Scrapbook Class/Club - Tuesday, January 28


Here are the pages we made at Scrapbook Class this week....

I have been loving the Fresh Prints Designer Series Paper Stack - the colors are so fun and vibrant - perfect to cheer you up on a long, cooooold winter day!!


We added 1 1/2" wide strips of various patterns from the Fresh Prints DSP Stack to the bottom of the first page and then the top of the 2nd page.  We also put a strip of Coastal Cabana card stock punched with the Scallop Trim Border Punch along those pieces - I just love that dainty scallop edge!




Fresh Prints Designer Series Paper Stack  132996  $6.95



Scallop Trim Border Punch  118402  $15.95


We made a cute tag (courtesy of inspiration from Ronda Wade) for the corner of one page...


We stamped "Love You to the moon and back" from the Love You to the Moon Stamp Set, added a small strip of Coastal Cabana embossed with the Scallops Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and then tied a Soft Suede Taffeta bow on top of the tag.



Scalloped Tag Topper Punch  133324  $22.95




Love You to the Moon Stamp Set  wood-mount  133140  $24.95
Love You to the Moon Stamp Set  clear-mount  133143  $17.95




Scallops Textured Impressions Embossing Folder  132971  $7.95




Soft Suede 3/8" Taffeta Ribbon  122967  $6.95

Next, we stamped those cute, little hearts from the Language of Love Stamp Set in Real Red ink, punched them with the Small Heart Punch and popped them up on dimensionals.




Language of Love Stamp Set  wood-mount  133074  $16.95
Language of Love Stamp Set  clear-mount  133077  $12.95



Small Heart Punch  117193  $5.95



Stampin' Dimensionals  104430  $3.95

We also stamped the little heart flags from the Language of Love Stamp set and added a Real Red Candy Dot to one of the hearts.




Brights Candy Dots  130931  $5.95

Finally, we stamped those fun sayings "Hello... you're on my mind", "XOXO" and "a little love note" from the Love You to the Moon Stamp Set, punched them out with the Label Bracket Punch and then mounted them on various (Coastal Cabana, Baked Brown Sugar, and Pink Pirouette) 1 3/4" circles.




Label Bracket Punch  132153  $15.95


This is the last page we made at class this month...


It features the Retro Fresh Designer Series Paper - I love this color combination....   Baked Brown Sugar, Coastal Cabana, So Saffron, Tangerine Tango and Very Vanilla.  We also added a fun Essentials Wooden Element to the top of the page - this is a word bubble that I thought would be fun to use for a caption on the page once I decide what pictures will go on it!



Retro Fresh Designer Series Paper  132993  $10.95



Essentials Wooden Elements  132258  $4.95


Lastly, we added the fun "oh, Happy Day" sentiment and those cute pinwheels using the Starburst Sayings Stamp Set.  These pieces were die-cut with the coordinating Starburst Sayings framelits.  These two items are bundled together for a 15% savings when you buy them both!




Starburst Sayings Bundle  wood-mount  134817  $44.95
Starburst Sayings Bundle  clear-mount  134818  $38.95


I hope you enjoyed these pages!!

Thank You Cards for a Friend


This is a picture of the Thank You cards I made for a friend.  He knew that I made cards and asked what I charged for a "box" of cards.  I thought that was pretty cute!  I've actually only sold my cards individually (and never boxed them up!) - although that does sound like a pretty good idea!  He went on to say that he'd bought boxes of generic thank you cards in the past but thought he'd like a more personalized card this time. He's using these for his business thank you's (he's a general contractor), so I thought this masculine look would be perfect for his cards!



We start with a Basic Gray card base, then add another Basic Gray layer embossed with the Chevron embossing folder and a strip of (masculine!) DSP from the Soho Subway Designer Series Paper.  Next, we stamped "Thanks So Much" from the Oh, Hello set and added that grungy strip of lines below the thank you with the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set.  Finally, we made the "tag" look on the thank you with the Angled Tag Topper Punch and added a Basic Metal Button tied with some Silver Baker's Twine.  I love the masculine look of this card, how about you??





Soho Subway Designer Series Paper  130140  $10.95



Oh, Hello Stamp Set  (wood-mount)  131931  $25.95
Oh, Hello Stamp Set  (clear-mount)  130733  $18.95



Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set  (wood-mount)  130514  $24.95
Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set  (clear-mount)  130517  $17.95



Angled Tag Topper Punch  133323  $22.95



Basic Metal Buttons  133319  $7.95



Silver Baker's Twine  132976  $3.50

I hope you enjoyed this card!!
