Remove just one corner for each Black square with a Corner Rounder on the 1/2″ setting for a “mod” look. Avoid placing two adjacent rounded corners together on the layout.

I was thrilled to rescue a scrap of Black paper when I discovered it was the perfect height for this “happy” cutapart. Trim a 2″ length of the green checked ribbon, fold in half, and staple to the top right corner of the cutapart.

LAYOUTS 3 & 4Pattern Play Lite Layout Insights #clubscrap

You’re going to love the two-sided, saddle stitched ribbon included in your kit. Arrange the fun cutaparts in a vertical stack above and below the photo mat. Cut and fold four longer lengths of ribbon and staple to the right and left of the “and” and “now” cutaparts.

Thread ribbon through the loops on each end of the silver spiral charm. Glue the charm to the designated spot on the cutapart and tape the ribbon ends to the back.

Piece together a set of four cutaparts to finish the right edge of the layout. Remember, if you have plenty of photos to go around, use the cutaparts as photo mats.

I loved working with this collection and hope these insights assist you in final layout assembly! It’s incredible how this kit can showcase photographs from any reason or season. Get the Pattern Play Lite kit today . . . I have a feeling it will disappear quickly!

Twelve ways to use quad prints and a new compilation!

Back in 2014, I wrote a blog post compiling ideas on how to use the Club Stamp quad prints. These prints are as popular as ever, and almost every month our blogging team shares fresh ideas.

Twelve Ways with Quad Prints

I’m a “list” girl, so I’ve listed twelve of my favorite ways to use these versatile prints below.


Club Stamp Quad Prints create gorgeous scrapbook pages. Trim quad print to various sizes to frame a special photo by following this simple tutorial.

Replicate the look of an “hourglass” quilt using the Quilt Block Technique.

Alter the look of your quad print with a Club  Stamp Paper Makeover!

Due to the text weight nature of these papers, they are excellent candidates for fancy folding techniques.

Create this Double Pleated Card for someone special.

Follow Kay’s tutorial to make this cute Pinwheel Card.

Stamp directly onto the quad print artwork to easily achieve a collaged, mixed media look. Visit the blog post for details.


Take advantage of the lighter weight of the Quad Prints by using them to wrap book board to create home decor projects, like Kay’s mail and magazine holder.

Browse through the Artist Team  blog hop for more inspiring ideas. You’ll be impressed by their clever projects!

Whew! That a lot of inspiration!

I hope you find one (or twelve!) ideas you’d like to try, because the 2016 Quad Print Compilation Pack is now available in our shop. Each pack includes two sheets of each 8.5×11″ quad print from the 2016 monthly collections. (That’s 24 total sheets from January through December 2016!)

Happy crafting!

Getting scrappy with the Refresh Remix collection.

Tricia calls certain kits “photo-eaters”–meaning the papers match virtually everything. The Refresh Remix collection is no exception.

So many pictures matched so well–the real challenge was deciding which photos to actually glue down!

Refresh Remix Finished Layouts
Layout 1 & 2

Pics from Emma’s eighth grade graduation practically begged to be on these papers. The school colors are blue and white–and seriously, could her dress be a better match?

Refresh Remix Finished Layouts
Layout 5 & 6

Since Dad is taking hundreds of pictures a day, I have tons of those to scrap, too.

Refresh Remix Finished Layouts
Layout 3 & 4

There were plenty of places where I could sneak in an extra photo or two. (Can you spot them?)

Refresh Remix Finished Layouts
Layout 7 & 8

Don’t let a “theme” limit you. Let the colors in your photos guide you. If a cutapart sentiment isn’t quite right, cover it with an extra photo or stamped panel. You can’t go wrong!

Happy scrapping!

Adirondacks Blog Hop & Linky Party

Welcome to the May Blog Hop and Linky Party! We appreciate you joining us as we share pages, cards, and other projects featuring the gorgeous Adirondacks collection.

I hope y’all aren’t sick of me sharing my finished ALSB layouts, but I had no trouble whatsoever finishing my Lite pages this month . Dad’s nature photos practically jumped onto the paper!

I love the versatility of ALSB. In order to accommodate the photos I had on hand, I rearranged the page pairs a bit. (So no, you do not need glasses. My pages aren’t in the same order as Tricia’s ALSB instructions.)
