I have been busy prepping my projects for an upcoming Hostess Club that meets in McAllen TX. I visit them (along with my family) every other month and a group of local girls get together to create projects, they are all members of my Hostess Club- which means they get tons of benefits too! These girls are AVID scrapbookers, and they LOVE Project Life so this month we are creating some customized inserts for their pages.
I left open the spots for the Easter pics they will most likely have, I haven’t taken mine yet- LOL!! It’s not even as if I have printed mine from last year, yeah I am that kind of scrapbooker… lots of layouts, no pics. One day…
As you can see the fabulous sun is back out here in SoTx, I love it- in fact I did a little sun bathing right after I took this, with SPF 1 million of course.
I created this cute litte insert using the template we are playing with this week at Hand Stamped Sentiments. I made it a little less over the top, because I wanted these inserts to accent the pictures not overwhelm or take away from them. I used the cute little bunny from CHEERFUL CRITTERS set and accented (or better yet, tried to camouflage the fact he has no legs…) the card with some of the white PAINTED BLOOM TWINE. This stuff is like tying cotton, it’s so soft and super bright white.
Here is the sketch we are playing with, you should pop over and play along. You can create anything!!
I thought massive Easter Eggs would be super fun to accent the page with, just think if these were chocolate… Mmmmmm. We are using the OVAL FRAMELITS, CUPCAKE PUNCH, and the FRINGE SCISSORS to create this card- Did you know that those fantasic FRINGE SCISSORS are part of the current WEEKLY DEAL?!! Yes, you should grab them while they are on sale!!
The best part about these framelits is that you have SO many Egg size options… we make several in all different colors, this way no matter what your models are wearing in the pics you are sure to coordinate with something in this page.
I used the LITTLE LETTER THINLITS to create the title piece, I thought it was cute that the little fat chic was holding up those teetering letters. Let’s just say he’s sitting in a hole?? I used various shades of card stock that I had embossed with some Textured Folders and my Big Shot, adhered them together and BAM- you gots a cute simple Easter Egg!
I can’t wait to get my kids on camera searching for Eggs, they are much older now and we put $$ in them instead of candy… cause let’s be real, who ends up eating the first 2 bags before the eggs even get stuffed?? No one needs that!
Not only do my Hostess Club Members get to create adorable projects for FREE… BUT they also get the HOSTESS REWARDS too! See each of the girls in the club are assigned a different month to be the “hostess”, and that month they get all the hostess rewards earned by putting they groups orders together. This way, they get all the rewards of being a Hostess with out having to clean their house, send out invites, pester their friends for RSVPs, kick out their families for 2-3 hours, and then clean their house again….
When you are a HOSTESS CLUB member you simply submit your Hostess Club order of $40 by the 15th of the month, and then one month you reap all the benefits! Oh and they also get to take advantage of one FREE class to attend or get through the mail on the months they order with their club. Members also have access to an exclusive Facebook Group, where they can get to know each other and get together if they live near each other. I have many long-distance members who connect with each other through this site.
It’s pretty sweet and you can be a member and live anywhere in the US! I have members from New York to Hawaii!! Check out ALL the awesome details for being a Hostess Club Member HERE– I am accepting 3 members to start in May!! These groups fill up fast so I wouldn’t wait, I know May isn’t just around the corner, but there are only 3 spots and they will go fast.
Before I leave you today I want to be sure you see the WEEKLY DEALS that were just released, these are awesome! So many things that would be perfect for lots of different projects and SO bright!! Love them! CLICK HERE to view them online.
