Club Scrap Literature Blog Hop

Welcome to the Club Scrap Literature Blog hop! If you arrived here from Julie's Blog you are in the right place. If you lost your way or would like to return to Club Scrap just head HERE.

Recently I have been spending a lot of my crafting time trying to get my scrap room cleaned and organized. While cleaning I found a mini canvas album project that was included in the Hopes kit back in 2013. I decided to finally put it together but decided to use my Literature kit papers and stamps.

This is a great little project using two small canvas for the covers. It is the perfect size for a brag book or for wallet size photos. I am planning to use mine for my book club to keep track of the books we have read.

I just love this month's color palette. These colors will work with so many different themes. The possibilities are endless.

I just love the the little window and it was the perfect size for my favorite quote from the Literature kit!

Club Scrap October Artist Team Challenge

I found this the other day and Facebook and it spoke to me. See I am absolutely on the left. I love everything about the holidays. I love the decorations, the food, the holiday movies. My family can not wait for the first seasonal viewing of the movie ELF. We have a daily family text with the ELF quote of the day and of course we count down the days until Christmas! 

While scouring Pinterest for gift ideas I came across this awesome Christmas Countdown Calendar. I knew immediately I wanted to recreate one for us and to also a few to send to my nieces and nephews. She used the ever popular IKEA Tolsby frame. Sadly there is no IKEA close to me but I found some similar frames a while back in Michael's.

I used my all time favorite Club Scrap kit Gnome for the Holidays! It was the Christmas kit released back in 2013.I started by cutting out some different shaped tags; some on the Pazzle and some by hand. I also used the Pazzle to cut the numbers and some of the inside shapes.

I decorated each flag individual using the beautiful patterned papers, the stamps and the cut aparts from the kit.

I also used bling, glitter and various embellishments from my stash.

If you are planning on making one for yourself or as a gift I will let you know that I needed to use 2.5 inch rings to hold all the banners and to give enough space for them too turn. I am so excited with my project I am not sure how I am going to wait for December.

Club Scrap Garden Shed Blog Hop

Welcome to the Club Scrap Garden Shed Blog Hop. If you arrived here from Julie's blog you are in the right place. If you lost your way or would like to return to the Club Scrap Blog go HERE.


This month I created some cards using the Club Scrap Greetings to Go and the Garden Shed Digital Kit.  

Garden Shed Greetings to Go

Garden Shed Digital Kit

For my cards I started with the card bases and mats that are included in the Greetings to Go. For my first two cards I used the quad print included in the digital kit. I printed it out on white card stock and cut it to fit inside the green panels. The sentiments and ribbon were  included with the Greetings to Go.

For this card I also used one of the backgrounds from the quad print. This beautiful image is one of the digital elements that I also printed on plain white cardstock. I fussy cut the image and then layered onto green yardstick from the kit and fussy cut it again. The fiber were included in the embellishment pack.

I think this final card is my favorite because of these cute little butterflies. 

I cut two images for each butterfly to create a 3D effect. Aren't they the cutest? 

I really enjoyed working with the Digital Kit this month. It was so easy to use. I did not edit or change any of the pages. I just downloaded the kit and printed it out on cardstock. Now I have a number of pages with beautiful elements to use in my crafting. If you have never worked with Club Scrap Digital I really encourage you to check it out!

Club Scrap Sunflowers Blog Hop

Welcome to the Club Scrap Sunflowers Blog Hop. If you arrived here from Julie's Blog, you are in the right place. If you have lost your way or would like to return to Club Scrap go HERE.

I have decided that I need to get more of my pictures off of my computer and on to scrapbook pages. I started by cutting up my kit following the assembly line instructions. I wait until I find pictures before adhering any of the pieces though so I can make changes as needed.

My daughter and youngest son where both in the high school production of Shrek last spring.  I was amazed at how well the pictures from the play coordinated with the Sunflowers kit. This is a great example of how versatile Club Scrap kits are and also how your pictures do not have to match the theme. 

My layouts are quite simple but these papers are just so beautiful I did not want to cover them up. 

Thanks for hopping along with us today. Your next stop on the hop is Esther's Blog. Don't forget to head back to the Club Scrap blog and share your Sunflowers projects.

Club Scrap August Artist Team Challenge


It's that time of year again. I have to admit that I am one of those moms that HATES back to school time. I like having the kids home and I especially love the lack of homework, assignments and schedule. Summer is also my favorite season and back to school means the end of summer and the start to cold and snowy seasons. 

There is one aspect of back to school that I look forward to and that is shopping for school supplies. I just love all the cute stationary and office supplies. So when this month's Club Scrap Artist Team Challenge was to create a project incorporating "Back to School" I knew exactly what I wanted to use for inspiration..............Post-it notes!

Post-it notes are one of my favorite office supplies. I use them all day at work, in my scrap room and carry them in my purse.  So I decided to create different ways to protect my precious post-it pads.

 The first project is a travel holder for a post-it pad. I wanted to make holders for the kids for school. You can find numerous ideas for these on Pinterest. I knew I wanted mine to be sturdy and stand up to travel so I decided to use Club Scrap mat board for the covers. 

All of the paper used is from Club Scrap assorted paper packs I picked up last year at Retreat. I made this one for my daughter for school. The quote and flowers are from the Club Scrap Girlfriends unmounted rubber.

The next one I made for my son. The stars stamp is from the Club Scrap American Flag collection and the quote is from the Catina collection.

I wanted the covers to be reusable so I added a pocket inside for the pad to slide into.

For my second project I wanted to create a holder for my scrap table. The first holder I created using mat board and I included a frame to add pictures or sayings.

Using Velcro squares I decided to make it interchangeable. I created 3inch x 3 inch mini art work and added Velcro to the back of each. Now I can change them out depending on my mood.

I was having so much fun I decided to make a second holder using Club Scrap book board so it would be extra sturdy for my work desk. I decided to add a small divider so I could also store paper clips with my post-its.
