2018 Expo Make and Take Layouts and Instructions

Tricia Morris

If you're here, chances are we connected at a Club Scrap sponsored workshop or make 'n take at a recent expo. Welcome! We're happy we had the opportunity to share our method with you!
Fran Couzens (Club Scrap Member), Tricia Morris (Owner) and Karen Wyngaard (Member Services and Event Coordinator)
We've been developing our "scrap-free" approach to scrapbooking since 2005 and have made continued strides in helping crafters conquer their stash of materials and supplies with confidence. We hope we've helped you discover new possibilities, as well!

Our Layout Samples
Throughout the year, we continually add more pages to our make 'n take kit selections. Each theme is pictured below, without and with photos. Find the one that matches your make 'n take page kit for assembly inspiration. The possibilities are limitless! For review, this is the original "sketch" of the layout. Watch for all of the "twists and turns" inspired by the various paper combinations. Club Scrap Page Formula #clubscrap #scrapbooking
Adirondacks Collection2018 Expo Make 'n Take Layouts #clubscrapexpo #scrapbooking #clubscrap #scrapbookexpo
The location of the artwork on the 12x12 Ivory Print inspired the swap of the 5x12 and 7x12" pieces. This theme was perfect for a fall day in Wisconsin stacking wood for the cold winter months. 2018 Expo Make 'n Take Layouts #clubscrapexpo #scrapbooking #clubscrap #scrapbookexpo
Vintage Botany Collection2018 Expo Make 'n Take Layouts #clubscrapexpo #scrapbooking #clubscrap #scrapbookexpo
The vintage style and warm tones of this kit were just right as a backdrop for a tour of La Marais, a very historical area within Paris. The small photo mat on the right side of the layout highlights the tickets from our ride on the metro. The unassuming printed background complements (and does not compete with) the photos. 2018 Expo Make 'n Take Layouts #clubscrapexpo #scrapbooking #clubscrap #scrapbookexpo
Scandinavia Collection2018 Expo Make 'n Take Layouts #clubscrapexpo #scrapbooking #clubscrap #scrapbookexpo
Many happy memories of Thanksgiving Day found their home with this darling "folksy" theme. The photo mats provide a good balance between larger focal images, and smaller accent pictures cropped to fit the space. 2018 Expo Make 'n Take Layouts #clubscrapexpo #scrapbooking #clubscrap #scrapbookexpo
Surprise Collection2018 Expo Make 'n Take Layouts #clubscrapexpo #scrapbooking #clubscrap #scrapbookexpo
Sip, sip, hooray! I incorporated two rubber stamped images from the Surprise collection to finish this layout with pictures from New Year's Eve. Each themed monthly collection includes a release of coordinating rubber stamps that can automatically be added to your shipment or purchased individually. 2018 Expo Make 'n Take Layouts #clubscrapexpo #scrapbooking #clubscrap #scrapbookexpo
Cherry Blossoms Collection2018 Expo Make 'n Take Layouts #clubscrapexpo #scrapbooking #clubscrap #scrapbookexpo
If you have a stash of embellishments (who doesn't?), sort through what you have on hand to match your page kit. Here, I've attached white silk flowers with miniature pink brads to add extra interest to the layout. Consider adding ribbons or fibers, as well! 2018 Expo Make 'n Take Layouts #clubscrapexpo #scrapbooking #clubscrap #scrapbookexpo
Let's Talk Tools
Just like a chef is equipped with the very best knives, saute pans, and appliances, you'll want to make sure you have the right tools to be successful. Below are my three favorite essentials . . .
Guillotine-style 12" Trimmer
I have been using this 12" paper trimmer almost daily since 2012, and it still cuts perfectly. The clear stabilizing bar, 1/2" vertical alignment grid, and self-sharpening blade are critical components to making this the best tool in my arsenal. If you don't have one, you can easily add it to your first member shipment!
Club Scrap® 3x14" Acrylic Grid Ruler
Prevent the dreaded "downhill placement" of objects on your layouts with our acrylic grid ruler. I can't scrap without it! I frequently use the "0" center feature to evenly distribute the placement of objects on a page, such as the row of three small photo mats on our make 'n take layout.
Accordion Pocket File Kit
The Accordion Pocket File Kit includes the materials needed to make your own file to keep you organized while making a set of eight pages at a time. The kit includes heavy-weight papers, two binder clips, a 2 oz. bottle of our all-purpose Bookbinding Glue, and a needle-tipped glue applicator. You'll also receive a link to an instruction download and video tutorial to assist with the assembly. In addition, you'll need a Score-Pal and Paper Trimmer to complete the project. Are you still reading? If so, I want to extend one last invitation to join us! We genuinely want to help you succeed in your crafting goals by providing superior supplies and instructions at an affordable cost. Remember, we don't have a minimum monthly membership requirement. It's our job and privilege to earn your loyalty.
