Club Scrap Die Cutter’s Blog Hop

Printers Tray July 2011 SM
I have joined with friends of mine from Club Scrap in a Blog Hop featuring the products of Club Scrap, using the die cutting tool of your choice. As my project, I chose to assemble a 7 Gypsies Printer Tray with the intention of using it as a changing seasonal decoration in our home. This first tray will focus on summer, featuring July which happens to include our wedding anniversary. All of the components used represent important details from our life together. You can click on any of the images in order to see the detail in a larger format.
Butterfly Detail
All cardstock used is from Club Scrap. Kits utilized are All That Glitters, Americana, Musical Interlude and Scholarship. Rubber stamp images from Club Scrap are from Americana, Fiesta, To You With Love and Written Word kits. Some were stamped with pigment ink in copper and the others were stamped using watercolor Gelatos. The majority of my cut embellishments were cut on the Silhouette Digital Cutting tool. The scallops were cut with a Spellbinders die and the hearts and birthday candle with a Quickutz die, both in the Cuttlebug. My rosette was white cardstock cut on the Silhouette with red and blue lines added with my Bic Mark-it pens. Glimmer mists and Stickles were used on a number of images. Most edges were inked with Distress Ink in Antique Linen. Glossy accents were applied to the star-shaped cardstock buttons to give them the appearance of real buttons. Star brads and baseball buttons from my unidentified stash. The number 18 is from Tim Holtz Grunge Board.
Rosette Detail
Birdhouse Herringbone Detail
Thanks for visiting me and I now ask you to please hop on over to my Cape Cod Scrapper friend Julie to see what Club Scrap goodness she has created.

I have also posted this piece at the Flutter By Wednesday site to share the love with a larger audience. A butterfly hovers in my Printers Tray. Have shared, too, with Simon Says Stamp because their challenge this week is Sparkle and Shine. I want EVERYONE to share in the love of Club Scrap.

  5. I probably say this a lot, but i think this is my favorite work of art from you to date! That will change as you are always producing such gems. This is absolutely fabulous. Every detail perfectly chosen and placed! Customizing that rosette as bunting is pure genius and an idea i will for sure be borrowing. Thanks for continuing to inspire me sis!
