Look back over past year #3

The third quarter of the year saw more techniques introduced as well as using bang on trend paper supplies.  In July I went for Basic Grey 'Mint Julep' as the kit paper choice along with a Tando Creative 6x6 Template as the technique:

This is a layout I created of my Granddaughter's 18th Birthday using this kit:
In July we also had to say a fond farewell to Lisa, a club member, who emigrated to New Zealand with her family.
For August's kit I decided on Fancy Pants 'What a Wonderful Day' patterned papers and chose Cork sheets and arrow shapes for the technique:

Annette (one of our club members) created this lovely layout using this month's kit:
I also hosted a 'Have a Smashing Time' Workshop in August, when ladies from the Mad Scrappers Club created fabulous pages with a Fancy Pants Brag Book.

Julia, a Club Member, created this beautiful cover for her Brag Book:

September saw the start of another club night (every fourth Wednesday of the month) with 6 new ladies joining and 5 ladies from the first club night moving to join them.  The September kit contained patterned papers from MME Kate and Co - Oxford Lane range.  The technique was stamping on acetate with a Stazon Midi Ink Pad:

Eileen, one of new members, created this lovely layout using the stamping on acetate technique very effectively:

I will be back tomorrow with the final look at the Mad Scrappers Club during 2013.  Join me then.  In the meantime, feel free to leave a comment.  Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Really enjoyed using the cork, again a new thing to try!

  2. Hi Karen - I liked the cork too. It may pop up again next year - who knows???

  3. I liked the Kate & Co kit but it's too nice to use yet so it's in my stash that is just for looking at, until the right project comes along.

  4. Lovely projects all of them. That brag book is a stunner

  5. Lovely projects again - thanks for sharing
