i got boxes and envelopes on sat. I worked the weekend I have nor opened them yet. Bad hostess I know I got a 6x6 of something a 12x12 and mystery swap and letters cause everyone wrote on out side I will try to get posted tonight. THem my friends decided to surprise me by cleaning/ rearranging my apt but did not finish. lol
I am getting ready to work on these soon. I have some great ideas for it. I have an awesome punch and embellishment I am going to use for the main decoration and then use my slice to cut out the January date, or use my Bigkick and alpha to cut it out. I will see what works best.
My schedule has been so busy the past month. I apologize for not being able to check in more often. I've got a couple more swap projects to finish before I get to this one. I'm going to have these finished by early September. In the meantime, I found some great papers to use for my July pages.
I am curious aboutt the stamp. I am waiting in another doctors office to to what he thinks is wrong. Lost ten lbs but not good way. Tired and eat through straw b but ours not that bad 8 am being whiny. You guys ones i can whine to.Lol
While I'm happy with it, it does not have any required techniques, unless you count the meager layering, which I wouldn't. I tried inking the edges of the calendar mat red, but honestly I think it detracted from the page. The page itself has such a narrow border that inking there doesn't look good either. I can't distress them because the paper is 2 sided and the colors on the other side don't work with this scheme.
The white frilly die cut at the top is just very slightly embossed to give it dimension and I used glitter paper but those really don't count either as that's just the way the cut comes out.
The December banner (it's meant to suggest Sanata's list) has printed dashed lines which I might be able to actually hand stitch if I made the dashes longer and can find a fine enough needle not to cause big holes. Or perhaps a few decent size red french knots in opposite corners of the page?
