Today we are celebrating Club Scrap's August kit called Tribal. If you want to start from the beginning of the hop, jump over to the CLUB SCRAP CREATES BLOG by clicking on the link. It is here that you will find the complete list of participating Bloggers.
The Tribal kit screams out to be used for something special for the man in your life. What a fantastic way to get some masculine influences in your artwork.

First up, I ordered a clear black iPhone5 case which I purchased on Amazon.com HERE. There are all sorts of colors and models to choose from.
Next I created a template, using some of the packaging, and designed a totally unique cover using my Tribal unmounted rubber stamps. I am providing a free template here on the hop so you can design your very own.

I am excited to change things up with every new Club Scrap kit that is released.
My other goal was to create a small organization spot for guys to throw their spare change, keys and phone at the end of the day. Let's face it, most guys (and some of us gals) just throw stuff on a counter or bureau willy nilly and this is how things get misplaced.

So instead of reinventing the wheel, I went back in my stash of Club Scrap project instructions and found the Stamp Project from the Jan. 2011 Lotus Pond Kit. This adorable little Trinket Treasure Trove project just needed a few adjustments to the measurements and it was the perfect size for my dresser valet.
|Used the Tribal 8.5x11 print to cover the top, sides and back of the valet.|
After assembling the cabinet I painted the book board using Blick black matte finish acrylic paint.
I also added wood plugs (from the hardware store) as drawer knob and feet. I "stained" the wood plugs using Club Scrap's Hybrid Earth ink and attached to the unit using Club Scrap Book Binding Glue.
|Drawer knob and feet are 2 different styles of wood plugs.|
