Sweet Tooth Remix Cards

Last week I shared layouts I made from the Sweet Tooth Remix collection. Today I'll show you how to transform that same collection into 24 greeting cards using Club Scrap card making formulas!

I started with the Color-blocked Card Formula Tricia shared for the Surprise blog hop. The formula makes ten cards from five sheets of paper.

All of the cards were made using papers from the kit, along with the Cutaparts and photo mats. I added baker's twine and stamped sentiments to some of the cards. The "low carb" sentiment is from the Trattoria Jumbo stamp sheet. 

Stamp the dark brown panel with confetti and streamer images (Surprise Art Nouveau stamps) in White pigment ink.

The "Happy Birthday" sentiment is from the Trattoria Greeting stamps.

Adhere Scandinavia Lite Sparkle Dots to the top of the cupcakes.

The remaining fourteen cards were made using different card making formulas from past Club Scrap Idea Decks. (The Assembly Line Card Making Idea Deck Volume 2 is still available!) For details on which cards were used, visit the Club Scrap blog

The birthday and "celebrate" sentiments are from the Delft Greeting stamps. I added baker's twine and three Scandinavia Lite Sparkle Stickers aligned using the zero center feature on my Club Scrap grid ruler.

Add baker's twine tied with the Sweet Tooth ice cream charms.

Stamp confetti and streamer images (Surprise Art Nouveau stamp sheet) in Distress Oxide ink onto the white panel. 

Use white pigment ink to stamp the lighted garland image. Add a few Scandinavia Lite Sparkle Stickers to several of the "lights" along the strand for dimension.

Trim the Sweet Tooth Remix Polka Dot bags to 5.25" and adhere to the center section of the tri-fold card. It's a great place for a secret greeting or gift card enclosure!

I hope you enjoyed this tour of my Sweet Tooth cards and that it inspires you to give this method a try yourself!

Ten color-blocked cards with Scandinavia.

Freshly inspired by Tricia's Color-Blocked Card Formula, I continued the fun with papers and embellishments from Club Scrap's Scandinavia Deluxe kit. (On sale through 2/12/18!)

For your five papers, use Deluxe White Print, Deluxe Blue Print, and Green, Gray and Red plain. Embellish cards with stamps, Cutaparts, and Sparkle Dots from Scandinavia Lite.

Have I convinced you to try this card formula yet? Visit Tricia's blog for instructions. Warning: It can be addictive!

Happy card making!

Ten color-blocked cards with Pattern Play.

Inspired by Tricia's quick and easy color-blocked card formula, I made ten cards with papers and embellishments from Club Scrap's Pattern Play Lite kit.

The instructions call for five 12x12 papers. Use Pattern Play Lite White Print, Green Print, Gray Pattern, Light Gray, and Dark Gray.

Add Club Stamp square tags. Use Silver Pigment ink when stamping on the black tags - it really pops!

Non-stamped sentiments are from the Lite Cutaparts.

Add dimension to select color-blocked panels with embossing folders, Lite Spiral Charms and Washi Tape.

I hope you give Tricia's card formula a try. These cards came together quickly, and the finished card style is really fun and unique.

Happy card making!

Sweet Tooth Remix Layouts

Club Scrap's original Sweet Tooth collection was so popular, they decided to do a Remix! The pages are adorable and an excellent fit for so many occasions.

My daughter turned 18 in December--where does the time go? Her friend threw her a surprise birthday party at our home. The paper colors and sentiments paired really well with the photos. I added cupcakes and numbers die cut from coordinating papers, along with Scandinavia Lite Sparkle Dot "sprinkles".

Sweet on You Valentine's Day Cards

Transform Club Scrap's Sweet on You collection into sixteen Valentine's Day cards using Club Scrap card making formulas. You can visit the Club Scrap blog to see which ones were used.

Complete the cards in just a few easy steps:
  1. Start by choosing a Club Scrap card making formula. Assign paper selections according to the "Gather List". 
  2. Use the cutting diagrams on the back side of the card to trim papers. 
  3. Trim Cutaparts included in the kit using the printed artwork as a guide.
  4. Once your papers are cut, assemble each card according to the diagram.
For each card, select Cutapart artwork that fits the card style. Pre-cut photo mats can be trimmed for additional matting or die cut for embellishments.

The Love Frame Woodcut fits perfectly into the open space on the front of this matchbook style card. Creative trimming of the 12-inch long Cutapart produces the "All you need is" portion of the sentiment, which is cleverly placed over the journaling lines on the heart Cutapart.

Trim floral "love" border strip into two 5.5" sections. Adhere to near edge of tri-fold card. Add XOXO charm tied with a bit of ribbon.

When following the cutting diagrams on the back side of each card, be mindful of how you position the prints onto your trimmer. For example, when trimming the White Prints, be sure to rotate the paper so the larger heart cluster and the word "love" remain intact.

Mat the "love" panel with a white photo mat tied with champagne ribbon.

Separate "you're my favorite" from the 12-inch "Besides chocolate..." Cutapart. Trim strip to create a banner effect.

Frame a heart panel with a white photo mat tied with red ribbon.

Die cut the word "love" from a red photo mat, adhere to dotty border strip.

Add texture to the Pink panel with an embossing folder. 

Trim hearts from a red photo mat using a set of nesting dies. Add texture to the hearts by running them through a wood-grain embossing folder. Highlight the raised areas with Club Scrap Hybrid ink in Earth.

Add texture to the red heart and pink panel with embossing folders.

For more info about the formulas used with the Sweet on You kit, see my post on the Club Scrap blog.

Happy Valentine's Day!
