Hi everyone! How are you? Are you all ready for New Year's Eve? I think we are boring this year and staying home and warm and toasty by the fire with some movies! I don't think we're going out. Sometimes we go to our waterfront and watch the fireworks at midnight and enjoy the festivities and sometimes we go out to dinner. This year I think we'll be lucky to actually make it to midnight! I'd love to know what you're doing! I'm happy it's Friday (I was the ONLY person at my office this week!) and happy to be sitting here sharing a project.
Before I get started too far...there are still some Grab Boxes left! (see the post below this one). I'll be packing them up this weekend and shipping them on Tuesday. Get 'em while they're hot!
I like to make calendars for my gal pals each year - for them to put in their work cubicles or on the fridge. I use the clear plastic 4x6 frames with the magnets on the back. I look for them on sale at Michael's. I keep the design simple so that it will fit inside the frame and look good all year. I think I've been doing this 8-9 years now! This year I went quazy for quatrefoil and used it for my calendars and cards! I am IN LOVE with this design element. It seems to be everywhere (as you'll see later in my post). It's classy and feminine and retro all at the same time. What could be better than that?
I paired the crisp white quatrefoil overlay with some bright spring green Stardream paper. YUM! Isn't that super cool? Sorry, I'm getting carried away.
Here are the cards that went with the calendars! I found a matching stamp - it's from Savvy Stamps. LOVE that too! It's hard to see the banner of very light pink to accent the sentiment. I chose this kind of old fashioned floral paper because the whole look was starting to give me a 50's Palm Beach/Lily Pulitzer vibe....
Here's the supplies...That's my current iPhone cover! EEEEEEEK!
I'm pretty sure I have some sort of Cuttlebug injury after cutting all these out!
Have a wonderful, fun, fabulous weekend!
