September's Club Card #2



This is the second card we made at my September stamp club meetings.  We used the Hexagon Hive Thinlits Die to cut three pieces - one each from Baked Brown Sugar, Crisp Cantaloupe, and Calypso Coral card stock.  We started with a Calypso Coral card base, layered on a piece of Baked Brown Sugar (4" x 5 1/4") then the Baked Brown Sugar "honeycomb" piece.  We adhered the Coral and Cantaloupe hexagon pieces onto the Brown Sugar piece in a somewhat random pattern.  Then we added some punched flowers,pearls, a stamped piece, and the card was complete.

My club members kept all the scraps left over from making this card - and will use those pieces to complete their homework assignment.  I can't wait to see what they come up with!

PLEASE VISIT THIS BLOG POST  to see their August homework projects. The voting was close, but the project with the most vote was Kelly's card.  She will get a prize of coordinating card stock, designer series paper, and ribbon.

The Day After




World Card Making Day was yesterday and I was supposed to help my down line, Ellen, at a craft show.  But she got sick and could not make it.  And since the weather in the morning was "iffy", I decided not to go by myself.  (It was outside!)  These are the cards I made from a past Paper Pumpkin kit that I was going to display at the craft show. The kit comes with more than enough supplies to make 6 cards and 6 gift boxes.  The directions show you how to make the card above, right.  I used ideas I saw on Pinterest to make the other five.  Everything I needed to make these cards was included in the kit - except for adhesive.  And I have LOTS of supplies left over.




If you are a Paper Pumpkin subscriber - you know what a great value these kits are. And ONLY YOU are able to order refills for this kit (and selected others.)

Paper Pumpkin is a subscription craft kit that is delivered right to your mailbox every month.  Everything is included in the kit - except adhesive.  Sign up by the 10th in order to get this month's kit.  You never know what is going to be in the kit - so it is like a little bit of Christmas each and every month!  Click on the Paper Pumpkin link at the top or bottom of this blog page for more info and to JOIN NOW!

September's 3D Project


We usually make two cards and one 3D item at my monthly stamp club meetings.  The 3D items are usually my favorite - and this little box is quick and easy to make.  It is the perfect size for about 4 cards and envelopes.  You could also cut up copy paper and make a place to keep paper for notes.

I found the tutorial for this project online, but the measurements were off a bit.  If you would like the directions, please CONTACT ME and I will send you the corrected directions.
