Calendars Complete.

Me and a few of my friends have been working on this project in some manner since July. Lots of time co-ordinating it, lots of time doing the work, and still there I was at 2 am last night trying to get mine finished. We did 2 months each, 6 pages of each month and swapped them out today. I love how different all the pages are. No one company is featured more than another - the whole idea was to use your stash cuz you just know we have too much of everything. So there they are, in all their splendid glory. Next year, recipe books and another calendar.

Christmas centre piece

So the question is, is it papercrafting if you are using wrapping paper??? I saw this neat idea at a craft fair (sorry, it's just the nature of us crafters to "lift" ideas). I used gift shirt boxes and redesigned them to these shapes. Picked up a few decorative things to cut, pull, and tear apart to use however and added to the stash I have collected over the years. Stuck it all on a charger plate and voila! neat center piece. Of course hubby wanted to know if the gifts were for him lol.
Happy scramping.

Holidays are a comin'

It has been a mad house around here, mostly cuz I am insane when hubby is away lol. He is home now and I am back on track for paper crafting. Here are a couple tags I created for a swap
I am in with other consultants. The first tag is O Christmas Tree using the sentifment from Magical Season (CTMH) While the cardstock, ribbon and stamp are CTMH the incidental beads and brad are from my stash. The second tag is all CTMH with the image being from the stamp set Gloria. I actually enjoyed just sitting back and using my markers to colour it all in while watching TV. I heat embossed the intire image in clear 3 times so it would be nice and thick. Now I have to finish cutting paper for tomorrows class and then assemble my calendar for a friend swap I am in. Til then...

Where's the time go

Holy moly I have been busy doing nothing!!! Actually I have been cutting paper for upcoming classes mostly and did put together this layout for the class at the end of the month. The class is on Monday Nov 24th at 7 pm OR Saturday November 29th at 1 pm. Cost is $5, please bring your own adhesive. RSVP by November 22nd.
I joined a swap with other CTMH consultants working on gift tags. I am trying to come up with a WOW idea or two and have been using the new Gloria stamp set for the first time. Will post a pic when I get it figured out ^^
Hubby is away hunting and it is always hard to get motivated to do anything, cook, clean, function (lol) and never make it to bed at a decent hour. Only 10 more days and he will be home - of course that's when the work begins making sausage!!!
