Pop of Color at The Kraft Journal

Today is Monday, which means it's time for another great challenge at The Kraft Journal Challenge Blog and the theme of this week's challenge is "Pop of Color", and as you can POP of color is RED.  I started my project with three adorable Mini Kraft Merchandise Bags which I bound together using my Zutter binding machine to create a little keepsake/gift card holder album.  I also used some Jenni Bowlin Paper Edged Rub-Ons, black and red Baker's Twine, Jenni Bowlin Chipboard Office Buttons, Tim Holtz Adage Tickets, Tim Holtz Journaling Ticket (great for journaling in these little mini albums), some Natural Twill Tape Ribbon along with scrunched some seam binding tied on the binding, and some Red and White Polka Dot Washi Tape from the WONDERFUL selection of washi and decorative tapes available at The Kraft Outlet. 
The sentiment (Love You) is from Paper Sweeties, and you see that I've tucked a gift card in the pocket. 
Additional products used from The Kraft Outlet include the super fun Tim Holtz Ruler Ribbon, Jenni Bowlin Chipboard Banner Pieces topped with the coordinating Flag Banner Stickers and Numbered Flag Stickers, and I also used half of a Jenni Bowlin Journalling Card, and a Mini Canvas Tag, along with a few other embellishments.  You can see that I added quite a few goodies to this tiny little album, but the Kraft Outlet is just FULL of wonderful "krafty" goodness for all your crafting needs.
Please stop by this week and share your projects with us at The Kraft Journal Challenge Blog.  You can enter anything that uses kraft paper or kraft products, or any items purchased at The Kraft Outlet and that meets this week's theme (Pop of Color).  We would really love to have you play along.
I'm entering this little album in the following challenges this week:
Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog - Anything Goes

The Ribbon Carousel Challenge Blog - Challenge #80 - Showers and Flowers - I love flowers, and for this project I used Recollections flowers from Michaels as well as lots of gorgeous seam bind and baker's twine.

Allsorts Challenge Blog - Challenge #204 - Anything But a Card - it's fun to make projects other than cards.  I really enjoyed making this little keepsake album
