2nd January Club Meeting Samples

Here is the last set of January Club Samples. We used primarily items from the Occasions Mini and Sale-a-Bration Brochures.
This first project is a mini milk carton box. The best part is that the box is cut and scored from a new die in the Occasions Mini. The box is small enough that you can get two boxes from a single piece of cardstock.
This card is 99% copied from my up upline Julie P. It is simple and sweet. I only added the epoxy brad on the ribbon and used the new pink satin ribbon.
I wanted to use all the cute new valentine stuff, without making an actual valentine. I used the heartfelt thanks stamp to achieve this. I am so pleased that the embosslit heart layers perfectly with the full heart punch. I love the dots texture folder, it makes super deep impressions. The edge punch is adorable. It even has a matching corner punch, though I didn't use it in this project. Of course I used my favorite new Sending Love Designer paper. Time was short this month, so other than the greeting I fully cased this card from the Stampin' Connection.
This last card I also copied from the Stampin' Connection. I LOVED the colors and layout of this card. I also loved the use of the new Sweet Pea Designer Paper used in the background. The "F" is embossed on Rose Red cardstock and cut out.

January Stamp Club Samples

All three of my clubs met in January. The groups that were supposed to meet in December pushed their meetings back to January. I will post the samples for the groups today and tomorrow. My next club starts in February. We have enough to start but can add if anyone is interested. Let me know if you need more information.

This first card is done with all new products from the Occasions Mini Catalog including the Scalloped Heart Embosslit, New Border Punch (from SAB) Red Satin Ribbon and Sending Love Paper Designer Paper and Small Heart Punch. I love how the embosslit cuts and textures the cardstock at the same time.
This next project was a fun Coaster Box made with the Sending Love Designer paper, chipboard heart, corduroy button, epoxy brad inks and paper. The ribbon was laced between the coasters to hold them together. A simple, yet fun project. We glued the bottom piece on.
This last card is a card I copied from SCS- thank you original artist email me if it's you. We used the new neighborhood set from the SAB brochure. I loved the layout and the colors used.
