Aspen Cabin in the Woods

Welcome to the Club Scrap Aspen Blog Hop!

As soon as I received my Club Scrap Aspen Collection I started to work on my cozy Aspen cabin.  The cabin has a classic A frame look with "logs" flanking the doorway made from the wood paper in the Aspen collection.

The pattern is the November Bird Abode: Home Tweet Home from Laura Denison, but I took it in a completely different direction from the original. I added wood accents through out.  The handmade paper made a beautiful textured roof.  The charm is from the Aspen Greetings to Go set.

Inside there is room for a tall mini album and a ledge to put in a pen. I made the mini album using another one of Laura Dension's patterns, the Envelope Bypass Mini Album using #10 envelopes.  The cover features a skeleton leaf sandwiched between acrylic sheets, a cut apart, an image stamped on canvas, and Aspen button tied with linen thread.  The binding uses paper clips and gathered Aspen ribbon.

Inside are tons of pockets and tags. It was great having all the Aspen cut aparts and stickers to decorate the internal pages. I used a selection of punches for accenting the edges of the pockets: EKSucess English Ivy, and Martha Stewart Flourish, Flourish lace, and Cherish.    I can't wait to get my pictures in this one.

Thank you for stopping by!  I loved the aspen collection so much that I have another Aspen project in work and I'm planning another post by New Years.

You can return to Club Scrap Creates for all the hop links or you can continue on to Janet at Dishing with Janet to see the next post in the hop.

Happy Crafty New Year,

Gnome Goodies

Welcome to the Gnome for the Holiday Blog Hop

When I think about holidays I think of baking.  I get out those familiar family favorite recipes and make them fresh with my own children.      As I opened the plan text file to print my recipes, I thought how about I give these recipes a holiday make over.  And then comes out Club Scrap's Gnome for the Holiday…..
I used my digital software and CS Gnome digital kit to make an 8 ½ by 11 page to hold two 4 by 6 recipe cards. 

Then I printed them on cardstock.  Now I can send the new recipe cards to everyone in my family, too.  
You next stop is Debbie at DebDuzScrappin'. To get back the start off the hop go to Club Scrap Creates.

Happy Crafting,
