Another awesome year of Clubs came to an end in April – BUT we get to start a whole new round in May. We have so much fun at our Clubs and my customers become close friends which is a side benefit of joining a club.
I have two active clubs running….
Techniques Club – we meet at 10:00 am and 7:00 pm on the 2nd Tuesday of each month. You can come in the morning or evening. Each club has 8 members so we run for 8 months and each month you commit to spending $30. We learn two new techniques each month and you receive the full instructions and make a sample of each one. Then we take one of these new techniques and create a project using the technique.
Big Shot Club – we meet at 10:30 am and 7:00 pm on the 1st Wednesday of each month. The club projects focus on the Big Shot and the accessories and dies from the catalogue. I have openings in this club as a lot of my members moved over to the Techniques Club for the next round. Our first meeting will be on May 4th so if you'd like to join please email me!
Here are the latest projects we've made at the Big Shot Club.
This card uses the Elegant Line Embossing Folder along with the Butterfly Die.
I added the strip of cardstock using the Ribbon Punch – I love this punch because you can make any colour of faux ribbon using cardstock.
I soften the edges of the butterflies by sponging them with Whisper White Craft ink. The pearls add a little elegance and just finish off the card nicely.
This was a card we did last month at club – it uses the same Elegant Lines Embossing Folder (can you tell that I LOVE this folder) along with the Fun Flowers die available in the current Occasion Mini catalogue.
The flower die is currently available for order but it will ship on May 2nd.
I used the Whisper White Craft ink to soften the edges of the black flowers and black ink on the edges of the newsprint DP flowers.
I saw this project at the Vancouver Regional event and loved it!
Sorry for the picture quality – had to use my IPhone.
The colours are Pumpkin Pie and Wild Wasabi. The die is the Petal Cone and it cuts the cone (which became the carrot) the 1/2 scallop (which I ran through the Polka Dot Embossing Folder) and the banner.
I ran some cardstock through the Crimper and then cut thin strips to make the the "straw" and then added the Lindt chocolate carrot as a treat for my club members.
The "carrot" is stamped in Pumpkin Pie using the Easter Blossoms stamp set.
