I have a new tab at the top of my blog with a link to my craft space.  Go check it out for lots more photos and details on how I store and organize some of my products!  Here's a sneak peek...I have these saved on Pinterest too, if you want to find my board and add these pics to your boards too.  :)

April "Ivy Lane" Scrapbook Club Projects

I have no words to describe how much I LOVE LOVE, McLOVE this paper!  LOL!  It was so easy to work with, and would be great for vintage papers, Spring, Mothers' many options!  You'll notice that the scrapbook pages I create for club are very open...I rarely add photo mats, as I don't want to choose your photo sizes or placement for you.  With lots of wide open space, you can decide what you want to put on your layout, how big, and where.

Layout #1

Check out the adorable title embellishment on this layout!  Start by adding the stickease swirls, followed by the "Pure Joy" stamped accent from the Ivy Lane WOTG kit, Cricut-cut and stamped in Smokey Plum Ink and distressed with Desert Sand Ink, and finished off with a gorgeous fabric flower and purple glitter gems.  Don't tell anyone...I'm a tiny bit addicted to how gorgeous this is!

Take the tag stickease and stamp the flower from the stamp set in Smokey Plum, and also finish it off with a purple Glitter Gem.  So easy!

Layout #2

 A title can be so cute and so simple.  This one was created with the same packet of Stickease we used in the previous layout, with the addition of awesome Wood-grain Washi tape (don't get me started on Washi...I won't stop.  I LOVE IT!)

The last accent on the layout featuring Washi tape, stickease and glitter gems.  When you layer matching products, it's so easy to create a cute visual accent.

5-Minute Cards - for real, so easy!  White card bases (I buy the bulk pack because it's SO inexpensive and includes envelopes) then layer with cardstock and B&T pattern paper, and finish with more stickease and embellishments.  And guess what - we still had a lot of products left over even after creating four pages and two cards!  A great way to build your stash!

One of my club members chose different papers and stickease, and just plugged them into this month's layout.  Isn't it funny how a layout looks so different just by swapping the products used?

March "Balloon Ride" Scrapbook Club Projects

These products were ones I liked in the catalog, but LOVED when I got them and played with them in person.  The stunning chipboard (Dimensional Elements) were gorgeous, accented with amazing sparkles.  Great use of the zip strips attached to our papers, layered over cardstock for quick borders, with stamping along the edges to make the first layout one of a kind!  The second layout featured a 4x6 flip flap, one of my top 5 favorite products from CTMH!


February "ProPlayer" Scrapbook Club Project

 We only created one layout in February because club members got the opportunity to view the NEW Spring/Summer idea book, and touch and feel tons of new products.  So much fun to see all the fun products at once!

This is a fun layout for boys, and I especially love the oversized stamped tag, and corrugated embellishments and badge buttons!


Great job to Kim and Betsy, two club members who created the club layout but chose different papers.  Look how different they look by using the same pattern! 

January "Laughing Lola" Scrapbook Club Projects

Club members created two scrapbook layouts, complete and ready for photos and journaling, along with two cute cards!
