February Club Project...

Time to share the project we made at club this month!  It is a fun one!  I have seen lots of ideas online about using the FREE (with a $50 order) card kit in the Sale-A-Bration catalog for more than just making the cute cards.  I really liked this chocolate holder that I saw in my search!  So this is what we made for club...
How fun is this?!  It holds a regular sized Hershey's Chocolate Bar.  I am sure you could also fit a pack of Skittles or something like that in there if you know someone who is allergic to or doesn't like chocolate.  (Thank heavens I don't fall into either of those categories!  :-) )  Here are a few more photos...
So try this kit out...think outside the box...and see what you can come up with!!!  There were VERY few supplies I used that weren't already included in the kit.  I think just the ribbon on top to hold it together and the strips of Whisper White cardstock to make the sides of the box.

Thanks for visiting!  Hope you enjoy!

February Club Card...

Hey there!!!  So I have a few fun decor projects I made for Valentine's Day that I was going to show today.  However...I can't find the camera that I took those pictures with!  Ugh!  Hate when I can't find things!  So will have to show those even later after the holiday!  :)

HOWEVER...I do have a fun card to show you today!  It's based on a layout from the Spring Catalog.  (See if you can find it...it has hearts on it instead of butterflies.)  On to the card...

I hope you like it!  It's a quick and fun card to make.  I think the card has a big impact with the pops of the butterflies punched out from the fabulous Sale-A-Bration Designer Series Paper.  Too much fun!!!

Here are a few more pics...


Love that "Thanks" sentiment from the "Vintage Verses" Sale-A-Bration stamp set!  So much fun!  And the background is embossed with the Sale-A-Bration embossing folder.  Then sanded down to get the lighter color to show on the Core'dinations Pool Party Cardstock.  So much fun to use!

Hope you enjoy!  Thanks so much for visiting!!!!

January Club Card...

I am a bit late in posting the card we made in LAST MONTH'S club!!!  (Especially considering that tomorrow is my February club night!)  But better late than never, right?!  :-)  This card was a fun card to make.  But before I chat about it...how about you see it?!  Here is the card...

What a fun combination of a whole lot of products...right?!  My inspiration for this card came from one done by a very talented demo, Kimberly Van Diepen.  It was fun to add a bunch of fun new products (can you even count how many new products are used?!)  Talk about seeing the Occasions Mini put to good use!!!  I used new Designer Series Paper, Accessories (Doilies, ribbon, brads), Stamp Sets, Framelits, Embossing Folder, Core'dinations cardstock, etc!  I even used a couple Sale-A-Bration products!  (Get one FREE with every $50.00 in merchandise ordered!!!!)  I used the small Curly Label punch, Vintage Verses Stamp Set, and Pool Party ribbon.  Too much fun!!!

Here are a few close-up's...


I hope you enjoyed this card!  Thanks for stopping by my blog!!!
