April 2016 Club Projects "Regatta"

I'm having fun sharing this awesome REGATTA Workshops Your Way Kit from Close To My Heart.  It's so versatile and bright!

This is the first of two layouts we are creating this month in all of my scrapbook clubs.  This is our easy layout...takes less than 10 minutes to assemble.  The top blue piece is a sheet of B&T with the zip strip on top kept intact, not cut off.  Always a great start for a border and instant color.

Close up of the left page accent/possible title.  The pink rose paper is actually a 4x6 Picture My Life card that comes in the kit, followed by a layered strip of Flaxen cardstock, a large circle sticker and a small Kraft flower to finish it off.  Easy - just product layering, and ALL of that comes in the $26.95 kit.  WOW!

Right layout page

Close-up of the cute accent in the bottom corner.  Sometimes a simple layout can be pulled together simply by adding a cute focal point.  This was created by cutting a strip of Flaxen cardstock and cutting a faux-ribbon edge along it, then topping it with two Kraft flowers, a Kraft sentiment, and a bow (all included in the kit).

This is the second layout we are creating.  Sorry for the glare of the page protector - it looks a tiny bit like the shadow of Yoda, but I promise he wasn't here.  LOL!

My favorite part of this page is the Flip Flap title piece!  Simply add a 4x6 FLIP FLAP directly to the front of your page protector and slip in one of our awesome 4x6 PML cards included in the kit for an instant title.  This also gives you more room for photos, as you can fit two more below the flip flap.  One package of 4x6 Flip Flaps is only $3.95 and you get 15...yes, 15 (what a great deal!). This is one of my top five favorite products from Close To My Heart, and EVERY scrapbooker needs to have these in their possession. 

Right layout page - so simple, simply cut a 12x12 piece of paper in half at 6" and place it in the center of your page, then add zip strips (included on every sheet of B&T paper) above and below for cute and easy borders.  I used THREE zip strips on this layout.

A really love this page accent...start with a 3x4 small PML card from the kit and mount it on coordinating Flaxen cardstock.  Tie a cute ribbon along the top edge, and finish off by adding another 1/2" strip of cardstock below it, with a sticker and two puffies.  So cute, so easy, but adds a big punch to the layout.  :)

This is the layout completed with pictures.  Although the kit name is "Regatta", which leads you to think about sailing, ships, water, etc., it's more versatile than that.  I used it to do my oldest son's Eagle Scout Ceremony and it works perfectly.  I included a picture below with the flip flaps closed and then opened, to show you how many extra pictures you could add.  For the right layout page, I actually added TWO flip flaps stacked on top of each other to double the space.  This layout has 11 photos on it with all the flip flaps.

 Oh goodness.
I've found my new card addiction.  LOL!
This folding pop-out card is SO stinkin' cute but so easy to create.  Be watching for a video coming soon on how to assemble this.  So easy, just two score lines!

Here's the folding pop-out card open so you can see the inside.  Seriously, how adorable is this card?  Great thing is it looks like a WOW card (and it is!) but it's actually really easy to create.   

Time to join one of my local clubs if you want to be creating CUTE projects like these every month!  :)  Contact me!

  1. Where did you get the instructions for the pop up card you made. I really like it. I searched but could not find this one.
