Club Scrap Digital™ (CSD) Now Available in Smaller Monthly Kits!

Here's more proof that Club Scrap™ listens to their members! Some members wanted just the pre-made digital layouts, some wanted only the digital papers and embellishments, and others wanted the whole kit 'n' kaboodle! Well now, you have three choices for membership! And three choices for individual kit purchases! They've even re-released the previous CSD kits in the new smaller versions!

This layout was created using the Farmer's Market 10/06 CS DigiLayout #7 with the Zero & Zero Font. It is a very quick layout and a lovely design to work with!

These two layouts were created using a portion of the Interior Designs 11/06 DigiLayout #19, DigiGoodies Xtra #19 (laminate brads) and the font Script MT Bold. In the left hand layout I adjusted the Hue & Saturation to change the colors of the layout, enhancing the pattern in the paper through the color shifts! The smaller blue version uses the original color scheme, which just wasn't a match to this pair of photographs! Changing the colors of the papers and embellishments is always a wonderful option to exercise and you may also easily add as many of the DigiGoodies that you like to a premade DigiLayout! This time around, I simply added some digital brads, but other times I've gone hog wild with alterations and additions!

You can also always work from scratch! The Artist's Trading Card shown to the right is one example! It uses mostly the Retro 9/06 CSD Free Trial Kit along with the ribbon from the Farmer's Market 10/06 CSD Kit. I went to to create the paint splattered background! (At that website, each move of your mouse will splatter digital paint all over your browser... click on your mouse to change colors!) I saved separate layers of the Pollock paint splatters and cut and pasted the textured CSD Paper into the shape of the splatters, added shadows, and adjusted the brightness to better fit my photograph! In "real life" I've matted a photographic print of the piece on actual papers from the kit and edged the photograph in Ranger's Black Soot Distress Ink!

The piece below made more use of a single printed paper and a coordinating transparency image from the same Retro 9/06 CSD Free Trial Kit. I copied the pattern within the foiled border image to create the page border and fill in the Transparency border images. I also used swatches of the paper, altering the Hue & Saturation to create the deeper shade of pink for my mats and finished the piece out with the Fabulous 50s font!

Made with Club Scrap Digital's Farmer's Market 10/06 Digital Kit. Club Scrap's ALSB Layout #11; "Zero & Zero" font; Digitally "chalked" edges from the Farmer's Market 10/06 DigiRap; Korean text translates to "girl" and "tiger";

The Written Word 11/05

The Written Word Card With Time and Space GoldThe Written Word 11/05 is such an elegant kit! There's even a gorgeous ink pad created for this kit by Stewart Superior... And the stencil for this kit is to die for! It works so well with dimensional paint, with ink, with anything your heart desires!

The card to the left is a 10 minute card that I created for an online challenge! It uses both the Cream and Medium Blackberry Papers from this kit as well as the Stewart Superior Memories Blackberry Ink Pad and both sheets of Unmounted Stamps from the kit. It also uses the Gold paper from Time & Space December 2004. I simply used Ranger's Cloudy Peri Sea Shells Ink Pad with a mixture of stamps to create a collaged background piece and then rubbed the Blackberry Ink Pad across the edges and into the Cream paper before stamping the sentiment onto the card. So simple, but such lovely colors and textures!

On these simple Flagbooks I used The Written Word's stencil along with Time & Space December 2004's Gold and Asian Artisan January 2004's Cream Frost papers. I applied Delta's Texture Magic Dimensional Paint in white through the stencil using a palette knife... it gives such a rich texture to the finished covers!

The Written Word and Time and Space FlagbookThe focal stamp was the Club Scrap Sr Expression Collage Stamp (now extinct) using Ranger's Black Soot Distress Ink and Gold Embossing Powder. The overall design for the book construction can be found via Club Scrap's wonderful episode of Flag Flip Book CDS-1739 Carol Duvall Show HGTV.

The cards shown below were created at Club Scrap's August 2006 Main Retreat duing Karen Wyngaard's Assembly Line Card Making Class, with 15 cards taught in total! These cards all use Let Me Count The Ways February 2006's Greetings To Go card kit along with plain white paper, Greetings For a Year Stickers, LMCTW 2/06 stamps, plus stencils from County Fair 7/04 and The Written Word's stencil!

The top card was made by simply applying ink through the stencil and along the edges with the ColorBox Stylus Tool and Sponge Tips while layering additional mats and a sticker onto the card base!
