|How nice to look at one of my favourite photos of me and my boy|
for the entire month of January!
So here I go again. Carting my completed project around from venue to venue and room to room just so I can sneak glimpses of my greatness. Ha. Can you say "nerd"???
As I began typing this blog, you would have found me in bed with my laptop all cozy and warm on a chilling Monday evening and beside me is not my hubby (he's too busy watching football) but my 2014 Basic Grey Calendar!
|Getting cozy with my BG Calendar and memories|
The Creative, Thought Process
|The colour of Julia's dress matched perfectly with the pre-printed paper design|
Besides, this is one of my all time favourite pictures of Jules! I can almost smell the lavender and feel the warm sun on my skin as I take in this photo and the joy it brings. I think I dressed her in that gorgeous coral dress for the entire summer because she looked so pretty in it!
Make it YOUR Own!
When you open this calendar, you will find the backgrounds have been pre-printed with various colour schemes for each month. You then work with the instructions and easily labelled chipboard pieces, die-cuts and various embellishments to "build" your page. It is your choice to omit various elements (as I did with the "tweet" title for February...SO not me and Trev but could be perfect for someone else) and even move the elements around to accommodate your picture. You will see that my photo is much larger (5x7) and was landscape vs. portrait so I had to get a little creative with design.
|Yup. Here I am admiring my February page |
at the Laura Secord counter as I waited for the girl to pack my order!
Yes. For real.
Add a few 'extra' Goodies
|Persimmon garland added to tie in orange in tree|
|Simple page with 5x7 photo as the focus|
|I completely changed this page and I am happy with the results.|
Yes. I was admiring the page while I should have been working for hubby today!
|Still daydreaming at work....A BG rub-on was the perfect addition to this page.|
|Simple yet effective page|
