While helping out in the expo booths, I noticed many card makers don't realize the true potential of Club Scrap's page kits. I loved what Karen did with the You Go, Girl collection earlier this year. Having those samples in the booth really helped open the eyes of card makers.
With that in mind, I recently challenged myself to see how many cards I could create from the Casino Royale page kit. I chose four formulas from the Idea Deck Volume 5: The 8 of Hearts, 9 of Hearts and the 10 and King of Diamonds. (These card making formulas are still available as a download in the digital store.)
This combination of formulas required eleven 12x12 papers, allowing me to keep one 12x12 White plain for matting and stamping. I only loosely followed the assembly sketches so I could incorporate Cutaparts and the Casino Royale stamps. Photo mats from the kits were used for stamping and additional matting.
