I've missed visiting with you but I expect that you have been as busy as I have been. As of a few minutes ago, I have put away all of the "Christmas" stamp sets and supplies. With them I put a list of the things I wish I could have done this year-I plan to start in August for next Christmas. The packages are wrapped and under the tree. The third batch of homemade rolls and the cinnamon rolls will be made tomorrow. We are so excited about Christmas morning with our two year old grandson. I am ready to sit back and enjoy the view!
But, for now, I want to share with you a project that gave me great pleasure to create. I know that practically no one uses a desk calendar anymore, but, I like the idea of giving a little beauty that lets the receiver know that she is important to me and that I think of her everyday. So here is the calendar I made for my friend Jan. Since there are so many pictures, I have only noted the products that are not from PAPERTREY INK.
Soft Pool Shadow Ink, Hero Arts
Worn Lipstick Distress Ink, applied with an AquaPen
Copic Marker - Y21
London Fog Dye Ink-Memento
Rose Bud Dye Ink-Memento
EK Success flower punch, 1/4" hole punch
Sentiment: Verve Stamps, Let it Shine
Copic Markers, Sakura Clear Star Pen
"Happy Birthday"-Hero Arts
Versamark Ink, Zing Embossing Powder: Leaf
Patterned Paper: Basic Grey, Out of Print
Perfect Pearls: Biscotti, Perfect Medium, Versamark Ink
Distress Inks: Scattered Straw, Vintage Photo, Gathered Twigs, Shabby Shutters
The December page was actually my submission for a Make-It-Monday #39: Multi-Stamp Background Building and was the starting point for the whole calendar. It didn't take long for me to figure out that to create a separate page for every month was a bigger undertaking than I anticipated! It seems that I can make any project more difficult than it needs to be! None the less, I had a great time making this and I think Jan will enjoy it all year.
Some of you actually asked to see this finished project! I hope you will enjoy it, too.
Thanks for stopping by,
