Tape was adhered along the sides.  A machine zig-zag stitch was sewn around all edges.  A piece of Vintage Keys Twill Ribbon was adhered around the middle of the card and then a Small Glassine Bag was stitched onto the base.  A pretty paper bloom was attached along with  leaves cut from a Mini Burlap Rectangle and a Vintage Keys Twill Ribbon bow.

Last, sentiments were stamped onto a Small Kraft Shipping Tag using the Banner Wishes and You Are Amazing stamp sets from Paper Sweeties and then a snipett of Black Burlap Ribbon was attached to the top of the tag.  Please visit Debbie's blog to view additional pictures of today's project!

Jessica Esch
For this week's "Favorite Project of 2013" challenge, Jessica chose the birthday card she shared for the challenge "Red, White and Blue" in May. It was designed for her son's birthday and spotlighted quite a few products from The Kraft Outlet. She started out with a Brown Kraft Cardstock base and added a mat of red, white (cream) and blue pattern paper from Peebles. She die cut 2 stars, one using the matching Brown Kraft Cardstock and the other using blue Bazzill cardstock that matches her pattern paper. Since the colors from the pattern paper are cream, Jessica added some white gel pen doodles to follow along with the challenge. Since this was a big double digit birthday card,  she added the numbers "1" and "0" using Tim Holtz Mini Numerals and popping them up using some foam adhesive. For the sentiment and additional embellishments, Jessica stamped "happy birthday" on some Cream Twill Tape using Stazon Black ink and used 2 Custom Fasteners  with matching star stickers.
You can visit Jessica's blog~ Chick-n-Scrap for more details on her inspiration. 

Tammy Hobbs
For this weeks challenge "Favorite Project of 2013" Tammy choose to share the Vintage Dictionary Egg Topiary Tree she made for a tutorial. It can be found here if you missed it.  It is a great way to recycle those plastic eggs you have leftover from Easter. Covering them with Vintage Dictionary Pages adds to the charm. It makes a beautiful decoration for your home or a gift for someone you adore. Be sure to visit Tammy's blog: Creating Somewhere Under The Sun for more details and pictures of her favorite project from 2013 as a few other projects she enjoyed making over the year. 

Karen Letchworth
For this week's "My Favorite Challenge" of 2013, Design Team Member Karen Letchworth chose to use this fun card from this past Summer's "Cute Critters Challenge".  She used various patterned papers and stickers, an inexpensive white doily, and some die-cuts to create her "critters".  She machine stitched the papers together, and then added the following supplies from The Kraft Outlet:  A Tim Holtz Memo Pin, Family Tree Journaling Card (yellow), and an Ephemera Label on top of that.  The base of her card is one of the fabulous Kraft Blank Note Cards.  Additional supplies include some beautiful lace, a flower, felt letters, and a crocheted cream doily under the flower.  For a complete supply list and further details, please stop by Karen's blog, My Cup Runneth Over.  Wishing you all a very blessed and Happy New Year!
