Hello Club Q fans, I can totally see why you would fall in
love with March’s Club Q. Neva here
today to share with you how I stretched the contents of the March Ultimate
Combo kit into seven layouts! When I
opened my kit, I was delighted that it featured the new Spring Showers, as the
coordinating side not shown in the Club offering is all these lovely floral
motifs. Along with the more masculine
diamond pattern, I planned to make coordinating Mother and Father Day layouts.
First up is the layout that will go in my album for Mother’s
The centers of the blue sheet and floral sheet
have been trimmed to be used as the center mat.
With the double mat layout, it is all hidden!
Smaller accent photos are matted with the center
of the die cut circles as well as circle die cuts from additional paper in the kit.
The title is stamped in Capri Blue on vellum timmed to the banner shape, and
heat embossed with iridescent embossing powder.
Capri Blue and Island Orange are used to ink the
The flowers are shaped slightly before adhering
to the layout.
The vellum adhered with glue behind the stamped
area and the right edge under the circle.
All the photos are journaled on the frame edges.

Next I created
layouts that will go into my boys’ albums.
As you can see, even though they feature different Spring Showers papers
they coordinate beautifully. The design and colors are similar, a great feature of scrapping with a kit!
Again, the centers are trimmed and used in the
The Mother’s Day photos are journaled on the
The Father’s Day photos are matted and have
small journaling strips.
A close up of the title for the one page Mother’s Day layout:

The sentiment is stamped in Capri Blue on vellum
and is placed over the center tag.
The shaped frame is adhered over the top.
The fabric flower base is formed over a large
glue dot with die cut flowers added to the center. (The fabric was cut into two sections, one for each layout.)
A die cut butterfly is inked in Capri Blue and
I think these two elements hide the “unfinished
look” of the top edge of the title and add a nice balance to the layout.

The Father’s Day title is less involved and decidedly more
The sentiment is stamped in Capri Blue.
Raffia is wrapped around the top of the
Thin sections of raffia are threaded through the
button and it is adhered over onto the banner.
Yes, I did scrap three identical layouts for Father's Day, one for my album and one for each of the boys' albums. With careful trimming I was able to use the two layout kits and the mini album kit to have enough matching papers!
Here are the two single page Mother's Day layouts I created for my boys' albums. They may not appreciate girly layouts in their scrapbooks right now . . . but I know they will appreciate having these photos in years to come
I have one more layout that I will share in a future post, to finish off
the Ultimate Combo kit. This is what I have left over . . . perhaps a card or two? It is fun to finish off a kit, and know that you really spent your money well!
My favorite part of the March Ultimate kit was the altered Canvas. I used the photo from our photo Christmas card greeting sent out for 2017 and the colors for the canvas were perfect!
I swiped the large blue
paper for the layouts above, but center section trimmed from behind is
large enough to make the canvas. The photo mats were adjusted to fit the photo I choose for the canvas. I also used up the rest of the pearl embellishments to add a little extra bling. This is now proudly hanging in my home!
By mix and matching from all four
kits I was able to create duplicate layouts in record time. Thanks for
stopping by today and see what you can create from the B side of the
Club Q kits!
