Club Scrap Lagoon

I finally had a chance to get out my Club Stamp Lagoon kit and make some cards.  I came up with different versions from the suggestions in the kit.  I'll add these to the linky party for Lagoon.

On this card I used the Quad Print and cut slits in the seaweed.  The fish are stamped, cut out and  inserted in the slits to make it look like they are swimming in and out of the seaweed.  The fish are coated with Wink of Stella for some shine.

On this card I used the Quad Print.  I stamped the mermaid tail on contrasting paper and then used sequins to accent the bubbles.  The mermaid tail is coated with Wink of Stealla for some shine.

Cards in Envy Simple, Plain Card

The challenge on the Cards in Envy blog starts today and we are asking for simple, plain cards (Easy as 1, 2, 3).  That was a real challenge for me.

I did a stencil background (using distress ink and perfect pearls over the ink) and two die cuts.  That is as simple as I get (LOL)!  I really wanted to start working on Christmas Cards.  Yes, we have about 2 months before it is time to mail out Christmas Cards.  
Come check out what the rest of the design team did on the Cards in Envy blog.  Then link up your simple cards with us.

Hope you are enjoying the last days of the summer.   There is a new challenge on the Cards in Envy blog.  We want to see your Celebration or Congratulation cards.  I have been going through my stash and getting out some of my old Club Scrap kits.  The Constellation kit has some beautiful shiny paper that is great for celebration cards.

Club Scrap Vintage Botany Blog Hop

I got my Vintage Botany Club Stamp kit and had to start playing right away.  The stamps are just gorgeous!  (I always order the Art Nouveau and the Greetings stamps too).  I decided to try some masking and am really pleased with the results.

Because this kit is one of my absolute favorites I also ordered the Club Scrap Deluxe kit so I can make some scrapbook pages!  If you never ordered from Club Scrap before I would highly recommend this kit as your starter - you won't be disappointed.   (No I don't get any free products from them - I just LOVE their kits!)

Next week I will be attending the Club Scrap Retreat in Oshkosh Wisconsin!  I can't wait.  Here's a picture of me from the last year's retreat with the world famous Tricia Morris (Club Scrap owner)!

Cards in Envy Pink or Blue Challenge

The new challenge on the Cards in Envy blog has two color options.  Creat a card with baby blue colors OR a pretty pink colored card.  It can be "baby" cards but it doesn't have to be -- any occasion works.  I decided to choose pink and a baby card.


Over the 4th of July weekend we visited my brother and his wife.  My SIL loves to scrapbook and make cards.  I used some of her stash to make this card.  The die cuts were so adorable, they are from Crafter's Companion Little Angel Signature Collection by Sara Davies.  So stinkin' cute!  So glad my SIL had those pink pearls to finish it off!

Check out what the other design team members came up with on the Cards in Envy blog and then link up your pink or blue cards!

Pattern Play Gift Bag and Tag

I just finished up all my Club Stamp Pattern Play cards from the kit and I decided that the little gift cards Tricia had us making with the kit would be perfect for some small plain white gift bags I have.  Then I decided to decorate the bags with the great "splash" stamp in the kit.

I am late adding this to the blog hop but the linky does stay open for 30 days. If you have a Pattern Play project to show link up on the Pattern Play Blog Hop page.  

Happy Crafting!

Card in Envy White on White

The new challenge on the Cards in Envy blog is for White on White cards.  Cards should have a white background and white elements NO other color (but black or colored stamped sentiments are OK).  I decided it was time to get cracking on Christmas Cards.
