Birthday Calendar

Hello Crafters,

Today I have a craft project for you, to help you remember those birthdays during the year!

This is so much easier to have hanging on a wall to glance at quickly and see who is having a birthday this month, don’t you agree?

Birthdays Calendar

I have used the Birthday Basics Designer Series Paper (#130145) and the coordinating cardstock; Gumball Green, Raspberry Ripple, Crisp Canteloupe, Bermuda Bay, Summer Starfruit and Basic Gray. I used the 3/4″ circle punch for the Months and the 1″ circle punch for the names hanging from the gorgeous new Gold Baker’s Twine (#132975) in the Occasions Catalogue.

The “Birthdays” were die cut with the Typeset Alphabet Bigz dies (#127553) in Raspberry Ripple cardstock.

The white background was embossed with the Arrows TIEF (#132187), also in the new Occasions Catalogue, before being mounted onto a piece of heavy brown card that came as the backing sheet with the 12×12 Foil sheets. Waste not, want not, is my motto!!!!

PCCCS#78 ~ Card Sketch

Hello Crafters,

This week at Paper Craft Crew Challenges is a card sketch PCCCS078.

This is my first time entering a challenge at Paper Craft Crew Challenges and I am loving the fact that I can try new things, although I do tend to struggle with Card Sketches, but this may have something to do with the fact that I am always trying new things and crafting outside my comfort zone!!!


I love the Chevron punch and the Arrows Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (TIEF) coordinates so well with it. When I embossed the black card though, you couldn’t really see the texture, so I used a sponge and lightly added some White Craft Ink to make it pop!

As you may have noticed, there are a few more “new” items I have used from the latest Occasions Catalogue; the See Ya Later stamp set, Fresh Prints DSP and the Scallop Tag Topper Punch! This punch is sure to be an awesome item that everyone should invest in, to make your own tags and gifts (which you will see soon on my blog, so make sure you return!)

Here is a closer look!


How lovely is this stamp? It could be used for Valentines Day or for someone who may be a little down in the dumps and need a lift to cheer them up!!!
