This months challenge on the SRM Challenge Blog is Birthdays!  I used "We've Got Your Sticker - Happy Birthday" for both the images & the sentiments.  My spellbinders pinking edge circles are the perfect match for this sticker set.

SRM Challenge Blog

SRM Stickers has a new challenge blog giving you a great chance to win a prize package from the SRM Store!  I use alot of SRM stickers, granted I'm on their design team, but even before that I used them.  The are super easy to use and sometimes it's just nice not to bother with ink and coloring!

The April challenge is "Celebrations", how easy is that?  Check out the SRM Challenge Blog for all the details, but it's a fun and easy one to play along with!

Here is my project using the Express Yourself/Mothers Day & Say it with Sticker/Mothers Day sets.  I added a large royal rose from My Favorite Things, and die cuts from Cuttlebug for the leaves.  The tag is the large Mixed Media tag from Top Dog Dies.

Instagram print 2014 calendar

I love Instagram! And since I should that walgreens does Instagram prints in a 4x4 size I've been ordering them for all sorts of projects!  This calendar uses 12 of my favorite scene prints combined with coordinated paper from a k&company 12x12 paper pad.  Let me know what you think!

The calendar pages measure 8 x 8.  I made them out of a nice heavy cardstock and a decorated paper clamp which provides enough pressure so the calendar will stand up on its own by fanning out the bottom of the pages, or can be hung on a wall.

Each calendar page has a 4 x 6 SRM Kraft bag attached for holding photos, envelopes/bills, appointment cards, or anything else that you would want to save as a reminder.

Each page also has a SRM Standard Mini Calendarand a 4 page notepad for jotting down notes & reminders.  The notepad was simply cut from loose leaf paper than lightly glued together at the top and decorated with a scalloped strip of paper.

This whole project was made using coordinating designer paper from 12 x 12 paper pad.  I like how all the colors work together and the variety of photo prints make it interesting.  To coordinate with the SRM Kraft bags she used Kraft paper for the base of the mini calendars, SRM's Large Month stickers and a matte for the photo.  

More details including the measurements for all the layers and pictures of every page are on the SRM blog at http://srm-stickers.blogspot.com/2013/10/2014-instagram-calendar-by-michelle.html.

World Cardmarking Day with OWH & SRM

For world card making car I participated in the Operation Write Home blog hop by creating these cards using SRM Stickers and sketches from the OWH site.  The sketches on the OWH site were so easy to follow!  They have all the measurements clearly on the sketch, so I simply picked my colors, cut, and quickly assembled which left me time to finish 3 cards in about 45 minutes.  

The first 2 were made with Sticker Sentiments - Thank You #51005







This last card used Fancy Sticker Sentiments - Thanks #55004

Bee-Cause You're Special


Created for SCS Ways to Use It Challenge #443.  This was to inspired by honey, so I used a bee and flowers.... 2 major components in honey!!


For this card I used my Distress Markers again to watercolor the background.   First I scribbled on Ranger Watercolor Cardstock leaving an orange spot at the top where I knew there would be a "label" area for the sentiment after I embossed it with a Spellbinders embossing folder Floral Labels #4. 


The flowers are white Prima flowers sprayed brown/metallic gold with Glimmermist.  I stamped the flower centers and added decorative brads.  The bee is and sentiment are from DRS designs.


I trimmed the watercolor paper down to 4x5.25 so the kraft base card peeked through and added little black dots along the edges.  

Thanks for looking!
