Sketch Time at TKJ

For this week's Sketch Challenge at The Kraft Journal Challenge Blog, I started with Small Lunch Bag Kraft Note Card, and covered it with three different coordinating October Afternoon patterned papers which are all machine stitched together.  I took a few lengths of Red Baker's Twine and ran them vertically on the card, tied them into a bow, and secured them with a Vintage Tim Holtz Memo Pin.  I also embellished my card with a General Store Postage Sticker (Postal Typewriters), a small piece of Air Mail Washi Tape, a snippet of Tim Holtz Ruler Ribbon, and the sentiment was placed on a Jenni Bowlin Journaling Circle. The sentiment is a Melissa Frances rub-on, so once again, I used the super useful Bone Folder Tool to apply the rub-on as well as to neatly fold my Note Card.  The Kraft Outlet has SO MANY wonderful products to make crafting and card-making fun and easy.  I encourage you to check it out today.  We have recently added several great new items including several gorgeous colors of the very popular hand-stained crinkled seam binding everyone is using.  You will just LOVE everything you find at The Kraft Outlet.

I just LOVE how all these sweet embellishments from the Kraft Outlet so perfectly compliment the papers I used.  Don't the washi tape, journaling spot, ruler ribbon and baker's twine look they came from the same line as the striped patterned paper?  Seriously, the embellishments and supplies at the Kraft Outlet are just SO much fun, and work so well with items you already own.  You will love their wide variety of items, their great low prices, and reasonable shipping costs.

Here are the challenges where I'm sharing my card:
