2016- Happy New Year {The Kraft Journal}

Hello Friends!

This is a bitter sweet post for me! I've been with The Kraft Journal a few years and The Kraft Journal has decided to close it's doors, but The Kraft Outlet remains open. They have been wonderful to me over the years and they are very FAMILY focused and have been a dream to design for. 2016 also will be a new beginning for me as I decide to head back to school and I will find less time to craft myself in the coming year as I concentrate on school.

So for my last care in 2015 and for The Kraft Journal,
I began this New Year's card with a card base of Brown Kraft cardstock. I pieced together patterned papers from a designer paper pack and joined them by wrapping around a length of Natural Twill Tape and tying in a bow further embellishing with a double bow made from Black Baker's Twine which I topped with an Icon Flatback
Using Buff Ivory Cardstock, I cut a rounded stitched rectangle using a die and distressed edges with inks. I cut out 2016 from Blackboard Stockpaper adding to the rectangle embellishing with three black gems followed by stamping Happy New Year in black ink. Lastly, I die-cut an arrow and popped it up facing the year.  All other stamps and dies are by My Creative Time

It truly has been wonderful designing for The Kraft Journal using fabulous products for The Kraft Outlet the last several years.

Happy New Year, Tammy! Your card is wonderful! I love the date card and love the neutral color scheme. The little clock face is absolutely perfect for a New Year's card. Loving all the little enamel dots, too. So sorry to hear that the Kraft Journal is closing their doors. I have very happy memories of working with them, too. You did an amazing job designing for them, my friend! And huge congrats on your decision to return to school! That is awesome!
