Welcome to the Club Scrap The Blues bloghop.
If you arrived here from Tricia's blog you are in the right place. If you arrived here from somewhere else and would like to start at the beginning of the bloghop, go HERE to the Club Scrap blog.
This month I subscribed to the Club Scrap Digital Kit, the Art Nouveau Stamp, Club Stamp Kit, Unmounted Borders and Backgrounds Stamp, and the Embellishment Pack.
I get my digital kit on the first day of the month. When I saw the sentiment in the kit that said "Why yes, I do frequently burst out in song," my father immediately came to mind. Here is a tribute page I did for him when he was a member of the "Sunshine Serenaders." They went to nursing homes and performed songs for the elderly. One song they always sang was The 3 Caballeros (Check out this link to hear and see the song performed by Donald Duck and Friends). I used a blueprint from Pixels2Pages to start my page out.
My Dad said that many times after a performance, a nurse or aide would tell them that people who normally did not respond to anything would perk up and sing along with certain songs. That's why I love the quote "Music can change the world." It has and always will speak to our souls.
Here's some cards made with the Club Scrap Stamp Kit that ships on the 20th of the month
I like how the stamps can be used as smaller designs or left together as a larger design. I used Chipped Sapphire Distressed ink. For the musical background I stamped it with Craft White ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I can see using this stamp set for some nice notecards for a music teacher end of school year gift.
Sadly Operation Write Home will be closing down on 1 August and I will need to find another outlet for my numerous cards I love to make. You can find out more about the Operation Write Home Finish Strong Campaign HERE.
