Kraft Outlet DT Reveal for "So Thankful" Challenge

Karen Letchworth - Front View
For the challenge theme "SO THANKFUL",  Karen, wanted to make a Thanksgiving mini album to celebrate her family.  She started with a Corrugated Kraft Square and covered that with harvest colored cardstock.  Karen decorated the front of her mini album with lots of Kraft Outlet goodies including a Canvas Tag, three stickers from the Jenni Bowlin Memo Book, some Jenni Bowlin Black Label Stickers, a Jenni Bowlin Rubbings (torn notebook), Jenni Bowlin Chipboard Buttons, orange and black Baker's Twine, a Tim Holtz Memo Pin, some Black & White Polka Dot Washi Tape, Music Washi Tape, and a Tiny Wooden Clothespin.
Karen Letchworth - Photo Pocket
To make the pages of her mini album, Karen used two Catalog Open End Lunchbag Kraft Envelopes to create photo pockets to save family memories.  These Catalog Envelopes are the perfect size for saving larger photos, and they cost just 50 cents each!!  They can be easily bound to create pocket pages in albums.  Karen bound her book using black 7 Gypies Gaffer Tape.  You can see additional photos/pages of this album on Karen's Blog, My Cup Runneth Over.  Almost all of what was used to create this album can be found at The Kraft Outlet.  Treat yourself to some new supplies, and come play along in our "So Thankful" Challenge this week!
Jessica Esch
For this week's "So Thankful" challenge, Jessica made an adorable Thanksgiving card using an image from Some Odd Girl as her inspiration. She started her card using a Brown Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock base and added layers of Graphic 45 designer paper. Once Jessica cut out her image and colored it using her copic markers, she added it to another mat of the Brown Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock. To embellish her card, she added some Cream Twill Tape and just knotted it as well as placed some Custom Fasteners to the corners with some stickles sparkle. For the sentiment, Jessica used a speech bubble die and a piece of the Canvas Triangle. Then using a sticker from the Chit Chat Seasonal Word pack she stuck it to the center of the speech bubble.
For more details on her inspiration card, you can visit Jessica's blog~ Chick-n-Scrap.

For this week's So Thankful challenge, Kristi made this quick and easy Thanksgiving card. She made a base from Lunch Bag Cover Weight Kraft Card Stock. After scoring and folding, she adhered a strip of wide chevron ribbon across the center using wide red line tape. She then stamped a wreath onto a Small Glassine Bag, filled it with sequins and glitter in fall colors and stitched around the edges for contrast. After stamping a sentiment on Lunch Bag Kraft Cover Stock, Kristi die cut it into a banner. Using Natural Burlap Ribbon,she fashioned a relaxed bow, frayed the ends,and adhered it to the card with hot glue as shown. After threading a pumpkin button with some hemp cording from the Dark  Jewel Hemp Cord pack,Kristi adhered it to the center of the bow.She added the sentiment banner to the bow using a Memo Pin. Kristi then finished off her card by adding another hemp cord threaded button  to the center of the wreath.For more details and a complete supply list, give Kristi a visit at Kristi's Paper Creations.
