Kraft Outlet DT Reveal for "Nothing But Kraft" Challenge

Jan Del Bone
Jan's nontraditional Valentine began life as a Brown Kraft Note Card.  She adhered more edge punched heart kraft design paper, and a Kraft Cardstock die cut heart.  Atop the heart is a bow made from Typewriter Satin Ribbon, with a button tied with Natural Hemp Cord.  The sentiment includes a die cut background cut from more Kraft Cardstock, covered with a Brown Kraft Oval Label, and a sentiment from the Love Ink Rubbing Sheet.  The card was finished with white ink around the edges.  Stop by Jan's blog, chai tea 'n me, and say hello !

Becky Garrison

Creative Team member Becky Garrison has used kraft to it's best advantage in her project for this week's 'tricky' challenge by taking the simple, streamlined approach for this very krafty card.  The base is Light Kraft Cover Weight Card Stock cut to 8 1/2 x 5 1/2" and folded in half to make a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2" card.  Then she cut a piece of the C-Flute Corrugated Kraft Paper to 3 3/4" x 5", inked the edges and adhered it to the card.  Next she used the darkest brown color of hemp cord from the Earthy Hemp Cord and ran it through one of the 'flutes' in the paper, and tied a Small Kraft Shipping Tag and adhered it to the corrugated kraft paper.  A bow of Natural Burlap Ribbon tied with more dark brown hemp card, and a birthday sticker make this card complete!  To find more information about this and other projects by Becky, please visit her blog, Becky Garrison Paper Crafts.

Karen Letchworth
For this week's "Nothing But Kraft" Challenge, Design Team Member Karen Letchworth wanted to bring in color without using any paper other than Kraft.  So, she started with a Lunch Bag Kraft Note Card and touched the edges with acrylic paint.  Then, she cut a smaller piece of matching Lunch Bag Kraft Cardstock and wrapped it up with lots and lots of the gorgeous Baker's Twine from The Kraft Outlet.  Once she finished attaching that, Karen simply added a sentiment using a Paper Sweeties sentiment stamp (thank you) that she stamped on a Grungy Prim Tag.  Then she added a little bow made from more of the Baker's Twine and attached a  Tiny Wooden Clothespin.  Using Kraft paper can be fun, and you will find everything you need for this week's challenge at The Kraft Outlet.  Feel free to stop by Karen's blog, My Cup Runneth Over to see more.

Debbie Marcinkiewicz

For today's 'Nothing but Kraft' challenge, Debbie began with a base of Brown Kraft Card Stock onto which she layered a piece of Lunch Bag Kraft Card Stock that was embossed, inked and a machine zig-zag stitch was used to adhere the embossed piece to the base.  Next, Deb covered a Card Sleeve Envelope with some Music Note Washi Tape and adhered it to the base.  A pretty bloom was made using dies with a couple of scrap pieces of Lunch Bag Kraft Card Stock -- the layers were adhered together and a resin floral piece was added to the center of the bloom.  A heart shape was die cut from Cork and Debbie did some additional machine sewing around the edges before adhering the heart to the card.  A bit of Kraft tulle, a couple of Antique Stick Pins and a pretty Kraft ticket were added to complete the pretty Kraft nosegay.

Debbie created a sweet little tag that pulls out of the Washi Tape covered Card Sleeve Envelope by inking the edges and stamping a sentiment using the So Sweet of You stamp set.  A snipett of Burlap was added for additional texture and then Debbie glued a Chipboard Button on top of the Burlap.  Last, Deb stamped a heart shape using the Snow Friends stamp set directly onto a scrap piece of Cork, cut it out and adhered it on top of the Chipboard Button.  A length of Natural Twill Tape was added to the top of the tag to complete Deb's design.  Please visit Debbie's blog, Simple Treasures, to view additional pictures of today's project!
