Club Scrap Lagoon Blog Hop

Hello everyone and welcome to Club Scraps August blog hop featuring the New Beautiful Lagoon  Deluxe kit !  If you arrived from Jennifer's Blog then you are in the right place , if not you will want to start from the beginning at Karen(Club Scrap blog)so you don't miss any of the wonderful inspiration from the Club Scrap Artist Team! There is also a list of the entire line up there for you with links :) Have fun & I hope you enjoy todays Hop!

I love that each club scrap kit inspires me to get more of my scrapbooking done, as I was lacking on that before Club Scrap! Right now I have so many pages complete, that I'm ready to put together a nice 12 x12 album :) Love that!

For my layout today I chose to keep this one a little simple, no flowers, no ribbon, just stamping and fussy cutting for this one.  On this layout here I chose to use the seaweed from both stamp sets, and then stamped the starfish 3 times and airbrushed all of them. Love how they look on my page for today.

The photo matts were created using 1 8 1/2" x 11" design paper sheet from the deluxe Lagoon club kit, and I cut it to 5 1/2" x 5 3/4" for the big photo matt, then the 2 little ones were cut to 3" x 3 1/4". I didn't add photo's to this, as I need to print them out.

Make Waves tag/ and border along the bottom of the page were cut from the Lagoon cut-a -part sheet that came in my kit.

Seas the day. was stamped on a leftover piece I had from the design paper sheet I used for the photo matts.

The wide border on my page was leftover from the last page I made using the 12 x 12 sheet of design paper, so I thought this would make a nice border along the right side of my page.

Doily was cut using a Cheery Lynn Designs Mega Doily.

Club Scrap Supplies-
Lagoon Deluxe Kit
Lagoon Embellishment Cut a Part
Lagoon Art Nouveau unmounted stamps (for small seaweed and Seas the day.)
Lagoon Jumbo unmounted stamps (for the large seaweed, and starfish)
Card Stock (sand , and Light Teal) from the Deluxe Lagoon kit

Hello everyone, today I have a fun Christmas card I designed using the New Fall/Winter Release from Cheery Lynn Designs. LOVE all the new dies in this Release as they are all so beautiful/DARLING! To see them all, please visit Cheery Lynn Designs here. I also used the sweet sentiment from The Project Bin Stamps called "Joyful Song".

Cheery Lynn Dies-
Penguin Pals B909
Cut and Emboss Snowflake E202
Sparkle Christmas Tree B913
Royal Scandinavian Doily

I started out by doing 2 layers of design paper and white card stock, then added the Doily that was cut out in white on top. Next I layered all the Cheery Lynn dies starting with the beautiful trees that i cut out using the coordinating design paper then distressing with 2 green inks. I also added glitter to both tree's using stickles. My snowflake was cut using the same design paper, and just popped up using foam tabs. The sweet little penguin was cut out in white card stock 2 times and pieced together after coloring. I also added stickles to him his hat.

Lastly I added a big white satin bow to complete my card for today. Ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Under the Sea Birthday Wishes

Hello everyone, and Happy Thursday to you all!
Today I have another fun card made for Really Reasonable Ribbon using the Lagoon Club Kit from Club Scrap and Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon! I cant tell you how much I love this months kit, and the inspiration it brings to me.

For my card I started with one of the design papers from the kit, it is the back layer, then I used the pretty light teal blue card stock for layering each layer on my card.

Next I chose white, to do all my stamping with the club scrap lagoon collection of stamps, coloring and airbrushing using the copic markers and airbrushing.  I fussy cut out each of the seahorse, fish, and starfish, and then added some stickles to the fish, glossy accents to the seahorse, and just airbrushed the starfish. LOVE all the different stamps in these sets, as there are many to choose from. The bubbles are done with glossy accents as well.

Ribbon used is white taffeta from Really Reasonable Ribbon and I also used the 3-D foam tabs tombow, and then the 3-D thin foam tabs white.

Club Scrap August Artist Team Challenge

Hello everyone, and welcome to Club Scraps August Artist Team Challenge! This month the August Challenge is Inspired by Pinterest’s newest feature, “Tried it”, the Artist Team challenge this month is to visit the Club Scrap Pinterest account, choose a Pin with a technique or tutorial that inspires you, then make pages, cards or other projects inspired by that Pin. Once your project is complete, click the “Tried it” icon on the Pin.

You should have arrived from Debbie's blog, however if you did not , you might want to start from the beginning at Karen's Club Scrap Blog , that way you won't miss any of the Design Teams Beautiful creations today.

