Makin' Merry In July With Vogue

Greetings fellow paper crafting enthusiasts!

After taking a look at Club Scrap's Christmas In July Sale I noticed the December 2010 Vogue Products available at a wonderful price, so why not treat myself to Christmas In July?!?!


Now that it's July, I have great wedding photos perfect for using with Vogue! (I was at the wedding, and believe me, it was pretty merry) I used the 12x12 Pearl Transulcent Print & the Grey 8x11 Transulcent Plain and then grabbed some black & white cardstock from my stash to use along with the Vogue papers.

(A little more about my merry usage of December's Vogue papers in July.)


Using another Pearl Transulcent Print, I torn out flower shapes to layer and use for embellishing, the Translucent paper gave my torn florals a more elegant look.


No glue was used to attach the layers together, I simply used a decorative brad.


Then attached the paper flowers to my layout using Glue Lines.


Since I had such nice results tearing the Pearl Transulcent Paper, I also tore the Grey Translucent to coordinate the look. The torn translucent paper has a neat white edge after being ripped and looks great layered up....

....so I went with it to matte the photo. Simple but cool.

 I also used the Milestones Unmounted Rubber Stamp Font for stamping the bride & grooms name, they were perfect in not taking up too much space, but being easy to read.

About the sticker below, it's my favorite little quote from this kit and just happens to be on the Vogue Jr Apha Stickers, so I had to include that for embellishing as well as the Vogue Journaling Cutapart.


What a great picture to end on - one that reads "Heaven give you many, many Merry days!"

Merry July to everyone! Hope you are makin' merry with the Christmas In July sale.


And, not to be outdone by Ron and Karen, I, too am offering a bit of blog candy for our readers. Wanna see what you could get?

When doing a little "club"housecleaning, I came across a rogue kit for the Photo Twist-about Project! This was one of my favorite WOW projects, and you could win this "last of its kind" item! Just put the name of your favorite past December Club Scrap kit in a comment below, and I will choose a winner from those who commented at random. (Drawing ends Saturday, July 14 at noon, CS time.) It's that easy! Good luck!


Thanks for stopping by,
Kay Williamson of Club Scrap

  1. I had to go way back with this one but I would have to say Evergreen (2003) with the homemade paper and the great pine branch stamps. I will say that 2011 Aurora Borealis is a very close second though...

  5. Kay thanks so much for a chance to win such a fantastic prize! I wasn't able to get the Original WOW kit so this would be an awesome prize to win for me!
    I love CS projects and this one has to be one of the coolest!

    Love your Vogue layout and you have inspired me to get off my duff and do something fun and creative very soon! Love your paper flowers too and the fact that you didn't use any glue and they lay nice and flat for this layout, but yet add so much dimension. Way to go. :)

  12. My favorite December kit is also Musical Interlude. DD#4 got married the month it came out and it perfectly matched her wedding colors. To make things even better, she is very musical! The colors in MI are wonderful and I've used it for many things besides several wedding albums! It's probably my most reordered kit!

  18. I think I would put "Musical Interlude" at the top of my favorite December kits, I think I picked up enough of that paper, to wallpaper my entire house. :)
