Autumn Colors at The Kraft Journal

Karen Letchworth for The Kraft Journal
This week at The Kraft Journal Challenge Blog, we have another super fun challenge for everyone, and it's an Autumn Color Challenge.  I love these rich colors that represent the cool weather, the falling leaves, and the changing seasons.  So I decided to make two projects to share for this week's challenge, and I used lots of wonderful products from The Kraft Outlet to create them.  The first project I made is a paper mache' pumpkin shaped box that I covered with a sheet of the adorable vintage Dictionary Pages.  Next, I added a Tim Holtz Journaling Ticket, some felt leaves, sentiment stickers, and a bow made from Kraft Wraphia Ribbon.  The other little item is another wonderful gift-giving product from the Kraft Outlet; which is a Small Kraft Pillow Box.   I used another Tim Holtz Journaling Ticket which fit just perfectly for a rub-on sentiment and some embellishments including another Kraft Wraphia Ribbon bow, some Natural Hemp Cord, and some Green Baker's Twine.  There are SO many great products at the Kraft Outlet for all your Autumn crafting projects, and we'd really love to have you pick up some new goodies and come join our amazing "Color Challenge" this week.

I'm also going to share these little projects in the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes Using Simon Says Stamp Product - I used some Jolee's Fall Stickers, and also Basic Grey patterned papers and buttons; all available in their sweet store!

Basic Grey Challenge Blog - Autumn Colors Photo Inspiration - I LOVED this beautiful photo inspiration.  I used Basic Grey patterned paper and button.
Have a blessed week!
