Club Scrap October Artist Team Challenge

 Hello everyone, and welcome to Club Scraps October Artist Team Challenge! This month our challenge was to create something to give as a gift. I chose to do one of my Post-it Easel Notepads, these are so fun to give, and the recipient always seems to LOVE these.

Now you should have arrived from Lilian's Blog , however if you did not come from there, you might want to start at the beginning with Karen's Club Scrap blog that way you wont miss anything. All design paper, card stock, Stamps, and Ribbon used are from The Club Scrap Literature Kit.
 So for my Post -it notepad, I used the cricut to cut out the 2 card bases, then made an easel card out of both of them. Next I decorated the top part using the card stock, and design papers from the kit. They are popped up using foam tabs. I did distressing with Tim Holtz Distress inks.

Sentiments- I stamped them in distress ink, these are also the Literature Greeting stamps

Flowers were cut using the beautiful card stock shimmer that is in the kit. I LOVE all the design papers and colors in this months collection, they are absolutely Gorgeous!! I did use Cheery Lynn Medium Rose die to cut the flowers, and the centers are glitter brads

Ribbons- I chose to use the beautiful Plaid brown print, and the cream and red ribbons that came in the Literature Kit. LOVE them.

Leaves- these are moss green leave trim from RRR, I just hot glued it around the flowers.

Post - It is from my stash, as I keep plenty of these on hand :)

The corners were cut using the circle punch. Everything was distressed using the Vintage Photo distress ink.
Flowers were cut using Cheery Lynn Tea Rose Small. I all of them out using Red card stock from the Club Kit, and then the Bronze.

Welcome to "Really Reasonable Ribbon's" October Blog Hop!

If you arrived here from Judy's Blog  you are on the right track. If not , you will want to head back to the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog that way you don't miss out on any of the FABULOUS Designs from the Design Team today!
 I love the selection of ribbons in this months kit. On my Christmas Tins I used 5 of the ribbons on my 6 tins here. These are perfect for holding chocolate to give as little gifts for a table setting, or for giving to neighbors and friends for Christmas. These here will be auctioned off at our Doll Club meeting this Thursday :)
Todays Christmas tins are for holding yummy chocolate or treats.
I used the heart shaped tins from Martha Stewart, and i have had these forever it seems. Not only did I used Really Reasonable Ribbon, but I also used RRR Cherry Blossoms, Embellishments, and Bead Berry Spray Cluster gold. I did also use some of the Really Reasonable Ribbon Green Leaves
Hope you enjoyed my post for today! thank you for stopping by, and PLEASE let me know what you think of my Christmas tins for today :)
