I hold a monthly Crop Club where we gather to make 3 double-page layouts using one page sketch, one pack of paper and one pack of embellishments. Attendees only bring a few basic tools, and I provide CM’s newest tools for everyone to try.
In November, we made pages using our new Creative Memories Christmas Past Paper and Embellishments and the page sketch below by my friend, Noreen Smith. You can download this sketch with instructions and also view a video demonstration on Noreen’s Blog, Organized & Creative Mom.
This sketch made a super cute Halloween page and also beautiful Christmas pages. I incorporated our Garden Vine Punch and our new Snowflake Chain Cartridge for our Border Maker System on the layout below. I also added a photo mat from Beige Cardstock to the first page in order to have some of the beige color on both pages. It’s hard to see in the photo, but I did pen stitching around the reindeer embellishment to make it pop. I skipped journaling on these pages, but will add journaling to the next layouts.
On the pages below, I added photo mats and narrow strips from our Gold Shimmer Cardstock. I made the photo mat on the second page into a ribbon.
On the layout below, I added some leave embellishments punched from our Silver Shimmer Cardstock with our Maple Leaf and Leaf Trio Punches. These silver shimmer pieces really help to brighten up these pages.
Please contact me or visit my CM website to purchase any of these products. We’re taking a break from Crop Club in December, but will start back up in January. Please contact me if you’re in the Champaign-Urbana area and would like to join us.
