October Club Projects

Our club meeting went very well this past week, I had a lot of fun with everyone! And we got to eat our cookies too :) We used the Sweet Pressed Cookie Stamps and made some cute Halloween cookies first...

Then we moved on to make these quick and easy cookie sleeves with the creepy Halloween set. The sleeve is super easy :)
  • Stamps: Piece of Poison
  • Paper: Copy paper
  • Ink: Crumb Cake, Basic Black
  • Other: 2½" Circle punch, Corner Rounder punch, Stapler
  1. Cut a piece of copy paper into (2) 4½"x8½" pieces. 
  2. Round Corners on one end.
  3. Fold over not quite in half so that the front is about ½" shorter than the back, the back is the part with the rounded corners.
  4. Punch a partial 2½" circle from the top edge of the front.
  5. Stamp as desired. 
  6. Staple sides closed.
I found you can fit 2 of the shortbread or the sugar cookies in this sleeve.

The special this month is buy 2 Simply Sent kits and get a coordinating stamp set free,  so we made a card with the Simply Sent Great Day kit and I goofed and used the Perfectly Penned set here instead of the coordinating It's Your Day set

The 12x12 page this time was something a little woodsy. I love the Frostwood Lodge paper, LOVE IT! I paired in with the Pines & Poinsettias set from the Holiday mini and can't wait to take a new family photo to put on this page! The mat will hold a 5x7.
  • Stamps: Pines & Poinsettias
  • Paper: Wild Wasabi, Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake, Frostwood Lodge Designer Series Paper
  • Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake
  • Other: Big Shot with Tasteful Trim and Perfect Pennants dies, 1¾" Circle punch, Bird Builder punch (leaves/branches), Cherry Cobbler Quitled Satin ribbon, Stampin' Dimensionals, Sticky Strip, Distressing Tool from the Cutter Kit, Illuminate Top Coat Smooch Accent Ink
We used to Top Coat Accent Ink to add a little dazzle to the tiny flowers in the medallion. I had just got it and hadn't had a chance to play with it until the ladies came over and Robin was the first to try it!

Until next time, Happy Stampin!
