Club Scrap Holiday Hybrid Cottage Project

Create a sweet little lighted row of holiday cottages perfect for last minute gift giving.

Purchase and download the Hybrid Holiday project from the Club Scrap Digital Store.

Print the PDFs onto matte photo paper for the highest quality printed images.

With a craft knife, make all vertical window cuts. Rotate the paper a 90 degrees and make all the horizontal cuts. Remove the paper with the tip of the craft knife. To cut the curved windows above the door, begin cutting at the top of the window and pull the knife blade down towards the point. Then make the curved cuts prior to removal of the paper. *For this project, the circle on the back of the cottage does not have to be removed.

Fussy cut the cottages using scissors or a craft knife.

Attach the doors onto the fronts of the cottages prior to glue assembly.

Continue to assemble the cottages according to the instructions.

Create a base for the cottages and their battery operated tea lights.
1- 2.5x8.5" top
2- .75x8 3/8" long sides
2- .75x2.5" short sides

Mark the center point of each of the cottages as they will be lined up on the top of the base.

Make a square around each point and cut out with a craft knife.

Attach the two longs sides to the front of the top book board panel.

Glue the two short sides to the ends of the book board long sides and to the top panel.

Print out the "box" print onto text weight paper increasing the scale to 125% to eliminate the outer edge of the print.

Trim the text weight print into strips to cover the book board base.

Glue the papers to the side walls flush with the bottom of the base walls.

Wrap the papers over the top of the base and mitre corners slightly with scissors.

Attach the cover paper over the holes on the top panel.

Flip the base over and cut Xs into the paper with a craft knife.

Add dots of glue and wrap the flaps from the top to the inside of the base.

Glue faux tea lights into the base so that the flames poke through the top of the base.

Attach a stamped sentiment to the front of the base. Add glue to the bases of all the cottages, slip them over the flames of the tea lights, and attach to the top of the base onto a scrap of text print.

Then light them up and have a Happy Holiday!

Thanks for join me today.

Club Scrap Paradise Blog Hop

Welcome to the Club Scrap November Blog Hop featuring the Paradise Kit. If you have arrived from the super creative Roni's Inkstained Blog then you are in the right place. If not, hop back to Karen's post at the Club Scrap Blog to see a complete list of all the talented bloggers.

Paradise Deluxe Kit
I created this Clipboard Collage Project for my daughter Alicia. She took this photo of her boyfriend at the beach and we chose it to be the focal image on the collage. Be sure to visit the Club Scrap blog for details about this fun Retreat 2016 workshop.

Trim papers from the Paradise Deluxe kit to the sizes indicated on the collage print. There are several clipboard collage prints available in the Club Scrap store, so you can create your own using version featuring items from your stash.

Add the Paradise quote from the digital kit directly to the photo before printing.

Create a sheet of cut aparts from the digital kit and print onto sticker paper.

Emboss some of the plain paper panels and attach to the project. The Pink Duplex paper is embossed with Cuttlebug Swirls folder and the Citron Duplex paper is embossed with Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder.

Die cut hologram duct tape with "happy" from the Sizzix Celebration Script words set.

Cover the wooden paddles with Paradise, 50s Kitchen and Dahlia Washi Tapes.

Fussy cut digital images from sticker paper and add to the project along with lots of other fun embellishments from your stash.

Thanks for stopping by!

Up next on the hop is Anne Marie at her Artfully Balanced Blog.

Club Scrap Christmas Thyme Blog Hop

Welcome to the Club Scrap Christmas Thyme Blog Hop featuring the Christmas Thyme special edition collection. If you arrived from Tricia's Efficient Crafter Blog then you are in the right place. If not, visit Karen's post at the Club Scrap Blog for the full list of participants.

I created several projects for the hop. I used elements from both the Christmas Thyme Digital Kit and the Christmas Thyme Stamper's Kit.

Tea-lighted House:

Stamp the house image onto Manila paper. Color the image with pencils and white gesso.
Fussy cut the image with scissors.
Cover the gesso snow with Rock Candy Distress Stickles.
Trim out the windows and door with a craft knife. Leave the door attached at the hinge.
Stamp the home image again onto white tissue paper.
Attach the fussy cut house to the front of a 2.5" square box created from a Club Scrap pizza box.
Note: Cut out the windows and the door holes with a craft knife from the front of the box prior to assembly.
Glue the tissue paper to the front interior wall of the box.
Line the box with Gold paper. Cover the outside of the box with Manila paper with Bookbinding Glue.
IMPORTANT!- Do not use real flame candles with paper projects. I used a battery operated tea-light.

Scrapbook Pages:

Sketch from Ivory Elegance idea recipe card.

Two 12x12" background papers, Citron and Olive, from Club Scrap Garden Shed Deluxe Kit.
Two 8.5x11" trimmed papers, Ivory Berries and Rust, from Christmas Thyme Stamper's Kit.
Print tags and embellishments onto Manila paper from Christmas Thyme Digital Kit.

Title "Merry Christmas" stamped with Earth Hybrid ink onto Manila panel tied with gold ribbon.

Christmas Cards:

Print the Berry background onto 8.5x11" white paper from the Christmas Thyme Digital Kit.
Note: This print didn't come out as vibrant as I hoped, so I colored in some of the leaves and berries with coordinating markers. It really added the perfect punch of color.

Attach Manila 3.5x4.75" panels stamped with the house and sentiment images.
Note: Ink the house stamp with Sandstone Hybrid ink. Prior to stamping the image, color over the wreath and window boxes with the coordinating red and green markers.
Add embellishments to complete the cards. The flowers were from the Club Scrap Retreat 2010.

Thanks so much for joining me on my part of the hop!
