Amazing Adventures

Summer is quickly coming to an end which hopefully means our temperatures will cool down.  It’s been hot and in 10 days I’m going to be walking 30 miles for the Georgia 2 Day Breast Cancer Walk and really want the temps to cool down.  It is not fun walking when its 90 degrees outside.  By the way if you would like to donate to my walk you can sponsor me here on my walker fundraising page.

So did you have any amazing adventures this summer or maybe for fall break.  The schools around here are on fall break this week and many of my neighbors are at the beach one more time.  In my Stamper’s Club we have been making a scrapbook page every month and for September I created this fun Amazing Adventure Page for them. 

I wonder what amazing adventure photos everyone will add to this page. What would you put on here? My summer adventure included a whale watching trip in Alaska and that’s likely what I will be adding to this page.

I used my Stamparatus to stamp the Octupus.  Creating a template and then blanks so that everyone could easily line up the stamping.  I was able to ink and stamp a couple of times to make sure he was really dark.  It was like an octo-puzzle!

Friends Make the Season Shine

There are so many beautiful samples in the Holiday Catalog.  For my card for Stamper’s Club this month I decided to case the catalog.  We used the Making Christmas Bright stamp set and I created a modified version of the card on page 6.  The sample is a smaller square card and the card I made is a full size card.

This card is the same colors and layout as the one in the catalog.  I did not use any sequins only the Real Red Mixed Satin Ribbon.  The polka dot print is from the All is Bright Designer Series Paper.  We stamped the greeting on Whisper White and the catalog sample is stamped on one of the pieces from the paper pack. The end of the little bulb is also different – we stamped in Gray Granite and punched it out.  I also added an inside layer of white that has the hanging stars stamped in the corner.

Supply List

  • Making Christmas Bright Bundle (stamp set and Christmas Bulb punch)
  • Call Me Clover card stock
  • Whisper White card stock
  • All is Bright Designer Series paper
  • Real Red Mixed Satin Ribbon
  • Call Me Clover ink
  • Crushed Curry ink
  • Gray Granite ink

Here is a look at page 6 from the Holiday catalog – you can see the card that I cased.l

If you need some quick inspiration be sure to look at the samples in the catalogs and use them as a starting point for your creations.

Country Lane Thank You

There are two unique things about this card – first it is square and second there is NO stamping!  That’s right I have a card today with no stamping on it.  It doesn’t happen often but it does happen.  One of the things I love in the new annual catalog is the Thank You Thinlits die – it’s a single die that says Thank You.  It does have a coordinating stamp set that creates a bundle option for you but the die works on its own and makes an easy no stamping card.

I used the new Country Lane Designer Series Paper from the Holiday Catalog that just went live.  One of the coordinating colors in the paper is Cajun Craze so the thank you was cut from that.  In order to maximize the beautiful paper each 12 x 12 sheet was cut into 4″ squares – that gives you 9 pieces from one sheet.  Since I had square pieces for my paper layer I decided to stick with a square card – cutting my Mint Macaron base to be 8-1/2″ by 8-1/2″ and score it at 4-1/4″ – the spine could be either at the top like I have it here or on the left side for a side opening card.   I used bits of my mini dimensionals to add the thank you to the front of the card and finished with a little piece of Linen Thread tied around it in a bow.

Supply List

  • Thank You Thinlits
  • Country Lane Designer Series Paper
  • Mint Macaron card stock
  • Cajun Craze card stock
  • Linen Thread
  • Mini Dimesionals
  • Big Shot Die Cutting Machine

You could make a custom sized envelope with the Envelope Punch Board but I just stick mine in our Medium Sized Envelopes.  This is a quick and easy card to make a stack of.  Do you make very many card with no stamping on them?

Thanks for stopping by!
