August Club Projects...

Two weeks ago...we had our club day. Took me awhile to get these posted...but wanted to share our club projects that we made this month. First up is this card...I made this card for one of the card swaps I was in at Convention this year. I loved it so much I wanted my club gals to make it too! So we went for it! :) I LOVE this technique. I took a piece of Designer Series Paper from the Elegant Soiree collection and ran it through my Big Shot with an embossing folder. Then just took a Sanding Block and went to town sanding down the design...and the white from the paper core shows through making it all pop!!! Here is a bit more of a close-up...
The "you are awesome" sentiment is from the "FYI" stamp set that I LOVE! And OF COURSE had to add some self-adhesive rhinestones!!! LOVE those things!!!!
And then just did a little punched border, some Very Vanilla taffeta ribbon, and another piece of Elegant Soiree Designer Series Paper. Oh...and I stamped the background in Crumb Cake ink on Crumb Cake cardstock...and it's the "Pretty Pattern" background stamp. So colors are Baja Breeze, Soft Suede, Very Vanilla, and Crumb Cake.
Next up is this fun project using the Matchbox Die...
Where is the matchbox die, you ask?! Well...un-tie the ribbon and open it up...
We cut out two of just the DRAWER part of the matchbox die. We did NOT cut out the folder part that the drawer slides into because we made our own. I thought this was so much fun and you could make this as long as you want by just adding more matchbox drawer parts!!!

I used the Greenhouse Gala Designer Series Paper in these two patterns...Here is a close-up of the top...
And a bit of a side view...
Since we did this so long ago...I really don't remember the measurements. But it was really easy to make. Just put the two matchbox drawer parts together and measured them. Then just figured out the measurements from there.
Hope you enjoy! Thanks for visiting...if anyone still does! :)
