Welcome to the monthly Club Scrap blog hop.
This month the kit is called Paradise.
I hope you have arrived here from
and seen her beautiful artwork.
If you happen to loose your way,
you can find all participants of the hop
on the Club Scrap Blog.
Here is surprise for you...what's in the bag?
Yes, I started with making a bag from printing out
the leaves design from the digital Paradise kit
on copy paper. Not on the heavy cardstock.
This is not good for folding and wrapping is usually thrown away.
I found on Pinterest how to make the bag
and by looking at this picture it was easy
to copy how to make a bag.
For decoration I used one of the cut
aparts from the paper kit. The flowers are
punched out and a few gemstones are added.
Closing the bag with a bookclip from my stash.
I have been playing with food jars (I have lots!)
and that is what had to be wrapped up.
I started with making a snowblobe.
Using two pictures and glueing them back to back.
I laminated the picture, leaving a bottom
of an extra half an inch.
The lid of the jar is decorated with a border from
the cut aparts from the paper kit.
The leaves from the rubber stamps are stamped
with dark green ink and colored with a water brush.
The picture is cut in 3 parts. The middle part
folded to the back and the two outside bits towards the front.
I used hot glue to fasten the picture to the lid.
Before adding the picture I added some
gold glitter inside the jar.
Here the decoration I added on the fron of the jar.
I must say it works best with hot glue to stick
everything to the jar.
The other jar I used to make a hanging element.
Make a hole in the middle of the lid for the ribbon
and print a picture. Oh my there are those boys again!
The picture is decorated with flowers that
were cut out after stamping and fastned with little
yellow brads from my stash. Rolling the picture
and taping beginning and end together.
At the top make some cuts for glueing it
on the lid. Through the lid you see the ribbon
that holds one of the buttons that came with the kit.
This is so that the ribbon won't fall through.
On top the parrot ( I thought this is quite appropriate:
they make a lot of noise all together), leaves and
flowers. The jungle is here!
But these boys are a bliss too. Love them to bits!
My last project is a card. This kit has such
happy colors it is perfect for a birthday card.
I used this sketch challenge for November
from a Dutch stampgroup.
And colored my imgages with watercolor and a paintbrush.
Also this card qualifies for the last day
of the 30 day color callenge for
Do you see that fun pinapple washi tape? I found it
today and could not resist using it on my card.
The flowers are punched out .
Well, this was my contribution,
but there is more. Go over to
and see her vision of Paradise.
Thank you for looking
and have a creative day!
