Expo Card Make 'n Take

Tricia Morris

Welcome to the Expo card make 'n take information page!

If you're here, chances are we connected at a Club Scrap sponsored workshop or make 'n take at a recent expo. We're happy we had the opportunity to share our method with you!

We've been proudly developing our efficient approach to card making since 2005.

Next, let's talk tools.

Just like a chef is equipped with the very best knives, saute pans, and appliances, be 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 cards with our acrylic grid ruler. I can't craft without it! I frequently use the "0" center feature to evenly distribute the placement of objects like panels, border strips, or embellishments.

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.
