January Club Projects


Happy Friday, peeps!  We are waiting for some snow to arrive….it’s certainly been cold enough, maybe TOO cold?  Anyway, I thought I would show you the club projects my hostesses made this month featuring some spring mini products:


This is actually a very simple card; we ran the Core’dinations Primrose Petals card through the Honeycomb EF and sanded it for a vintage look.  I used a sanding block from my husband’s shop, and a lint roller to clean up the little “shavings”!!  Worked like a charm!  The Collage Curios stamp set gave us a chance to practice with the Stamp-a-Ma-Jig as well as use those cute little Soda Pop Tops!  A doily cut in half adorns the top!


Our second project uses Oh, Whale! with the coordinating clear Sizzlets die as well as the Cloudy Day EF and Sunshine & Sprinkles DP:


And did you know that you can cut three layers of DP in one pass of the Big Shot?  We cut little squares of the polka-dotted Patterns paper, stacked them one on top of each other and cut out the little fishies!  Cute!

And finally, here is the gift I gave my hostesses:  a tin filled with little goodies, covered in Sunshine & Sprinkles DP and adorned with the flower from Decorate a Daisy, a leaf cut with the Autumn Accents Bigz Die (still available!!!) and a little pop top adorned with a lady bug from Itty Bitties:



These bright cheery colors remind me that despite our dreary skies, spring will be coming!  If you have any questions about anything shown here, just shoot me an email!

Cassidy found a box big enough to play in:





jumping and sitting!

Sometimes the simplest of things can create so much fun. A fun! Makes me want to jump right in there with her;)
Beautiful club cards this month. I'm liking what I see of the Homeycomb EF and sanded like this it's really pretty. Fun little pop top too.
The tin you made is gorgeous. I'll bet everyone was thrilled to receive them. Love the paper and love the flower. I agree these cheery colours are definitely a reminder that WILL come.

Your projects are wonderful - love those colors! And one of my favorite books of all time to read to my kids is Christina Katerina and the Box by Patricia Lee Gauch - gotta read it to Cassidy!

It's lovely to see what you've been up to with your new stash from the spring/summer mini LeAnne! Our snow is on its way out so these fresh spring-like colours are a breath of fresh air - I particularly like the top card with the soda pop top embellishment and that wonderful embossing folder. Thanks for your lovely comment! Vicky x
