Part 2: 44 cards from Scrapping For Less' August Flavor of the Month Card Kit

Hello, how are you doing today?  Today I am showcasing the remaining cards I made from the August Flavor of the Month Card Kit from Scrapping For Less. 

As you know it has been my personal goal and my promise to Teresa to use the Flavor of the Month Card Kits to their fullest potential, trying to make as many quality cards I can from it. Each month I have been able to make more and more. This month I blew that out of the water. Last month I made 32 cards, this month I made 44 cards. During the blog hop I announced the number was 43, but I found I had counted wrong. Lol.

These card kits are by far the best kits on the market right now in my opinion. You get to sample four different paper collections. You get a full size stamp set or several small stamp sets. You also get a generous amount of different types of embellishments such as sequins, buttons, bling, enamel dots, epoxy stickers, cardstock stickers, ribbon, twine, embossing folders, dies, inks, and so much more. Visit the SFL store here for kit details and ordering.

Here are my cards from Collections Three and Four.

Hello everyone!  I hope your summer has been good to you. I would imagine many of you are getting ready for Back to School. My daughter starts 4th grade on September 7th. I love having her home with me and spending time together but it’s time. She loves to be with her friends and teachers.

Distress Oxide Ink Backgrounds

Hello everyone!  How are you all doing this beautiful fall day?  I just love the fall season. It is my most favorite season of the year because of all the beautiful colors. Here in Minnesota there is no shortage of beautiful fall colors. But with the arrival of fall we sadly have to say goodbye to summer. So I wanted to make one last summer themed card while I was still in my summer mojo mood.  Soon enough I will be switching gears and I will start working on Christmas cards. But until then I hope you enjoy this short process video of the card I made featuring the adorable summer stamp set from Neat & Tangled called Beach Days. 



In this video I show how you can use Ranger Distress Oxide inks to create a sweet summer beach background.

Take a Walk on the Wild Side!



Are you ready to walk on the wild side? Well, that is exactly the theme of our August Flavor of the Month card kit. Wild and Free with an exclusive stamp set by Pink and Main. We are so extremely happy about this kit. Come on and hop along and see what the amazing Design Team has provided this month as inspiration. 

This amazing August kit has SOLD OUT! Prior to the blog hop!...WOW! If you missed out you will want to jump on the subscription wagon so you do not miss out on September's amazing kit. Check out this page for all the details about the kits. They just keep getting better and better! Thanks for hopping along with us today. Don't forget to enter the Rafflecopter for a chance to win a complete kit! 

Now onto our lineup:
If you've been hopping with us in the past few months, you know that I have made it my personal goal to work this kit until it is gone and see how many cards I can squeeze out of it.  The first month or two I made all 4 sketches from all 4 collections, getting 16 cards.  Then I started going further, taking all 4 sketches from all 4 collections and then continuing to use up the rest and push the number higher.  One month it was 28, another was 30, last month was 32.  This month I really pushed myself and you will not believe how many I managed to make from this one kit.  Now keep in mind as a Design Team member we get the Banana Split level, the whole shebang.  But we are assigned different levels to focus on for the Blog Hop.  The remainder we do for additional blog posts on the SFL Blog the rest of the month.
 
Ok, so enough suspense.

Do you want to know how many I got?

Ready?

You're NOT going to BELIEVE how many!!!


YES, I got 43 cards from this month's Banana Split level.
Isn't that just crazy?!?!?!?  I literally had nothing but scraps no bigger than my pinkie finger left over.
That means for the price of the Banana Split level I made 43 cards for LESS THAN $1 per card!!!
There's no way you cannot agree that the value isn't there.  It's unmistakable!!

Here is an awesome unboxing video of August's Flavor of the Month Card Kit. 



Ok, so enough with my hooting and hollering, jumping up and down with excitement, I will now show you my 16 cards using the 4 collections and all 4 sketches using the free download sketch sheets you can find here.  I will have 2 blog posts next week on the SFL Blog showcasing all 43 cards, so be on the look out for those.

Concord and 9th Is Joining Scrapping for Less


Thanks for joining us today! The wonderful company of Concord and 9th is joining the Scrapping for Less family this month. Concord and 9th is a relatively new company on the horizon (or at least new to us!) We couldn’t be happier to offer their fabulous stamps and dies for you. Join in and hop along and see the fabulous projects the Design Team has created for you today. You can view the Concord and 9th items HERE and be sure to check out the blog post from Tuesday with some insight to the Concord and 9th family and company.

Now onto our line up:
Stacy (that's me!)

