August Stamp Club

This month in Stamp Club, I want to focus on WHEELS! I “wheely” love using Stampin‘ Around wheels in my projects (sorry, bad pun but they are fabulous). In fact, when I first started stamping, wheels were some of my first purchases because they were so versatile.

This card features a great technique – mitering the edges of a wheel so that your corners meet up nicely. This technique is great on scrapbook pages as well. When you use the wheels, you don’t want to overlap on the corners so you will love this easy way to miter the edges nicely. The word “grateful” comes from the jumbo wheel, Bright Blessings. I have a GREAT technique to show you with this wheel!!! You’ll just have to come to Club to learn it!


Our new Builder Wheels are SO much fun!!! With Builder wheels, you can custom create wheels in all sorts of color combination and of course, different wheels. This card features the Triple Cell Cartridge which I inked up in Tempting Turquoise, Certainly Celery and Rich Razzleberry. My Builder Wheel choices are Posy Party, Thoughtful Friend, and Bees & Blossoms (only $4.50 each – super affordable!). Just for fun, I thought I would use the new stamp set, For Everything. I love this stamp set! Anything with polka dots and I am hooked! Oh, and did you notice the little rhinestone on the flower? Yep, these are our new Jewels. Who doesn’t love BLING?

(Note: my order of Jewels hasn’t arrived yet but I wanted to get this picture posted. Stampin‘ Up Jewels are SO much nicer than this one that I swiped from my daughter.)

I don’t know about you, but I can never have enough note pads. This sweet little book is a Jr. Legal pad that I cut in half. It’s now PERFECT for a shopping list! On the cover, I used the jumbo wheel, Whimsy. Now, you won’t find this wheel in the new catalog but it IS still available (see page 218). I love adding a colorful touch to wheels by coloring in here and there. Inside the pen, I added matching paper. How fun is this?

I hope you all can join me at Stamp Club in August!
