I've started work on my Melissa Frances mini calendar book from the Flying Unicorn store. The album will house my favorite papers, techniques and products along with inspirational words, notes for ideas, etc. and the calendar pages will be used for craft deadlines.
So here is side one of the October page.
The background paper is Colette from the Riddersholmdesign Chantilly Dawn collection available in the Flying Unicorn store. My inspiration word on this page is "curiosity" from the Tim Holtz Idea-ology Paper Stash-Craft Resist pack available in the Flying Unicorn store. The Tim Holtz tissue tape represents my musical family--I can still hear my mom playing Autumn Leaves on the piano. Tim Holtz Salvage Sticker. My techniques on this page are distressing, water distressing, and stamping. The leaf stamp is from Lindy's Stamp Gang.
Lindy's Stamp Gang is a challenge sponsor at Bella Creations this month as is the Flying Unicorn.
Here is side two for October:
The pumpkins are the Tim Holtz texture fade run through my Cuttlebug, using Core-dinations paper, then sanded. I created a pocket for my working calendar book so that I can jot down notes and ideas. The pocket also holds a very old Monopoly card as a symbol of my love of the game and love of collecting ephemera. The bit of crocheted doily is from a relative's auction--to symbolize my love of vintage style, heritage items, and attending auctions. In addition to techniques, My inspiration words are "chance" and "experiment"--both of which are important in learning our craft.
Today seemed like a good day to start my mini calendar book as I've made some important changes in my craft life. I chose to step down from the Bella Creations design team. I helped Lacee get her site up and running last January and have enjoyed being there this past ten and a half months. This change includes stepping away from my Oh La La group which I moderated at Bella Creations. We have 101 members and a big response to each month's challenge. I will miss being a part of that. However, the challenge is sponsored by Gecko Galz, and, starting in December, I will be part of the Gecko Galz design team. So I will continue to work with those great images which have become so much a part of my craft life. In the coming weeks, there will be more details about my transition.
