Club Scrap Blog Hop - Cantina

Welcome to the Club Scrap Cantina Blog Hop!

If you traveled here from Janet's blog, then you are following the hop!  If you've lost your way or just want to see all the links in one place, head over to the Club Scrap blog to see a list of all the talented bloggers participating today.

This month's Cantina Kit is such a bright and fun kit. I am totally in love! The beauty of these papers is that they are so beautiful on their own you don't need to add much. I used my Greetings to Go this month and made some cards. I just love having a set of cards with matching bases. It gives you a great starting point if you want to get creative and do your own thing (like I did) or it comes with all the cut aparts and embellishments you need to quickly make beautiful homemade cards. If you haven't played with the Greeting to Go set of cards you are missing out. Check them out here. So on to my cards!


Thanks so much for stopping by. Head on over to Annette's Blog next.
Don't forget to check out the whole Club Scrap cantina Collection here!
Wishing You a Wonderfully Creative Day!

Minions and Dinosaurs!

Welcome to the Club Scrap Artist Team July Challenge!


The challenge this month was to create a project inspired by the pictures of the minions!
When I original came up with the idea for this challenge it was because I am a HUGE minions fan and the new Minions Movie opened this month. I have a large collection of minions. They keep me company in my scrap room and on my desk at work!

What I did not realize was how well this month's Club Scrap Cantina kit complimented these images.
My original plan was to make a layout about my love of minions and my collection. That is so NOT what I wound up with. I wound up with a dinosaur "birthday cake".

My daughter's BFF turned 16 this month. Catie and I had discussed the ides of making a "cake" to hold her present. Well, time got away from us and of course the night before the big party we are making the "cake"
 I tried to persuade Catie to let me create a Minions cake. I begged, showed her all the adorable minions in the store but to no avail. Catie held firm that the cake had to have DINOSAURS!
Her BFF loves dinosaurs so nothing else would do.

All the papers are from the July Club Scrap Cantina Kit. We covered each box differently. We used some foam dinosaur stickers and of course I had to add some bling!
The "cake topper" we constructed from plastic dinosaurs. Gotta love the dollar bins at Target. The large dinosaur (bright yellow like the Minions) actually growls and his eyes light up when you move his tail. I think it is a Fisher Price toy (not from the dollar bin).


 I just LOVE the Catina kit! You should hop on over to Club Scrap and check out the whole Cantina Collection!
