Club Scrap "Share the Love" Blog Hop

Happy Valentine's Day and WELCOME to the first ever Club Scrap Member Blog Hop!
We are so happy to share our love of this scrapbooking kit of the month club.   We can tell you the we really feel like a family and everyone at Club Scrap HQ makes you feel the same way!

I have been a monthly kit member since joining in January 2008 with the Study in Red kit.   And when my 3 month membership was up there was no way I was going to give it up.   So many beautiful and exciting kits each month.   What a pleasure it has been to be a member for all of these years.

So with out further ado,  I would like to share a couple of things I prepared especially for today's hop!
Using the Gratitude Kit from April 2010 I have created paper quilt blocks.   The first project is a wall hanging in the Bear Claw Block style.
I also used an unmounted rubber swirl stamp from the Be Wonderful collection to add pattern to the brown squares and used Club Scrap's Ruby Hybrid ink.

I also decided to created 2 cards with the remaining squares.   They are in the Star Four Square style.
The embellishment on the first card is a dragonfly from the Gratitude kit and the button is vintage from my stash.   In the cards as well as the wall hanging,  I used Tim Holtz Sizzix Texturz fades folders to emboss the solid card stocks.  (Brick, Brocade, and Flourish)

The idea for these cards came from a project done on Split Coast Stampers!
