February Stamp Club

So it has been a LONG time since I posted here, I know, I know. Somehow at holiday time, all things get pushed aside except for what is scheduled on the official calenday, and blogging hasn't made it on yet! But it should. And it will! Here are pictures of this week's stamp club projects. This "LOVE U" table top home decor I got the idea from SU's new Stampin' Connection (which I LOVE LOVE LOVE by the way). Here is the link: Thanks Candice for the great idea!
As always, you can click on the picture to see it bigger, and in better detail.

Details: Stamps-Love You Much, Well Scripted, I (LOVE) Love Jumbo Roller. Ink- Pretty in Pink, Chocolate Chip. Paper- Sending Love Specialty DSP, Real Red, Pretty in Pink, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White. Other- 1 1/4" Square, 1 3/8" Square, Heart to Heart and Scallop Trim Corner Punches; Big Shot, Serif Essentials Alphabet Dies; Chocolate Chip Taffeta and Whisper White Organza Ribbons; Sticky Strip, Dimensionals. The measurements are (1) 12" X 4" real red, and (1) 8 1/2" X 4 real red, each scored at 4" & 8". This leaves a perfect 1/2" tab on the smaller piece to put stick strip on so you can adhere them together. Then each panel has a 3 1/2 X 3 1/2 decoration on it. The "Love You Much" stamp is matted with the square punches, and the chocolate chip piece is 1 15/16" square, punched with the corner punch only. So pretty!

Here is the scrapbook page, and it is so pretty IRL!!! I got the idea for the bottom of the page from , and changed the top to make it my own! It showcases the new punches from the Occasions mini and from the Sale-A-Bration catalog. They take some practice, but once you've played with them for about half an hour, it all comes together and they are fabulous!

This is a close up of the page corner. I laid the hearts on the pretty in pink strip, then popped the word strip up with dimensionals only on the ends, then positioned it where I wanted it on the corner, adhered it, then trimmed the edges hanging over the page off. I did sponge the cut off edges to match the sponged sides of the pretty in pink CS strip. Such a fun page! I love looking at it without pictures! Can't wait for Valentines Day so I can get pictures for it :)