So I tried 2 pins I found, I loved them both and couldn't decide between the 2 so I did both using Club Scrap Lagoon Deluxe Kit. One is the Envelope punch board Coin Envelopes by Tricia, the second pin I tried was the embossing folder leaves, but I did not use a folder, I used my score board and did the embossing that way. I had so much fun doing both these techniques, thank you Club Scrap! Both can be found here at Club Scrap on Pinterest.
The leaves I did were a light blue color that I distressed with club scraps green ink pads, I used two. Next m flowers were made using some precut die flowers I had in a baggy sitting on my work station, so I distressed them in a coordinating color. I did add club scraps pretty Teal Jewel stickers that came in the Lagoon Deluxe Club Kit., I not only used them for the centers of my flowers, but also for on the page too. Love how they look.
 Envelope was done using one of the coordinating papers from the Deluxe Lagoon kit, and then I added one of the cut aparts to add a date on the envie. Inside is another cut apart that I can add the journaling for this page.

Papers are all from the Club Scrap Deluxe Lagoon Kit, except the white backing for the teal.

Sewing was added using a blue color thread, and I also added a Cheery Lynn doily that I cut up to make it look way larger than it is.

Embellishments- came from the Deluxe Lagoon kit, and are the starfish, mini tag, and stickers.

Ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon Diamond Satin The Photo's are from June 2016 and were taken at Woodward lake in California. Miesha met a friend and his name was Bo! hehehe they had so much fun playing in the water.

Wishing you all the best.

Hello crafty friends and Happy Friday to you all!
Today I have a card I created using the Beautiful Lagoon Deluxe Scrap Kit from Club Scrap , and designed it for Really Reasonable Ribbons Challenge this week, anything goes with ribbon or trim! I thought Really Reasonable Ribbons Diamond Satin went perfectly with the colors on my card.

To start with I stamped the club scrap greenery stamp in green inks and then colored. Next I wanted to airbrush the water, it had been a long time since ive done this. Not sure it came out like I wanted, but im still happy with the results. I used 3 different copics to airbrush with. Next I stamped the sentiment in black ink, and then the fish as well. He is colored with copics, and then added some glitz to him and fussy cut him out.

The layers of design papers are from the 12" x 12" design paper pattern for the bottom layer, then the second layer is from the 8 1/2" x 11" design paper.

The dies I used are from Cheery Lynn, I used 3 different ones for the layering on top of my card.

Pearls , Ribbon, and Foam squares are from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Thank you for stopping by and taking a peek at my card for today! I hope you will join us over at Really Reasonable Ribbon for this weeks challenge.

 Hello everyone and Happy Monday to all!
Today I have a super simple card I made for Really Reasonable Ribbon & Club Scrap using the beautiful taffeta ribbon , netting and embellishments, and Club Scraps Delft Collection!

On my card I made a big white bow using RRR Taffeta ribbon, and love the way it looks. I tried to keep my card simple, which is always hard for me to do as I love lots of layers and embellishments. Next I chose one of my top favorite Club Scrap Collections, this one is the Delft Collection and I love it!
My card consist of 2 layers from the Delft collection. I did the bottom layer is leftover design paper, then added some of Really Reasonable Ribbons White Netting in 1.5" before adding the sentiment layer. For my sentiment layer I stamped the delft stamps and colored, then used Really Reasonable Ribbons 3-D Foam tabs to pop it up. Next I added the white bow, and lastly I added some of the RRR Resin flower embellishments.

Super fast and easy card to make when you need a last minute thank you!

Childhood Memories Layout

Hello everyone, and Happy Thursday to all!
Today I'm sharing a super sweet Layout I made for Really Reasonable Ribbon using the beautiful Ribbon, Embellishments, and Scor-Tape they carry in their shop. Love how this sweet layout of my 3 kids turned out. This one photo was taken back in 1997 when they were all little, and love how it goes perfectly with the design paper too!
I really enjoyed creating this layout for todays post. It was fun trying the different design papers and getting everything laid out. I love the colors/prints I chose to use on this one. All the flowers and dies are from Cheery Lynn Designs, and all the centers of the flowers are embellishments from RRR. I will list right below.
Really Reasonable Ribbon Supplies Used:
Its so much fun to add the photo's to layouts that we create, sometimes I don't add photo's, as im not sure what ones I want, or I haven't printed them yet, however this one was set aside for this collection of paper, and it brought back so many wonderful memories of this time when they were young, miss those days. Now they are all grown and have their own lives.
I ran the gingham ribbon down the center of my one banner layer in kinda the middle of the page, then added a bow. Next I chose to use the Red polka dot satin and made another bow to scrunch in the center of my black gingham bow.
Flowers were cut using the coordinating dp from the Mother Goose collection. I added the embellishments to all flowers, and also distressed them using ink.  My one covered button I distressed it yellow, as I didn't have a yellow one to use.
Flowers/ Flourishes, Doily are all Cheery Lynn Beautiful Dies. LOVE these

Thank you for stopping by, and have a lovely day!
Hugs to all,
