So let’s see what the design team have made for us.

AnjieI've used the golfer image, papers, embellies and cutting files that are all from the Work and Play 11 download collection. This can also be purchased as a CD HERE. You can find the image HERE on it's own. I have coloured the image with a mix of Graph'It Markers and Prismacolour pencils.

Scatty Jan Everyone loves a bit of Kraft me included so I loved this challenge - I used the lovely Eden collection  . Eden Blossoms also available as a digi here , coloured up with polychromos.. The lovely Green Paper is from Cherryblossom Lane collection. Flowers were punched using same paper. Added some ribbon , gems, mini flowers and a length of pearls to finish.

Tanya ....The Rose Budd collection is full of pretty digis and papers and embellishments.  I’ve used a sheet from the collection called ‘Flower Sheet’ which has nine pretty little flower squares on it and I’ve embossed them with ultra thick embossing powder and matted and layered onto Kraft Card and a sheet of the paper from the collection.  Finished it off with the wonderful envelope sentiments from the collection which I’ve dyed using some Tim Holtz Distress Stain. 
Lynda: I love this weeks challenge, one of my go to, must have craft stash items is Kraft Card. I chose to use the lovely Work&Play 10 Country life collection, it's available as a digital download or on a  CD.  The digi image I used is called Breaktime and you can buy him on his own or part of the entire collection. Have fun xx

Caz  For my project i have used the cute digi  Winston Bear, Get in touch.  I have used some kraft paper, wich is available on the fabby Winston Delux papercraft cd collection. You can also find digi and all embelishments, and  sentiment..In this collection...You can also get this collection as a Download.

Monica - I think that Kraft is perfect for a "grunge creepy" look, so I made a shadow box card for my daughter "Sofia" that love that kind of stuff.  Odella with bag was just the perfect adorable zombie for my project. She looks grunge because she has been buried for a while :o)  Background paper and the lovely sentiment are from Work & Play 11.

Kate - Like my teamies I love Kraft card and don't use it nearly enough. My make this week hasn't got any colouring on it as I needed to make a quick & easy birthday card. I decided that the 'Twiggy & Toots' collection was an ideal match for the Kraft challenge, so all the elements I used are from that collection. Full details are on my blog x

Emma - For my Use some Kraft Card card i have made a bird house card. I had such fun making this card & it was super easy to do as the template, papers & embellishments are on the Twiggy & Toots full collection that you can either download Here or on CD Here.
I have used the pre coloured Hats off Twiggy who can be found Here & fussily cut out an few of the fab embellishments to decorate this card & finished off with a bit of sparkle.

Julie - I made a Gift box card for our challenge using Kraft card for my base card and box inside and used the fabulous Winston Full Download collection from Polkadoodles for the wonderful image which is called Splish Splash and the beautiful patterned kraft papers, which are also available on the Winston CD. The outline image is available singly in the Polkadoodles store HERE
The tag in the centre section has white on the reverse to add my message

Jane – Hi everyone!  I love Kraft card and I especially love the effect of colouring onto it with pencils and that is what I have done here.  I have taken a pre-coloured paint pot image from one of Nikky’s newest collections WORK AND PLAY 11 and enlarged it in Serif.  I then matted the digi stamp FEMALE PAINTER/DECORATOR on top of it.  The sentiment and pre-coloured paintbrush can also be found in the WORK AND PLAY 11 bundle.  Have a lovely crafty day! xxx

Yvonne - Hello! For my card this week I opted to use one of the images from the NEW Serenity Collection, this is 'Serenity Resting' and she is so beautiful I adore her. You can get this image as a digi image here , or as part of the download collection or as a CD-Rom. I really would urge you to get the complete collection - it's a stunning collection. The papers are from Work & Play 11, which is available as a digi download or as a CD-Rom. The Toadstools are a cutting file available in the shop - here.  The birdhouse is from Work & Play 10 - again available as a download collection or as a CD-Rom
Wendy - I've used the pre-colured Octavia Dragonfly and border from the Octavia Moonfly collection and printed directly onto Kraft card for a muted look. You can get her also as a digi here. The flowers are also from the same collection, but can also be bought in the Blooming Heaven mini flower kit. I've printed these on shrink plastic to miniaturise them.

Great makes from everyone I’m sure you will agree.
