Punch Bunny Club Projects

I know Easter is over but I have so many things to share with you and not enough time! LOL These little Bunnies were so much fun to put together! The Page was one that my Scrapbook Club friends did last month and the card was a matching one that the Stamping Club did! Scrappers can use this anytime of the year when they get to scrapin their Easter pics! To make these bunnies you will need the following punches: Lg. Oval, Sm. Oval, 1 3/8 in circle, 1/2 in circle &Trio Flower. I used the 1/4 in circle for the nose and eyes by now realized it is retired (oops..missed that!) Post in the comments if you need other suggestions for the nose and eyes. We also used the Basic Black stampin' write marker for the whiskers and details on the feet and the white gel pen for the highlights in the eyes and on the flower! On the Scrapbook page I used the Wide Oval punch and then stamped images from "A Good Egg" Stamp set for detials on the egg. This punch bunny is not my orignal idea.. there are so many creative demos out there that share their wonderful ideas! It is great to be a demonstrator for that alone!

Head on over to my online store to purchase these great punches! Click Shop Now..
***Purchase $35 or more in my online store or by e-mailing me during the month of April & purchase at least one punch and I will mail you the bunny card and pieces to make one extra bunny for another card or scrapbook page! Don't forget to check out the Clearance section while you're there! There are lots of accessories in returning colors there!

Later this week I will share the one I made for my 2 yr old daughter Shelby. She loves her scrapbook and asks to look at it all the time! I have pictures of her, events, family & friends in there.

Scrapbooking & Stampin Club club starting March

A few of you have asked for more information on my local clubs and it is below. New clubs are forming in March and have limited spots available....send me an e-mail @ for more information & questions!

**I am also considering a long distance club where you would get projects shipped to you each month and you would have a minimum order as your fee you would place on line. Please email me if interested in that.

Currently I have 3 clubs that meet each month:
Scrapbooking club: make (2) 12x12 pages each month and only "cost" is a minimum $15 order placed that month.
Mom & Me Scrapbooking Club: Moms/Adults make (2) 12x12 pages each month & the child makes 4 matching 6x6 pages. "Cost" is a minimum $25 order,
Stamping Club: make 3 cards and one 3-D/Big Shot project each month. Cost is $15 minimum order.
**Clubs meet all on the same day so you can make cards one month and Scrapbooks another! makes no difference!
Best of all these ladies get new ideas each month, have 48 scrapbook pages completed at the end of the club, get Hostess benefits with out hosting a party, Specials and Freebies each month, New Friendships, builds the stamping/scrapbooking supplies with out breaking the bank and they have something they have to look forward to each month!
You seen what the scrapbookers made this month now here is what the stamping club made!
Card matches the scrapbook pages from this month using the FREE Happy Moments Sale-A-Bration Set and the Free Sale-A-Bration edge punch. Simple and cute!
Coordinated with the scrapbook pages from this month using the new Sending Love Specialty paper from the new mini catalog and the Free Sale-A-Bration set Whimsical Words, which fits in the Full Heart Punch perfect!
Cute owl card was cased from another demonstrator but I failed to take note of who so if it looks familiar let me know! Cute, Cute set from the Occasions Mini called Fox & Friends and used the scalloped square big shot die for the scalloped border. card also used some designer paper from the (yep, you guessed it) the Sale-A-Bration catalog called Welcome Neighbor designer series pad and yep it is free..all 72 6x6 sheets! whoo hoo!
This is my favorite...LOVE the Boxes #2 big Shot die...take a 6x12 sheet of cardstock, run it through the big shot and out comes the perfect box! One little strip of sticky strip on the side and it all folds together on the scored lines and wallah, a super cute box! I used the lg oval punch and acetate sheet for the "window".

Scrapbooking & Stampin Club projects for January!

Well here I am...sorry for the delay. I had some Internet problems! Some of my favorite stampers came over on Sunday & Monday for our monthly "club"meeting. These are a few of the projects we made. Before you go any further I should explain how I do my Scrapbook pages for my clubs. I design them not knowing what pictures I or my club members might put on these pages, I try to keep the pages as wide open as possible, so that we can put as many pictures as we possibly can on each page. If you don't have a bunch of photos for the page, no worries either use a large size photo and jornaling or mementos of an event!

These pages use the FREE set called Happy Moments from the Sale-A-Bration catalog! I love these presents, they have 2 of my favorites, polka-dots & stripes! I used the color combination of So Saffron, Taken with Teal, Ch. Chip, Old Olive & Rose Red. I am not very good at color combinations so I often take a look in the section of the Idea Book & Catalog. Every Designer Paper now list the colors in the pack, so I know that if Stampin Up! Says they look good together I am good!! LOL This color combo came from the Sweet Pea Designer paper in the new Occasions Mini Catalog!

These pages use the new Sending Love Specialty Designer paper from the Occasions Mini Catalog along with the new Epoxy Brads! OHHHH...I am in love with both! When use this paper you do not need much else because it is sooo beautiful. It has glittery designs on on side of All the papers in the pack. i can not tell you enough good things about it. I think over 1/2 the ladies from the scrapbooking club ordered, and I know one ordered 2 packs! I used the 1 3/4 in, 1 3/8 in & 1 in circle punches to create the paper rosette. We then used a new Real Red Epoxy Brad in the center. These Rosette are beautiful and so easy to make. Perfect thing to use your scraps for!

The 6x6 pages featured here are what the girls made from the Mom & Me Scrapbooking Club I have. They used the cute little monkey from the new Ocassions Mini set called Fox & Friends along with the full heart punch and scalloped square punches.
