Scandinavian Holiday Linky Party

Happy Holidays!

Welcome to my stop on the Club Scrap Scandinavian Holiday Linky Party.

Creating handmade cards is one of my favorite ways to celebrate the season!

Today I am sharing my holiday cards created with the Scandinavian Holiday Rubber stamps

Keep your holiday greetings simple, but sweet. Let me show you how.


Apply Carnation, Ocean and Leaf Inks to the ornament stamp. Embellish with a waxed linen thread bow on the top of each ornament.


Stamp the tree trio in Leaf ink. Embellish with tiny, multicolored gem stickers.


Add a red gem to the stamped reindeer nose to create an instant Rudolph.

Foam Adhesive Circles add a little dimension to the belt on this card front.


Add a colorful little pop with a marker in all the open areas of the stamped bird. 


Circle cut an opening through the card front and pane. Suspend a 1" circle punched snowflake with waxed linen thread inside the opening. 

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you!

Cutest Mini Calendar Refrigerator Magnet Ever!

Welcome to my stop on the Club Scrap Trattoria Blog Hop.

Refrigerator Magnet Upcycled with Club Scrap's Trattoria Collection

I've upcycled an old 3-1/4x4-1/4" refrigerator magnet with the Trattoria Quad print and Cutaparts.

Here's the recipe:

1. Trim the desired pattern from the Quad Print.

2. Brush Club Scrap's Bookbinding Glue onto an old refrigerator magnet and cover with the Quad Print.

3. Center a cutapart onto the magnet.

4. Print a mini calendar onto copy paper. I found this one on Pinterest.

5. Trim each month, stack, and bind together into a pad with Bookbinding Glue. Set aside to dry.

6. Attach the mini calendar and Fork Charm with Bookbinding Glue. Fill each mini bottle with salt, pepper, and other spices. Adhere the bottles to the top of the magnet with glue and wrap with Waxed Linen Thread.

"BAM!" (as Emeril would say). This is the cutest refrigerator magnet mini calendar ever!

Thanks for hopping with us. Next on the hop is Lilian at The Leaf Studio.

Bon Appetit!

Several Greetings In One

Welcome to my stop on the Club Scrap Scandinavia Blog Hop.

Card Folio Created With Club Scrap's Scandinavia Collection

I've created a card folio with the Scandinavia papers and rubber stamps. It measures 4x5.5" when closed.

This folio holds three folded cards. The pockets could also hold photos or gift certificates.

Here is a quick photo summary of the assembly:

Fabulous Folding Board

One of the many things shared at the 2017 Club Scrap Retreat was the Hammered Aged Copper Folding Board.

This super-sturdy board was a new medium for me to work with and wow, did I love it! It is perfect for all sorts of paper crafting construction projects. Pick up some in the Retreat "Pro Shop" soon as supplies are extremely limited.

Let's take a closer look at the folding board . . .

This paper product is 247 lb., making it heavier and more rigid than heavy cardstock, but lighter than matte board.

Card Folio

Check out Tricia's Card Folio Blog for the original detailed instructions on how to make this project. I decorated the cover and card set with the What A Ride stamps.

Gift Boxes

I created three ascending-sized boxes with the We R's Gift Box Punch Board. Simply tie the boxes together in a stack perfect for gift giving.

Card Box With Lid

This box was also inspired by Tricia's Vintage Botany Club Stamp Blog post. 

Gift Box Greeting Card

I've created this card design before. You might remember it from my Color Me Happy Blog Hop post


Memory Cube 

I had the pleasure of leading the Memory Cube workshop at this year's Club Scrap Retreat. The kit comes with all the pre-cut Folding Board and a handy video tutorial. The Folding Board sheets are in very limited supply. However, this fabulous kit is still available in the Retreat Pro Shop.

Thanks for taking the time to explore the many uses of Folding Board with me today.
