August Club projects

We had a lot of fun making these pages and cards on Wednesday at Club.  Remember if you join SOS Club you will be able to make these fun pages or cards as well.  SOS Club will be moved from Tuesday the 18th to Wednesday the 19th for this month.  Be sure to contact me asap if you want to come.  Click here for the other pages and all the details.

This month we used the all in the family set.  Remember right now when you buy this set you can get a set of free buttons.  This is good for any $35.00 purchase in the growing up section of the catalog.  Click here for more details.

Club Aug Family PageThe all in the family set is a perfect set to use with our Stamp-a-ma-jig.  I showed them how I took the thick window sheets and cut 2 x 2 squares so that I could make a jig for all the pieces and keep them with my stamp set.  It works great for anything you use your Stamp-a-ma-jig with all the time such as alphabet sets.

Brandi C'09This fun layout came from a page that my up-line Brandi made for a 12 x 12 swap from convention. 

Janice C'09Here is the fun page she made using the under the stars set which is also part of the growing up section of the catalog.

When we were going the other convention swaps we noticed another page that uses the same layout.  It was done by my other up-line Janice.  I love it when you can use the same layout to create three different and great pages.  Remember when you need some inspiration just turn to our great catalog.  Find a layout you like then pick a color scheme and a Stamp Set.  You’ll have your own unique creation in no time.

Club Aug Happy Together

Here are the cards that our members got to make.  It hard to see but the happy together is made with a fun new technique that I learned at convention.  I used the bone folder to curl the piece just like you would ribbon on a present.  I wanted it curled two directions so I started in the middle and went one way then I flipped it over and went the other way.







Club Aug Birthday CardNotice that I also used the piercing tool on the cards and the pages.  I love that the piercing tool is finally avalible by itself.  Be sure to order this great tool for your own projects.

Remember you can get the cute buttons like shown on the birthday card for free with your $35.00 purchase from the growing up section.  This offer ends August 31st so call me today 435-245-5321.  Click here to check out the great growning up promotions.

Thrifty Thursday 3-19-09

Thrifty Thursday is all about cost efficiency.  What I love about this card is it uses the products that come in the standard starter kit.  Remember you can get started as a Stampin’ Up!® demonstrator for three easy payments of $67.00.  Click here for more details.  The starter kit has over $335.00 worth of product in it for just $199.00.

I  really like this card beacuse it’s simple and easy to change the thanks-flower-normalcolors.  The flower can be stamped or you can create any color by stampin’ it in VersaMark® and then using the Stampin’ Pastels® to add color.  I recommend using the sponge daubers for this technique because it is easy and fast but you can also use q-tips.  I really love the Stampin’ Pastels because they give you all the 48 colors plus 3 neutral colors for less than $25.00.  It’s really the best way to get all of our colors to start off with and they are so easy to use.

thanks-flower-dressed-upOne of the other things I love about this card is it’s so easy to dress it up.  Here I have stamped the back ground (sorry it’s hard to see) with the little flower in the set and then I also added some ribbon along the top.  Any white ribbon is great to start with because it goes with pretty much everything plus you can dye it to match your colors.  If you would like to learn how to use our great chalks or to dye ribbon I would love to come to your home and show you and your friends how.  Just give me a call and we can set up a date 435-245-5321.

One last thing that I love about this card is the saying.  It comes from fundamental phrases.  This stamp set is so versital.  I has many different sayings.  You could make up a bunch of these cards in different colors without the saying and then just choose the appropriate saying when you need it.  It’s so simple and easy.  You don’t need to run to a store every time you need a quick card.
