october club scrap literature blog hop

Hi all, welcome to the club scrap literature bloghop! If you are hopping along with us you are here from josette's blog if you get lost along the way there's a list of links at the bottom of this post below or if you can just  head back to club scrap's blog you'll be able to start from there to also. for this hop I made a 12 x 12 page using almost everything from the club scrap literature collection including stamps, patterned papers and cardstock. the red patterned papers layered on my page are stamps from the deluxe kit that I stamped on the red cardstock ahead of time. ( I am not sure if I shared this tip before but for scrapbooking it is my most favorite way to se stamps-- stamp out all your stamps onto different cardstocks from the kit and as you are creating just cut them out and add to your pages like you would a regular diecut.) for my base I started with the red cardstock then layered pieces or bits of the tan patterned papers onto each other around the photo. I had a embossed piece of red cardstock and star left over  the technique challenge page and decided to add them to my son's page. I then added the tan cutaprts from the kit and  added my son's name with letters from my stash on top.
lastly, I added the cute lil book charm to the thread I had hanging off my page from my sewing and a faux flair using a circle punch on the cutaparts and a enamel circle on top. I had a fun time distressing all the edges for more texture and was excited how the page came together. ( did ya notice that i love the kraft and red together?!--great color combo!)

I bent the faux fold in the paper and added dimensional dots to the back to make it look like a real book page

12 x 12  page

Page i made for the club scrap technique challenge-embossing

Hi all ,  today I'm stopping by to share a 12 x 12 page I made for the club scrap texture challenge on the club scrap blog. For this page, I used 4x6 cards from the literature collection and ran them through my embossing machine with various embossing folders. I  added them around in a square and added my photos on top with the craft paper and craft board from the kit for dimension, I then added embellishments and sequins along with a touch of gold sparkle ribbon. get your embossing on and add your project to the Linky party here:

12 x12 page

october club scrap team challenge

Hi all, i am stopping by today to share a project i made for the club scrap team challenge. If you are hopping along then you are here from Hetty's blog and if ya get lost I have list below or you can start over at the club scrap blog.
here is the challenge:
For the challenge I was thinking of something I would like to get handmade as a gift so I thought about home dΓ©cor. making handmade dΓ©cor is a awesome gift. I like making it and receiving it:) well, when I was digging out stuff from my closet and I found an old wooden shadowbox that at onetime housed a scrapbook page in my daughters room when she was a baby. Perfect! I thought, to alter  and the papers from the literature are so rich and classic to make a fun by the door organizer out of it. To see how I made it check out my picture tutorial below:

(remember the thin wood I used on that canvas project I made a lil while back?-yup I used those scraps and strong adhesive to make the slated pocket)

omg when I modge podged the kraft paper it started to look like leather instead of paper... soo cool!

finished project


all the papers, ribbons, and  metal embellishment are from the club scrap literature kit
thanks for stopping by and happy creating!!!
