This week I am changing things up a bit. So far I have been focusing on cards, and I have created one this week, but I also needed to work on other projects. This week I am finishing up a 2013 desk calendar for my father. Yes I am aware that is is already Feb. But in my own defense, I will get the calendars to my parents earlier then I did last year. :)
Project #12: This week I used a number of stamp sets to create layer elements for my calendar pages.
Supplies: Stamps (Tim Holtz, 7 Gypsies, unknown), punches (circles and tags), ticket die (Sizzix), ink, embossing powder, cardstock and pattern paper.
Below you can see one of the calendar pages and how I used the elements. This is a great way to use stamps on your scrapbook pages. I used a number of punches and dies to create the tags, clocks, tickets and circles. This calendar design was part of a class I taught last fall, Gifts From the Heart. Since we used it in a class I cannot show you the entire calendar. This page is representative of all of the pages, they are simple and fast to create. The whole calendar can be created in an afternoon.
Project #13: Thinking of You-I love these spiral stamps.....but they don't love me. LOL! I found it very difficult to get a complete stamped image. I opted to complete the card anyway and post it. Sometimes things don't come out the way we had hoped. I am choosing to make the blog about everything I create, the good, the bad and the ugly. Still I love the stamps and will keep them.
Thanks for stopping by.
