February Club Projects

Well, here are the projects from last month's club!  I challenged my gals a bit and we did 3 cards and 1 3D project - and they did great! Everyone left on-time with a handful of beautiful cards!

First, we made 3 identically designed cards in 3 different monochrome schemes:  Baja Breeze, Rose Red and Pear Pizazz.  

The simple but very elegant design featured my favorite Sale-a-Bration set, "Bliss" as well as our new "Framed Tulips" embossing folder, the newest shades of the seam binding ribbon and the oh-so-versatile "First Edition" Designer Series Paper - all from the Occasions Mini Catalog!

If you want to get your hands on the free "Bliss" Stamp set (or any other Sale-a-Bration set, for that matter) you better hurry!  Sale-a-Bration ends March 31!  Just click here for more info or here to view the SAB brochure!

To color the DSP and add a beautiful shimmer, we used three custom Smooch colors I made before class in Baja Breeze, Rose Red, and Pear Pizazz.  They were a perfect match!  Click here to see my tutorial on how to create your very own custom Smooch colors!

Lastly, we made a quick and easy little treat box for St. Patrick's Day using the Bitty Box & Envelope XL Die for the Big Shot and the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder.  The stamp is the a-la-carte stamp "Lucky Shamrock" from the Occasions Mini.

When using embossing folders and dies together, you should cut your item with the die first, and then run it through with the embossing folder second. If the item doesn't fit completely in the embossing folder, that's OK!  Just run it through a section at a time, making sure (if possible) to put the edge of the embossing folder along a score line of your project.  If that is not possible, try to work with a simple pattern (like the polka dots   that is easy to match up.

This treat box is perfect for the mini Reese's peanut butter cups, because it fits four of them just right! 

For our little shamrocks on top, we just stamped the Lucky Shamrock stamp 4 times and punched only the shamrock out using the 1" circle punch.
