4 of a Kind-January


Time flies.  It's my turn again to play hostess for our 4 of a Kind club which consists of four friends who love to stamp and make cards. We take turns hosting the club and sending the other members a kit of identical ingredients that are used to make a card which is revealed on our blogs a few weeks later.  Every single month the kits have been so creative and I had a really hard time trying to come up with a kit that was anything close to as good as my three friends, Renee, Joyce and Kim have sent me.  I wanted to do something a little different this month, so this is the kit I sent to everyone.
I included some beautiful patterned papers by Authentique from the "Uncommon" collection.  I also made a couple of notepad templates and included notepads and stamped images from Papertrey Inks Take Note stamp set.  There was some ribbon, buttons, felt flower diecuts, paper clips and a Tim Holtz rosette.

Here is what I made with my kit:
First up, a mini notepad, just the right size to pop in my purse.  It has a little mini pen attached and a 3 x 3 Sticky Notepad on the inside.  

Next up, a matching card.

I cheated a bit and made myself another Tim Holtz Rosette to use as the focal point.  This time I used a sentiment from Papertrey Ink Flutterby Friend and a melon berry felt rolled flower as a pop of color.  The card edges are cut with a Spellbinder Edgeability die with an interesting tulip shaped edge. 

Here are the two projects together:
Now that you have seen my projects, please go take a look at what my three friends have done with their kits.

Love the elements of the kit, what you all did with them and the idea to share in the first place. Thanks for the inspiration!

Cathy, both of these are just so beautiful, but then how can you go wrong with all of the incredible ingredients you sent. Love the way both your card and note pad coordinate as well, just fabulous!

Joyce said...

Your kits were amazing--I'm sure you can see how much I loved every single thing you sent. You know, I've been wanting to make a note pad and post it holder for ages, and now I have both! I love what you have done with the kit for yourself. Such creative edging. For some crazy reason, I couldn't figure out how to use that rolled rose, but I may go back and stick one on, just like you did.
