Club Scrap August Artist Team Challenge Pinterest Tried It

Hi Everyone,
Welcome back to the Club Scrap Artist Team Challenge. This month's challenge is based on the newest feature on Pinterest. "Tried It". I went to the Club Scrap Pinterest Account and chose a Pin with a technique that inspired me. Once I completed the technique I click "Tried It". There are so many awesome techniques/tutorials but I was inspired by Julie's Double Stencil Technique. When I saw it I knew I had to try it out. For her original post go here. For the Pinterest Pin go here. Before we get started let's take care of business. If you came from Roni's Blog you came from the right place. If you didn't you can start at the beginning with Karen at Club Scrap's Blog.

The base of card is using the plain cardstock from Vintage Botany. I used the Sunflowers & Twin Tags Circles Stencil. I did this technique a little different instead of using both stencils at the same time I used the Sunflowers first and then placed the Twin Tags Circles on top and inked in a different color. I used Distress Oxides for both colors. The white cardstock is from the Paris Flea Market and is matted on black cardstock also from this kit. The sentiment is from Pattern Play and is inked with India Black Ink. All products used is from Club Scrap with the exception of Distress Oxides.

Club Scrap Lagoon Kit With Case This Sketch 235

Hi Everyone,
I had so much fun playing along with Case This Sketch and the Lagoon Kit from Club Scrap that I had to do it again. I love how sketches can help you think outside your comfort zone. I am not a CAS card maker but I think this style won't be my last.



Finished card measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" folded

The Lagoon collection has a wonderful array of rubber stamps. I stamped the seaweed & seahorse stamps with India Ink Pad and colored it with Promarkers. The seaweed is direct on my background and the seahorse was trimmed with my ScanNCut and adhered with pop-ups. The sentiment stamp was too big for where I would be placing it so I used the sentiment from the Digital Lagoon Kit to make it smaller to fit my card. I always find myself combining elements from both the paper kit and digital kit.


Thanks for stopping by. A reminder that the Club Scrap Artist Team Challenge is Aug.23. Hope you see you.

Elizabeth Craft Designs Artist Team August Challenge

Hi Everyone,
Welcome back to the Elizabeth Craft Designs Artist Team Challenge. Every month the Artist Team is challenged with a theme to showcase the fabulous product from Elizabeth Craft Designs. This month the challenge is Gift Giving.

There is a chance for you to win a $20 gift card. Visit the Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog Post. Leave a comment and answer this question. What are some handmade gifts you have created over the years. 3 lucky winners will be chosen in a random drawing.


For my project I bought a plain glass jar at the local dollar store to decorate which is perfect for a gift. Below you will find the steps to replicate this decorated jar.



  • Step 1 - Diecut Lace Pocket 2 times with Soft Finish cardstock. (The jar I used is small so if you use a larger jar you may have to diecut 3.) Adhere to jar aligning from the bottom. I had to trim a section off to not overlap. 
  • Step 2 - add embellishment to hide the seams. I used gems. This step is optional. 
  • Step 3 - cut a small piece of Soft Finish Cardstock and coat the top with a piece of Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape. Diecut using the heart from Beaded Oval Frames. 
  • Step 4 - Remove the release sheet and sprinkle Silk Microfine Glitter (I used Pewter). Remove excess and using the tip of your finger in a circular motion bring out the shine and set it in. Make a small hole towards the top of the heart. 
  • Step 5 - Add a string around the opening and add the glitter heart. Add a bead at both ends and tie at knot at both ends to secure it. 
  • Step 6 - Add a ribbon around the opening and secure it with a bow. 
  • Step 7 - Decorate with dry flowers, pens or scrapbooking tools to name a few ideas. 


Thank you for stopping by. Remember to visit the Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog to enter the contest. All product used is linked below for your convenience.
