December Hostess Club

We had fun getting together before Christmas and here's our layout!!

This lovely layout was inspired by Liz Johnson and can easily be embellished with the complements that come with this kit!

Here's what my clients created!!

Here's Dulce's layout!  I think she's ready for spring!!

Here's Theresa's layout!!  She's working on her son's album!!  

and somehow, I missed Pam's layout... Hopefully she will bring it back so that can be fixed!

Our next hostess club, Kathy is hostess and will be Tuesday January 12th and the doors open at 5:00 pm.

See you soon!


White Pines layouts

Hi everyone!!

Here are the layouts that we created for the White Pines WOTG and Hostess Club

Here's the first layout.  This was the hostess club layout and uses the White Pines B&T paper.  It was inspired by Liz Johnson's amazing layout.  She also added the complements on her layout and it is so cute!!  Because this is the hostess club layout, it does not use the complements... but feel free to add them

This layout is based on the corporate layout!  
We added berries with punches 
and 1/2 inch circles cut from the cricut cartridge.

This amazing layout was inspired by Julie Carriere... 
Love the blues and browns.  
The snowflakes are cut from the Artistry cartridge.

This last layout was inspired by Dana Kessler 
and is just plain fun!! It has lots of room for photos!!

Hope you enjoyed these lovely layouts!!  I wasn't fond of this kit at first, but after working with it, I have really grown to love it and hope you have too!!

Happy Scrappy!!

December Shoebox Cards

Hi Everyone!!

Can you believe it's December 1st already?  

We were a smallish group tonight... but we had fun!!  And Melani made Butterfinger candy out of peanut butter and candy corn... It was delightful!!

We missed Anita and Lori, but hope they will join us on Tuesday December 15th for a little get together we are having!! 

Details... for Tuesday December 15th:

Bring a goodie to share
Bring a completed card for everyone attending (between 7-10)
Bring a hand made gift for an exchange!! 

Sounds like fun!!

Ok... so here's our creations for tonight:

I love the embossing folders and have wanted to use this one.. .looks like snow cascading down!  The trees are cut from the Artistry Cricut and I used turquoise glitter paper for the tree behind.  This lovely card was inspired by Lisa Stenz!

This is Julie's lovely card... and I just couldn't do it justice... it really is a lovely card with hanging ornaments and the bit of glitter really makes the red ornament pop!!  the star is created from foil wrap stolen from her hubby's stash!!  and it's self adhesive!! 

Kathy's creation features a handmade tatted ornament!  (it's adhered with fun washi tape for easy removal and adding to your own Christmas tree)  and love the fun pops of red to glam it up a bit!  Lovely ornament Kat!!

Melani had us going in circles with this fun ornament made out of circles.  We cut 2 inch strips of paper and punched out 7 1.5 inch circles... folded them in triangles and then started adhering them ... we started out with 5... then had to find another five by adding 2 or 3.  we used glue sticks and it turned out quite nicely!!  I remember my grandmother had one made of older Christmas cards.  

And the stockings were hung by the chimney with care... 

Roxxy's darling card features Christmas socks!  She has a punch for them (she has a punch for everything I think :)  and we had lots of choices for the tops and patches for the stockings!  it too some masterful punching to get Santa just right!  

Shannon's card sparkled with her fun Happy New Year theme and fun Washi Tape.  We stamped the corners and glasses... adding a bit of bubbly sparkle to ring in the new year!  Then we added the washi tape across the middle for a quick and festive card! 

Not only did Melani have us going in circles, she also made dessert... and then she delivered handmade soap for everyone as a sweet gift!  How thoughtful of you Miss Melani!!

So this is the last Shoebox Card group for this year!  Our next official meeting will be Tuesday January 5th at 7:00 pm!!  

Also a special bonus get together will be held Tuesday Dec 15th at 7:00pm!  

See ya gals!  Have a Merry Christmas!!
