July Club

I love the month of July mainly for the fireworks! I thought it would be fun to create something with a patriotic theme and this is what I came up with. It was so easy. The stars are from the star jumbo roller stamp and then I cut them out with the large and small star punch. I also love the glitter on the card and the texture created by the crimper. Hope you can find some inspiration to help you create your own projects.

Internet Down

I am so sorry I haven't been able to add anything to my blog lately because the internet is down at my home. I am trying to get it fixed and hope to be up and running soon.

June Club

My theme for last months club is "No Stamps". I know this sounds weird because at the heart of Stampin Up are stamps, but they have come out with so many other products that I thought it would be fun to make projects without stamps.
I bought a lot of Designer Series Paper last month because of the great deal Stampin' Up was offering, so I used it on this great card. I love the summer colors and the easy die cut flowers and cute button. But "Hey" you say, "I thought you weren't using stamps, what are these words I see"...well... they are rub-ons. Check them out on page173 of the catalog. Rub-ons are really nice to have, they are quick and easy to add to any project, stick to about anything (I've used them on candles, glass, and paper of course) and they are really easy to store because they are flat; and now they are coming out in color!
Here are the pages we did in club last month. I love the simplicity that simply scrappin kits provide. There were not enough stickers for everyone to have the same flower so there were 3 options. Which one do you like the best?
