Kraft Outlet DT Reveal for "Use Any Sketch" Challenge
Debbie Marcinkiewicz

For today's 'Use Any Sketch' challenge, Debbie created a card using the current Paper Sweeties Sketch Inspiration #4!  Debbie began with a base of Buff Ivory Card Stock onto which she layered a piece of Lunch Bag Kraft Card Stock and then another piece of Buff Ivory Card Stock - securing all three layers with machine stitching.  Debbie stamped a sentiment onto a Small Kraft Shipping Tag, adhered a snipett of chenille trim and then tied a length of aqua tulle around the tag.  Debbie gathered several embellishments from The Kraft Outlet Shop to re-create the hanging elements from the sketch - to include a Round Metal Edge Grungy Prim Tag, X-small Grungy Prim Tag and Office Chipboard Button -- all of which were hung using Pink Baker's Twine.  Debbie used a Tiny Colored Wooden Clothespin to simulate leaves on the pink velvet flower she added to the Grungy Prim Tag.  Last, Debbie stamped the rest of the sentiment onto the Buff Ivory Card Stock base using the Once Upon a Time stamp set from Paper Sweeties!  Please visit Debbie's blog, Simple Treasures, to view additional pictures of today's card.

Jan Del Bone
Jan loves those Brown Kraft Blank Note Cards, and used them again this week as a base for her card.  She added some edge punched Buff Ivory Card Stock      and design paper.  A Mini Canvas Rectangle was frayed and adhered with some buttons strung with Natural Hemp Cord.  She free hand cut a heart made from E Flute Corrugated Kraft Paper, added a pink ribbon behind, wrapped with more Natural Hemp Cord and stuck in a pink heart shaped hat pin.  The Love rubbing sentiment was added from the Love Ink Rubbing Collection.  Stop by Jan's blog, chai tea 'n me, to see which sketch she used and say hello this week !

Becky Garrison

Designer Becky Garrison got her start making cards by joining in on sketch and other challenges, so this week's theme was right up her alley!  Using a base of Lunch Bag Kraft card stock, Becky made a 4 x 6" card base, then cut a bit of patterned paper to 3 3/4" x 5 3/4" and rounded the corners using a punch.  Next she cut a small slit about 1 1/2" in the top fold of the card, and wrapped some Earthy Hemp Cord around, sliding the end through the slit, and then tying it in the center on front.  She cut a circle from a printed image and a scalloped circle just a bit larger from coordinating card stock.  Then she adhered it to the card using foam dots.  The sentiment is from a sentiment sticker adhered to a strip of lunch bag kraft card stock that she had cut little 'tails' from on either side.  To find out which sketched she used, and more info on how she made the card, check out Becky's blog, Becky Garrison Paper Crafts.

Karen Letchworth
To be perfectly honest, Design Team Member Karen Letchworth was a little thrown off at the first thought of picking a sketch to follow.  She had no idea which sketch to choose, or even where to begin.  So, she literally "googled" the words card sketches, saw oodles of sketches, closed her eyes, pointed to one on the screen, and WENT WITH IT!   This is the sketch she found in her google search:
Karen used a card base made from Lunch Bag Kraft Cardstock which is just so super vesatile.  She used several patterned papers, felt flowers, and machine stitching.  Some of the little details of her card include Baker's Twine (The Kraft Outlet has a wide variety of baker's twine in a rainbow of colors), the sweet little Tim Holtz Memo Pins and a bow made of Natural Hemp.  Karen is hoping that you'll pop on over to The Kraft Outlet, pick up some great bargains on your products, and come play along in our "Follow Any Sketch" Challenge this week at The Kraft Journal Challenge Blog.  You can read more details about Karen's card on her blog, My Cup Runneth Over.

  1. Wonderful DT sketch creations. Sketches are not easy for me because I tend to over think them but have managed to come up with 5 creations.
