Sunshine Calendars

What a better time to make a calendar than the present... well, a bit later, but early enough in the year that I can use 99% of it... When I opened my Sunshine Scrappin Kit.. I fell in love with it. I had to make a calendar for my office desk so what better opportunity. I did make two kinds... on that flips open and one that opens like a Book... So, here you go...

View of the Front of the book: The ribbon on the bottom will act as the bottom support when you open the flip book. This will prevent it from opening and falling flat on it's back.

Here you can see what I mean by support... this pic shows the ribbon tied under the calendar...

so then, here is the front page, calendar....
turn it around and voila! Decorated back page with a message!!

This is the Book version... This one ties to the side and opens like a book when you undue the ribbon...
Front page view....

Inside the book... I love SU's new stripped ribbons in Saffron, Olive and Pretty in Pink!! and how about the cute flower brads??? I layered them on Baja Breeze trio flower punched for support and effect..

Thanks for Looking!!

It's almost time for Peeps and colored eggs and the Easter bunny!!! So, I had this in my mind ever since I cut our my first scalloped oval with the Big Shot.. OH MY OH MY!!! I love this machine and all it's fun dies... I used so four of them on this card!!
Hope you like it... I was in a chocolatey mood and the Parisian Breeze DSP was perfect... I'll be posting more later..

Baby gift.. .chocolate cover

I had to make a cover for a chocolate bar as a baby's thank you for gift of sorts, so this is what I came up with using the colors I was told were desired. I love the Bundle of Joy stamp set and was sorry to see it retire last year... of course, I kept mine and just keep using it time after time... hope you like it. Ok, so you're gonna say... where's the chocolate bar? Well, I have a lot of sweet tooth's at home... and good luck with that.... LOL.

Recipe: Chocolate Chip DSP, Pink Pirouette Textrd Card Stock, choc chip textrd cs, whisper white, aquapainter, pink pirouette and choc chip basic ink and barely banana marker, paper piercing tool with mat and pink pirouette stripped ribbon. Simple quick and cute. I think.

Thanks for looking...

I mounted the center piece with dimensionals so it would pop up.
