Cool Scrapbook Stuff Book Club

We have some exceptionally talented ladies in Book Club.  Here is just a small example of what we see regularly from these fabulous ladies.


Alicia made this adorable Valentines holder from our Book Club kit.


Alicia also made this BE MINE banner.  Cute, cute!


Tricia created this fabulous dimensional heart.  Yes, shredded paper is one of the embellishments. 


Tricia made this adorable heart charm with pearls.  We see a Make and Take in the future!


Tricia made this “year at a glance” calendar.  Clever idea!











Yep!  Tricia again!  This is her beautiful “story board” canvas reminding her daily that she is working towards a goal. 



Kathren is on an owl kick and we are in love with her vintage fabric owl.  She always likes to use the kit from the previous month. 

There is some portion of the kit in this sweet faced owl.


Another cutie pie owl.  From one extreme to another.  Talk about mixed media! 

This is a work of art.



Cynthia got her paint brushes out this month and created this incredible canvas.  The heart is dimensional.  There are several layers of book paper and each page is painted.  Gorgeous!



Cynthia also made this bees was collage.  It’s as cute as a bee’s knees!












Kat took a class with Julie Nutting and created these cutie girl paper doll tags.


Kathren was busy.  Look at this precious LOVE banner. 

Wouldn’t you love to have this in your home.


Check out the cute felt heart on the banner.


Alma is in the process of creating a FAMILY mini album.  Love the colors.



Thank you to Alicia for the school boards.  I have already used mine. 

It makes crafting in bed so much easier. Ha

Book Club Crop–January 2012

We had a blast on Crop day.  This is a very comfortable group of ladies to spend time with.  Everyone does their own thing, whether it’s cropping, crafting, shopping, eating, or socializing.  It’s just a fun day.

Here's some of our pretty girls.
Kathren, Alma, Gaye and Cynthia

Glenna cutting and gluing!
Pam painting!
Deborah getting her canvas ready!
Pam going through her many pics.
Kristal what are you doing?  You look like you are getting away with something.
Patti working in her journal!
Lola and Nanci posing with the winged fashionista!
Ally working the papers!
Elena with the adorable snowmen that Lola made for each of us.  Thanks Lola.
Check out the food in the background.  Yes, we eat well at our crops.

Aweee!  The lovely Alma and Kathren snuggling for the camera.

Kathren made red velvet cake for our birthday girls, Alma and Peggie.

Gee Gee’s Book Club–New Year


We are still swapping our canvases.  I wish you could see them in person because they are really awesome!  Everyone is adding their own personality to each other’s canvas. 




This was our cute Make and Take.  Allyson’s flower turned out the way it was suppose to look.  Some of us definitely struggled.  A little practice would help.



Our kit this month included a fabulous, very vintage album book.  Everyone’s book of albums was different.  It will be so interesting to see how these books are altered by our wonderfully talented ladies.  We also received Gilded Mica Fragments by Stampendous, 3D Crystal Lacquer by Sukura Hobby Craft, and family oriented rub-ons.


Gentle Reminder of items you may want to bring next month:

  • Canvas Swap
  • Current book Stampington’s Art JournalingCVR_JRN0112_lg
  • Tool kit, including scissors, glue, a pen or pencil.
    • A snack to share
    • Camera

    Things to remember:

    • February is the 2nd month of a 4-month cycle and the meeting is Thursday, February 2nd, at 6:30, at Gee Gee's Stamp 'n' Stuff.
