Club Scrap October Literature Kit Blog Hop

Good Morning Everyone!

Welcome to the Club Scrap Literature Blog Hop. If you came from Anne Marie's Blog then you came from the right place.  If you didn't you can start at the beginning with Karen at Club Scrap's Blog.

This style pop up card is everywhere right now. It's circulating within the scrapbooking community. Artist Team member Hetty first did it a few weeks back. She inspired me to do one of my own. Here is the tutorial. It is actually much easier than it looks.

All product used was from the Literature Kit with the exception of the inside card background. That cork paper is from the Literature Digital Kit. The band is made with the cutapart and the brown shimmer paper is diecut with the butterfly from Elizabeth Craft Designs.

I hope you enjoyed this easy Pop Up using the Literature Kit.  Now to continue the fun head on over to Lisa's Blog.

Club Scrap October Artist Team Challenge with Literature Kit

Hi Everyone,

Are you ready for an awesome Artist Team Challenge Blog Hop with Club Scrap Literature Kit!  With the Holidays coming up the theme is Gift Giving. First things first if you came from Lisa'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.  I decided to create a project that will hold cards to give as a gift.  My gift folder holds minimum 4 cards layered with embellishments including envelopes.  Below you will see the steps to recreating the gift folder as well as the cards I made.  I apologize in advance it will be a slightly long post.

The cover is plain cardstock. 

Turn over cover and set aside.
Cut 2 solid paper 5 1/4 x 6 (front & side of cover), 1 solid paper 3/4 x 5 3/4 (spine of cover).
Cut 2 patterned paper 5 x 5 3/4 (front & side of cover), 1 patterned paper 1/2 x 5 1/2 (spine of cover). Matte solid pieces with pattern pieces on top. Only adhere the spine to the cover. Add some adhesive to the center of spine and center of front & back of cover. Add the ribbon. Adhere paper to front and back covering the ribbon.  See picture below for visual. 

The folder pouches are cut on patterned paper. You need to cut and score 2 pieces as below. 

The next step is to cut where I indicated the lines in red.

It should look like this after cutting. 

Now turn over and place double sided adhesive as picture below. 

Peel off the protective strips and starting with the small square bring it inwards following the sides. Take the bottom and fold on top. When assembled it should look like photo below. Adhere to inside of cover at the bottom.

Here is the folder with the cards inside. 

Here are the 4 cards I made for the Gift Folder. They were made with the Literature Kit.  I printed the pattern on solid white cardstock. They are all 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 folded.  

A Shaker card.  I will have instructions on an upcoming post how to make one.

I hope you enjoyed this easy Gift Card Holder which makes a wonderful gift.  Thanks for stopping by.  Your next stop is Anne Marie's Blog.

Club Scrap Blog Hop With Garden Shed Kit

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to the Garden Shed Blog Hop from Club Scrap. First things first, if you came from Anne Marie'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.

For my card I started with the stamps from the Jumbo Unmounted Set. Using India Ink from Club Scrap I stamped my image. I used distress ink on an acrylic block and a waterbrush to gently apply some color. Once dry I used distress ink and inked the edges. My background was created using Color Burst on the light green patterned paper. Once dry I layered the papers. For the sentiment I embossed it on a scrap of the paper I created with the color burst. Last I made a flower using Elizabeth Craft Design dies (I used Prills for the center of the flower).

Thanks for stopping by.  Now to continue the fun head on over to Lisa's Blog.

Club Scrap September Artist Team Challenge Garden Shed Kit

Hi Everyone,

Today it's the Artist Team Challenge with Club Scrap. The challenge this month is to use wooden elements on your projects. 

Now first things first if you came from Lisa's blog then you've come from the right place. If you didn't you can start at the beginning with Karen at Club Scrap.

All product is from the Garden Shed Kit unless otherwise stated. Be sure to grab yours now.

For my first card I used the beautiful patterned paper. I stamped the word happiness on the wooden floral and attached it to my card with two brads. The brads are from stash.  Finished card measures 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 folded.

For my next card I decided to think outside of the box. I used an actual thin branch. Using the Curvy Leaves die from Elizabeth Craft Designs and plain cardstock from Garden Shed kit i layered the leaves to the branch. Finished card measures 6x6 folded. 

For my next card I altered the Wood Plant Stakes that comes with the Garden Shed Kit. I painted it with acrylic paint.  Once dry I used distress ink to give it a rustic look. With the stencil also from the kit I inked the word Love.  I tied all 3 gorgeous ribbons from the kit to altered stake. Truth be told I couldn't decide which one to use so I used them all. The snail is from the cutapart. The butterfly was stamped using India ink from Club Scrap and on the soft Green patterned paper. I cut out the butterfly and added some glue to the center and placed on the card. Added some sequins from my stash. Finished card measures 6x6 folded. 

Thanks for stopping by. Your next stop is Roni's blog.

Club Scrap Garden Shed Kit with Mojo Monday Sketch 464 Challenge

Happy Sunday Everyone,

Sometimes it happens, we get a creative block.  Using sketches and/or challenges helps to get our creative juices flowing.

Today I am showing you a card using the Garden Shed Kit from Club Scrap which is inspired from the Sketch 464 by Mojo Monday.  A challenge especially using a sketch is suggestive and doesn't mean you have to copy it exactly as the sketch.  For the sketch below I chose to turn it 90 degrees clockwise and I dropped the diamond.

My card is using the new kit from Club Scrap - Garden Shed Kit.  The green drops are from Nuvo Crystal Drops.

TFL! Be sure to mark your calendar for September 23rd for the Club Scrap Artist Team Challenge Blog Hop!
