The Graphic 45 Place in Time Calandars

OK, so I fibbed, I guess I might be posting more than once a week…
I have a lot of projects that I did not get to post on the old blog, so I’ll try to get some of them on here.
I rarely do one of anything, it just seems easier to me to do multiples while I have all the bits and pieces out…
So last summer, I decided to make my mom and my MIL calendars (been wanting to do them forever, but never knew
quite where to start). Fell in love with the “A Place in Time” papers, and 5 calendars were born…
I ended up with 2 12 x12and 3 8×8. Each one is similar and yet unique. They all have bits and pieces from other paper lines,
and stamping and rhinestones and lots of Stickles! Lots of tags, ribbons, pockets and flowers! It was very fun for me because there was no real plan and I was very comfortable creating at will.

Just a sampling of the pages I created, sorry the tags do cover a lot of the art, I added in Cricut cuts and also used graphic 45 christmas and Halloween papers for October and December. Really, really fun projects and I think you should try one too!
Everything was mounted on thin chipboard and bound with my Cinch (just LOVE my Cinch!)

My New Years Resolution 2014

20140108-085454.jpg

Those of you that know me….know that I am the worst at communicating on a regular basis, so my New Year’s resolution is to
Blog and share what is going on in my crazy crafty life once a week…..

The first card of the year uses The Cricut Art Deco cartridge for the airplane and the Pure Innocence Plane Amazing flyer girl and sentiment. I’m not thrilled with the colors (I think I should have used a brighter background) but I love some of the details.
Her jumpsuit was stamped on adhesive fabric, colored with copics (which bled terribly!), her glasses have that touch of glossy accents
And the center of the plane’s prop has a little silver brad.
The card was created as a thank you for my wonderful BIL who got Marty & I first class plane tickets to Florida which was an incredible thing to do, especially because I hate (am terrified) to fly.
