An APeeling Advent Calendar

Hi Crafty friends! I hope everyone is enjoying the winter weather. Here is upstate NY it's been cold and snowy. I'm thinkin we're in for a white Christmas!
I've been wanting to make advent calendar and finally found a design I like. I made a book style with 12 boxes on each side of the book.


The front sentiment is from the Club Scrap Watercolor Christmas unmounted rubber stamps. I embossed the image with black and gold embossing powder.




The covers are 7"x 9" chipboard with a 2 1/2" wide spine. I covered the chipboard with card stock in the way you would to make a book. 
To make the boxes I cut 24 pieces of card stock to 4" x 7".


Score on the long side 1", 3" 4" and 6"
Score on the short side 1" and 3"
Snip and fold as shown above. I used a 1" circle punch on the left edge for easy opening of the boxes. All folded up the boxes measure 2" x 2" x 1". Perfect for candy or little gifties!


I decorated the fronts of the boxes with various papers and layers of punched shapes. I stamped the numbers in different ink colors.


 I scrambled up the order of the numbers so it's more fun to find the boxes for each day.


I used Club Scrap Bookbinding glue in a needle tipped applicator to attach the boxes to the covers.


The boxes open up from different sides too-just to make it more fun!


I decorated the inside spine with patterned card stock and some wooden snowflakes from my stash.
I'll think I'll be making a bunch of these-they'll make perfect gifts!

Have a great day!

Club Scrap Trattoria Blog Hop

Hey there! I'm so glad you joined us for the Club Scrap Trattoria Blog Hop and Linky Party! If you're following along in order you should have just come from Tricia's Blog.
This month's Trattoria collection is about food! Pizza, pasta! Woo hoo!


I decided to make a set of ATC's in a 4" x 4" custom made pizza box.
I found a great tutorial for the pizza box from Pootles-she makes the best boxes!


I used the unmounted rubber stamped images for the inside top of the box. I colored in the images with Prismacolor colored pencils.


I decorated the bottom of the pizza box with the embellishments cutaparts.


I made 11 Artist Trading Cards to go in the box.


Here's the other side of the ATCs.


The Love Charm and ribbon are both available with the Trattoria collection.

Your next stop along the hop is Hetty.

Have a great day!

Club Scrap November Artist Team Challenge

Hello my friends! It's time again for another Club Scrap Artist Team Challenge! If you've just come from Hetty's Blog then you're in the right place. The theme this month was to use elements from at least 3 different kits for our projects. We could use papers, stamps and embellishments. I made 3 different wall hangings from some large metal tags I found at the craft store.


I used at least 3 different kits on each metal tag.


I got these at Joann Fabrics for less than $2! Of course I used a coupon! They measure 4" x 6" and are nice and heavy.


For this tag I used:
Paper from Orchard
Unmounted rubber stamped images from Reunion and Color me Happy
Fiber from Sunflower
Coins from Cherry Blossom
I can't remember what kit the wood word was from.
I used black embossing powder on the tree image from Reunion.


For this tag I used:
Unmounted rubber stamped images from Garden Shed, Paris Flea Market and Vintage Botany
The ribbon is Club Scrap but I can't remember what collection it's from.
The wooden leaves are from my stash and I colored them in with a aqua pen and stamp ink.


I used white embossing powder and the word stamp from Paris Flea Market for the background. I colored in the flowers stamped image from Vintage Botany with an aqua pen and stamp ink. The bees are from a stamp and die cut set from my stash.


Here I used:
Papers from Color Me Happy, Paradise, Woven Strands and Creative License
Unmounted rubber stamp images from Lagoon, Paradise, Enchanted Forest and Dahlia.
I don't remember which kit the ribbon is from.


I used a sparkly embossing powder on the stamped bubbles image from Lagoon on the background. I used the dragonfly masking stencil and daubed on Distress Oxide ink over printed paper from Color Me Happy collection.
I used a dragonfly stamp and die set from my stash.

Some of the elements I used aren't available anymore but I tried to link up all the items that were.
This was a really great idea and it was fun to mix and match all the collections.

Hop on over to Roni's blog to see what she made using 3 different kits!

Have a great day!

Challenge Card CAS(E) this Sketch #246

Hi my friends! I played along at Challenge blog CAS(E) this Sketch #246 today. I used the new Club Scrap Trattoria collection to make my card.


Here's the sketch


I used Distress Oxides in 3 different colors for the background. I daubed them on and spritzed with water.  I stamped those really cute pizza images from the unmounted rubber stamps with the Trattoria collection. I love that sentiment too! Peeking behind the sentiment is an image made with the Trattoria Grazie Stencil. I daubed in Distress Oxide Walnut Stain but ended up covering it with the sentiment.

Have a great day!

Club Scrap Artist Team YouTube Challenge

Hello my crafty friends! I'm so happy you're hopping along on the Club Scrap Artist Team YouTube challenge. If you've come from Hetty's blog then you're in the right place. The Artist Team challenge this month is to visit the Club Scrap YouTube channel, choose a video tutorial with a technique that inspired us, then make a project inspired by that video.


I found a video for this Mini Gift Box. 


I used the October Scandinavia collection to complete my project.


And I made a set of 6 - 4" x 4" cards to go in it.


They fit perfectly inside!


I saw another YouTube video on the channel for Three in a Row Stamping and decided to try it too!


The owl and sentiment are images from the Greeting unmounted rubber stamps available with the collection. 


The sentiment on this card is from the embellishments cut-aparts available with the collection.


I used white embossing powder on this Jumbo unmounted rubber stamped image and heat set it.


The sentiments with this collection are so cute!


I used embossing powder on the flower image too.

Keep hopping and see what Roni found on the Club Scrap YouTube channel.

Have a great day!
