November club layout

Club met on Friday and this is the layout we did, the paper is older CTMH paper but we made the poinsettias using the snowflakes stamp which coordinates with the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge and a Holiday stamp set for the leaves which were also cut out using the cricut cartridge.  I really like this layout and already put some pics on mine, will have to post the finished layout (hopefully without the glare).

October Club layout

This layout was using the Frosted paper and the flakey friends stamp, I colored in the snowmen with CTMH water color pencils.

July's club layout

I really like this layout, I used "Tommy" paper from Close to My Heart and "Home of the Brave" stamp set.  I did embossing on the statue of Liberty and think it turned out pretty cute.  Enjoy.

February hostess club layout

This layout was made using a couple packs I had of bulk papers from Sonoma and Mayberry paper.  I love the way Close to My Heart's colors coordinate to make this possible.  I cricuted the title using Close to My Heart's art philosophy cartridge.  No stamping this time.  Maybe next month.  I did do some distressing on the colonial white base edges, hard to see in the picture. 

January hostess club layout

This was our club layout for January 2013.  I used Avonlea paper from Close to My Heart.  The title is stamped and the lacey round shape we did using heat embossing with silver embossing powder.
