November Club Projects

For this month's Stamp a Stack club we're using C1381 Card Chatter-Thank You.

I absolutely love the Sweet Home papers! I'm so pleased with how these pages turned out! We'll be using X7116B Sweet Home Level 2 papers and X7116C My Stickease.

In our Imagine Club we're using the retiring Everlasting papers. I'm sad to see these go as they're one of my favorite Christmas papers. The set is X7085B.

Hope you like the projects!
If you're interested in any of my clubs, email me and I'll give you all the details!

The Magic Fountain of Montjuic

Kim and I did some scrapping this week of our CTMH Mediterranean Cruise. The Magic Fountain in Barcelona was one of the most breathtaking things that we saw. We were tired that day (Saturday) as we had only gotten about 8 hrs. sleep since we left NY on Wednesday. We'd walked Las Ramblas on Saturday afternoon and had gone to see La Sagrada Familia church. We headed back to the hotel after seeing La Sagrada Familia to rest for a little bit. After sitting down it was all we could do to get going again. LOL! But, the Magic Fountain was within walking distance of the hotel, so off we went. What a beautiful sight! As the water danced in various colors, the music played. It was amazing, gorgeous, and every other adjective you could think of!

So today, when I should be cleaning house or stacking the firewood, I just had to take the time to do the journaling to finish our page and post it here for all to see. We must have taken well over 50 photos each of the fountain, so this is just a small representation of splendor.

October Club Artwork

I can't believe it's November 1st already!! Where did October go? Have you ever noticed that the time between Halloween and Christmas goes by in a blur!!

Speaking of Christmas! For October's Stamp a Stack club we used the Jingle Creative Basics and some of the Jingle My Reflections Level 2 paper pack to create these cute cards.

Our Cherish Club used the new Twitterpated My Reflections Level 2 paper pack.

And, for the Imagine Club, we used the retiring Rough & Tumble My Reflections Level 2 papers. I have a bunch of pictures of our grandson and my husband riding on all of the different John Deere tractors that we have, so I'll be using the pages with the Clover Meadow and Sunny Yellow to scrap those photos. We always joke that our grandson doesn't need to go to an amusement park as he has all the rides here. LOL!!

September Club Artwork

What a week! LOL!! I had planned on getting these posted earlier, but it's been one of those weeks!

Below you'll find the photo of the 10 cards we're doing in the September Stamp a Stack club. We used C1374 Spellbound to create our Halloween cards.

For our Cherish Club, we're using the new My Reflections Level 2 paper packet, X7117B, Grace. I really love this paper packet!

And, for our Imagine Club, we're using one of the soon to be retired My Reflections Level 2 paper packet, X7088B, Free Spirit.

August Artwork

Wow! What a crazy month August was! I was so busy I didn't get a chance to post these until now. As some of you know, I also create handpainted mailbox and vintage roofing slates to sell in a local shop, along with the doll clothes that I make. The end of July and August the city is filled with tourists and I tend to work under the gun most of the month as people want things customized and delivered to them before they leave. It's a crazy time, but I work best under pressure, so it works out well. LOL!

Pictured here are the cards we're making in the August Stamp a Stack Club. We used C1360 It's a Zoo. Most of the cards were done with the Expedition B&T papers, but, of course, I had to throw a couple of pink elephants in. LOL!

In our Imagine Club, we're using the retiring Floral Tapestry My Reflections kits. Love this paper!

And, for our Cherish Club, we used the new Back Country papers. I love these pages!! I hope you like them also.

Club Artwork sure has been busy lately! It's now officially the tourist season here, so I've been busy painting special order items and sewing to keep the racks full. I'm a bit late posting the July club artwork, but here they are. My travelin' buddy is off to Africa on the 19th of August, so I used the Expedition papers this month and will give them to her for her pictures when I see her again. These pages are also great for a day at the zoo.
