Club Scrap Lagoon Kit With Case This Sketch 234

Hi Everyone,
Today I played along with Case This Sketch sketch #234. I used Club Scrap's Lagoon Kit which is packed with stamps, patterned paper and stunning embellishments.

Here is Sketch#234

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

All product used is from the Lagoon Kit. The base and background are the plain cardstock. I stamped the background bubbles with Neon Blue Ink Pad and the sentiment with India Ink Pad. I diecut the circle and scalloped circle using plain cardstock. The super cute fish is also from the Lagoon collection and colored with promarkers.

Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to mark your calendars for the Club Scrap Artist Team Challenge on Aug.23.

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.

I used plain cardstock for the base of my card. On plain cardstock I stamped the ink splats with the stamp from Dahlia. The dandelion and sentiment are from the Vintage Botany collection. Clean and simple.
