Card Kit Monday- Trick or Treat

Hi everyone, Sandy here for our new Monday posts. 
We will be featuring cards from the SBC mini card kits. 

Here is a quick peak of this months kit

It is perfect for all levels of scrapbookers! So whether you are a newbie or an experience scrapper, these kits has everything you'll need to create fast and easy projects. All you need to do is get out your scissors, paper trimmer and adhesive.
This is one of the cards that I did and featured in this months video. I had a lot of fun coloring little Monica Mouse dressed up as a butterfly for Halloween. I used Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol for the color. I also couldn't wait to play with the Firework Mist which I used for the background color.
When using mist for the first time, shake and stir your mist to get all
the clumps out before you start misting.

Check out more cards on our Sept video

Faux Pocket T-Shirts

Hello, Friends!  Marilyn here with a faux pocket project.  I saw several of these while scanning Pinterest and thought I would give it a try.

Here's what you'll need:

  • Square 1 Iron-On - 1 sheet for both shirts will work.
  • Iron or Heat Press - if using a heat press, set it at 325 degrees for 4 seconds.
  • Silhouette Software
  • Silhouette Cameo
  • Ink Jet Printer
  • Blank T-Shirts

Faux Pocket T-Shirts

To make these, first design your pocket using Silhouette software.  I got the pocket outline from a Facebook Silhouette group (Happy Sil) and added the initials I wanted :  first initial, last initial, middle initial.

Use the Monogramm KK SC font to make yours like mine.  I had to ungroup the initials then offset each by 0.01 to make the initials thicker.

Once done with designing, send the image to your ink jet printer and cut using your Cameo.

Decide where you want the faux pocket placed on your tee and heat press in place.

And you're ready to wear your tees!

Hope you have a blessed day and thanks for stopping by, ~ Marilyn

Friday Cards Tutorial (Revamping) ~ SBC Design Team

Hello Friends !

Annette here for the Scrapbook Blessings Club to share with you Friday's project ~ "Cards".

My Tip Today: Make use of your old cards ~ bring them back to life again

Now to one of my favorite things I like to do. I make a large number of cards, as I do not sell my cards I like to make use of them where I can and if I can. I love making cards and entering them into challenges, its like playing a poker machine (lol) the excitement of watching and winning if you can be so lucky.
When I get a card that has taken the eye of DT members on several challenges and has won I know its a special card and thought rather than bin the cards I came up with the idea of revamping them and re-entering them into challenges and winning again with that old card.

Here is a card I made some months ago and it won a few challenges. After the date of make had flown by I just thought it was a pity to bin the card, so I studied the challenges that were open at that time and saw a challenge theme "In the Garden". I thought just "PERFECT".
So on went my thinking cap and I completely re-vamped my old Bendi Fold Card.

This is the original Bendi Fold Card I created and won challenges with:-

And here is how I revamped the original Bendi Card:-
Keeping the original trees, I added extra Fern, I changed the grassing using a die and having 3 various colours, added a tag "I Love my Garden" and popped a new Doily and Digital stamp. Here I had my new Bendi Fold Card all ready to go for a new challenge.......and, it won the challenge, 1st prize.

 Of course it did not finish there, I decided to utilize this Bendi Card one more time for one of my DT assignments, yes I revamped it again:-
Here is my current Bendi Fold Card re-vamped:-
This time I just used the very base card and totally re-vamped and changed the entire card.

I love re-vamping and I hope you have enjoyed my  tutorial on my revamping of the Bendi Fold Card.

As always, any comments are very much appreciated. 
Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day.

Annette ~

Hope you have a blessed day and thanks for stopping by.

Challenge #29 - Anything Goes (featuring Wiper Cards)

Hello Crafty Friends, Brenda here with our next challenge.  The challenge is ANYTHING GOES, with the Design Team making a "Wiper Card"

  I am a CTMH Consultant and so excited to be sponsoring this challenge. If you are unfamiliar with Close To My Heart's product head on over here and take a look. 
The winner from this challenge will get to pick out $20.00 worth of product from

                Are you ready to see how to create a Wiper Card....


Head on over here for a written tutorial for you from Splitcoast Stampers also.


Here is what the Scrapbook Blessings Club Design Team created for Challenge #29:

Carolyn - Granny Ma's Creative Blog

My Tip: Using heavier card stock for base will create a great looking and working card.

Cindy - In Love with PAPER

TiP:  Open the card and plan out your design as if it's one big card.

 My Tip: Use a heavier adhesive like Score Tape. There is a movable card so you want to make sure it don't come apart.

Brenda - Disney Girl
My Tip:  When using your Cricut give a test run cut on plain white paper to see how large your image will actually be cut.  Sometimes it is not what you think it may be.
To find more information on how they did that, please click on their name/blog or the challenge under their picture. Thanks for playing along. We hope that these design team projects inspire you. 

Your challenge:
Anything goes: cards, banners, layouts but if you enter a "Wiper Card", you will get an extra chance entry for this challenge sponsor.

This challenge ends on Saturday, September 20th at 10:00 pm EST.  Also, you can join up to our Facebook group: Scrapbook Blessings Club for more fun, games, inspiration, tips and techniques. 

If you do make a project using the featured technique, wiper card,

your project and blog may be showcased on the SBC Facebook group.

And as always, comments are appreciated.
