Kraft Outlet DT Reveal for "Use Any Sketch" Challenge

Karen Letchworth

It's always exciting to have the freedom to choose ANY Sketch, and that's exactly what DT Member, Karen Letchworth did this week. She chose a sketch from an old CARDS Magazine, and ran with it. This card all started with a wonderfully-versatile Large Lunchbag Kraft Notecard from the Kraft Outlet. And, of course, she didn't stop there! She added several other goodies from the Kraft Outlet including a cute chalkboard-style stamped sentiment that works perfectly when stamped on the Half-Size Blackboard Paper. There's also a layer of this Blackboard Paper on top of her Lunchbag Notecard along with a piece of patterned paper. The card is embellished with various trims including two lengths of Natural Hemp Cord. For further details about Karen's card, please stop by her blog, My Cup Runneth Over, to say hello. You're warmly invited to stop by the Kraft Outlet to pick up some fun new supplies, and then to stop over to the The Kraft Journal Challenge Blog to play along in this week's "Any Sketch" Challenge. We always enjoy seeing your fabulous projects!

Jessica Esch
For this week's Use Any Sketch challenge, Jessica chose to use the current sketch from The Deconstructed Sketch and made her first Christmas card of the season. She started her card using a base of Brown Kraft Cover weight Card Stock. Next she added her layers of designer paper and to differentiate between the two patterns, she added some White Twill Tape. Jessica then took her mat and ran it through her sewing machine, which not only adds a beautiful stitched border but also adds some extra stability to her twill tape. Jessica's next few layers all come from die cuts using several My Creative Time dies. She cut them out using matching designer papers, all from Echo Park~Winter Park paper pad as well as the Brown Kraft cover Card Stock. To finish her card, Jessica embellished using some glass glitter on the ornaments, White Hemp Cord to hang the ornaments and a Custom Fastener with more of the glass glitter.

Kristi Schurr
Kristi is excited about this week's challenge because sketches are one of her favorite card making tools. The sketch she used can be found here. She's also used several goodies from The Kraft Outlet to create her card. She started with a Blank Kraft Notecard as the base. She then layered her patterned papers and added some stitching in brown thread. Kristi cut a long strip of Kraft Recycled Tissue Paper,cut it into a fringe and added it to the bottom of the card. She then scrunched it with her fingers to give it a fluffy appearance. The focal point of Kristi's card is a home flashcard sticker from Hodge Podge Magpie Stickers. She also used some word stickers from Chit Chat Words to build the rest of the sentiment. A layered pumpkin sticker was added to the left of the focal sentiment and a Clock Face Icon was added for interest. Kristi added a bow made from Kraft Wraphia Ribbon and checked fabric ribbon to the top and adhered a metal acorn sticker embellishment to the center. A small wood leaf adds the final touch. For a complete supply list and more information, visit Kristi at Kristi's Paper Creations.

Tammy Hobbs
For today's "Use Any Sketch" Tammy used a sketch that can be found here. A card base of Brown Kraft Cover Weight was used adhering fall patterned papers to it. A die-cut doily was cut from Brown Kraft Cover Weight cardstock and added below the middle panel leaving a portion peeking out. A length of Metallic Twist Hemp Cord was wrapped around the center of the card front multiple times and embellished with a button. She then took a length of Natural Burlap Ribbon and added to the center. Lastly, Tammy took Black Banner Stickers and added them to the coordinating Chipboard Banner Pieces and then spelled out the word FALL. She then took the pieces and added to the card front for a finishing touch. Please stop by Tammy's blog, Creating Somewhere Under The Sun to view additional pictures and information regarding today's card.
