Calendar pages

In a swap on the YPP ...I had to do Calendar pages for Feb and July. I love the way they turned out and hope that the ladies in my group do as well. I can't wait to see the complete calendar when the hostess returns them to us.

Here is my Feb....I used a paper doily, inked it with TH Dist. Inks in brushed corduroy, walnut, and tattered rose to give them the antique feel. I then aged the calendar the same way and heat set them. I used *George* cricut cart to make Primitive hearts. Then wrapped them in a pink twine., added pearls in brown, pink and cream. Used clear gem flourish to the bottom to give the extra zing it need. LOVE THEM!!!

July I used the *Stand & Salute* cricut cart for the Liberty Bell. Added stars in red/blue and a TH Memo pin to hold the calendar. I like them...but not like the  Sorry...just realized I didn't take July photos..uggghhhh
Thanks for looking.

Vintage Christmas Calling cards

These are actually called rolodex cards...but they are used for holding info on a rolodex. The theme was Vintage Christmas and I truely enjoyed the way they look. Used a variety of vintaged/aged themed papers and Heartfelt Creations Vintage tags....each different. I then sprayed and crinkled seam binding to give the Christmas feel to the deep green/red colors. Used Whimsy Ticket die and stamps for Christmas to play in the TH Memo am happy with my creations.


Christmas Match Box

I love how this turned out. I took a match box purchased with matches from Dollar General. I emptied it out...and then started  to give the box a NEW look. My sis for the swap wanted Deep greens and reds for the theme. Here is my take on her idea. I used Papers from Tim HOltz Seasonal stack....and gave it the VINTAGE vibe. I used a plaid green/cream/red gingham ribbon along with a wider cream crocheted ribbon from my stash. Used cream prima flowers and inked them just a hint to give them color...I then added clear snowflakes and flourishes to give the Wintery affect it needed. ENJOY Cherie!!!

We had to make a dangel...2 flowers and 3 pins to place inside the box. My flowers are of her fav colors.
