Scrap Club

Every month, Zoe and I run a Scrap Club evening.  I started it over six years ago and whilst it's changed it's format over the years, we still have a group of about 10 ladies join us every month.

We make a variety of single page layouts, double page layouts and mini books.  Attendees are normally asked what they would like to make and they put their ideas forward of what colours or what techniques they would like to use.  This month they wanted to do a Christmas double page spread whilst learning how to make the 3D flowers / medallions.

So, you can see above the pages that we completed.  Now those of you familiar with the Stampin' Up! catalogue will recognise the layout on the left hand side.  Inspired by a beautiful single page layout, I adapted it and made it the left hand page of our double layout.

Using Stampin' Up!'s Jolly Holiday papers, the Ornament Punch, the Scallop Circle punch, the Scallop Trim punch, Filigree brads and a bit of stamping using my favourite Curly and Cute stamp set!

Here's a closer look at the right hand page:

The ladies did a great job and finished most of it during the 2 hours that we have.  There were plenty of supplies left in their kits to make more or maybe even start their Christmas Cards!!!

If you fancy joining us, December is our Christmas party but in January we will be back Monday 17th January 2011 from 7.30 - 9.30pm.

If you live locally to me, Crawley Library has a Crafts for Christmas show on tomorrow and I will be there between 10am and 3pm, so stop by for a quick make and take, a chat or a chance to look at some fabulous ideas that I got from Stampin' Up! Convention.

Have fun!
