June Club Project

This month we are using the Jubilee paper pack (X7181B) and the Jubilee WOTG stamp set as well as the Stamp of the month Kaboom! (S1406).  Of the first two pages below, I combined the WOTG and the SOTM sets. 

 On the second set of pages below I used just the WOTG stamp set. I did these pages before creating the pages above.  I dug deep into photos that we took in the early 90's when we took a June/July vacation to Cleveland, Oh to visit family.  We also went to Niagara Falls, and Canton.  I figured this would be a good lead in set to the rest of the story!!!

For club, you will need:

Piercing tool

See you Tuesday night!

WOW! Time really flies by doesn't it?

It's almost May, and I haven't been in the blog since March.  I didn't even get a change to post April's project.  I'm posting the May Project now!!! :-)

This month we are going to try a couple of new things. First, we are going to be working with a 10X10 canvas. Second, we are going to use the Spray Pen (Z1380) and spray a little color onto our canvas.  It's a little difficult to see in this picture, but I sprayed the background with Crystal Blue (Z2217) and Garden Green (Retired). We are using the wood grain paper from the Timberline paper pack (X7182B), Buttercup card stock (1271), ProPlayer assortment pieces (Z1879), and corrugated cardboard stars (retired), and Baker's Twine (Z1921) to make this simple wall decoration for two of your favorite family type photos.

You will need to bring:
Puff up tape
Glue Dots

Club date is Friday 5/2/2014
Time is 6:30pm

March Project

This month we are using the Skylark paper pack. The stamps we are using are Some Bunny (B1446 - a hostess only stamp set), Joyful Birthday (B1419) and Belated Birthday (B1442). The birthday card is on of the Circle Spin cards (Z1866) which is a 5X7 sized card. 

The Easter card also has a few Flamingo Dots (Z1934) added to it to bling it up a bit.  This card was difficult for some reason.  But it was the better choice of the two cards I made.  The B&T as well as the Lagoon card stock were cut on the cricut using the Art Phiosophy cartridge.

For club, please bring the following items:
Puff-up tape
Blending Pen (mine is drying out, need new one)
Piercing tool (help with Flamingo Dots)
Colored pencils (I'll have mine available, but you are welcome to bring your own if you don't want to wait)

Christmas Card Gifts!

Now that all the Christmas Gifts have been handed out, here is what Family and Friends received for Christmas from us.

 The card below was for my Grandniece whose Birthday is on Christmas Day. So the inside had two gift cards, one on the birthday side and one on the Christmas side of the card.
