October club

Nothing like waiting till the last minute... My club meets tomorrow night or Saturday morning (thier choice) and here are the projects they can choose from (they choose to make the layout or the cards... it's up to them)

The layout: I love this layout! Colors: Desert Sand, Vineyard Berry, Indian Corn Blue and Olive. There's no title- the layout would work for lots of fall events and this way they can create a title that reflects the photos.

The leaves are stamped using the Autumn Splendor stamp set in the same color ink as the paper (Olive, Desert Sand and V. Berry). Embellishments include Colonial White ric rac and buttons from the Holiday and Basic Collections.
Some of the Vineyard Berry cardstock was scored and sponged along the score lines with Desert Sand. Desert Sand was also used to ink distress most of the paper.

I'm really excited about the cards as well this month. We're using some fun colors and products.

The group had requested sympathy and get well cards so this month we're making one sympathy card and I'll add some more into the mix over the next few months.

Colors: Black, Grey Wool, Colonial White and Blush.
Stamps: Butterfly Kiss and Comforting Thoughts... Just a simple card as you'd expect for a sympathy card. The ribbon is from the Colonial White Ribbon Collection.

The second card was obviously made while I had all the supplies out for the layout.

The only addition is the "Thinking of you" from Rustic Flowers stamp set.

And lastly, a Christmas card. I'd actually designed this card for the Fall Stamp and Scrap I co-hosted in September, but I loved the card so much that I thought we'd make it at club as well. I haven't cut the paper for this one yet so the green pattern may be slightly different- not sure if I have enough of that one or not. The stamp set is from the new Autumn/ Winter book and is called "Stocking Style". The glittery brads are homemade by mixing prisma glitter with Cranberry embossing powder and embossing the color onto pewter brads. It's hard to tell but the stocking "cuff" is fun flocked for a velvety feel.

Hope you enjoyed seeing all of these projects as much as I enjoyed making them!

Love your creations - great colors on the LO especially! I'm like you - if it weren't for the last minute, I wouldn't get anything done ;-)
