We'll begin our 20th year of Club Scrap with the Mumbai Collection! The intricate designs and cheerful color palette will result in endless creative inspiration.

A Note from Tricia

In July I'd shared that Jacqueline's husband Scott had been diagnosed with cancer. On Thursday, December 6, Scott passed away after a courageous battle with cholangiocarcinoma. Jac designed the Mumbai kit (and most collections in 2018) while in the midst of providing constant care for Scott while in their home in Sheboygan, WI.

I first met Scott in 2009 when he assisted Club Scrap with a major website and shopping cart upgrade. He gave sacrificially during a time when we could have never afforded someone of his skill and experience to complete the long-overdue project. "Mr. Scott" became an instant family friend and spent a lot of time with us through the years. I will cherish the bottles of fine wine we shared, travel experiences, and all the times he showed endless caring and generosity to me and my Club Scrap family.

Many of you have had an opportunity to meet Scott on the cruise or at past retreats. He ran trips to the coffee shop for guests, delivered gifts, set up classrooms, arranged video screens and projectors, and even donned a chicken costume!

Possessing the friendship of this man is one of my life's greatest joys. He has left a lasting heart print in my life and will be greatly missed.

If you would like to send a card of encouragement to Jac, please mail to Club Scrap, c/o Jacqueline Carney, 1375B Constitution Drive, Neenah, WI, 54956. In lieu of flowers or other gifts, the family has requested that any donations be made to the Cancer Treatment Centers of America where he was provided exceptional care during the past year.

Inks and Fonts

Make sure you're stocked with Club Scrap's hybrid inks! The best colors to coordinate with the Mumbai collection include Lagoon, Tangerine, Fuchsia, Sapphire, Topaz, Neon Blue, India Black and White Pigment.

We selected a hand drawn serif font this month called Soleil. It is available for purchase at Creative Market.

What's Ahead?

We typically request theme suggestions from our members in late August. Beth Moran generously shares kit ideas throughout the year, and her submissions always include imagery, color palettes, sentiments and uses for her vision. Thank you, Beth, for providing the inspiration and title of February's Cobblestone collection! The cool, earthy color scheme and images will be neutral for travel photos, monuments, and countless outdoor events.

Mumbai Page Kit

I had fun putting together a little preview video of the printed papers, die cuts, embellishments and fibers featured in this beautiful kit. Take a look!

Mumbai Card Kit

I just love this month's interesting and dynamic card structures. Don't let the appearance of complexity scare you. I'm sharing tons of helpful shortcuts and techniques in my video tutorial.

Mumbai Stamps

Don't forget about our beautiful jumbo sheet of vulcanized stamps. Visit the item in the cart to see more card samples and inspiration.
