2014…

… is fast approaching & with the new year comes the thoughts of new calendars.  Today’s share is just that – a 2014 calendar!!!!!
 
I originally created a couple of calendars for the Handmade Expo 2 weeks ago just to see how the reaction would be & to see if people would actually be interested.  Much to my surprise, they flew off the table.

I don’t have a tutorial for you today, as they were a last minute thought.  Thinking that they would not sell, I had all intentions of doing a Tutorial once I got home.  However, in saying that, I will have one up & running in the next couple of weeks for you.

Everything Eleanor….

… was the stamp set we used way back in March for one of our Technique Classes – “Heat & Stick“.

As is the case with our Technique Class, we try & create a card that has a different fold.  Our card for this class was the “Box Card”.  I love how this turned out & surprise, surprise very easy to create.  I did originally see this card from Valita’s Blog.  From memory, I think I sort of adjusted the measurements to suit what I wanted to do.

Some of the products used to create our card have since been retired, but they can easily be replaced with current products.

Supplies –
Stamp Set – Everything Eleanor
Cardstock – Very Vanilla, Early Expresso, Lucky Limeade (Retired)
Ink – Calyspo Coral, Lucky Limeade (Retired), Versmark
DSP – Tea for Two (Retired)

Usually in my monthly Newsletter, I include a sketch & a layout for a scrapbook page.  I took the inspiration for the card from one of the newsletter.

CD Cases….

As promised, today’s post is another CD Case for the Expo.  Much to my delight & surprise the CD Cases sold within about 15m of each other.  I now have to stock up on more of these.  I don’t create a lot of them at once as I like to do them to suit the customers personality & colours she likes.

What a lovely & unexpected surprise when I went to check on the challenge Mary Jo has for this week.  My card (click on this link) was one of the Top 3 picks for the last chllenge.  Thanks so much Mary Jo.

I’ve managed to create another card using the great sketch Mary Jo has going.  In fact it come in very handy as I am in the middle of designing a couple of cards for our Tecnique Class this Sunday.  Thanks again Mary Jo, much appreciated!  Be sure to pop on over & join in this fun challenge.

I’ve used the fun Technique – Heat & Stick & the lovely Stamp Set – Everything Eleanor on the flowers for this card.  I did make a little change as to where I placed my Pearls.  I wasn’t entirely happy with where I had them – as per the sketch, so hope they won’t mind.

I’ve again left the front of the card blank with no sentiment or greeting.  I do this a lot with my cards as I find it a lot easier to send to people.  If you wanted to add a sentiment/greeting, then there is still room for one to be added.

The instructions for this card won’t be posted until AFTER we have finished our Technique Class, so be sure to check back if you need them.

Inside Card…

Yes, Sunny Challenges is back & ready for another year.  We hope you will be able to join in & play along.  This year, we are trialling the challenges as fortnightly instead of the weekly.  We would love to hear what you think of the idea. 

Our first challenge has been brought to us by Kris, who has been very easy on us as there is no sketch, products, etc to use.  Let your mind go wild, as it is a blank canvas.  All we have to do is create a card, 3-D project, scrapbook page, etc as long as it is celebrating “Birthdays“…..

Close Up…

I decided to use a stamp set that had been on my Wish List since I first saw it in the catalogue & was a “must have”.  As usual other “stuff” got in the way.  Anyhow, I’ve had this set for sometime, but this is the first time it has seen ink…..

I am hoping that this year I will be able to enter a few more challenges, so with that in mind, I’ve also created this card for the challenge over at Clean & Simple

 
Instructions & Tutorial for you to print –
 
 

Don’t forget to pop on over to Sunny Challengs to check out what Kris, Gwen & Libby have created.  Create your card, etc & link back with “Mr Linky”

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
