Christmas Color Challenge

Today's color challenge on SCS was old olive (one of my all time favorite colors), Aqua and red. I purchased this Stampin set from My Favorite Things last Christmas and have made lots of cards with these cute little stockings.  This set is designed by Lisa Johnson, one of my favorite stampers ever!  We met about 6 years ago at a convention in LA, and she is as sweet as she is talented.  

This card was stamped with colored inks, no coloring.... Which makes it super quick and easy to make.  I stamped and cut out the stockings, then added an aqua colored scalloped trim to the top of the card.  The bow was tied around a fork, have you ever done this method?  It's so easy and makes the perfect little bow to add to a card.  I used a serving sized fork for this size. It's pretty bad that I keep a variety of forks on my craft table just so I can tie whichever sized bow I want.  

Thanks for looking!

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.

Thanks for looking!

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.
