November Scrapbook Club Layout

Nothing like leaving things until the last minute!  My Scrapbook Club is meeting tonight, and I just finished figuring out our layout!  The ladies fell in love with the layout on p. 35 of the Idea Book & Catalogue, so I tried to adapt it to make it more conducive to a club (i.e. affordable supplies and quantities!) and add a second page to it, and this is what I came up with.
 I love the combination of Crumb Cake, Certainly Celery, Wild Wasabi and Early Espresso!  I never would have thought to use them together, but it's really striking.  

Anyway, hopefully the ladies like it!

Blessings to you,

November Stamp Club Projects

I have found the cutest Christmas projects for this month's stamp clubs!  I will admit they are all CASEd because they are too adorable not to reproduce!
This gorgeous vintage Christmas card was created by Sherry Roth.  It uses the Deck the Halls designer paper, champagne glass glitter, tinsel, gold waffle paper (so many fun embellishments from the Holiday Mini Catalogue!). 

Kimberly Van Diepen (could she be any more talented!?) posted a fabulous tutorial on her blog about how to make these treat cone decorations, so I came up with a Christmas version using the Jolly Holiday designer series paper.
This cute Christmas card was on a display board at a Stampin' Up! event I attended, so I'm not sure who came up with it, but don't you love the little presents made with the petal card punch!?  I punched out the "gifts", then ran them through the Big Shot in the polka dot embossing folder.

The tree branches are the evergreen tree stamp from Lovely as a Tree (is there anything you can't use that stamp set for?).

I'm so looking forward to Stamp Club tonight and next week!  I have such lovely ladies in my clubs again this year!

Thanks for stopping by.

Blessings to you,
