December Projects

I am excited about our December cards featuring the Roxie papers.  They are paired with the December Stamp of the Month which is a Valentine's Day set.  If this is your selected project at a December playgroup, you will make a buckle card, a card with the a blingy band and zebra striped scored medallion and a treat holder for either Ghiradelli chocolates or tea bags.  Contact me for a time you can attend playgroup.  You will be glad you did!

Our wonderful daughter-in-law sent these too-cute pictures of Kayleigh to us and they were just right for the Roxie papers.  Roxie would also be perfect for Christmas or Valentine photos.  To make them more masculine, use Desert Sand instead of the Zip Strip and embellish with Milepost Shapes made from corrugated chipboard shapes.  The pages could be your project for playgroup in December or the left page a project for a gathering.

November Projects

The card projects for November use the TYPESET papers.  I included a lot of Cricut shapes to go along with the Stamp of The Month, Cherish the Day.  The stamps go on the ticket shapes made by the Cricut.  Here we will stamp on Colonial White cardstock and then sponge in Creme Brulee.  The ribbon is tied through a buckle shape made with the Cricut.  To give it strength, I had people stack three shapes on top of each other and glue them together. 

For scrapbook pages in November we are using the TYPESET papers.  The pages are based on a layout featured on page 18 of the Autumn Winter Idea Book.  The pattern or design for these pages (Magician's Choice) is found in our Magic how-to book.  If you have never looked in to our how-to books, I would encourage you to do so.  Priced at $21.95 each, you cannot go wrong.  They make great gifts for those special people in your life who like to scrapbook.
