August Crop Club



For this month’s Crop Club, I used our new Soiree Paper Pack and Soiree Embellishments.  This collection is full of bright fun prints and super cute stickers and embellishments.  It’s great for photos from birthdays or any sort of celebration.  I used Noreen Smith‘s page sketch below as the layout for these pages.

March 2013 SOTM

This sketch does not have a cutting guide, but the concept is simple.  From your sheet of designer paper, punch two borders and then cut the remaining portion in half.


For this layout, I punched borders with our Original Border Maker and Crown Cartridge on both the right and left sides of the blue paper.  I then cut the blue paper in half.  The white borders punched with our Ocean Waves Cartridge add extra pizzazz.



I used our Original Border Maker with our new Lace Scallop Cartridge to punch two borders from the pink floral paper.  I used the reverse side of the borders which is green with a slight print.  To help the green borders really pop, I layered raspberry lace scallop borders behind them.


For this layout, I cut the green print paper in half.  I arranged the pieces vertically on the pages in order to follow the pattern on the green paper.  Two raspberry pink ocean waves borders and some embellishments complete the layout.



July Crop Club

Our new Cool Serenity Collection is perfect for beach, lake and river photos.  The shades of blue and green are beautiful, and the embellishments are some of my favorites.  I used this collection and the page sketch below from Noreen Smith for my July Crop Club.





The border on this layout was made with our Original Border Maker System with our new Grass and Ocean Waves Cartridges.



I used Foam Squares to create the layered Ocean Waves border at the bottoms of these pages.



The grass border at the bottom was punched from the green cardstock in the Travel Solid 12×12 Cardstock Paper Pack. This pack of cardstock coordinates perfectly with the Cool Serenity Collection.
