September Scrapbook and Card Class

These are the cool class projects we did for this month.  First up are travel scrapbook pages.  This months technique was using stencils and modeling paste for added dimension.  I love the skyline border.  Supplies by MFT

September Card Class

September Card 1

This was a sweet fun card using SU Christmas Washi Tape and More Merry Messages.  I like how the sentiment goes with the look of a wrapped gift.  The bow was used with Silver glimmer paper and MFT bow die.

September Card 2

This beautiful vintage card was totally cased from Amy Rohl.  All supplies by MFT

September Card 2 Inside

This is the inside of the card.  It is so cute it could stand alone as another card.

September Card 3

Next up is this darling gift card holder.  No surprise to the recipient since it’s on the front.  This was cased from Barbara Anders.  All supplies by MFT

September Card 4

and of course, we couldn’t forget a Thanksgiving card.  This was cased from Julie Dinn.  All supplies by MFT.

Bonus Card

We did a bonus card that was cased from the SU Holiday Catty.  Thank you Sue D. for providing the materials.  What a fun night.

Mixed Media

Mixed Media Scrapbook cover

I had a fun time experimenting with mixed media on the cover of this album.  This started out as a plain white piece of chipboard.  It was made by adding layers of textures using die cuts, stencils, cheesecloth and stamped tissue paper.  I also added pearl paint, gesso and mod podge with a final dusting of Dazzling Diamonds to complete the cover.  I was finally able to use my Zutter Binding Machine to bring it all together.

I love the uniqueness and textures of mixed media especially since there’s no right or wrong way about it.  I can’t wait to try it out on scrapbook pages and more.

Supplies:  MFT, PTI, Stampin’ Up and Zutter Binding

Envelope Punch Board

This is so cool.  SU came out with a customizable envelope board.  Create envelopes in 66 different sizes.  See details below.


  • Available September 1, 2013
  • It creates totally customizable envelopes in up to 66 different sizes (not to mention a million different color and pattern options depending on the paper you want to use). Even tried and true envelope sizes will only take you moments to create!
  • It’s super easy to use; it will go over as a huge wow when you demonstrate it at your events and your customers see it in action. It looks intimidating at first glance, but when they see that all you have to do is measure for the first punch and from there you just turn and score they’ll go crazy (in a good way).
  • It’s small and lightweight; this makes it easy for you to take it to your events and show it. It’s super portable and easy to store. It’s small and light enough that you could use it while watching a soccer match, at a park, at a friend’s for craft night-anywhere.
  • It even has a slick scoring tool as well as a punch that lets you create rounded corners on your envelopes.
  • It’s easy to keep it all together; the stylus storage compartment and two punches are designed into the tool so you don’t have a bunch of little pieces to keep track of (even the instructions are printed right on the tool so you won’t lose them!).
  • The price is terrific-especially for a tool that does so much!
  • It will be in next year’s annual catalog, so it’s here to stay.
