Hi everyone!  Thanks for visiting today.  I have a small assortment of calendars to show you that I have been working on over the last few days.  I have had a crazy week at work and have really missed stamping but was able to put these together with 15 minutes here and 20 minutes there.  Some of you may know that I work at Smith and Hawken and all of the stores will be closing this fall, so I will have more "minutes" in the future, but in the meantime, things are a little crazy!  
This first uses K & Co. dp, EK Success border punch and some brown leaf ribbon that I have been hoarding for a couple of years.  The shape of my calendars is created using the oversize curved rectangle from Spellbinders.
This next one was actually the first one I made last week.  I used a Karen Lockheart butterfly stamp and coloured with my Copics and then cut out and glazed with crystal effects.  I added the K & Co. rhinestones for a little bling and the pom pom trim is from Ellen Hutson's store.  Both colours of card stock are from my stash of Bazzil linen that I have had for a few years.  I also used a border punch under the pom pom trim.

The calendar below is made with SU Not Quite Navy cs that I put through the textile folder with my CB and the flower is cut out from some K & Co. dp and backed onto the NQN cs and I put a velvet brad into the center of the flower.  I think the flower overhang gives it more interest.  The printed twill is one that I had in my stash and I think that I got it at Michael's.  Thanks for visiting!

  1. Those are beautiful! The butterfly is so sweet & the brown leaf ribbon is perfect, but my fave is the NQN one. I sure do love that color and your texture & details are wonderful!


Thanks for taking a peek and leaving a comment :)
