Club Scrap Big Top Blog Hop

This month Club Scrap has such a fun kit:
Big Top and see here the goodies: 

and the color scheme:
I hope you found your way here from 
and complimented her on her wonderful work.

Here I am sharing my ideas with you.
I have come up with 3 projects.

The first is inspired by this sewing box that I recently
got from a friend. An look what is inside:
I notices all these spools with sewing thread.
These can be used for great projects and suddenly
I had an idea.

I started with painting the spools.
Cut strips of the paper and used bookbinding glue
to glue them around the spools.

There was also this washi tape with the kit (the right one)
and I added the left one from my stash and used
it also to decorated some of the spools.
Then with metal wire and yellow wooden beads Imade the
spoolsinto a wreath.
And this is the result.
A wreath with a circus tent in the middle
and a big bow of ribbon from the kit  on top.

Here some detailed pictures. You see also the stamp
I used and on the tent Iglued some half circles with the 
sticky pearls in between to give it the circus tent look.

So I thought this is it, I hav my project for the blog hop.
Well I came up with something else. I have these pocket
sleeves for scrapbooking and in a jiffy I had this page ready.

Yes,my daughters family is a great inspiration for scrapbooking!

Then I was looking around in the forum an noticed the toolof the month
is the envelope punch board. Ilove it and not only to make enveloppes.
You can make bow with it and boxes. There are many great ideas on you tube
and I found this treat bag. Yes,this kit is also perfect for Halloween.
Aren't these cute?
You find the instruction video here:

Here a close up. The lables are printed with the
computer. The purple circles are from an old kit called
Dreamin Color and had thes as cut outs.

Now for this orange treat bag I used a spiderweb stencil
to make it more Halloween. These treatbags are cute and 
quick to make.

Well, these were my ideas,but there are many more.
The next blog is that of
and I love to see what she has come up with.

If you hapen to loose your way,you can always 
go back to the  Club Scrap Blog.

Thanks for looking and leaving your comments.
Have a creative day!

Hetty, you went crazy this month, and I LOVE IT! Your grandchildren will be the best scrapbooking "material" around. I will have fun watching them all grow up, and before we know it they'll be off to school. Enjoy the ride! (I had a fabulous grandmother, but I believe you are on of the best Omas on the planet!)
