Since I did not recieve a calendar for Christmas this year and I haven't ventured out to the mall since, I decided to make my own. I knew that I really wanted to use the very beautiful Blissful line by Authentique. Love the yellow/black/grey mix. I decided to go with the 6x6 papers. Little project, little papers. Everything else was from my stash. I used Autumn Press and Stampin' Up stamps, StazOn Jet black ink, yellow bakers twine, Jenni Bowlin butterfly stickers, buttons & bling, heavy silver-grey cord, silver glitter clips, Adirondack silver paint dabber, black & silver thread for stitching, yellow glitter paper from AC, calendar pages from Janna (Wilson) for Junkitz. a couple of paper punches and some corrugated:
It took a while to come up with an idea and...here it is. I made this:
Here is a close up of the top. Look at all this Authentique goodness!
Here is close up of the bottom. Lots of stamping goodness!
Now I have a calendar. A pretty new one, that actually starts in February. That's okay though, better late than never.
On February 1st, the biggest card making blog hop starts. I had so much fun with my card sketch, I can't wait to share it with YOU!
Til then here is the awesome RAK prize I am giving away to my winner:
Some very cool papers from Simple Stories called Year-o-graphy, some assorted bakers twine, some bling, some pretty glitter cardstock and black foam thicker letters. I am sure I will add more to it too. I love to give away scrappy prizes!
