New Layout

I've been busy playing with paper, stencils, ink and various art mediums. PSL is happening at Club Scrap right now. PSL stands for Pro Scrapbooking League. When you sign up you're placed on a team and every week given a challenge. The first week you were to use stencils. The 2nd week art mediums. And now our 3rd week we are challenged to use stamps. And of course it is all done with a minimum of 50% Club Scrap materials. I'm sharing a layout that I did for the stencil challenge. I was really amazed that the papers from their Centennial Casual kit worked for this layout.

Thanks for looking!

Club Scrap "Share the Love" Blog Hop

Today there are some of us who are sharing our love for Club Scrap. I have been a member of Club Scrap since 2005. I took a break in 2009, but just couldn't stay away I love their paper so much. Each of us have posted a project showcasing their products. So... here is mine.

My card is for my dh and is made with the super fun My Funny Valentine kit. I think that he'll like it. This kit came as part of a WOW (weekend of workshops) event. Super fun! Everything on the card came from the kit, except the white paper used for the hearts. The small hearts on top I used the stencil that came with the kit to make my own designer paper and then used the smallest heart on the stencil to trace and then cut out. They were popped out with foam dots. The ink color on the hearts is Club Scraps newest pigment ink called Blush.

Now for the fun part! You get to visit the next stop on the way. Juju's Folly

January Project 365

I've had to modify what I do for Project 365. It has been very difficult to take a picture every day. In January I accidentally dropped my good camera, breaking it in the process and so the desire to take pictures is almost non existent. Thankfully Weeds and Wildflowers has helped to make things simpler. I'm doing a weekly layout of the pictures that I take. Sometimes I only have 3 pictures for the week, sometimes more. But I'm only doing 1 page a week. So far I'm happy with my decisions to cut back. I have lots of irons in the fire and need to budget my time better.

 Everything used for these layouts is from Weeds and Wildflowers.

Paisley cards

Club Scrap provided a card alsb (assembly line scrap booking) for their January stamp kit 'Lotus Pond'. I loved the instructions so I decided to pull out a set of 12 8-1/2x11 papers from their March '06 'Paisley' kit to try them out. The cards turned out wonderful!

I think that I might be using the instructions with another kit some time. Everything used is from Club Scrap.
