Club Projects for February

My stamp club meets today and tomorrow.  I have been trying all week to get my projects ready, prepped and posted- obviously the posting part is happening at the last minute and I just realized I missed taking a photo of the 3rd card.  That will have to wait as I'm still getting my house in order and have to go teach catechism this morning to my daughter's Kindergarten class.

For now... here are a few photos:
The layout is a zoo theme BUT by changing the title it would work on so much more.  The big grown square on the left page is meant for an 8x10, or 4- 4x5 or 2- 5x7 etc.  The long blue strip on the right page would hold 3 4x6 without any blue showing OR 3 4x5 leaving a one inch blue stripe down either side of the photos depending on where they were placed.  I like layouts where you have a choice on the number of photos you add... if you only have a few then you can blow one up to fill the left page... if you have a bunch- keep them smaller and fit them in.

My card makers are making 3 cards...all birthday.  Here is the first- the "Make a Wish" panel is popped with foam tape.

This card is "lifted" in theory from Lisa Stenz- I loved her idea of creating a cupcake from our new scallop punch.  I changed things up a bit by using our new pom pom ribbon as frosting and I also used some leftover Cherry-O paper on this one to try to use it up.

The 3rd card is missing... forgot to take a photo.  I'll post it later this week but it uses the February Stamp of the Month "Friendship" to create the 3rd b-day card.  Also uses the spray pen  that is new this month.
