Country Club Happy Birthday Book

Today’s project, a birthday book, is an example of a non-golf specific project made with the Country Club Suite. I made the book using the Clubhouse stamp set, Golf Club Dies, Absolutely Argyle 3D embossing folder, and Country Club Designer Series Paper.

  • CS cut to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, then scored in half at 4-1/4″ (one each of Whisper White Thick, Night of Navy, Crushed Curry, Poppy Parade, Garden Green, and Basic Black) for pages
  • Country Club Designer Series Paper (DSP) cut to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, then scored in half at 4-1/4″ (one piece of each non-golf-specific pattern) for pages
  • Crushed Curry CS layer cut to 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″
  • Basic Black CS cut to 11″ x 3-1/2″, and scored at 4-3/4″, 5″, 9-3/4″, and 10″ for the belly band
  • DSP layer cut to 4-5/8″ x 3-3/8″
  • CS cut to 3-1/2” x 3-1/2″ (two each of Whisper White Thick, Night of Navy, Crushed Curry, Poppy Parade, Garden Green, and Basic Black) for tabbed inserts

Stamped with the Clubhouse stamp set:

  • sentiment in black Memento ink onto a scrap of Whisper White Thick CS

Cut using the Golf Club Dies:

  • sentiment
  • 4 pieces from scraps of each color of CS using the crest shape die

Embossed using the Absolutely Argyle embossing folder:

  • Crushed Curry CS layer

Assembled the book:

  • burnished all the folds in the CS and DSP pieces with a Bone Folder
  • one side of a CS page glued onto one side of a DSP page, along the fold, top and bottom (being careful not to glue along the outer edge, because this will make a pocket)
  • remaining pages glued together the same way, alternating CS and DSP, until they are all glued together in a book (each double-thickness page should have a pocket)
  • first and last pages glued the same way inside the Poppy Parade CS cover, creating more pockets
  • tabs on CS inserts created by gluing 2 die cut crests together, with the insert between them, then the inserts stuck inside the pockets
  • Basic Black CS belly band glued onto the Poppy Parade CS cover on the back, spine, and front
  • embossed Crushed Curry CS layer glued onto the front of the Poppy Parade CS cover, covering the end of the Basic Black belly band
  • thin velcro fastener applied onto the inside of the belly band and the embossed Crushed Curry CS layer
  • DSP layer glued onto the front of the belly band
  • sentiment adhered onto the DSP layer using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals

A Good Man Country Club Note Card

In keeping with the theme of the last couple weeks, today I’m sharing another project I made for Stampin’ Up!’s OnStage event using the Country Club Suite. And again, I used these new products with a stamp set from the Annual Catalog; this time I used A Good Man. The sentiment seemed so appropriate for this golf themed suite. Everyone has their own favorite way of relaxing. This card is perfect for someone who enjoys relaxing on the golf course.

Greatest Guy by Par Mini Pizza Box

Today’s project is sort of a stepped up version of yesterday’s note card. Along with die cuts, I’ve also used wooden Country Club Elements to decorate a Mini Pizza Box. 

Tip: The wooden golf clubs are not as long as they appear on this project. The wood is soft, so I used my Paper Snips to cut the clubs in half. At first, I did this just so I could cross them without worrying about the thickness. Then I moved the halves apart to make them look longer. The crest covered the gaps.

Country Club Father’s Day Note Card & Envelope

Today’s Whisper White Note Card and Envelope were adorned for Father’s Day using the new Country Club Suite. It’s easy to line the envelope. Just trace around the open envelope for the shape, then cut it out using Paper Snips. Stick it in the envelope, far enough so the envelope adhesive still shows, and glue it in place.

On To Adventure at the Country Club

When a new catalog comes out with lots of great new products, one thing I like to do is see how I can use the new stuff with the older stuff. Today’s card is an example of that. I used the Country Club Suite (from the new Spring Mini Catalog) with the On to Adventure stamp set (from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.) There’s a golfer image in the On to Adventure set, so it goes perfectly with the new golf themed suite. This is a perfect “congratulations on your retirement” card for someone who plans to play a lot of golf.
