March Club Projects

I sure hope this nice weather continues! I love Spring and I can feel it in the air. Did you remember to turn your clocks back? I forgot a couple and it took me a while to realize why I was “losing track of time today”.

I had a nice day yesterday with my March club and some new friends who visited the class to try it out. I will repeat the same projects for my group  tomorrow night, I’ll be sure to take pictures of their finished projects and will post them later. Above you will see my four projects I prepared for my club girls. Two cards featuring our fun new set called “Spring Sampler”. I was thrilled when Stampin’ Up offered us a birthday discount earlier this year, I applied my birthday discount and my demonstrator discount and got this set for more than 50% off.  Love making cards, tags, and even decorating envelopes with these cute little guys.

Here are Amye’s version of the projects. I love to let my customers have freedom in creating their cards. Just like when I was a special education preschool teacher and we told the child to just create whatever they felt like, I want my customers to feel that it is okay to think outside the box… they are always welcome to my scrap bin, and my markers and stamp pads are close by, so everyone was able to create cards that meet their needs and creativity.

I believe these are Mary’s projects. It’s hard to remember the day after… if I’m wrong, someone correct me please! Can you see how adorable the new cloud folder looks on the whisper white card stock? And you might be wondering about the post-it note holder. It is a 4×6 acrylic frame that I just rotated on it’s back side. That way you can truly jot down notes the way it is elevated. Sticky strip holds the post it note pad to the outside of the acrylic holder. We slipped a piece of designer series paper 4×6 inside. The cute little flowers are made with one single flower from our new flower trim. (At leadership when Shelli said there were 100 flowers in the package, I had to count mine, hard to believe but it’s true, you get 100 flowers in that package). To make the flower a little bigger, but not obstuct the pretty paper (or hey- a wallet size photo would fit in the space very nicely), I folded the piece of crepe paper (another bargain from the spring catalog), folded it in half- it is the only time you can punch two things at the same time. It actually is a breeze to punch if you’ve folded it so the smoother (waxier) side is on the outside, you’ll need four scallops and you’ll spritz them all (4 scallops and the flower trim) with our wonderful spritzer tool (6 drops of reinker and then fill tube with rubbing alcohol- here is Pretty in Pink, you will see some flowers by the others that was made with Marina Mist reinkers). {be sure you spritz on spare paper… it will dry quickly if you use the rubbing alcohol}.  After they are dry, crumble them, open them up, stack them together, punch a hole in the middle, place a tiny brad to hold the 4 scallops together. Adhere the flower on top of the brad with green glue. Mount on top of the acrylic frame with sticky strip.

These are the projects made by Sariah. She used the new photopolymer stamp set to create a great saying on her post-it note holder that says “Notes” inside the little word cloud. She needed a birthday card, so instead of Happy Easter, she changed out the sentiment.

This set was made by Jean, Sheila’s mother, didn’t she do a great job? First time at a Stampin’ Up class, she really did a great job.

Notice how Sheila added pearls on her butterflies? Nice touch, don’t you think?

Well, I’m sorry but I didn’t successfully upload Patty and Margie’s projects. Although I think I’m pretty computer literate, my PC is not working, so I’m trying to do all this blogging from my iPad. Sorry, I’ll try again when I post the other’s photos.

Let me know if you have any questions about the March club projects. What is a club you wonder? I started my first clubs up last July-December. I re-started the clubs in January and they’ll run through June. There are 6 people in each club who made a committment to order $25 per month (before tax/shipping/handling) minimum each month from me. The clubs  occur in my home, but I rotate who is the hostess among the club members. The hostess brings a snack and receives the hostess credit for that month. I’m always happy to start a new club with you and your friends/family, just contact me if you need more information.

Well, that’s it for tonight. That lost hour of sleep is making me sleepy…. until tomorrow, happy stamping!
