December Club Members Projects

A huge THANK YOU!!! to all my club members these last couple of months during my move. Who knew that moving one point one miles would be so hard. We still aren't even fully done after two months of moving so far. But we do have all the important things like the main living areas, all the kids stuff and most importantly all my stamping stuff.

It is great being inside instead of out in my garage studio but now I have more 2 year old help than I can handle sometimes so I am sure that Ben will be appearing in my videos soon.

Here is the Club Projects for my Club Members for December 2011.

I hope you enjoy the Holiday Season. I can't wait until you ladies see the products in the Occasions Mini & the Sale-A-Bration mini. Happy Stamping!!! Jen

I will add something to it later this week & post a new photo with some stamped images on it. It is just really hard to have her do the stamping by herself right now (she is only 5, it's either too hard or too soft)

  • Spiderweb Embossing Folder #120889
  • Big Shot # 113439

Pin Wheel Birthday!!!

This card is made with the retiring Celebrations DSP & the new hostess set Happiest Birthday Wishes.

To create the pin wheel you use a 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" piece of DSP. Line the opposite corners up in the track of your paper cutter and cut down at an angle 1 1/2" on all four corners. With the paper piercing tool poke a hole in the end edge of one of the flaps on all corners (same flap on each corner, ie left or right side). Fold & line holes up and place a brad in the center. (this is the tricky part and takes some time)

Details for creating this card:
5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Natural Ivory CS - scored at 4 1/4"
4 1/4" 1 1/2" DSP & 4 1/4" x 1" DSP & 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" DSP
Dotted Scallop Ribbon Punch of extra DSP (for pinwheel pole)
Happiest Birthday Wishes - new Hostess Stamp set.

Stamp of the Month Class - May

For this month's Stamp of the Month class the stamp set we used was Flower Feast from the Summer Mini catalog. The bonus this month was that there were 6 different designs so no card was doubled. Here are all 6 cards that were made in one 2 hour class.

Thanks, Jen
