Today we'll introduce Debbie to you and then on our weekly Thursday Trigger posts we'll reveal her creations all month long!

Debbie Carrier of Scrappin' My Heart Out

Hello, my name is Debbie Carriere and I am very excited to be the September Guest Designer for The Kraft Journal !  I am a stay-at-home mom to three kids, paper crafting addict, and wife of 10 years to a very understanding husband.  We live north of Boston, Massachusetts.  I started scrapbooking about 6 years ago and was introduced to stamping just over 3 years ago.  I started blogging just over a year ago and really became passionate about card making soon after!  Most nights after my kids are in bed, you will find me creating in my "scrap room" until after I should have gone to bed!  Kraft cardstock is one of my go-to products, so I am so happy to be here this month!  My other loves are my family, the outdoors, reading, and coffee!  

Here's a sneak peek of Debbie's project that you'll see on Thursday, she'll also have a tutorial for you on her personal blog...Don't forgot to stop back in for The Kraft Journal Thursday Trigger post and full reveal!

Kraft Outlet Design Team Reveal for Something Grand

Jennifer Cuthbertson
Jennifer made this card inspired by her Grandma Pearl. Pearl was a non-nonsense kind of gal, raised during the depression and relocated by the war, who continually encouraged Jennifer to go for her dreams. This card features accessories from The Kraft Outlet, including Tim Holtz Journaling Tickets, Film Strip Ribbon, and Tea Dye Distress Ink. Head over to her blog for more details about the card and grandma!

Kim Duran
Kim took advantage of this challenge to create a "missing you" card for her own grandmother. She used a scallop punch to layer the Vintage Dictionary Pages, added some vintage images from Steampunk Victoriana Rubbings, and postage stamp markings from the Journey to France set. As the focal point, she used a Black Apothecary Sticker label to add the title for her creation. For more information about Kim's card, please visit her blog.

Tracy MacDonald
Tracy created her card using a base card of Brown Kraft Cover Weight cardstock.  Next she added a mat of Buff Ivory Cover Weight cardstock.  Digital images provide the background and focal picture on the card.  As an embellishment, Tracy wrapped the center of the card with 7 Gypsies Savannah seam binding, adding a bow of the same and two Jenni Bowlin Antique Stick pins.
