Club Scrap National Parks Blog Hop

This month the Club Scrap kit is called
~ National Parks~
and I hope you came over here from 
and enjoyed seeing her wonderful project for this hop.

Now you won't believe me saying this: but this kit
 was not for me, no feeling with parks at all.
As you know paper has two sides and I do love
 the colors of this kit  These colors are perfect for:
coffee cards!

so I got out my coffee stencil and stamps from
Wat's Brewing to make this card.
The background is layers made with the stencil
and the burlapthat came with this kit is a 
perfect embellishment.

Also the colors of this kit are great for my Italy
pictures. I took the ALSB instructions and 
used layout 13&14 
You find these free instructions HERE.

As you turn the pages all of them have a plain color.
That makes a boring page,so out come the stencils!
With the adobe stencil and some acrylic paint
 ( antique linnen) I decorated the paper.

And for the kraft colored paper I used the stencil 
fromCape Cod , ink and a blender tool.

If you loose your way along the hop,
you can always go back to the main page on the 
Club Scrap Blog, where you find all
the links tothe blogs that participate.

Now for the next blog, you can see what
has come up with for you.

Happy Hopping!

Have a creative day!

Great idea to stencil the backgrounds of the plain side of the papers. Way to think "outside the box"! Your cards and pages came out great. TFS!

you both make me feel better and inspire me, Hetty. Like you,
I can't seem to connect with the theme of this month's kit.
I do love how you used the stencils to create the background for your Italy photos.

Love how you made this kit your own! I make my own background digitally, but always forget that I can do it to paper too.
