Here we are with another Club Scrap Blog Hop.
This month's kit is called
and as I love mine this is such a wonderful
kit to use all the pictures I have from my
hydrangea in my garden.
I hope you have arrived here from the wonderful
Tricia with her blog of wonderful and efficient ideas.
If along the way you get lost, you can find all
20 other participands (oh my so much
inspiration!!) at the Club Scrap Create Blog.
I came up with a little project after I found these
very cheap spools in a dollar store:
I made a card and a spool stand and will share with you
how I did this.
The card is made from half of a scrap page
(6x12 inch folded) with stamping and pictures
coming together like this.
For the hydrangea stamp I used 3 different
stamp pades: Club Scrap amethyst, moss and
lagoon.Just use the pads directly onto the stamp
and stamp to the paper.
For the spool picture stand I used
2 spools with different width size.
I cut strips of one inch
for the top spool
and 1,5 inch for the bottom spool.
I have punched some holes on the borders of the strips
and sewn them together with wax thread.
For the top spoolI just used one decorative strip
from the emellishment papers and added a sentiment.
The beginning is stapled to the spool with a tacker
(thank you Ray for the idea!)
The bottom strip is made out of 3 strips of 1,5
by 12, all sewn together. Then decorated with stamps,
flowers and little hydrangea pictures
(I printed the pictures contact size).
Here you see the strips rolled on to the spools.
I made an easy closure. Just tie a ribbon around it
and it will all stay on place.
Now you might have noticed there is something
at the bottom too. Yes, I made a little easy circle booklet.
The largest circle is 2,75 inch.
I used some circle spelbinders to cut out all the
circles. For this booklet i used 6 larger and 6
slightly smaller circles. To cunstruct the booklet is easy.
Put a strip of double sided tape in the middle
on all the largest circles and lay down the ribbon on top.
Make sure there is a half an inch gap between all
the circles. On top you will glue the smaller circles.
I decorated those before I glued them on top.
Here you see the finished booklet. On the last one
I added a scalloped circle that will be the end page and
looks cute underneath the stand.
Here a more close up picture of the
booklet. The sentiment is a cut up
stamped one from the UM stamps
that come with this kit.
The flowers are all stamped and cut
and decorated with a tiny sticky pearl that
also came with this kit.
This is the decorated bottom of the stand.
Here you see the booklet folded harmonica wise
onto the spool.
And the booklet is closed with the ribbon that is
through te middle of the book.
On top of the spooli stamped in the same technique
as on the card with the multi colors. The picture stand
I took out of an old one I never used.
Well, this is it for today
on my blog, but there is so much more to see.
