Club House Kudos: Tidy Mom!

This site, for this week’s kudos, was sent to me by a friend.  It’s not strictly a scrapbooking site by any means, but it does have some cool links to printable and projects.  Loads of  recipes and tips for everyday living as well.

Kudos to Tidy Mom!!

Kit Spotlight: The Road Home

I *heart* this kit:

 

Here are some samples:

I’ve had a few people ask about ideas for the canvas tags/patches in the kit. As you can see above, I did a half flower in the Explore layout. You can also see some like these:

at the Pink Paislee site with instructions on how to make them found here:

Another idea is to use them for a small notebook cover. Similarly, I am doing a Thanksgiving/gratitude mini album which is below. I xyroned the canvas patch on and I think it works well for the cover of it.

Hope you like what you have seen!  Get your kit here today!

A Reminder: contest time!!

Technique Tidbit Thursday: Glimmer Mist Masking

By Allyson B. Meyer

Hey everyone!

I hope you enjoy this online class. This is a super-fun, easy technique that yields great results. I wish this had photographed a bit better…the tiny, glittery details are a bit hard to capture.

I’m going to teach you this technique by creating a card, but you can use this with layouts and other projects, too.

All of the supplies I used are from Scrapbooker’s Club House! You’ll need: cardstock, glimmer mist, chipboard shapes, and embellishments of your choice.

Start with a blank card cut from cardstock:

Arrange chipboard shapes on cardstock. Do not adhere.

Spray glimmer mist over chipboard shapes and card.


Let dry completely. Lift chipboard shapes off and set aside.

You now have a beautiful, metallic card background with a unique design showing where you placed your chipboard shapes.

(The photos make this look a bit more “blotchy” than it is in real life, which is metallicy goodness!

Embellish your card as desired:

As a fun bonus, your chipboard shapes will now be all glittery:

Feel free to use them on another project. Watch for my layout at the end of the month featuring these pieces!

I hope you enjoyed this fun & easy technique!

Challenge! And a prize too!!

I’d like to propose a challenge!  Yes, I would.  Up for grabs is a prize pack from Scrapbooker’s Club House.  All you have to do is create a layout about the little things that make you unique/your quirks.  It could be one thing like how you hate it when the cupboard doors are left open or how you eat the same meal every Sunday night.  It’s up to you.  Like us to your blog  in the Comments section below to show us your entry. 

Deadline: Tuesday, Sept. 28th.

Have fun!  I can’t wait to see your entries!

We Interrupt This Program…

Just a brief post to let you know the site has had some technical difficulties over the weekend.  While shopping, some of you may have come up with an error message, but fear not.  Hitting “refresh” on your computer or using the Back button seems to be a temporary fix and you can continue shopping.  Tech support is working to get this cleared for us asap.

Thanks for your patience and understanding!
