Birthday Wishes

I saw this layout in tackertwosomes gallery on SCS and just had to CASE it. It was really easy to make and I just love everything about it. I started with some doublesided DP, then I got out my nesties and ribbon. I finished the card with some baby pearls and now I can't wait to send this to the perfect birthday girl!

2011 Calendar

Happy New Year!! I do hope the new year is starting out well for everyone.

My post today is a 2011 Calendar I made using a kit I received from my Swap Sister over at SCS.

I enjoyed making this calendar so much I want to make a couple more for gifts.

I started by coloring the flowers with my Spica Twinkling Like Stars Markers.

Next I used my die cuts to cut out the flowers, cardstock and a window on the designer paper.

I mounted the flowers on cardstock to match the flowers and the months to the back of the designer paper.

Next I made page corners for the top right and bottom left corners using a Martha Stewart border bunch.

I used my SU flower trio punch to punch the little flowers again using the same cardstock I used to match flower colors.

Next I added stickles to the center of the little flowers and then sponged the corners and calendar with the same ink as the cardstock.

I then finished each page by adding a quote.

I want to send another thank you to Sue, you couldn't have picked a better gift :-)

My SCS Swap Sisters are the best sisters in craft land!
