Club Scrap Succulents Artist Team Challenge-Number and Letters Stencils.

Hello my friends! Welcome to the Club Scrap Succulents Artist Team Challenge. You should have just come from Roni's blog if you're following along on the hop.
This month Club Scrap tasked us with using number and letter stencils on our projects. There are upper and lower case alphabet and number stencils. With the Succulents Deluxe Kit there is a Jacob's Ladder mini album kit. I thought this was the cutest thing so decided to make one for the Artist Team Challenge. Of course I had to alter it a bit to make it my own! :)

I followed the basic instructions for assembling the project. Tricia has a great video tutorial on the Club Scrap website and YouTube.

I made mine into a recipe book. I added pull tab recipe cards on each panel. The recipe cards slide into a pocket on each side of the panels.

There are 12 recipe cards-1 on each side of each panel.

In the original instructions you cut 6 each of burgundy and green panels to matte onto the chipboard panels. I cut notches with a  1/2" circle punch on each of the 12 pieces and used these as pockets for the recipe cards.

I used 1/8" Skor tape on 3 sides. I used the narrow tape so I could make the recipe cards as wide as possible. 

I cut 12 pieces of white cardstock 2 7/8" x 6 1/2". Then I stamped each piece with the unmounted rubber large succulent images from the kit with green and burgundy ink. Then I stenciled on the words - some with the green ink, some with burgundy. They fold up and slide into the pockets on each panel.

I folded them in half. At the fold line I stapled a small piece of ribbon so I could pull the card out of the pocket.

On the back side of the card I drew lines for the recipe. I love how this little book moves when you hold it up-its like magic! So fun!

Now travel on to Hetty's blog to see what she's done with the stencils!
Have a great day!
