Kraft Outlet Design Team Reveal

Jen Cuthbertson
Whenever "borrowed" and "blue" are in the same sentence, Jennifer thinks of weddings! For this card, she used light kraft cardstock as a base for some lovely papers and a stamped banner. Head over to her blog for more details!

Tracy MacDonald
For her project Tracy used a Square Kraft Pillow Box to create a gift box that could be used for a bridesmaid gift.  She punched the edges of a piece of Buff Ivory Cover Weight cardstock and then layered some pretty K and Company paper on top of that.  She then tied some Twill Tying Tape in a bow around the box and added a Scalloped Grungy Prim Tag that she stamped "Thank You" on with one of the stamps from the Thank You Clear Rubber Stamp set.  She also made a place card from some Brown Kraft Cover Weight cardstock, more of the Buff Ivory, K and Company papers and twill tying tape, plus a stamped flower with another stamp from the set.

Frances Sylvia
For this week's theme "Something Borrowed, Something Blue" Frances took it literally. The "Something Blue" accents and pops of color on her layout. The "Something Borrowed"...the pearls on the inside of the butterflies are pearl buttons from an old sweater! Frances combined little elements of Kraft Outlet sprinkled ALL over her layout. She first grounded her title cluster by using a Small Kraft Shipping Tag for the word "hair" of her title. She also used some yummo Lunch Bag Kraft Cardstock for the sweet butterflies trailing up her layout. For the flowers, she tied Red Baker's Twine around the buttons and pushed a Antique Pearl Jenni Bowlin Stick Pin peeking from behind them. For close-ups of Frances' layout, visit her blog at Forever and a Year.
