Kraft Outlet Guest Designer Dorcas of Dorcas Designs

My name is Dorcas and I am a married SAHM who homeschools our 13 year old daughter. We live in the countyside of North Carolina with two cats and 22 ducks. I love to craft whenever I get the chance and coloring on Kraft cardstock is just about my favorite thing to do when card making. I feel that my skill has improved so much in the last year or two simply due to all the tips and inspiration of fellow crafters in Blogland! To everyone, thank you!

Created by Guest Designer Dorcas of Dorcas Designs
Dorcas enjoyed creating today's project using lunch bag kraft cardstock to color her image on as well as for a base to stamp her sentiments and tags. A sweet little memo pin holds her sentiment tag perfectly. Red bakers twine "ties it all up". For more views and details stop by her blog.

Kraft Outlet DT Reveal for "Tie It Up" Challenge

Tracy MacDonald

Tracy created a fun child's birthday card using a base of Brown Kraft cardstock.  The fun image is complemented with buttons tied with Red, Blue, Baby Blue, and Green Baker's Twine.  She also created a banner using Jenni Bowlin Chipboard Banner pieces and Hang Tag String.

Jennifer Cuthbertson
For this week's "Tie it Up" challenge, Jennifer immediately thought of a gift tag and created this one from a large shipping tag with a decorative reinforcer. The tag features a background of vintage dictionary pages and film strip ribbon and is topped with an ephemera card, some alpha stickers, seam binding, and a vintage button. Head to her blog for more details!

Debbie Marcinkiewicz
For Debbie's 'Tie it Up' project today, she started off by embossing a piece of Lunch Bag Kraft Cardstock and inked the edges. She then cut a piece of Buff Ivory Cardstock for the base of her card.  Next she used a decorative edge die to create a fancy edge on a piece of Yellow Library Card, trimmed the bottom and adhered it to her embossed piece.  Debbie wrapped a bit of Blue Baker's Twine around the embossed piece and then adhered this to the cardstock base.  A sentiment was stamped on a Small Kraft Shipping Tag and then Deb tied a snipett of Red Baker's Twine around the top of the tag and adhered to the card base.  A pretty nosegay was created using some blue and cream seam binding from the Victoria Seam Binding pack.  The tag was inked,embellished and finished off with a Pewter Stick Pin.  The Truffle Box was decorated in a coordinating theme using more Blue Seam Binding, Red Baker's Twine and another Pewter Stick Pin. Visit Debbie's blog for more details.
