Club Scrap Blog Hop: London is Calling

Welcome to another 
Club Scrap Blog Hop.
This month the Kit is called London is Calling
Beautiful colors and a wonderful theme!
Hope you have seen  Marya's Blog with her beautiful
ideas en come to see what I have in strore for you.

If you loose your way you can always go to
Club Scrap's Blog and see all the participant.

I have been to England and London too,so i went tolook for
all those old pictures to scrap.......I just could not find where
i put them....you recognize this?! I found one and made this 
fun popup card with a 12x12 inch piece of paper cut in half.
This is the outside. The phonebooth is embossed in red.
Inside of the card with the picture on the
pop-up part of the card.

Backside of the card.

So what else to do with this kit?
Looking at the colors it made me think
the colors would be crad for a baby boy book.

Now isn't this a coincidence:
 I need one of those books soon,
 for my daughter is pregnant:
and swelling a lot for she is having twin boys!
The black image is cut out with my cricut
with the "New Arrival" cartidge and the sentiment
from the UM stamp is absolutely the greatest and
you can fill in any word(s) you want.

So for these two boys I have made a brag book.
Not two seperate ones,but one book for two.
Here is the finished book and it is ready to be filled
when they are born end June/ begin July.
These are the parts I started with:
back: 13"x 6,5"
spine: 1 1/4"x 6,5"
left and right parts: 6,5"x 6,6

Having made more books and watching the CS video
tutorials I remembered how to add different colors
of paper,especially when you do noth have the right
lenght of paper.

I used all the different colors inside and 
out to cover the bookboard.

Here is the complete cover for the book without
the embellishments.

Making holes in the spine to add the inside pages.
Here the finished left side of the book:
I used the Fizz and Cape Cod stencil to create
more depth to the paper.
The picture frames are embossed with clear
embossing powder and added with foam tape
tothe background, so I can add pictures ot the
babies. The numbers are the cut aparts.

On the right side I used a sentiment from
(baby sentiment was a freebie this week
and adapted for twins). 
The world stampand the other sentiment are
from Club Scraps Bookshelves kit.
I cut several 12x12 papers in half and folded them
to be the inside papers and used wax thread to 
sew the papers in the book.
On the outside I added some blue beads
for decoration.

I can't wait to fill the book with pictures!
For this I have to wait a little more,but at least
this project is done. I will share with you
more of the inside, when the pictures are there.

Now for more inpiration on what to do with the
London Calling kit,please hop over to
and see what she has come up with.

Thank you for looking,

Sunday ScrapPage: Buzz Lightyear

Here I am with another scrapbook page.
Papers are Club Scrap Comics

My grandson is a big fan of Toy Story and he loves
Buzz Lightyear. Until now he had a mini version i still had from
a Mac Donald children menu from years back.
I did want the real big doll for him,but not available in the shops
anymore, so I posted an ad on Facebook.I did not get 
many reactions,but after about a fourthnight someone told
me she had seen it somewhre and brought me in contact with this person.
And now Buzz is here and Owen loves it. He calls it his Big Buzz.

The printed sentiments I found on line, just google 
the sentiment with images.If you  cannot find them,but want them,
just email me.
Here the original Toy Story from 1995
(OMG this is from 20 years ago!!).
On this page you also see the mini stars of Michael Strong.
I embossed them here with 3 colors embossing powder on each star.
The text is printed with the computer.
The other stars are all done in one of the 3 embossing powders
I used next to the journaling. The background stamp in white
is from Club Scrap's Sparkle kit 2007.

Thank you for looking!
Have a creative day!

Saturday Card: Flowers

Today I have some flowers for you!
mini flower and
large pot stamp
You find the stamps HERE.
The paper is from Club Scrap Oopsie Daisy.
I started out by stamping the potstampin dark brown
and colored the pot with pencils.

I stamped the pot on a post it note and cut this out to cover
the pot for the next stage. I sprinkled some yellow bistre
grains on top of the pot.

Then I sprayed some water on top of the grains.
With a paper towel I took away the  puddles
of water and dryed it with a heat gun.

With a matching color inkpad, I stamped the flowers on top of
the bistre coloring.I used Club Scrap Topaz inkpad.

To give the flowers more dimention, I also stamped some
flowers on an extra piece of paper,cut them out and
added these with foam tape on the card.

For the heart of the flowers I made little dark brown
dots with a pearl pen.

Here the result of the finished flowers.

Inside I used a lovely sentiment by Create with TLC.
On this blog you find many freebies: sentiments,
papers and vintage pictures.

This free sentiment is still available for a short time here:

Thanks very much for looking!

Have a creative day!

Sunday Scrap Page: Valentine

Of course today's pageis about Valentine.
I used the Club Scrap Love Ink papers.
It is so easy to make a page,for the kit comes
with wonderful assembly instructions, so no waste of papers!
I used intstuctions for page 5 from the instruction sheet.

You find the instructions on the Club Scrap website
for free here.

My DH and I went on atrip to Rotterdam for Valentine.
There is an absolutely wonderful new market place that
just opened on Oct 2014 that we wanted to see and thought
it a nice idea to have lunch there.

You can read about this place HERE.
We had a wonderful Labanese lunch.

Of course I got some flowers and for my gift I have to 
wait a little longer.I wanted the Edge of Eternity by Ken Follett
in paperback and not the hard cover that is out now.

Of course I changed the sticker heart for an other heart.
The Michael Strong heart stamp.

This time I stamped it on white shrink plastic
with a red inkpad.
I used the large heart stamp and here you see
the large version when stamped and the shrunk vesrion
when heated. Yes, even the color changed,became a little darker.

It is so much fun to use shrink plastic. I could have easily made
the hearts into earings. For this you just punch a hole in the shrink
plastic before heating it.

Thank you for looking.

Animal Valentine

Here my last idea for Valentine.
I came across this idea on a blog online HERE
and downloaded the template.
There is also a download for SVG there.

For this card I used the monkey
and the Love Ink papers by Club Scrap.

These papers come with some cut out for cards
and this one matched perfectly.Because of the
monkey i also pulled out some green paper
from the Comics kit.

The monkey is holding a real wrapped chocolate heart.
Ribbon is from my stash.
Here you see all the different animals.
I printed them on some other Club Scrap papers I have.
For the next card I printed the bear on Homestead paper.
I could not find a cut out that I liked to go with this one,
so I turned one of the panels and made a my own background.
First I used the heart and dots stencil
to color the paper and then the heart from
the Club Scrap 2009 Heart to Hearts um stamps.
On the top card there is a real chocolate,
but this is way to heavy for a card,
so for this one I stamped another of the stamps of the
CS 200g Heart to Heart stamps and embossed in white
to replace the chocolate.

The sentiment is also from the same set.
The ribbon is from the Love Ink kit too.

Well this is it for Valentine 2015.
Hope you all have a wonderful and
