CSS Book Club - January

The ladies are really getting into our new swap.  We are doing a Circle Journal...a page a month.  Each person takes another person's journal home and does a page.  The next month we will swap again.  So far, we have done the cover, which includes the theme of our journal and one page. Here are a few pictures. 

Alicia made this gorgeous sign for Elena and Charity Wings.

Elena, Jim, Kathren

Jim, Senior VP of Product Development for Provo Craft, was our guest for the evening.   He shared that Provo Craft will be introducing something amazing at CHA.  We tried to get the big secret out of him,
but he wouldn't budge.

All he said was, "Virtual, Personal & Digital". Hmmm!

He gave us a presentation on the Imagine machine, which is much like the Cricut except that it not only cuts, but it also prints in color.  You can use a white sheet of paper and make your cutouts any color you like.
He generously gifted us with Cricut Cartridges and Imagine Cartridges.

Returning Book Club member Debby shared an altered book that she made at
Royalty Over the Rainbow. 

Cards made by Alicia from last month's kit.

Kathren made a collaged basket from last month's kit. 
If you're at CHA, watch for it on Elena's arm.

Welcome to another new member, Suzi, who is a wonderful photographer. 
She shared her gorgeous cards.

This month's kit includes, papers from 7 Gypsies, ribbons, bling, rub-ons, and fabric letters.  The letters aren't suppose to spell anything in particular.  There are three letters and you can use them one at a time as the beginning of a word.

Thanks to Kathren who worked tirelessly, our make and take included a fabric, Cricut cutout of a crown.  First she used Heat N Bond on the fabric.  Then she put it through the Cricut machine.  We used the crown on a distressed card.

Gentle Reminder of items you may wish to bring next month:
  • Projects you've been working on
  • Finished project from Book Club kit
  • Tool kit, including scissors, glue and a pen or pencil
  • A snack to share
Things to remember:
  • New 3 month cycle and next meeting starts February 16th at 6:30.
  • New Book - TBD
