When you started working on your club, what was the first thing you did?
Anyone that has talked to me knows I always work in this order:
This club was no different for the most part except for the name came after I was done with most of the papers.
Where did you find the inspiration for this club?
This one was kind of strange because several months ago I posted a “I want to design and need ideas” thread on the message board. From that came several great ideas, I jotted them all down, and like normal as soon as the design bug hit me something else came up and pulled me away. So when I started thinking of club ideas, I opened up that list again and started with that.
The club includes several products. Did you start and complete each one before moving on to the next?
I always, do my papers first. By doing this I can separate them into the different club pieces and it helps me get an idea of what direction to go with each of them. After the papers were all finished, then I work on finishing up the collection biggie, followed by the JIF item and finally the remaining embellishment and word art mini.

What was your favorite thing to design?
I love the grungy papers. You can do so many things with them and create so many different styles of layouts. I like them so much I included 2 sets. One is the paper mini, but the other is a set of 6 that’s the Members Only item. And will only be available to club members, so if you like them you better sign up or you won’t be able to get them anywhere else.
If you could pick only one word to describe your club, what would that word be?
I would have to go with Shabby, that’s the one word that I kept in mind when designing the club.
About how long did it take you to design this club?
I procrastinated alot with this one. And I think it’s because I had so many ideas and such pulled together already I felt like I was ahead of schedule. When I sat down and designed it was finished in a couple of weeks.
How did you come up with the name of your club?
I was stuck with names on this one. So I showed a few samples of things to a friends and she actually came up with the name.
I hope you enjoy this month’s club. Like I do with all my products I really tried to make it as versatile as I could so it would work for just about everyone and you could find something to use in it for any layout you are creating.
I can’t wait to see the layouts in the gallery.
