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!!

November ShoeBoxCards!!

Well Hello everyone!!

Whew!  Time can sure fly!!  It's been a busy month already... and it's time to catch up!!

We had a grand time at VCBC in November!!  And I highly recommend that you attend one of their AMAZING events!!

So back in the first week of November we had Shoe Box Cards!!  there were some great and Amazing card Creations!!  

So here they are!!

This is my card and it uses leaves cut from the Artbooking cartridge... (1.5 inches page 72). This card also features Fern thick twine that has knots tied and then used the piercing tool to fray the edges and used the stapler for easy application.  Then use the other side to create veins on the leaves.  The stamp set was from the September constant campaign, but there is another stamp set "For Family" that has a similar Hello and some great words too!!

Thanks to Lisa, I'm in Haven for the inspiration!!

Anita aka Over Achiever, helped us to create the wonderful wreath!  and we could use it as an ornament or as a magnet!  Love the little stickles to make the berries.. we stamped the pine baugh.  This wreath used 3x3 squares... 4 B&T and 4 white.

And here's card #2 for Anita!! We stamped the leaves... then smudged it with a sponge and then trimmed them at one inch.  We glued the tops only, then weaved the ribbon through.  This was built on a 4.25x5.50 piece of cardstock and then adhered to another card!!  We also made acorns!!

Julie's Terrific turkey card was super fun and she had all the pieces parts and we just had to assemble!  Love this guy!!  And it's an easel card!! 

Lori's card was a quickie but a good one... Love the brick texture!!  The Goose was stamped on the inside!  Love the masculine feel to this card!!

Melani's fun festive fall card features faux leaves!  What fun!  We added some sponging and some raffia and a greeting!   

So love our card nights!!  thank you all for being willing to share your talents and materials with us!  Our next Shoebox card night will be Tuesday Dec 1st!!

See ya then!!

Layout #2 was inspired by Lynn Como and I loved using the Kraft cardstock to create this "Family Tree" layout!! 

Layout #3 was inspired by Chris Robertson!  It's just a fabulous layout!!  Everything is sponged with Champagne ink and the Poppy thick twine was stapled with the mini stapler!!  This made it so much easier to add the twine to the photo matts!

Layout #4 is another inspired layout from Lynn Como!  This is a quick layout and adding a touch of gold shimmer trim adds a punch of brightness!!

This class will be on Tuesday November 10th!  Right after VCBC!!  

And here is the Hostess Club Layout we will be doing!!  It was inspired by Jacquelin Green!  I loved softening the edges with a corner rounder!!

Be sure to check back after the 10th to see the guest's creative take on this layout!!
