Club Scrap Ultimate Challenge

Have you missed me????

I am trying to get my stash organized in my graftroom! But doing nothig is totally not me.
So while sorting out my Club Scrap stash, I cam across some wonderful papers
and just had to use them for some of the January challanges on the  Club Scrap Chat Facebook group.

This month I go for the Ultimate Challenge. 
Here is the explanation by Julie:

Idea Deck - Layout using Jack of Spades


Tool Stash: Using embossing folder



Card Sketch: 




I used BandanaRama '09 papers and a Fizz sentiment.
The background is embossed with a paisley 
embossing folder. For the front panel
I stamped the wooden rubber stamp, that came
with the kit, in versamark and embossed it with
clear embossing powder. 
Next I colored the panel with turquise
ink and the stamped images stand out.
With a few sticky pearls, a ribbon and
the sentiment I finished the card.

Assembly Line: Completed BananaRama Retreat 09 papers
I have been to the retreat in 2009 and never
made the BandanaRama kit. I love it!

January 1st: New Year Resolutions


I made this fun project for the 
The challenge is to make something
that showcases your New Year's resolution.

Well, I do not have any special resolution:
just to great each day and make it
as good as can be and share a cup of coffee
with a friend.


I made this fun project, that started with a piece of wood
and 4 pegs. My idea was to make every month a new calendar
page and with the pegs it is easy to change.
I used the number thinlits by Stampin'Up! to make the 
number of the New Year.

The calenda page I found on internet. The coffee cups
and the spoon are from my new set from
Honey Bee stamps that I won in 
the coffeelovers blog hop. The cups are colored
with markers by Stampin'Up!.

The sentiment is from Create by TLC.
Visit the blog and you find lots of freebies
almost every day.

The  tea/coffee pot is a rubber stamp
I stamped it on teal colored paper and
embossed it with gold.

Thanks for looking
and I hope your year started
with coffee and creativity!
