Hey all! Welcome to Day 3 of the 'Tis The Season To Hop blog hop! Have you been inspired to create some of our projects yet? We sure hope so! Again, I want to thank our lovely hostess, Elsa, for allowing me to hop along with such an amazing group of crafters. Thanks Lady!!! Now, if you are visiting my blog by chance, and would like to participate in the blog hop, it's not too late! Just start at the beginning, Day 1, here. Don't forget to leave comments on all the blogs to win some super candy that Elsa will be giving away! If you're on the right track, you should have come here from Kimi's sweet blog.
On to my final project. I originally had made a different calendar project for this hop, but I decided at the last moment (really - just about an hour ago) that the project wasn't very gift appropriate (unless you are a total TWILIGHT fan, like me). I'll be posting that project later (think BREAKING DAWN). Anyhoo, my GF Brenda gave me a post-it note/calendar last year, which is what inspired my project. Here's what I came up with ...
Super simple to make! Took me about 20 minutes to figure out the measurements and the scoring and then it all came together! The base is actually only one piece of cardstock, 4"x12"! Sort of like an easel card but just a little different. Thanks to my GF Cami for teaching me this quick short cut to make an easel!
The butterfly is something I had made a while ago and had it sitting on my desk just waiting to be used on a special project. Can you tell what the butterfly is made out of? Hydrangea flowers! I found a tutorial on YouTube and had to try it. Super easy!
Well, I hope you like my SIMPLE projects I created for this hop. I'm very happy with the way they all turned out and I truly hope you are inspired to give something homemade this Christmas. Now, here's what I have up for grabs:
These are CC Designs rubber stamps, from the Sugarplums line. In order to win these stamps, you must have commented all three days on my projects. Also, in your final comment today, tell me which of the three was your favorite and why. Instead of using Random Generator, I will be picking the winner. Thanks again everyone, for stopping by and participating in this special holiday hop! Please continue hopping on over to Margaret's blog for more fantastic ideas! Until next time, take care. Aloha, Linda
