Before we show you our sketch for this challenge, we would like you to meet Anitra Tovar, our newest team member !!

Hello!  My name is Anitra and I'm a stay at home mom to two small children.  I live in Central Texas with my husband Matt of 15 years!  Although I started out quilting,  I absolutely love paper crafting.  I often use fabric and trims in my creations that tend to be more on the vintage style:  however I do enjoy a bright whimsical creation from time to time!  I look forward to being a part of The Kraft Journal  design team and hope you will join me on this amazing journey!  Come visit me at my blog  Stamping While They Sleep.

Welcome, Anitra !!

Kraft Outlet DT Reveal for "Sketch" Challenge

Kristi's card for this week's sketch challenge features a black and kraft color scheme. Her card base is made with Lunch Bag Kraft Cover Weight Card Stock. She then layered a piece of polka dot paper over the base. The second layer was made with a script patterned paper. Kristi then used Black Burlap Ribbon layered on a kraft colored ribbon to fashion a fishtail banner and adhered it to the center of the card.The focal piece was made by die cutting 2 layered scalloped rectangles from Black Board Stock Paper and Lunch Bag Kraft Cover Weight Card Stock. Kristi then hot glued a pre-made burlap flower to the layered die cuts. She also added a Tiny Wooden Clothespin to the largest label. A sentiment was fashioned from Chit Chat Word Stickers and adhered to another fishtail banner made from Black Board Stock Paper and added to the top right corner with foam tape. A wooden star and black enamel dot finish off Kristi's card. For more information and a complete supply list, visit Kristi at Kristi's Paper Creations.

Debbie Marcinkiewicz

For today's sketch challenge, Debbie began with a base of Lunch Bag Kraft Cardstock onto which she layered an embossing white layer.  Next Debbie added another layer of embossed Lunch Bag Kraft Cardstock.  A snipett of Black Twill Tape was added on top of the embossed cardstock layers.  Debbie created a patterned layer using Black Polka Dot Washi, Damask Washi and Music Note Washi Tape along with a length of Bright White Hemp Cording.  Last Debbie stamped a sentiment onto White Pearlized Decorative Label using the So Sweet of You stamp set from Paper Sweeties.  Please visit Debbie's blog to view additional photos of today's project!
Tammy Hobbs
For this weeks "Sketch Challenge", Tammy went with a Love theme. She followed the sketch pretty closely, but used a card she has previously made (found here) as further inspiration. She started with a card base of Blackboard Stock Paper followed by adding her layers of pattern papers with distressed edges. Following the sketch, she added a banner horizontally on the card front. Next she added a decorative envelope adding patterned paper to the bottom. She tucked a snippet of a doily at the top of the envelope adding a strip of Black and White Washi Tape across.  She used Tiny Wooden Clothespins to clip the darling hearts to her envelope. After adding her sentiment, she wrapped around the card front a length of Metallic Hemp Cord for a finishing touch. For additional pictures and a complete supply list, please visit Tammy at Creating Somewhere Under The Sun.
Anitra Tovar
Anitra is ready to jump right into this week's sketch challenge!  For her card she started with Buff Ivory Card Stock and matted patterned paper with black card stock.  Using a Vintage Black Journaling card, she fussy cut three jars from a patterned paper.  For the tab, she used the "READ THIS" from the Black Apothecary sticker sheet and paired it with the tab from the Hodge Podge Magpie Stickers .  A magnet keeps the folded down yellow piece closed, and when it's pulled down reveals a Pickled Tomatoe Recipe.  For more details of supplies used and more photos please stop by Anitra's blog Stamping While They Sleep.

Karen Letchworth
Karen had fun with this week's Sketch Challenge.  She needed to make a birthday card for a sweet little girl, so she grabbed some supplies from the Kraft Outlet and got right to work following this adorable sketch.  She started with a Large Buff Ivory Notecard and machine stitched several different scraps of patterned papers to a Buff Ivory Cardstock base.  Once the foundation was laid, she added two strips (stars and ruler) of Black Apothecary Stickers, a Number Flag Banner Sticker, and tied a bow made from Pastel Hemp Cord with a General Store Flatback Pin (25 cents) in the center of the bow.  The sentiment is a rub-on that's rubbed onto a small scrap of Buff Ivory Cardstock - Karen loves using the Bone Folder tool for applying rub-ons, as well as for making crisp, clean folds in her cards.  The Kraft Outlet has LOTS of great supplies for card-making; including several brand new items, and Karen looks forward to seeing what you will create this week as you play along in our Sketch Challenge.  For more photos of this card and a complete supply list, please stop by Karen's blog, My Cup Runneth Over to say hello.
