Good Morning and Happy Monday Everyone!
It is time for a new challenge over at
The Kraft Journal!
This week the challenge is:
Favorite Project of 2013
Wow what an awesome year it has been for me with TKJ DT. I have enjoyed being a part of and designing with the fun products that you can purchase at The Kraft Outlet. I hope I have inspired you with some of my projects.
With that being said, this is my final project as a DT member for The Kraft Journal :(
I have chosen to step down to pursue other crafty avenues and it would only be fair to my family, my blog and the DT members on this awesome team to give up some of my obligations to take on others. I value my work so much as well as the time I put into my blog that some things eventually have to be let go.
Now that all the mushy stuff is out of the way I can share one of my favorite projects of 2013, a birthday card I made for my son for the RED, WHITE and BLUE challenge.
You can see the original post HERE.
I started out with a Brown Kraft Cardstock base and added a mat of Peebles Let Freedom Ring pattern paper. Using my cameo and a star file from the Silhouette store, I cut 2 stars....one using the kraft and another one using some Bazzill blue. Since there is no white in my pattern paper, I added some white gel pen doodles (wanted to make sure I was following TKJ challenge) Again since this is for my son's 10th birthday I added the number's "1" and "0" using Tim Holtz Mini Numerals and popping them up using some foam adhesive.
I wanted my sentiment to be on some Cream Twill Tape , so I stamped The Alley Way Stamp Wish BIG birthday sentiment using Stazon Black Ink directly onto the ribbon. Didn't it turn out awesome????? To finish my card up I added one of my favorite embellishments from The Kraft Outlet~ the Custom Fasteners. Two of the stickers that come with this set were a perfect match to my card!
So there you have it....my inspiration for this week's challenge.
I hope you have enjoyed my card and will play along with us!
As always I have linked all the supplies I used from The Kraft Outlet throughout my description. If you have not checked out the store yet....make sure you do! There is so much available, the prices are so reasonable and shipping is super fast!!!
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a GREAT Monday!!
