Here are the projects we made at the February stamp club.  I'm working on being more consistent on loading projects, please bear with me.  This month I got my new stamping space put together (pictures coming very soon), and that delayed me getting some stuff posted.

This first project was done using the great Sale-a-Bration products.  I posted this one earlier because we made it at both my stamp class and my stamp club!  The stamp set is Fresh Vintage
and the paper and small colored ribbons are from the Everyday Enchantment.  All (including some limited edition brads) can be earned through the month of March by either purchasing product or hosting a stamp party with me.

The cut labels are using the Labels collection framelits dies out of the Occasions Mini catalog and the Sizzix Big-Shot.  So fun to use.

This next card is an idea that I cased from another demonstrator.  The only thing I changed was the oval punch at the top and the stamp used for the message.  It's a neat way to show heat embossing (here using White embossing powder) and watercoloring (here with a  blender pen and stamp pads).  The "bling" is added using the Basic Rhinestone jewels.

Finally, I cased another idea from another great demonstrator.  I earned the Gnome Sweet Gnome stamp set for participating in a book-a-thon with Stampin' Up! back in December.  Another great perk of being a demonstrator!  However, I just had trouble coming up with ideas to use this set.

For my stamp class in February, we made projects using the Fresh Vintage stamp set and coordinating products in the Sale-a-Bration brochure.  This first project is a card, and uses the Labels Collection Framelits dies from the Occasions Mini catalog and the Sizzix Big-Shot die-cutting machine.

The second project is also a card.  I got the idea from the demonstrator group I'm a part of, and this was a card done in a shoebox swap I participated in.  I simply changed the color scheme.  

The last project was one that I've been wanting to make for some time now.  It uses the Scallop Envelope die and the Sizzix Big-Shot machine.  It takes 2 of the envelope dies, trimming the bottom off to measure only 1/2" each.  They are attached together using Sticky-Strip adhesive and then decorated. These are perfect for Post-It notes or small note cards given as a gift.

Thanks for stopping by!
