Vintage Calendar

I have a special friend that I wanted to get something different for Christmas - I was making a Shabby/Vintage desktop calendar for myself and thought I'd like to make her a calendar also.

She isn't into really feminine, girly things so I decided that, seeing she's a movie goer, I'd make a vintage movie calendar for her.

I used DCWV 'La Creme' paper.  Beautiful paper in blacks, creams and whites, with flocking.  I made the covers with corrugated card and used two black rings to hold it all together.

I enjoyed making it and hope that she loves it as much as I do!

Here is a sample of the calendar -

So, till next time...

Another mini album to share ... and a new family addition

Here is the second Christmas Mini Album I have done.  This is to be sold as soon as get myself organised with my Etsy store!

I used a clear acetate sheet for the front cover and embossed it with my Cuttlebug with the Christmas baubles embossing pad.

I used some flocked Christmas trees on the next page.

A clear tag added some interest into the next page.

A couple of removable, top note tags.

The present opens up to three sides for photos.

A tag or photo can slide into the ribbon.

The gold envelope opens up also.

Some more places for photos.  There were more pages - I have just added a selection here.

And introducing Miss Lulu - our cute little kitten (well not technically mine but in our household!)

This is Lulu on my bed - I woke up to find her snuggled up next to me! So cute!

She also likes to drink water in the shower - as does Gypsy Rose our other cat, hence we have a bowl in there for them.

More pics soon.

So, till next time ...

A little creativity ...

Having completed (and passed) my course, I have been able to get in some 'finger food", aka mini album completion.

I started a christmas mini about 2 months ago - finished it at last and actually sold it at the Town Hall Market in Albury last weekend.

Will have more minis to share in the next few days.So, till next time ...
