Back To School Challenge



This week's challenge at The Kraft Journal is "Back to School".  Being a teacher I have lots of friends who are very excited about this time of year.  Here is a card for one of my teacher friends.  First, I covered the card front with the script print from the Black & Kraft Cardstock Pad.  Then I added a strip of patterned paper to the library pocket, wrapped it with Kraft Baker's Twine and tied that off.  I stamped the Library Card, the Library Pocket, and Brown Kraft Circle Label.  A metal Hinge Clip was added on top of the library card.  For more back to school projects you can visit The Kraft Journal blog.   I invite you to consider creating a project and joining in the challenge there!




Now, let me tell you about the Close To My Heart stamps that I used on this challenge.
The stamps are all from the Scholastic Workshop On The Go Scrapbooking Kit.  You can find that on my website (see Shop With Me button on sidebar).  What a happy accident to find that the round stamp fit the Kraft Outlet Brown Round Labels perfectly.  Now I can make Kraft-y book labels for all my books and catalogs.  Love it!
This is my last post as Guest Designer for The Kraft Journal.  I've had so much fun designing with Kraft Outlet products along with my Close To My Heart stamps.  Even though I won't be on the design team I'll be playing along with the challenges and checking for inspiration there.  Hope you check it out as well at The Kraft Journal.
