Welcome to February's
featuring this months kit -
As you can tell from the name, this month's kit theme was games...
mainly cards but there were nods to dice, chess and bingo as well!
(Click on the photos to be taken to the CS web site for more information)

When I first saw the kit I instantly in love with it! I can think of so many fun ways to use this kit...which actually led to a different problem ~ I couldn't decide what to do with it!!! Honestly, I had so many ideas I was petrified to start on something in case I came up with an even better idea. I finally decided to do what I love - recycle... I know what you're thinkin'...what the heck is she talkin' about?!?!? Well, this month's project is based off of the pizza box that the Club Scrap kit comes in!!!
And here is what I created!!! A Big Deal Shadow Box.....
I cut off the lid of the box and set it aside for use later; painted the box inside and out with burnt umber acrylic paint and then started creating my pieces. The individual items were stamped or cut from existing patterns from the paper and then mounted using the cardboard from the lid...some are matted with a single layer while other elements are popped off the background with 2, 3, up to 5 layers of cardboard.
The "deck" of cards is actually stamped, 6 times and layered with a piece of the cardboard lid between each layer...
the various elements....
One of the pattern papers in the kit was made up of images of vintage cards which I cut up, inked then glued in the bottom of the shadow box to make it look like someone was playing cards right there!
And of course here's my little gnome friend ~
all "decked out" (sorry - couldn't resist) in his invisible crown!
