Kraft Outlet DT Reveal for "Felt, Twine or Burlap" Challenge
Debbie Marcinkiewicz
For today's 'Felt, Twine or Burlap' challenge, Debbie began with a base of White cardstock onto which she layered a piece of Indigo cardstock.  Next, a piece of Brown Kraft Cardstock was embossed and inked.  Debbie added a piece of white paper doilie and then several lengths of Blue Baker's Twine was wound around the left side.  The embossed layer was adhered to the base of the card.  Debbie created a cardstock sandwich from Melon Mambo and White cardstock.  A frame was stamped in Lucky Limeade using the Best Wishes stamp set and then a sentiment was stamped using Indigo ink.  A Round Metal Edge Grungy Tag was added to the top of the card and then a butterfly punched from patterned paper was adhered to the ring.  Please visit Debbie's blog to view additional pictures of today's card!

Jan Del Bone

Jan created this special gift beginning with a CD sleeve.  These sleeves are so sturdy, and the packaging can be its own wrapping paper too !  Jan added a file folder tag to the top, using the word "family" from the Chit Chat Word Sticker collection.  She adhered some design paper, and some fake negatives, along with a Card Sleeve Envelope, placing a small Manila Shipping tag inside.  The small tag was inked, and an Apothecary Sticker  adhered, with some Film Strip ribbon as a pull.  The design paper was stamped with "photographs" and "treasured".  Finally a frame with a photo stamp from the Lost and Found Salvage Sticker book was attached, and the sleeve wrapped with twine and a button.  Stop in and say hello at Jan's blog, chai tea 'n me !

jessica esch
Since wedding season is upon us, Jessica incorporated the theme for this week's challenge~Felt, Twine or Burlap to make an adorable wedding card. She started out with a Brown Kraft Cardstock base and added her layers of pattern paper using Theresa Collins~Summer Stories designer paper. Then using a Mini Burlap Tag, Jessica cut the bottom to the shape she wanted and adhered the burlap to her mat using her hot glue gun. Since she was making a wedding card, she used an image from Bugaboo stamps and only added minimal color to the image, just enough to add some color. To further embellish her card, Jessica added some Metallic Twist Hemp Twine, a big glittery button and some small bling. Finally, Jessica stamped her wedding sentiment using My Creative Time's~Many Greetings stamp set.  For more details on her inspiration card and additional pictures, you can visit Jessica's blog~ Chick-n-Scrap.

Lynn Darda
For this challenge, Lynn is sharing a project that she created for a friend who is getting married soon. Lynn was inspired by several different birdcage card holders on Etsy.  For the banner Lynn used the following products from The Kraft Outlet:  Black Baker's Twine, Small Manila Shipping Tags, Tiny Black Wooden Clothespins, and Mini  Burlap Tags.  For more details on this project you can visit Lynn's blog From My Bungalow.
Karen Letchworth
For those of you who have gotten to know Design Team Member, Karen Letchworth, you probably know by now that she doesn't do real well with the word "OR".  So, for this week's "Felt, Twine OR Burlap", she figured she would forget all about the word "OR" and just use them ALL!   She started with one of the darling little Cotton Drawstring Bags which sell for just $0.35 cents each at The Kraft Outlet, and she added a piece of Burlap, and then added a felt flower and leaf using a die-cut, and then added a wooden button tied with some Natural Hemp/twine.  She also added a Tim Holtz Adage Ticket to which she clipped on a Tiny Wooden Clothes Pin that's covered with a bit of Red & White Polka Dot Washi Tape.  Karen tucked several Starbucks coffee packets into the Cotton Drawstring Bag for gift-giving.  Many of the sweet little products at The Kraft Outlet are well under a dollar, and work GREAT for making gift packaging, such as this project.  Check out all the darling items in our store, and then come by and join us this week for our "Felt, Twin, OR Burlap" Challenge; or.....use all three like Karen has done.  You can read more about her project, or just stop by to say hello at her blog, My Cup Runneth Over.
