Scrap Girls Club Craft

I have a confession to make: I’m not crafty.

You’d think since I’m a Layout Artist that I would be, right? Well, I’m not. I’ve tried my hand at many different crafts, including painting ceramic village pieces, paper scrapbooking, and painting with Donna Dewberry. I wasn’t very good at any of them. I think I had the most success with crocheting, but even that couldn’t get too fancy without me finding a way to mess it up.

So when I get the assignments for the Scrap Girls Club craft, I am a mixture of emotions. I’m a ball of excitement (because I always love the club kits) wrapped up in a thick coating of fear. I’m especially terrible about coming up with a craft. Pinterest came to my rescue this time. I remembered a craft that I pinned a little while back, so I decided to do something similar. I’m especially proud of myself because I didn’t even go back to look at my pin. I just remembered the basic concept and figured it out.

The idea is basically a cluster of frames with glass, and I can write on the glass with a dry erase marker. Each frame is designated with a day of the week. I really love this idea because my husband likes to have an idea of what our week looks like. Having this frame collection on the wall next to the door we use to enter/exit the house is the perfect solution.

First, I found a frame on clearance that just happens to be a cluster of eight 4x6-inch frames. It’s perfect because there will be one frame for each day of the week and one frame for my title page. Then I set about making my layouts. I wanted them to be simple but pretty. They needed to have fairly solid background papers so that when I write on the glass, it will be readable. Here is what I came up with:

Scrap Girls Club Tutorial: Days of the week frame cluster.

The next step was to prepare my frames. The frame cluster I found has four raised frames and four recessed frames. I decided to leave the recessed frames alone but I wanted the raised frames to have some character. I printed out a couple of the patterned papers in Brandy’s Sweet Street Grunge Collection Biggie. (I used photo paper but you could use cardstock if that’s what you have on hand.)

You’ll need your frame/frames, something to cut with (I used a craft knife), sandpaper, some form of glue (I used Mod Podge®), and a foam brush.

Scrap Girls Club Tutorial: Assemble the layouts within the frame cluster.

First, I cut the patterned papers to size with the craft knife. Then, I prepared the surface of the frame by sanding it. My frame has a pretty slick surface so I wanted to make sure my glue had something to grab. Next, I applied glue with a foam brush and adhered the cut papers. Since I used photo paper with a luster finish, I was able to stop here. If I had used cardstock, I would have applied another layer or two of glue over the top to give it a bit more protection. I also would have sprayed a layer or two of a sealing spray because the glue can remain tacky.

Finally, I was able to insert the layouts into the frames, hang it, and start writing our weekly schedule on it. My husband and I both look at it frequently, and I can honestly say that it has already saved me from missing a dentist appointment!

Games

March's Forum Game: Simple Steps to Super Scrapping

This month's Scrap Girls Forum game, Simple Steps to Super Scrapping, is designed to help you get more scrapbook pages done with a series of simple steps that add up to a finished page at the end of each week.

Throughout March, Monday through Saturday, a team member will post a daily layout step in the Simple Steps to Super Scrapping game thread; the first week has 9 steps, and the remaining three weeks have 6 steps each. These steps will be posted in large purple font so they will be easy to spot.

Members who complete the steps required in the game thread and post all 4 layouts in the Simple Steps to Super Scrapping Gallery will be entered in a drawing for one of two $15.00 Scrap Girls Boutique Gift Certificates.

Each completed layout posted in the Simple Steps to Super Scrapping Gallery, up to 4 per member, will be entered in a drawing for one of three $5.00 Scrap Girls Boutique Gift Certificates.

You have until 11:59pm MDT on March 31, 2012 to complete the steps and post your layouts to the Simple Steps to Super Scrapping Gallery.

For complete details, visit the Monthly Message Board Games folder on the Scrap Girls Forum.
