Stamp Sets for Club

Hi everyone,
Ladies in club look at the next post to see the layouts.

However, I wanted to show you the stamp sets we will be using for club as well.  

Below is the DOUBLE stamp set you can get for only $5.00.    You will need to purchase only $35.00 in CTMH products to get this stamp set which is valued at $36.00!

In addition, we will use this Buttons, Bits and Bobs Flair stamp set.   All the buttons were cut with the new Artiste cartridge which makes it simple.

Club layouts

Hi everyone!
Below is the layout we are doing for September.  It comes from the Make It From the Heart book which gives you ideas for layouts and cards.   I love this layout because if you flip it around you have a totally different layout.   Therefore, your options for pictures are endless.

On the first layout I used (2) 5W x 3 H and (1) 4W x 6H.

Look at the two blue buttons on the bottom - we will be using the new button stamp set from the catalog.
If you look closely below you will see "life is good" which was from our special stamp set this month.   

On the next layout, I flipped the layout and look how different it is!    I used 1 - 4 x 6W and (3) 5H x 3W pictures.
Left side:  Notice the button on the left and the "awesome" which is from the special stamp set you can purchase.

Beginning of summer/end of summer

Hi everyone,
Labor Day usually marks the end of summer so I thought I would do a layout that speaks to the beginning of summer.    Our summer began with strawberry picking at Barthel's in Mequon.   I can almost taste the strawberries now.   

The layout is from our new "Make It from Your Heart" how-to book.    I, of course, adapted it to fit my needs.    It highlights all new artwork, technique ideas, color palettes in one easy reference.   Best of all it is only $7.95!!!

Much of today's trends is not using every square inch of your 12 x 12 layout so I thought I would give it a try.    I also did not matte my pictures which tends to be a trend I always do.    

Okay, now that I posted this I just realized I stamped the wrong year!!!!!!    Nothing an embellishment can't fix.    I used our banner alphabet on the left and our journal tags underneath a picture.    Clean and simple!

Now off to change the year!
