card club - September 2012

Summer is over and my clubs have started up again! This year I have two clubs running. One is a Big Shot Club and the other is a Card Club. Each club has 8 members and it runs for 8 months. I am really excited about both groups of ladies as everyone is so eager to learn and create! My Card Club meets on the Third Monday of the month. For September's cards, I also used these card designs for my card night I hold at my mother-in-law's every other month. It was great to be able to double up and not do twice the amount of work in planning out the cards.

The first card may look familiar. The inspiration came straight out of the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog on pg. 190. I tweaked a few things to make it work for the amount of card kits I was making, as well as the different levels of experience.

I love the new Perfectly Preserved stamp set and coordinating Cannery Framelits, so I just had to pull it out to play up the "September Apple" theme. I think this would be a great card for a teacher!
