The Kraft Journal 142 - Discover Something New

Hey y'all! 

(It's been a super duper busy weekend on the blog....This is my third post for today please click here for my Paper Sweeties Release Day 2 and for my Craftin' Desert Divas Guest Post Halloween Card click here.)  You will need to scroll a little further for The Ribbon Reel Eerie Elegance Card and a little more for the DeNami Designs Happy Halloween Blog Hop Thank you so much!)

It's Monday and that means a new challenge at The Kraft Journal. For today's Discover Something New challenge, I decided to use a product that is new to me at The Kraft Outlet: The Stretched Burlap 3x3. This product is on sale right now.  This is the perfect time to pick some up!

I am also switching gears from Halloween to Christmas! We like to mix things up a bit here on the ol' blog! :-)))

I used that as my starting point and added white acrylic paint.  I had a vintage Santa image in my stash and added it to a painted C-Flute Corrugated Kraft Paper which has been die-cut and layered upon a die-cut from Half Size Blackboard Stock Paper

I then added some Black Twill Tape around the outside of the burlap frame tied in a bow which was embellished with a glittered button and Black Baker's Twine. The tag was stamped with images from DeNami Design Classic Christmas Set and Christmas Greeting Stamp Set. For a finishing touch, I added touches of glitter to the Santa image, C-Flute Corrugated Kraft Paperand tag.

Please be sure to head over to the The Kraft Journal to check out the projects by the other talented ladies.  We hope to see your Discover Something New creations in the gallery this week for your chance to be featured on our "Feature me Friday" post as well as be entered to win a $15.00 gift voucher from The Kraft Outlet store.

I am also linking up at,  Sunday {Fun}day - Linky Party, Just B Creative - Just Because Linky, Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes.

Thanks for joining me today! Have a Marvelous Monday!

I don't know how many times I've been back by to look at this, Tammy. I bought a few of these burlap squares when I first started with TKJ and haven't known what to do with them. I'm SO in love with this, and I'm definitely going to "lift" this idea and finally use them. I love the paint on them and the black/white combo. I will make them for my Christmas craft fair in early December. They're SO super cute, and I'm finally inspired to use my burlap squares. You're such a blessing and inspiration to me in so many ways!
Hugs,
