July Club Project

I like the simplicity of this page...the pictures can be the focus without a ton of other embellishments. But I also love the flowers made from the Circle Circus set and the new In Color markers. A button from Button Latte gives the middle flower just a little something extra. And the crimped stems are so fun.

It's not really obvious from the picture, but this is a spinner card, made with two pennies and a Stampin' Dimentional. This set is perfect for a spinner kids are mesmerized by it! The paper at the bottom is from the new Razzleberry Lemondade Designer Series Paper, which is also one of my new favorites!

New Stuff

My favorite new stamp set is Circle Circus. I've had my eye on this set ever since the Australian catalog came out and I spotted it in there. I held my breath hoping that not only would it make it into the US catalog, but also that it would be available as a pre-order for demonstrators. My wish came true, and this set was the first thing I ordered....along with all the new In Colors! This is the first time I've ever liked them all, and I've been having fun playing with them. So, here are a couple of samples featuring all the new colors plus my new favorite stamps:

New Catalog!

It's here, and it's fabulous! The new In-Colors are so pretty! I'll get some projects posted soon. I'll have catalogs for club members at our July club, but if you're anxious to see it, click here.

May Club Projects

I'm only two months big deal! These are the two projects that we made at our May stamp club.

The first is this card that uses the Great Friend stamp set. I love this set, can you tell? I'm so glad it's going to be in the new catalog!
card stock/paper: Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, Kraft, Walk in the Park (sorry, it's retired)
ink: Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Very Vanilla (craft ink)
accessories: Chocolate Chip 1/4" grosgrain ribbon, linen thread, matchbox die & Big Shot, Stamp-a-ma-jig, paper piercer, scallop edge punch

Next is this 12x12 scrapbook page. The layout isn't mine...I used one from pagemaps. It's a great place to find fantastic scrapbook page layouts when you're having trouble being creative!

card stock/paper: Cameo Coral, Basic Gray, Whisper White, Walk in the Park DSP
ink: Cameo Coral, Basic Gray
stamps: Contempo Alphabet, Great Friend
accessories: Beautiful Butterflies & Big Shot, scallop edge punch, stampin' dimentionals

The large picture is 4x6, and the small pictures are 2x2 and 2x3. To get the fainter look of the leaves behind the title, I just stamped the image once, and then stamped again without reinking. It's an easy way to get a really pretty look.
