Big Announcement!


Hello Everyone,

2016 is just around the corner with new things in store for everyone, including The Kraft Journal. As you all know paper crafting has changed over the years and it is time for a change here too. Today we are announcing the closure of the The Kraft Journal Challenge Blog, effective today.


On behalf of Karen, Tammy, Marsha and myself, we would like to thank all of you who have participated in the last 254 challenges! We have been very lucky over the last 5 years to have had a fabulous group of designers, featured artists and spotlight contributors share their talent with us each week.  We couldn't have done it without you!


The Kraft Journal is sponsored by KraftOutlet.com and the store remains open for business as usual. Any unclaimed prizes won at The Kraft Journal will be honored at Kraft Outlet until their expiration date, so no worries there. Kraft Outlet remains a leading online source for Brown Kraft Labels, Kraft Paper and Cardstock, Hang Tags and Unique Crafting Supplies! 

Thank you for your Creativity, Friendship and Support! 
Here is our final card for inspiration and I think it says it all, thanks Tammy.



But before we go there are a few things we need to take care of, we have some winners from Challenge #254 Take Your Pick!

The Kraft Outlet team of Designers personally select the Top Three Awards for each week's challenge. Their selections are based on style and technique(s) used on the project,
as well as compliance with the challenge rules.
