Club Scrap October Literature Kit

Good Morning Everyone!

The Literature Kit from Club Scrap is a stunning kit packed with papers, ribbon, embellishments & stamps. Be sure to order yours now. You won't be disappointed.

I got to play with my new cutting machine. I diecut my star and then scanned it in the machine so I could be able to cut to the size I want.  I wanted the star with the cut outs inside to use as a window to show the gorgeous patterened paper beneath.  I diecut the sentiment from the cutapart.  Below you will see a closeup of a paper wreath I made with the patterned paper to create a unique element.  I saw this on facebook.  Just cut 5-6 strips 1-2mm wide to the desired length.  Crumple the strips and then twist them together and then shape while twisted into a circle.

Thanks for stopping by.  Be sure to check out the Club Scrap Blog for lots of ideas and techniques.

Club Scrap October Literature Kit Blog Hop

Good Morning Everyone!

Welcome to the Club Scrap Literature Blog Hop. If you came from Anne Marie's Blog then you came from the right place.  If you didn't you can start at the beginning with Karen at Club Scrap's Blog.

This style pop up card is everywhere right now. It's circulating within the scrapbooking community. Artist Team member Hetty first did it a few weeks back. She inspired me to do one of my own. Here is the tutorial. It is actually much easier than it looks.

All product used was from the Literature Kit with the exception of the inside card background. That cork paper is from the Literature Digital Kit. The band is made with the cutapart and the brown shimmer paper is diecut with the butterfly from Elizabeth Craft Designs.

I hope you enjoyed this easy Pop Up using the Literature Kit.  Now to continue the fun head on over to Lisa's Blog.

Club Scrap October Artist Team Challenge with Literature Kit

Hi Everyone,

Are you ready for an awesome Artist Team Challenge Blog Hop with Club Scrap Literature Kit!  With the Holidays coming up the theme is Gift Giving. First things first if you came from Lisa's Blog you came from the right place.  If you didn't you can start at the beginning with Karen at Club Scrap's Blog.  I decided to create a project that will hold cards to give as a gift.  My gift folder holds minimum 4 cards layered with embellishments including envelopes.  Below you will see the steps to recreating the gift folder as well as the cards I made.  I apologize in advance it will be a slightly long post.

The cover is plain cardstock. 

Turn over cover and set aside.
Cut 2 solid paper 5 1/4 x 6 (front & side of cover), 1 solid paper 3/4 x 5 3/4 (spine of cover).
Cut 2 patterned paper 5 x 5 3/4 (front & side of cover), 1 patterned paper 1/2 x 5 1/2 (spine of cover). Matte solid pieces with pattern pieces on top. Only adhere the spine to the cover. Add some adhesive to the center of spine and center of front & back of cover. Add the ribbon. Adhere paper to front and back covering the ribbon.  See picture below for visual. 

The folder pouches are cut on patterned paper. You need to cut and score 2 pieces as below. 

The next step is to cut where I indicated the lines in red.

It should look like this after cutting. 

Now turn over and place double sided adhesive as picture below. 

Peel off the protective strips and starting with the small square bring it inwards following the sides. Take the bottom and fold on top. When assembled it should look like photo below. Adhere to inside of cover at the bottom.

Here is the folder with the cards inside. 

Here are the 4 cards I made for the Gift Folder. They were made with the Literature Kit.  I printed the pattern on solid white cardstock. They are all 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 folded.  

A Shaker card.  I will have instructions on an upcoming post how to make one.

I hope you enjoyed this easy Gift Card Holder which makes a wonderful gift.  Thanks for stopping by.  Your next stop is Anne Marie's Blog.
