Valentine's Day #6 - 2016 Calendar Friend, February (LSHD)

Hi Paper Crafters,

Today I am sharing the Calendar Friend for February as a card image for Valentine's Day. The paper piecing file is from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs, my first project was a February calendar page. I wanted to share how versatile the file is for using on other projects, such as a card. Of course it is still 2016, so I will hang on to the card until February 14th rolls around in 2017.





 Enjoy!

Creating a Calendar - February 2016 (LSHD)

Hi Paper Crafters,

In between Christmas wrapping, house cleaning and enjoying family, I put together my February layout for the photo memory calendar. Using the Little Scraps of Heaven Designs, Calendar Friends, is making this process fun and fast. I prefer to paper piece, but if you are a digital paper crafter, you would even get through these faster than I am. I hope I am inspiring you to consider creating a calendar for someone special, even if it becomes a new year gift. They truly are a meaningful.

Supplies used:
All Season Four - The Paper Studio

Close To My Heart products:
Gypsy, Cashmere, White Daisy Cardstock
Cashmere Exclusive Inks


Enjoy!

Creating a Calendar - January 2016 (LSHD)

Hi Paper Crafters,

I am back in project mode creating a paper pieced calendar using the Little Scraps of Heaven Designs, Calendar Friends. My first page is January using a snowman, snowflakes and snowballs for a great winter theme. Each year I try to find and buy the year themed paper pads. This year I found at Hobby Lobby the Paper Studio version, All Seasons Four.

Be sure to watch for future posts and videos as I work through the 12 months of the year.

Christmas Layout #5 - 2016 Santa Stop Here and Stuck on the Housetop (LSHD)

Hi Paper Crafters,

It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas as there has been a beautiful blanket of white snow on the ground here in Oregon since Wednesday late afternoon. I love the snow and how clean it makes everything seem.

Along with the snow, I have been watching Christmas movies on Netflix and creating another 2 page layout to share. This layout features the Little Scraps of Heaven Designs cut files #1076 Stuck on the Housetop and #1290 Santa Stop Here. I loved creating these pages. 

Once I cut and paper pieced all of the files I realized they would not all fit on my 12x12 layout. I put on my thinking cap and decided to pull out my Close To My Heart Flip Flaps. I love how they make a layout expand beyond the confines of the 12x12 cardstock. Photos are below, but the videos truly show the benefit of the Flip Flap. Be sure to watch my YouTube videos for the full effect :-)
