Well, here we are again at the start of a new year and that means lots of new crafty adventures, how exciting! :)
I'd like to share with you a piece that I've just made. I hate missing people's birthdays but my memory isn't quite as good as it used to be and so I thought that I would make myself a Birthday calendar to hang in my craft room. I had printed off some DL monthly sheets quite a while ago but never got round to using them, so these were just perfect for what I needed.
I've only decorated one side at the moment but the plan is to do all four sides eventually so that I can change the cover from time to time. As this one is mainly Spring colours, I may do the four seasons, so we'll see how that goes. Here it is:
All of the stamps that I've used are new. I have previously used a smaller version of the Isobelle stamp, but I bought this larger version just before Christmas. The stamps used are all by Inkylicious, with the exception of the two girls on the film strip which are by Craft Individuals.
I started by tearing strips from the page of a book and then gluing them onto a sheet of stamping paper which I stuck onto cardboard to give it some strength. Once this was dry, I then used my Ink Dusters to create the background using: Memento Dandelion and Nautical Blue, Distress Twisted Citron and Impress Pale Aqua.
I'm happy with the outcome and I don't have an excuse now to miss any birthdays!
Wishing you all a lovely day and all the very best for 2017 x
