Wisteria Cottage Gift Set

Welcome to the Club Scrap Wisteria Collection Blog Hop! To go back to Club Scrap Creates for the start of the Hop.

This time I have a three piece Wisteria Collection gift set including a pen, journal, and a cottage fronted shadow box.  All are project kits from Club Scrap and were made during Club Scraps'  Virtual Summer Camp over the past four weeks. The whole goal of Summer Camp is to complete pages, cards, or projects in a friendly competition.

The cottage is the cover of a shadow box made with the Club Scrap Cape Cod Project Seaside Memory Box Project Kit.

The roof is made of grunge paper and kraft glassine wrinkled and stained with Distress Ink Walnut.  The details are from waxed linen and the Martha Stewart Vintage Floral punch.

Here is a detail of the Wisteria vine made with stamps on tissue paper crinkled and applied with matte medium.  The windows and door are covered with CS neutral basics paper, backed with Wisteria lavender paper and Wisteria ribbon curtains.
This is the inside shadow box: 
  Starting a the top is a mini flower pot using Wisteria Ribbon and colored paper flowers with pearl centers.  The easel, upper right, is made using a Wisteria collection cutout, and Wisteria hand embossed paper colored with white gelato. The lower level has a mini album with an ATC on the cover.  The ATC was made using Wisteria collection stamp, lattice stencil with molding paste, and word "hope" (for ATC details see yesterday's post). The bottle is from Idea-ology and hanging inside are beaded flowers, and a CS charm (Made with Love).

 The journal also has an ATC on the cover with the Wisteria stamp "Listen" and accompanying quote.  The flowers are from the Wisteria collection and have been stamped with birds and music from CS Spring Chorus collection.  Additional flowers and flower centers are punched out of Wisteria hand embossed paper colored with gold gelato. 
The journal is based on a YouTube Club Scrap Stitch Bound Book Tutorial.  The journal pages are stitched together and the binding is open. Lavender Wisteria paper is stamped with Wisterias and a brick pattern, then edge punched for the inside facing paper.

The pen gift set is the Club Scrap Milestones Stamper Project. It is covered in Wisteria paper and accented with Wisteria hand embossed paper colored with gold gelato. The box is finished with a Wisteria cutout and rhinestones.

Wisteria ATCs

For a challenge using mini art work on a larger project I made these ATCs using the Club Scrap Wisteria Collection.   The challenge was part Club Scraps'  Virtual Summer Camp called Pro-Scrapbooks League (PSL) over the past four weeks. The whole goal of PSL is to complete scrapbook pages, cards, or projects in a friendly competition.

Here is the ATC step by step process:
1) The background heavy white paper was marbled by wiping in Faber-Castel Pitt pens and in light blue & white sprayed with water.

2) Next green mist was used on Club Scrap text weight paper.  The paper was then torn into small pieces and applied with matte medium.  The “grass” was finished by spreading some dark green gelato over it and rubbing in with a finger. 

3) Vines and leaves were stamped along the edge using Wisteria Collection stamps.  A little matching gelato was rubbed onto each flower image. 

4)  Next the Wisteria stencil and light molding paste were used to make a lattice over the flower images.  Afterwards the paper was trimmed into three ATCs.


5) Finally Wisteria flowers were stamped on white paper and coated with Glossing Accents before cutting out and adhering each ATC.  Small leaves were cut out of the remaining “grass” papers and adhered with matte medium to the top of each wisteria bundle. Each was finished with a stamped word.
Come back tomorrow, July 31, for the Club Scrap Wisteria Collect Blog Hop to see how I incorporated these ATCs into larger projects.
