Marsha Drain 
Marsha used the exact words of the theme for her card by using a pre-colored digital chalkboard image.  Not only did this digi fit perfectly for the challenge theme, but the touches of Kraft in the design and words made it perfect for the card base of Light Kraft Cardstock.  There are 10 colors of Baker's Twine in the Kraft Outlet Store.  This one (listed as green) blends so well with the light turquoise world.  Her card is made as a top fold so she wrapped the twine around the front flap five times before tying off in a bow.  For more details for her card visit her blog - Gramma's Room.

Tammy Hobbs
For this week's Valentine's Challenge, Tammy made a vintage theme Valentine using some fabulous products at The Kraft Outlet.  She started with a base of Brown Kraft Cover Weight cardstock which she adhered her heart patterned paper.  She used both Brown Kraft Cover Weight cardstock and Buff Ivory cardstock to frame her darling focal image which comes from the Seasonal Salvage Sticker Pack. Just below, she stamped the Happy Valentine's Day sentiment in red ink. Next, she took a length of Oatmeal Cream Hand Stained Bias Tape and wrapped it around the left side of the card front and created a fluffy bow which she embellished with a button laced with Red Baker's Twine and a stamped Scalloped Grungy Prim Tag.  Lastly she added a red heart stick pin for a special Valentine touch. For additional pictures and product details, please visit Tammy's blog: Creating Somewhere Under The Sun.

For this week's Valentine's Day/Love Makes The World Go Round Challenge, DT Member Karen Letchworth made a sweet little card using a Buff Ivory Note Card as her base.  To that, she added a couple of different patterned papers, and then attached a Small Glassine Bag that she embellished with a journaling card and a piece of Red With White Polka Dot Washi Tape.  Karen also tucked a Grungy Prim Shipping Tag into her Small Glassine Bag, and she topped the Grungy Prim Shipping Tag with a length of the sweet Vintage Winter White Hand-Stained Bias Tape.  You may also notice that Karen added a small heart rub-on, and she ALWAYS uses her Bone Folder Tool to apply her rub-ons with great ease.
