2014-2015 Calendar

For our final challenge, we were to make a calendar, to do list, booklet or journal for a friend to use in 2014.

I altered, rather than making a calendar.  This time of year, you can pick up these 2-year calendars for $1.00 and I grabbed a bunch to alter and give away as last minute Christmas gifts. The shaded section on the Crumb Cake card stock on the back of the calendar is from the gloss of the plastic holder.

Stamps: Everything Eleanor & Wetland
DSP: Soho SubwayDSP, Season of Style DSP,  Crumb Cake Card Stock
Inks: VersaMark, Chocolate Chip
Embossing Powder: Clear; Cherry Cobbler

Chocolates For You

Holiday Focus:  Since December 24th is National Chocolate Day, we were challenged to make a card using chocolate chip on it.  I CASED this card from Grannytranny's gallery.

Since my card has 'pretend' chocolate on it, I decided to make a mug and fill it with real chocolate (DH's fav).

There's You

This is a card I made for my daughter who is currently serving a tour in Afghanistan.  If all goes well and her tour is not extended again, we will celebrate Christmas with her this year.

As part of the SCS Creative Crew, our color focus is the Modern Medley Designer Series Paper (Stampin' Up!) or  Stampin' Up!'s Basic Black and Very Vanilla card Stock.  We were also to C.A.S.E. (Copy And Share Everything) someone we admire and give them credit.  I CASE'd the very talented Karen Barber.  I love every card she creates and this is the card I chose to case.

Karen used the 'Elements of Style' stamp from Stampin' Up!.  Since my daughter is so far away, I used the Stampin' Up! 'World Map' background stamp.

Stamp Sets: 
World Map, Chalk talk, Wetlands

Black StazOn

Very Vanilla, Basic Black, and Vellum Card Stock

Other Supplies:
Very Vanilla Ribbon; Lacy Brocade TIEF; Large Pearl Basic Jewels
