Clean & Simple at TKJ

For this week's fun CAS (Clean and Simple) Challenge at The Kraft Journal Challenge Blog, I made a quick little encouragement card, and the Kraft Outlet made it easy to do!  I started with a Small Lunch Bag Kraft Notecard as my base, and to that I added some yellow card stock and a floral patterned paper.  Next, I ran a length of Tape Measure Washi Tape across the card and machine stitched the edges.  I added a soft sweet bow made of Oatmeal Cream and Aqua Mist Hand-Stained Bias Tape and some Yellow Baker's Twine.  The finishing touch was an encouraging Verve sentiment that I stamped onto a Tim Holtz Journaling Ticket.

The Kraft Outlet makes it SO easy.  I've been SO incredibly busy these past couple of weeks, and I know that it took me FAR less time (and money) to create this card I needed for myself than it would have taken me to drive all the way to the store and purchase one.  By simply stocking up on some of the great supplies from The Kraft Outlet, I can always be prepared and have the items on hand to make a very special card to suit any occasion.  I warmly invite you to grab some new Kraft Outlet items and play along in this week's Clean and Simple Challenge.

Have a blessed week!