For my card I chose to use two stamp sets, the Give Thanks and the Tree Ring Background.   I used my Gina Marie Stitched Rectangle dies to cut out my black card panel. I took the Tree Ring Background stamp and stamped it in the lower right hand corner with Versamark ink. I then heat embossed it with Ranger Detail Clear embossing powder.  Next I took the Give Thanks stamp set and heat embossed three of the leaf sprigs, two in Ranger Detail Silver and one in Ranger Black Sparkle embossing powders. I also heat 
embossed the Thanks sentiment with Ranger Super Fine Detail White embossing powder. Next I fussy cut out the three sprigs and the Thanks sentiment.  I made a "messy nest" with some silver metallic thread and adhered the sprigs and sentiment with foam tape on top of the thread to hold it in place. To finish it off I mounted the black panel to a top fold portrait white card base.  

 I think it turned out super nice. 

Here's a close up of the cluster:

Maybe you can even make enough for the rest of the year! Join along as the Design Team wows you with all the awesome creations they have for you sharing this fabulous kit!

Don’t forget to head on back to the Scrapping for Less Blog after you hop along to enter the Rafflecopter for an awesome prize!

Now onto our line up:
Stacy (that's me!)

Once again, I made a TON of cards from this awesome card kit. I was assigned to highlight the Double Dip level for the blog hop. I have made all 4 sketches from each of the 4 collections.   For details of the card kit please keep reading.
I made a total of 32 cards from this kit. I got 8 cards out of each collection with plenty of scraps to still make more cards. I'll be showing all of those cards on the SFL blog next week, so be on the look out for those blog posts. 




Card Kit details

Here's a quick overview of the fantastic value you receive in each level of the kit. You can choose a three month subscription to save even more money or just purchase the months you choose. All of the details are listed here on the Scrapping For Less website. 


Single Scoop:  You will get 4 collections. Each collection has 6-6x6 papers and a stamp set. You also will receive 4 envelopes and 8 pieces of 8 1/2" x 11" cardstock of assorted colors and white. 


Double Dip:  You get everything in the Single Scoop option PLUS an embellishment pack for EACH of the four collections. The embellishment pack may contain buttons, bling, twine, ribbon, stickers, enamel shapes/dots, sequins, brads and more. 


Deluxe:  You get everything in the Double Dip option PLUS a fantastic coordinating die. 


Banana Split:  This gets you EVERYTHING!  All three of the Single Scoop, Double Dip and Deluxe options PLUS even more goodies like ink pads, an additional stamp set, tags, ephemera, embossing folders to just name a few. 

In my option the Banana Split is the only way to go.  When you can make at least 32 cards from this kit I feel the kit proves to be well worth the awesome price. Plus you will have stamps, dies, inks, embossing folders and other goodies that you can add to your stash and be able to use over and over again.

Proud to Announce......

Hello my friends.  I have some exciting news! 
 
 I was just asked to join the design team for Scrapbook Blessings Club.  It was something that was presented to me tonight, and I jumped at the chance.  I enjoy creating cards and other paper craft projects and look forward to sharing my creative passion with the followers of SBC.  
 
About 6 months ago I was blessed to join Teresa's design team over at Scrapping For Less.  I am not going anywhere.  You will still see me all over the place at Scrapping For Less.  I have learned a lot from Teresa and she has allowed me to grow as a designer and blogger to develop my confidence.  I've very much enjoyed being on her team and plan to be a member for as long as she will have me. 
 
When Sandy, the owner of Scrapbook Blessings Club and co-design team member at Scrapping For Less, approached me tonight with the opportunity to join her team, I didn't hesitate.  My goal is to continue to develop my skills and talents as a card designer and blogger as well as youtuber.  Creating is my sanity outlet.  I look forward to creating for SBC. 
 
Thanks for visiting,
Stacy

30 cards from Scrapping For Less JUNE Flavor of the Month Card Kit

Yes, you heard right. 30 cards from this month's kit. I could have gotten a couple more if I wanted to make some with tiny scraps into a quilt like pattern but I thought 30 sounded like a good number to stop at. I still had tons of stickers and sequins left, I just ran out of pattern paper. So if you own pads in the same paper you could continue on and on until you used everything up. 

I heard June's kit sold out in as little as 60 something hours. So if you want to make sure you are guaranteed a kit you might want to consider signing up for the subscription, plus you save more $$ with a subscription. 

For full details and to purchase, visit this link: Flavor of the Month Card Kit  of the Month Card Kit on the Scrapping For Less website. 

First photo of each collection shows the four sketches that Teresa provides with the kit. The second photo is the remainder of that collection using ideas from my own brain. Lol!  I hope you like them and draw inspiration.
