Scrapbook Layouts for October

Scrapbook Layouts for October

I started Scrap Club years ago as a way to make sure I keep up with scrapbooking my own pictures while helping others keep up with their pages at the same time.  It has worked well for me!  I have spent some time in the last months going back and putting pages in order and into scrapbooks, and although a lot of pages still need to actually work their way into books, I’m making good progress and finding I’ve done pretty well at recording things over the years.  Hopefully my future daughters-in-law will appreciate all the pictures (and books)!

I want to quickly share the scrapbook layouts we are making this month in Scrap Club.  These layouts will work well with just about any pictures you may wish to use.Continue reading

Wintry 3D Embossing Folder

Wintry 3D Embossing Folder

Yesterday I shared a Christmas stamp set from the Annual Stampin’ Up! catalog to make sure you haven’t missed it.  Today I want to point out the Wintry 3D embossing folders it the catalog.  Have you seen them?  Check out page 155.

Wintry 3D embossing folders

This is a set of two embossing folders and they are both great!  These are such wonderful background images for Christmas cards!  You do want to note that they embossing folders are only 6 1/4″ x 3 3/8″ in size, but there is still so much you can do with them.

Check out this card which we made in the Christmas Cards II class.

Evergreen Elegance Christmas Stamp Set

Evergreen Elegance Christmas Stamp Set

There are so many lovely Christmas stamp sets in the holiday catalog; it’s really easy to miss those that are in the Annual Catalog.  Have you noticed the evergreen Elegance stamp set on page 91 of the holiday catalog?

We pulled this out for the Christmas Cards II class recently.

Christmas Cards II Class Card

Christmas Cards II Class Card

I can’t believe we’ve already completed Christmas Card Class 2 out of 5!  Yikes!  These classes are just going to fly by . . . again!  No matter how early we get started, these classes always seem to just whiz by and suddenly we find ourselves needing to get them out in the mail ASAP.

Our first two classes have been well attended and much enjoyed!

Check out one of the cards we made!Continue reading

Christmas Trimmings Handmade Card

Christmas Trimmings Handmade Card

With the Holiday Catalog it is easy to overlook the Christmas items we have in the Annual Catalog!  Have you checked them out?  For our first Christmas Card Class we pulled out the Christmas Trimmings dies which are in the Annual Catalog.  I think I purchased this set mainly because of the star.  (Am I the only one that does that?  Purchase a set primarily because of one image?)

The star reminds me of string art which we’ve done a lot of in this house.

Here’s the card we made in class.

Joy Christmas Card in Traditional Colors

Joy Christmas Card in Traditional Colors

I’m finding myself leaning more toward traditional Christmas colors for our cards this year.  Each year tends to be a little different.  Sometimes I think it varies based on the designer paper Stampin’ Up releases.  I’m really enjoying the Tidings of Christmas DSP this year.  It’s very classy!

This is a fun tower card I made to spotlight a technique I was sharing in my Tech Club last month.  See what you think.Continue reading

Heartfelt Wishes Christmas Card

Heartfelt Wishes Christmas Card

I really like the script of the Heartfelt Wishes stamp set, don’t you?  I also like the fact that the set works well for multiple occasions.  Of course right now I’m mainly focused on Christmas cards, but I did use the set several times for fall cards as well.

Check out this lovely Christmas Card!Continue reading
