And we'll also use another stamp set to add more faux stitching to the layouts:
DID YOU KNOW that if you come to club each month, in a year you'd have 36 layouts completed and awaiting your photos??? Each month we complete THREE 2-page layouts! I try to make each one different enough from one another that you can use them separately, or you can use them as a larger group to document an event.
The Basic kit is $20, and the Workshop on the Go kit is $35. You can purchase your kit by using the links on the side of this blog, or go to www.jennifercox.ctmh.com and join the Club Gathering at the bottom. If you can't make it on the actual Club date, you can always order a kit and I will cut your pieces for you.
Colors for Stella are: Cocoa, Olive, Lagoon, Sunset, Colonial White, and Tulip. A great way to build your inks is to purchase your favorite colors that go with each month's layout--for Stella I would recommend purchasing Cocoa, Lagoon, and Sunset.
Other products that coordinate with Stella are: Stella Complements Canvas Shapes, Bohemian Assortment, Wooden Badge Buttons, Designer Cocoa Collection Ribbon, Fashionista stamp set, Dimensional Hearts, and so many more!!

Part of our registration included FIVE FREE STUDIO J layouts! Corporate sent us step by step instructions to complete these 5 layouts, each one featured a different technique. Being the last minute procrastinator that I am, as these needed to be submitted by April 18th....I started them on April 17th! I spent a day just focusing on these layouts--and generally Studio J layouts do NOT take me that long to do. But as I was following instructions and trying new techniques, it did take me a little longer.
I'm going to go through each layout to tell you what the techniques were:
1-Florentine Kit: using text boxes to add card stock, using a single photo in multiple photo wells, layering My Stickease to form a single image, and using multiple text boxes to mix fonts
2-Superhero Kit: creating your own argyle B&T paper (I skipped this in the interests of time), customizing kit by adding different colors (also skipped since I didn't do the argyle), and rotating a page.
3-Cruisin' Kit: using quick-title tool to create a border, clustering My Stickease behind page elements, adding photo mats
4-Stella Kit: frame photo with stitching, cluster embellishments and My Stickease
5-Pemberley Kit: distressing photos with text boxes ( I skipped this), splitting My Stickease across both pages, using an embellishment to create a border.

I have actually misplaced my Stella club layouts that I have already finished...so I've been wandering around yelling STELLA!!! (I had to mention it, sorry!) Seriously, I did misplace them and really hope I find them soon. I know I completed the featured layout (above) and then I also did the second one...and can't find them anywhere. Perplexing....UPDATED: I found them! All of a sudden it occurred to me that I had worked on those layouts at the Scrappers' Anonymous Getaway in January--so I found the stack of layouts from that crop and presto! There they were! So tomorrow I will take photos of the layouts that we'll be making and post them. I should also be able to create the third layout tonight.
Club will take place on May 11th--this is one week EARLIER than usual. This is because I am jetting off to Florida the following week to attend the Scrapbook Expo. My dear friend Penny invited me to come down and so I am going--so excited! Of course I will be working at the Somerset Scrapbook Expo in June but I guess I can't get enough of Expo this year. Pricing is still the same: Basic Kit is $20...the Workshop on the Go kit is $35. Don't forget that you can add on the Dotty For You paper pack for $5 if you add onto your club order and get it up to $35.

This special pack is ALL card stock weight patterned paper, so if you want to add some coordinating card stock, colors are creme brulee, sunset, smoothie, lagoon, sweet leaf, and grey wool. I also put it with desert sand and LOVED the result! Buttercup yellow would look great too

All patterned paper! No card stock in this pack, it's just all delicious B&T! My favorite is the tag sheet--the second one from the top in the right column. It is adorable! The chevrons are also really trendy right now, and the butterflies make me smile!
You can begin purchasing this paper pack for $5 on April 17th with a $35 order from the current Idea Book, and it will be available until May 31st. ALL new consultants signing up with the company between April 1 and May 31 will also receive this for free in their kits.

I haven't had a chance to make artwork with this stamp set yet, but there is a CTMH blog hop that happens on the first of every month. If you'd like to check it out, start with one of the most talented artists in CTMH, Annette Green.
