One... Two... Three...




I have another card for you...
I wanted to make something fun and cute...

Have you ever wondered how to use your little stamps?
Well this is my solution...
I cut them out, pop them up and place them in a circle...

I think it works out great...

Announcing the Newest SBC DT Members!

7

Woohoo! Please welcome the newest crafters to Scrapbook Blessings Club.


 So without further adieu, first up is....


Hello, I'm Nancy from a small town in Saskatchewan, Canada! My husband and I have lots of fun together in our empty nest. I've always been a crafter but only started papercrafting about five years ago. I enjoy it all; cards, layouts, mini albums, mixed media, altered items...ALL of it! Yet every once in a while I just have to make a doll or teddy bear. I'm very happy to be joining the DT at Scrapbook Blessings Club. I love to try new things and to make new friends!  :o)


Blog: 



I'd like to share a card I made for the May challenge.
Please click on my blog link above to read all the details.




 Hello! My name is Anakaren Ponce, I´m 24 and I´m from México, I live in a city called Monterrey. 
I´m a High school teacher and a full time mom of a lovely little boy. I also run my own bussiness, a 
print shop, where I make wedding and other social events´ invitations.
 I love all kind of crafts but papercrafting is what I love the most, specially scrapbooking; I love keeping my memories in layouts, mini albums and smash books, I want the future generations 
of the family to know our history in the future and in the middle of all the work I have, scrapbooking makes me feel  happy and relaxed! 
I started scrapbooking around 10 years ago but I didn´t know it was scrapbooking and I didn´t have speciality materials because they were hard to find, but 3 years ago I finally had access to all 
kinds of materials so officially I started then. My family is my life and I love spending time with them, my father, my mother, my sister and my little boy.
 I´m a very cheerful and positive person, and love to teach, help and share.


Hello!  My name is Karyn Siegel.  I am married, work full time, and live in Pennsylvania.  I have been crafting since I was a tiny girl.  I love all types of crafting but I really enjoy documenting the everyday moments of life through photography and scrapbooking.  I make all types of paper crafts including mini books, cards, layouts, and recently started with some mixed media projects.  I am very excited to be a part of the Scrapbook Blessings Club Design Team.  

You can follow me on my blog littlebirdiejunction.blogspot.com



My name is Yvonne S. Morentin. I am a mother to 3 awesome kids (one Neuro-typical and two with Autism). I live in California, in the IE. I have been creating, crafting and expressing myself in art, since I could sit up and sit still, thanks to my aunt. 

I don't really consider myself, just one thing when it comes to creating. I love trying anything I can get my hands on. I love to scrapbook, I have twenty three years of them...lol. I love to make gifts and I spend a great deal of time making cards, as they are what my kids call my Bonsai tree. 

Creating, crafting and art, is how I express myself.

My Blog: 



Hello my name is krystina Garzon I am 26 years old and I live in Covina CA. I am happily married to my best friend, my rock and we have 4 beautiful children 1 boy and 3 girls, two of my babies are disabled so a lot of my time goes to taking care of them. 

Crafting has played a huge roll in my life ever since I had my first child and is still now, this is my escape from stress. I do all sorts of crafting from card making, scrapbooking, and party stuff , which comes in handy when time for my kids bday parties.

I look forward to creating some awesome goodies here for all of you to see thank you.



There you have it, five new SBC faces bringing you craft goodness!!!

Thank you for stopping by and saying hi to the new gals.  Also, you can join up to our Facebook group: Scrapbook Blessings Club for more fun, games, inspiration, tips and techniques. Thank you for stopping by and have a blessed day!

Hi Friends,
For today's hop I want to show you a project that I made for my sister. Her and the family left for Africa two years ago and is coming back in 5 weeks on Father's Day. She worked as a teacher/missionary.  So...yeah, I'm a little emotional right now.

She asked me to make some thank you cards to give to those that support Martin's 4 Africa.  But, I got to thinking, thank you cards are nice and all, but I wanted something that people can see everyday.  And when they do, they might be reminded to say a little prayer for her, Joe and the kiddos.  I came up with refrigerator magnets. It is something that people will see when they head to the fridge. She loved that idea.  

Here are the magnets that I made for my sis ...



You will need:
  • 3x3 chipboard square ( I got a poster board sheet of chipboard at the craft store, we made 50 of these from that sheet)
  • Mod Podge
  • 1 piece of 3x3 cardstock 
  • 1 piece of 3x3 Pattern Paper
  • Adhesive
  • Nail File
  • Distress Ink Pad
  • Embellishments- punches, stamps, die cuts, etc.
  • Magnet strips (can get in a roll or on a sheet at the craft store)
  • The Africa shape is just a clip art that I downloaded and printed from the computer. 

  • First, Adhere the card stock and pattern paper to the front and back (great way to use up scraps) on the chipboard square
  • File the edges, this will help the paper stay on the chip board.
  • The heart is from Cricut Craft Room Basics, cut @ .5" and the sandals are from Life's a Beach and cut at 1".
  • I wrote the sentiments on the front with a calligraphy pen and ink the edges and sides with the distress ink, 
  • After you decorate the front of your chipboard, do the back if you would like 
  •  You are going to Mod Podge with a couple of coats 
  • (I did 3-4 coats and it is well worth the extra time).
  • The Sandals represent the money (over $2000 that the kiddos raised for Shoes 4 Africa)
  • The heart is over Ethiopia, where they will be
  • Their Faith, Hope and Love is what has gotten them this far in this calling on their lives.
This is the back. 
                                 
As you can see, I decorated that back with this cute sentiment stamp. And using my Just Right 15pt. font set, I was able to sign them Martins 4 Africa.
Everyone was amazed that these are chipboard/paper and not wood.  With the Mod Podge texture and the extra coats, they are so sturdy and will last for a long time.

I hope you were inspired with this project.  Very easy to do, makes great gifts. Other ideas, are using photos of people or places that you have been, making personalized magnets to hold the kiddos school projects or even a to-do/shopping list.

ps: here are the "thank you" that I did previously for my sis. I used Life's a Beach and welded the letters together.  I attached with a brad to swing the top sandal over.




I hope your enjoyed today's project too.
