August QuicKutz Club

Club Kits are ready for pick up!

This month's project highlights embossing templates with dies.  Did you know that some of Lifestyle Crafts embossing folders compliment their dies??  I took the Fellow Embossing folders with dies and made up these cards.  Just embossing paper can make a huge impact on your projects~ taking them from okay to WOW!! Try this yourself, you'll love the look!
(dies used: Fellow Embossing Folders, Mustaches, Tape-It Kit and Glasses (exclusive club die from 2012))

Die of the Month:
This isn't an exclusive die this month as there was an issue getting the club dies made and sent to us in a timely manner.  Lifestyle Crafts has given out this die set in place ($15 value) ~ not too bad!!
Have you used the Detailz dies yet??  They are awesome for embossing and die cutting! Makes a great effect on your projects and also you don't have to emboss, you can just use the dies as is if desired.

Some project samples:

easy card

This card is super easy to make!  Take the Tape It Kit die set and create your own strips of washi tape from the Shape n Tape sheets or use washi tape rolls that you have and just lay the tape across white cardstock base.  Add a sentiment to front of card and you have a cute, simple card!!  Look for this kit soon as a Project Idea Kit to Go in store.

My son has a birthday party to go to today so had to make up a card!  Do you have stickers left over after creating your projects??  What better way to use them up than on cards!  I took out the sticker sheet from Echo Park ~ A Boy's Life and found some cute stickers still waiting to be used and would be perfect for boy cards.  Try using up your stickers this way!

Back to School

It's hard to believe that it's Back to School time!!  My kids go back Tuesday and I'm ready!!  Labeled all school supplies and updated organizing frames. Great thing about these frames is that last years headers give me a great head start to scrap their year. I placed it in the Project Life page protectors and just need to add photos from the year and awards then slip it in their books. Love the Project Life concept!!
