March Club Projects - Scrapbook

Last fall, I attended one of Lindsey's Stamp Camps. She gave everyone an adorable make 'n take. When I was planning the scrapbook layout for this month, I pulled it out and used it for the inspiration of the layout.

Of course, when you're dealing with a subject as cute as Riley Girl - how could it turn out any less than precious ?!

Cardstock: Old Olive, Rose Red, Old Olive DS, Rose Red DS, Whisper White
Inks: Old Olive, Rose Red
Accessories: 5/8" Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon, Old Olive Poly-Twill Ribbon, Silver Style Hodgepodge Hardware, Decorative Ribbon (non-SU!)

March Club Projects - Cards

I'm using the Garden Whimsy stamp set for this month's projects. This is such a cute set. Unfortunately, I couldn't get my creative juices flowing so I looked to others for inspiration.

When I attended Lindsey & Leah's Winter Retreat, my goody bag contained several cards. One of them used the large butterfly from Garden Whimsy. I kept the same color scheme and basic layout, but I changed a few of the details. The camera doesn't pick it up very well, but the butterfly's wings "flutter!"

Stamp Set: Garden Whimsy
Cardstock: Basic Gray, Purely Pomegranate, Very Vanilla
Inks: Basic Gray, Purely Pomegranate
Accessories: Phot Corner Punch, Crafter's Tool Kit

The second card is CASEd from a card I found on Split Coast Stampers (http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/826552?cat=10624).
