Hi everybody! Club Q kits are jammed pack full of product. I used my own alternate idea for cards from a previous month's kit. What fun it was to pull in a little glitter and have a few more cards on hand, ready to gift!

                                                           "Happy, Happy, Happy!"

  •  I used a standard white card base cut @ 4 1/4 x 5 1/2
  • I then cut the paper from the kit at 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 and the floral print at 4 x 5 1/4

  • I cut a strip of the stripe paper and cut it at 4 inches.
  • Next, I fussy cut several images from the paper...including one that was on the edge.
  • I inked all of the pieces with chalk ink.

  • I added foam tape to the back of the fussy cut images.
  • I also added glue to the center of the flowers and added glitter.

  • I even added the glue in a fine line along the stripe paper!
  • I finished by adding the sentiment, cut from Cardstock Phrases sheet.

I wanted a little more of a masculine feel to the next card so I stuck with the red cut to the size stated in the previous card.

  • Ink the edges of each paper

  •  Cut a stripe of arrows and snip apart with a pair of scissors.
  • Glue red paper to card base.
  • Next, add blue paper.
  • Using foam tape, attach the arrows on the top, bottom and side.

  • Finish the card with a matted sentiment.
  • Add glue and glitter to the center of the arrows.

Club Q kits give so much more than meets the eye! I love being able to pick up a kit and have the option to create the planned project or whatever I want.  Thank you for stopping by the blog today!

Hello, everyone! It's Rebecca hosting today's blog post.  I hope everyone is enjoying sunshine and warmer weather!

While organizing my photos earlier this month, I noticed I had lots of odds and ends pictures. I decided to use them all in one double page layout using the theme, "Subway Art".

                                                                 "Work in Progress"


The layout can broken up into three different sections. I used the orange arrow paper from Secret Garden, as a base page for my layout. I cut the multi-colored stripe paper (from the same collection) into strips and attached them in a random fashion. I went over the center line of the paper and trimmed with scissors. I glued the trimmed off piece to the other side of the layout. 

I inked the edges of the phrase cut out from the sheet and attached with foam tape. I inked and attached the cogs and circle phrase that was punched out of the sheet with a 1 3/4 inch circle punch. No rules apply when using Subway Art theme; I added die cuts, brads, and lots and lots of phrases.

I even crossed the line with the phrase! It was very freeing to have no rules apply when scrapping.  

I hope you challenge yourself on your next never know what you'll create! Thanks for stopping by the blog today!

 Summer is nearly upon us and here, in Indiana, we have had some hot days. We usually spend our time at the local baseball diamond; cheering our favorite player...our son. In our home, like many others, summer means baseball! I'm so far behind in my scrapbooking; quick and easy has been my style lately :)

  • To begin my layout, I cut the arrow paper in Secret Garden and inked the edges with chalk ink and attached to blue cardstock. 
  • Next, I cut the red sheet from Secret Garden and glued to base page.

  • Using a stamp, I created four photo corners.
  • I used an exacto knife to cut the corners to allow for the photo to be held in place.
  • I stamped and quickly colored the images and then cut them out.

  • I cut the title from my Cricut and used chalk ink to edge each letter.
  • I layered die cuts and title.
  • I also cut individual arrows out of the paper and used foam tape to attach to the page.
  • The chalk inks are so great for use with inking the edges of cardstock as well as chipboard but they are also wonderful in covering the outline of the die cut!

The Secret Garden paper line is so much fun to use! You can use the paper for any theme.  Thanks so much for visiting the blog today!
