Kraft Outlet Guest Designer for December

My name is Linda Abadie. I am a registered nurse, practicing as the Director of Clinical Education at GoldenLiving- Sleepy Hollow Manor Nursing and Rehab facility in Annandale, Virginia, USA. My husband and I have been married for eight years and we have two children, Nicholas (6) and Christopher (3). I started scrapbooking in 2007 when my husband's ARMY career took us to the far reaches of the globe. Most of my layouts are inspired by daily activity; either at home with my family or at work, Nursing. I enjoy this hobby as it allows me to express and capture special heartfelt moments in my life. Many of my friends consider my style as “eclectic”, full of bright colors, and happy. I am able to create a full layout combining mixed media and hybrid scrapbook technique.
Linda Abadie: Try Something New Challenge
We'd like to sincerely thank Linda for being our guest here at The Kraft Journal this past month and for delighting and inspiring us with her beautiful creations! For her last project she shared with us that altering note books is one of Linda's favorite ways of expressing her creativity. For this week's challenge, "Try Something New", she experimented with tulle fabric as a base for adding modeling paste mixed with acrylic paint to create a dimensional background. She used ruler twill ribbon as a border and added lille tag as part of the title of her altered notebook. To complement the note book, she added grungy prim tag on the binding with a Family Tree Journaling Card.

Kraft Outlet DT Reveal for "Try Something New" Challenge

Tracy MacDonald
Tracy created a tag starting with a base of Buff Ivory cardstock.  Her next layer is Light Kraft cardstock on which she attached some pieces of Vintage Dictionary page, inked, stamped, painted and Glimmer Misted.  The flower was made using flowers die cut from a Tim Holtz Kraft Glassine pocket.  Another piece of the Kraft Glassine was embossed, inked painted, misted, and layered behind the image.  The sentiments were added with a Jenni Bowlin chipboard flag piece and a White Round Metal Edge tag and the tag was wrapped with some red 7 Gypsies Gypsy Market Seam binding.

Jennifer Cuthbertson
Jennifer created this "something new" from something old - vintage dictionary pages! She made this matching paper bow tie and party hat ensemble to wear to ring in the new year adding seam binding and stick pin accents. Head over to her blog for more!
