Kraft Outlet DT Reveal for "Anyting Goes" Challenge

Jessica Esch
This is Jessica's first post as a new Design Team member for The Kraft Journal. Following this week's Anything Goes challenge and stepping a bit outside her comfort zone with this vintage inspired  altered project she used the Small Natural Crinkle Journal. Using some Vintage Photo Distress Ink she distressed the edges of her designer papers. Then adding some machine stitching to each of the sections and adhering them to the journal. With an inspirational sentiment stamped on the outside and some simple embellishments from her stash this little journal would be perfect for keeping close by to add favorite quotes,  pictures, or things that want to be remembered. For more details and additional pictures, you can visit Jessica's blog Chick-n-Scrap.
Tammy Hobbs
For today's "Anything Goes" Challenge, Tammy adores making her own packaging and thought this would be the perfect challenge to do so. She used a Kraft Pillow Box to create a special Mother's Day gift package. She stamped a few dainty roses on the outside of the box, and added a doily along with a beautiful shear bloom to the center. She stamped a Happy Mother's Day sentiment on an xs - grungy tag and applied with adhesive so it would stay in place.

Karen Letchworth
Anything Goes is always a favorite challenge theme for Karen Letchworth who chose to create a little Birthday Card this week.  She started with a Lunch Bag Kraft Note Card and added some patterned papers.  Next, she took a Mini Kraft Pocket and added some paper strips and pieces of washi tape.  Be sure to check out all the awesome new washi tapes available at Kraft Outlet.  Karen cut up a Mini Burlap Triangle to form sort of an ice cream cone topped with sequin sprinkles.  Some baker's twine, rub-ons and a Tim Holtz Memo Pin are the finishing touches.  You can read more details about the card on Karen's Blog,  My Cup Runneth Over.
