Week 217 - Kraft It

Good morning, Sarah here, thank you for all your fabulous Transport entries last week. The winners' post is below if you haven't seen it. This week is my turn to host the challenge and I have chosen the theme...

'Kraft It'
- use kraft cardstock somewhere on your project.

Kraft cardstock is one of my craft basics, I use it all the time. I know how I use it, I'd like to see how you use it...

 We have 2 fantastic sponsors this week...

DigiDarla is the brain child of Kim Eskola and her daughter Emilea and both enjoy creating and when the idea of creating digital stamps came up, it sounded like the most wonderful way to earn ever! The stamps you will find in the store and on this site come from our art as well as a few family friends that help to digitize so we can keep up.

Week 216 - Transport

Good Morning Everyone,

A big thank you to Tracy Mouse for last weeks wonderful challenge of Fur and Feathers, winners have been posted below.

This week I have chosen the theme of 'Transport' old or new,  and I am so  looking forward to seeing all your great entries.

Here are our wonderful DT creations to give  you some ideas.

We have two wonderful sponsors this week ------

Flonzcraft are a small family-owned design and craft company from New Zealand, a very small country where all people are great neighbours. We work hard for our work and store philosophy to reflect that in our company. We will never be ashamed of our products. Our main goal is making and selling rubber and clear stamps and we have and unique collection of stamps that you can not find anything else. Allsorts challenge entrants can obtain a 12% discount of orders this week by entering 'Allsorts' at checkout.

The Ribbon Girl is a are Mother and Daughter, Mary and Andrea, and have always crafted (card making, scrapbooking, cake decorating, sewing, embroidery, soft toy making etc) but  it became  more and  more difficult to buy very small quantities of good quality ribbon, lace and buttons at reasonable  prices  and we resented having to purchase a full roll of ribbon when we only needed one metre
