September 2021 Scrap Club Layouts

September 2021 Scrap Club Layouts

We have some fun layouts this month for Scrap Club.  I’m afraid a couple of mine do not have pictures yet because I need to print pictures from when the boys attended camp last month.  I love the fact that that particular camp takes tons of pictures and they post them for parents to be able to print.  I have way over 100 pictures of the boys while they were away at camp!  A week away at camp is the highlight of the year around here, so having pictures to put on scrapbook pages is wonderful!

I used pictures of Micah painting in his art lessons for the last layout.

Art Class Scrapbook layout

I really like how this layout turned out.  I wanted the layout to be classy to go along with his painting.  Sadly, I have already sold my retired Good Morning Magnolia stamp set which would have gone perfectly with this page.  End the end, though, I ended up filling the page and not needing the stamp set.

Thanks for coming by!  I look forward to sharing these layouts with Scrap Club members!

Nature’s Harvest Stamp of the Month Class

Nature’s Harvest Stamp of the Month Class

We have two Stamp of the Month classes this month!  I couldn’t narrow my list down so I decided to double up this month.  The first of the classes is centered around the Nature’s Harvest stamp set which I have shared with you a few different times.  Here is yet another card made with this great set!Continue reading

Beauty of Friendship Stamp of the Month Card

Beauty of Friendship Stamp of the Month Card

We had a great time creating with the Beauty of Friendship stamp set last month in our Stamp of the Month class.  Someone commented in class that this is the new stamp set to replace Lovely as a Tree.  Do you remember that set?  I’m pretty sure Lovely as a Tree wins the prize for being available in the catalog for the most years.  I remember working hard at a certain goal to try to earn that stamp set for free in a special incentive during my early days as a demonstrator (and yes, I did get it for free).

In our Stamp of the Month classes my goal is to provide card ideas that exclusively use that particular stamp set.  Sometimes that’s easier than other times!  While creating with this set, I did start to wish it included a “Merry Christmas” sentiment.  There’s a great Christmas tree in there!

Here is one of the cards we made.  This is the card that I think would be a lovely Christmas card (In fact, I am probably going to change the sentiment on my card to say “Merry Christmas” – isn’t that the beauty of having all these stamps and supplies?!)Continue reading

In Stampin’ Up! world we’re not used to having Sale-A-Bration in August and September are we?  It’s easy for even me to forget about it sometimes so I thought I’d put out a quick reminder for you.

It’s Sale-A-Bration time!  Don’t forget, you can earn free stamps, paper, or dies with qualifying purchases this month!

A Joyful Christmas to You & Yours

A Joyful Christmas to You & Yours

The Coloring Class is always a fun one.  We purposefully get to slow down and take the time to color and use different methods of coloring.

I specifically wanted to make sure we pulled out the new assortment of Soft Pastels which are available in the Annual Catalog.  It’s really easy to miss these, or to look at them and yet not know what to do with them.

We matched the pastels up with the Christmas Season stamp set and the Merriest Moments stamp set to create this lovely card.Continue reading
