March Technique Club Projects

Here's a peak at the projects I'll be teaching at my March Technique Club. I just love the tags and flowers on page 6 of TAC's new Serendipity magalogue. My first project is this card that features one of the flowers. (Please excuse my poorly taken photos. I'm working with a new light set-up and I'm still trying to get things just how I want them.)

supplies for care- 1-1/4" extra jumbo punch, 1-3/4" super jumbo punch, Angelee paper, Edge Designs, Linear Sentiments, Gratitude, Noir Palette ink, Violete Palette ink.


Are you familiar with If not, you've got to check it out. There are tons of great projects and great tutorials. The following project was inspired by a 'Easter Goodie Bag'. I just purchased TAC's Little Cupcake stamp set and it was perfect for this project. I'm not wild about the peppermint candies, but it's all I had on hand at the time.

supplies- Little Cupcake, A Little Whimsy paper pad, aqua cardstock, Prismacolor pencils, ribbon, misc. scallop punch.


This little tag...I just love it! It goes along with the flower from the first project I showed you. Again, you can find this tag on p. 6 of the Serendipity Magalogue. I'll have my technique club ladies make two or three of these tags. I really like the shipping tag punches. I'm always trying to just make my own tag patterns, but these punches make it soooo much easier.

supplies- Mega Merchandise tag, Giga Shipping tag, Extra Jumbo flower punch, purple patterned paper from Angelee, misc. green and pink cardstock, lavender scrapper's floss, brad, Crop-a-Dile, misc. ribbon and eyelet.

Birthday Card

I was inspired by a really cute wedding card in the March/April 2009 issue of Paper Crafts Magazine and knew just the stamp sets that I wanted to use...Linear Sentiments and Edge Designs from The Angel Company!

I just received these two sets in the mail and couldn't wait to make this card. What do you think? The word stamp is from a retired TAC set...I don't remember the name, but I thought it was just right for this card. Edge Designs is from TAC's new magalogue, Serendipity. If you haven't checked it out, you really should! There are some amazing new stamp sets and tons of great ideas.
