Calendar pages

Today I'm sharing on Youtube the final look at the calendar pages that I have done as a gift for my grandmother.

You can see the video here:
And I wanted to share here the closer look at the last 2 pages that I had not shared with you guys yet.  For those I used some oddball images that I thought where perfect :)

For the month of September I'm using the image 324
 The image was colored with my copics and then fussy cut out.  I used some left over papers in my stash as well as a little calendar that was found at the dollarstore.

For the month of March I wasn't sure if it was the Easter month... and it wasn't should have checked before lol but that is why I used a little rabbit.  I used a lot of green as well because of St-Patrick's day.  The flower embellishments were in my stash as was the papers.
I colored the cute rabbit with my copics and then fussy cut him out.

I'm entering these calendars in the following challenges:

  1. Crafting musketeers - Anything goes
  2. Crafty hazelnuts patterned paper - Anything goes with pattern paper :)  Got lots here
  3. ccc digi creations - Anything goes
  4. Not just cards challenges - Anything goes
  5. Petallu challenge blog - Anything goes
That's it for me for today!  Hope you have a fab Friday.

More Christmas cards

Hello!  Not feeling all that good recently.  Stayed home with huge headache and dizziness.... got a feeling my blood pressure is giving me issues... The joys of getting older?!?

Anyway here are some other Christmas cards that I made using some fabulous images from Oddball part of the new release!!!  They are just FABULOUS.

For the 1st one I decided to make it for a couple that added 2 new puppies to their family this year.  I'm pretty sure that this image wasn't supposed to be used in this way but I thought the bones were just PERFECT!!!!  The image on that one is image 351
I didn't have the background paper that would fit this so I made it using a lot of little paw stamps that were just sitting in my stash!  I also added some little puffy stickers.  The sentiment was found using google.  The image was colored using my copics.

For the 2nd one I thought this would make a wonderful boy's card and that's what I did this is the card that I sent to my little nephew who will be turning 5 in 2017.  The image for that one is Image 352
The paper is from the Bobunny elf collection.  I used some puffy sticker border and 2 flat back pearls.  The image was colored with my copics and I added some stickles to the hat.

The next card is for my little niece.  Needed something special for her as well.  And when I saw the image 353.  It was just PERFECT for this card.  I added her name of course as the 1st one on the list and then the other family members :)  thought it really completed this and made it personal.
 The paper is again bobunny - elf collection  (the rest from the previous card).  The red one is the backing of stickers from the dollarstore!  (YAY for recycling).  The little gifts are shaker stickers.  The image was colored with my copics and again I used soem stickles on the hat.

And finally I made this card for a friend that I adore.  I figured she would appreciate the image and the colors.  Here it's image 355.
For this card I used paper is from Keeping Cozy Echo Park as well as Little Yellow bicycle.  I used a Martha Stewart paper punch.  I used a little bit of lace as well.  The snowflakes are K &cie stickers.  The image was colored with my copics and I added some gell roll pen to the wings and stars.  The sentiment is from Create with TLC and I put some distress ink all around it.

I hope these will have inspired you.

I'm entering them in the following challenges:
  1. Addicted to stamps-challenge - Holiday
  2. Christmas at sweet stampin challenge blog - Anything Christmas - I thought the paw one was good as it involved actual stamping
  3. The maleroom challenge blog - Christmas - I'm entering the little bear that is for my little nephew :)  a small little man 
  4. Crafty creations challenges - Masculine - the little card with the bear for my nephew
  5. Cardz 4 guyz - Christmas animals - well could have entered the paw ones... but figured you would prefer to see an animal hence the little bear being entered.
  6. Dis digi designs challenge - Traditional Christmas colors - figured my little niece cards fit in that :)
That's it for me for today.  I hope that I will be feeling better and off to work!!!!

December Daily and Christmas is coming

Hello!  Happy Saturday to all of you.  Hope you have a fun weekend planned!  In my case going to a Christmas party with my hubby and that will take sometime away from crafting (oh no lol) but it should still be fun.

I have been doing my December daily as was mentioned in the following video where I showed the book that I altered for this purpose.

Since my b-day is in the month of December it was appropriate to decorate a page for this especially.  And I used a fabulous image from Oddball's newest release for this.  The image is Image 357. My daughter thought she looked sad... but I thought it really fit the fact that I'm not that excited about getting older lol

I colored the image with my copics and I put some gell roll pen on the hat to make it shiny.  The backing for the image is a red packaging from a dollarstore purchase!  Love being able to reuse some items this way.

I also wanted to share with you a Christmas card that I made that is totally out of the typical Christmas card norm.  But I LOVE that!  I used the great image 356 for it.  I found a sentiment from Dylusion that I thought was just PERFECT for it.
The paper that I used is from Hot cocoa by American Craft.  I added some K stickers found at the dollar store.  The image was colored with my copics as well as some pebbles chalk.  I really love that it's Christmas wiht the little lights on the fence and such and she's also wearing Christmas clothes but it's acknowledging that it was just Thanksgiving in the States :)

I'm entering the card in the following challenges:

  1. Left of center challenges - Fair maiden 
  2. Aloha friday challenges - Christmas
  3. Patties creations challenge - Christmas
  4. The stamping boutique challenge blog - Non traditional Christmas
  5. Christmas blog challenge - Night scene
That's it for me for today.  Hope you have a great Day!!!!
