Club scrap july team challenge

Hi all, welcome to the club scrap team challenge! For our team challenge we were asked to make one of the following:

ATC's are artist trading cards that are usually 2 1/2 by 3 1/2 inches that are your lil works of art used for trading with other artists and they fit into baseball card pocket pages for storage too. 

I chose to make 6 coordinating atc's and by the way these were the first i ever made. I hope ya like them! I had a ton of fun making them! All the stamps, ribbon cutaparts and papers are from the club scrap office kit and past kits. 
Here they are:

Club scrap office space july blog hop

Hi all, welcome to the club scrap office space july bloghop!! Today i am sharing with you a 12x12 page i made using the stencil from the kit as well as the patterned papers ,border cutaparts, and a sentiment stamp i used as my title. 
For the base of my page i used deep orange cardstock and layered the green patterned paper on top. I added green and orange photo mats under my picture. Next i mixed up green and grey pigment powder into my whipped spackle and made a light green color to stencil the cute stencil saying around my page. Next, i fussy cut out that cool retro design and placed that on my page and added border strips layered underneath. Then, i stamped and cut out  the sentment saying and cutout a memo card to add my journaling. Lastly, i added some white ink splats around the page to finish it. I had so much fun playing with this kit! Make sure you keep on hopping to see the awesome projects ahead. 

12 x 12 page

Canvas project

Hi all, today i am stopping by to show you a project i did for my older brother. He loved a saying and asked me to do something to put on his office wall and he said i could make it any color or way i wanted for him. So i found a 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 foot blank canvas at walmart and decided to give it a try. Note- i have never painted a big canvas before so this was all new to me. 
I started by gessoing the whole canvas to give it some grab for the paint then for the colors i used my brothers screen saver as inspiration. I loved the flame colors on the black so i ran with that idea. I painted the canvas yellow,orange and red. Blending the colors together a bit( let dry) Next, i took out all my big stickers of different fonts and even cut a few on my cricut too. And stuck them down. ( note -use vinyl stickers if ya can they come off later easier or as my tombowpro friend  debbie gave me a great tip and reminded me the mono temporary adhesive works great for the letters too) then once i had all my letters/words down i painted black paint over top of the whole canvas. Let dry throughly.  Then peel the letter stickers up to reveal the colored paint underneath. Some paint did bleed under but i think it just adds character tothe canvas   and handmade look ( at least that is what i am telling myself.. Lol) i did touch up spots later on. And for the stickers that the adhesive stuck , i used my special adhesive eraser to help clean it up. Then lastly,  i bought some trim wood from home depot and cut pieces to make a frame around the 1/2 inch deep canvas. I used my awesome tombow extreme adhesive runner to run adhesive along the wood and stick to the canvas instead of hotglue and it worked awesome! Below are pics of my process:

Page i made for the stuck?! Sketch challenge using club scrap goodies

Hi all, happy saturday!!! I am popping on today to share a 12x12 page i made using the sketch from the stuck july sketch challenge. All the papers,ribbon,paper clips and stamped images i used are from the july club scrap office space kit. 
really loved  the lil pics of my lil dd playing in the leaves and used them as my starting point.  I really loved the bright pink on her sweat jacket so i ran with the pink by adding pink ink  into the cool pattern paper and then adding more pink with my marker , lil post it notes( they are in the kit too) and sequins from my stash.  So i guess you can say i made my page girlier than i had plannned. But i love how it turned out! Thanks for stopping by and happy creating!
