Club Scrap November Blog Hop: Trattoria

Here we are today with the monthly
Club Scrap Trattoria Blog Hop
for November. Sharing with you ideas what to do with your
pizza box of paper and stamp goodies.

You find all the participants on the main
Club Scrap Blog, but I hope you have arrived here from
and seen what delicious work she had for you.

When you have been hopping, you must have noticed
that the Artist Team will stop existing and that
for next year there will be other ideas of sharing 
inspiration with you. Even though I will not be stopping
sharing my ideas with you, I want to THANK Tricia and 
Karen for the opportunity to be on this team
and being able to play with so many of the wonderful
goodies each and every month. I have loved the
challenges we were set and sharing ideas with
the other members of the Artist Team. 

I absolutely love the ALSB instructions, to get the most out
of the papers for scrapbooking, so I just had to do a spread.
As I do eat pizza, but never made pictures of it, now I needed
to do so for my pages this month.
On Tuesday we have the grandchildren all day.
The twins come early in the morning and the older brother
comes after school. When they go home, we are tired
and I do not feel much like cooking. We discovered New York 
Pizza has special Tuesday deals, so Tuesday is our 
pizza day now: double pepperoni and New York.

I love the moustache on the stencil that came with this kit, 
especially because my Ray has one :-)! 

I also wanted to make some cards and here are 3 cards
I came up with:
For these cards I used some letter dies (Stampin' Up!).
Lately I seem to see a lot of cards using big lettering.

Card #1 is an oblong card (8"x 4"), with no stamping involved,
just the paper, ribbons, love charm and cut apart from the kit.

Here a close up to some wonderful detail of the card.
The wonderful word charm on the ribbon and do you
see the great decorated paper through the cut out lettering?!

Card #2 is a bridge card that I really like now.
For a bridge card you use the 8,5"x 11" piece of paper
and cut it vertical in half and make the papers
I add the intructions here from the Orchard colection 
with all the scoring details.

The pizza letters are the ones I cut out of the panel
on card #1. The pizza's are from the digital kit
and colored in photoshop.
Inside the card I stamped one of the fun sentiments
from the Trattoria Art Nouveau unmounted rubber
stamps and glued some pizza pieces to it as well.

And because Christmas is near and the colors of this kit
are also great for Christmas cards I made this one as well.
Pizza delivery from the North Pole is card #3.
In addition to the Trattoria papers I had two gnooms
left and used Scandinavian Holiday Jumbo stamps.
The sentiment on the front is printed with the computer.

Inside the card I stamped a few Christmas baubles
in green and a sentiment in red. I used the same digital
pizza's as on card #2.

More Christmas cards we will be sharing on 
December 11, when some of us have put together
another blog hop (we just could not resist!!)

And because this is the last post with the team
I made a little more than usual.
When asking for pizza, how about another pizza box,
but not the big size, just a little one.

This little pizza box is 3,5"x 3,5" and  made by SU!.
For the top of the box I used the printed pizza colored
in photoshop. Behind the pizza the colors of the Italian
national flag. Behind the pizza a scalloped circle cut
with a spellbinder die. I love the fork charm that came 
with this kit and added it on top of the box, fixing
it with a little glossy accent glue.

Around the box I used some of the cut apart strips
ans stamped some of my own with the little pizza
slice in red ink.

And now for the inside of the box: it holds 4 small
cards 3x3 inch and matching enveloppes.
i made the enveloppes with the enveloppe punch board.

For the cards I used some of the cut aparts in combination
with sstamping, ribbons and more pizza.

Just some fun and silly cards. You never know when you
need some?!

And of course i could not throw away the little 
cut out heart and used it inside the card with
another stamped sentiment.

Well, sigh, this was it!
Hope you have enjoyed all my posts for Club Scrap
and got some inspiration out of it. 
Next for her last post go to
and see what yummy artwork she has for you.

Thank you so much for looking
and have a creative day!
