Bistro paper and alpha stickers, Lemonade QK, label maker, flower, kajinker stone and piercer. I've complete all three challenge, every month on the Clubscrap chat board. This has been so rewarding and love the thought of not totally hoarding the wonderful Clubscrap paper.

I joined a 4x4 fat book swap with the theme of Winter Art. I’ve had this idea of a tag I wanted to make with the new Grungeboard Basics and my Sizzix machine. This is not the tree, cardstock or snowflakes I’m using on my 4x4 swap, but it is close to my final idea. I still need to make that tag! Here is the ATC with leftover materials that I had on my desk last night while making my prototype. The Glimmer Mist background can't be seen in this scan, trust me...it looks so dreamy.
I used Club Scrap, Musical Interlude black and white cardstock. The red cardstock is from Autumn Splendor. I used the Cricut Opposites Attract cartridge for the font, scanned a copy of my card and made cross cutouts from Autumn Splendor red. Thanks to Diane Ehlers for getting me past my block with this topic.
I've been participating in a Book of Me challenge on the Clubscrap email list for over a year now. December is our last month. A lot of the postings are personal, so I haven't shared on my blog. This 8x8 layout is for the prompt named: My Hopes
I used all paper from the Dec 2007 Clubscrap kit, Sparkle. Cricut My World cutout and K&Co chipboard letters. I used Snowflake Glimmer Mist on the white background. It really shimmers in real life.

It was a full day with plenty of animals to look at. Amazing, none of the cats are in my photo's. Maybe Kathie Wurdeman got some kitty photo's.
We got to play with acrylic paint and colored pencils. Learned some wonderful colored pencil tips. So, how do you get rid of the lines? Cover over top of with White or Cream. If you don’t want to mute/blend your original color…Prisma has a blender pen too.

Black CS with Pearl Glimmer Mist, gold stickers from CS kit and bliss from rubon glitter package
This was going to be my Week 11 submission, but it just didn’t turn out as good as the one I submitted. I used Distress Powders (for the first time), cover of the stamps I used to mail Christmas cards and a gold foily thing I ordered from some small ephemera place.
Our theme this week was Christmas, Colors are Red-Green-Purple-Gold and Technique is Postage
I used Basic Grey Figgy Pudding as my background, some gossomer fiber from Clubscrap, Stampendous gold corners and the stamp is from the booklet of stamps I emptied to mail out Christmas cards :-)
