May Club

Happy May everyone!
I wish I could say the weather matched the month.  For club this month we are focusing on a few techniques/products.   We will be using the new Paper Fundamentals Basics Assortment paper.  (p. 126 of the idea book).   One side is a glossy resist pattern and the other side a design that is not glossy that coordinates with it.    They are in earth tones and everyone will need one sheet (I will provide).   Since, they are in the earth tones, you may want to think about what pictures you are wanting to bring.   We will also use the cricut philosophy cartridge to cut out 6" and 3" circles.  In addition, washi tape of course and baker's twine.    You will need 2 - 4" x 6H" pictures, 2 - 4 x 5W pictures and 2 - 3 x 4H pictures or 1 - 4 x 6W picture.     You can see the layouts below.  (Remember you can click on the layout to see a larger version of it).  

In the above layout I used the circle and turned it into a baseball.

You will notice the bakers twine around the far left picture and the washi tape on top right.   Also the basic fundamentals paper is the gray and the dark gray is the glossy side. 

On the far right, instead of a picture, I used an autograph cut out of a box.   I also used washi tape to adhere the bottom left picture and put the 3" circle under the picture.  
On this layout I used the brown basic fundamentals paper.   I also stamped tone-on-tone for the circles.

On this layout (left side) instead of a picture on the lower right I used a tag from the dance studio.   I also used the embossed side as the larger piece and the pattern side as the 1/2" trim.  I had lots of fun with these layouts and they go together pretty quickly once you have our colors figured out. 

See you soon!
