Club Scrap Paradise Blog Hop

Welcome to Paradise!

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

 I was so excited for the release of this kit. I had begged Tricia for a very long time to include flamingos in one of the Club Scrap kits, I tried my hardest back when giving ideas for the Gnome for Christmas kit to include a flamingo but I couldn't convince her. Somehow at Retreat this year (it must have been a weak moment for Tricia or she just got tired of my whining) I got her to consider a flamingo! I pitched my best idea of a "Paradise" inspired kit that of course would include my beloved flamingo. I started working on a power point presentation while in the airport waiting for my flight home. I was so excited!


I have to say I was also a little nervous. I had ideas and a vision in my head and I didn't know what Jac would do with my suggestions. As usual, Club Scrap did NOT disappoint, this kit is AMAZING. It was all I hoped for and more. Gosh I really love this club!


I got a little side tracked this month with making Christmas cards so I haven't spent as much time with Paradise as I hoped. I did manage some cards for the blog hop. My first card is a simple all occasion card starring my favorite flamingo. I used the Sunflower Sparkle Stickers to add a little bling.

Next up I used the super cute pineapple stamp. I stamped it twice and cut out the leaves from the second and layered them on to the first image. I see a lot of pineapples in my future!



For my next card I created a border aroung my card with one of the stamps and using my MISTI.  How great are all these stamps? Tropical drinks and guitars.





For my last card I again used the pineapple stamp. I made a mask of the image so I was able to create a group of pineapples. I was so happy with the results.


Thanks so much for stopping by today, Your next stop on the hop is Tina's Blog and do NOT forget to head back to the Club Scrap store and pick up your own piece of Paradise!
