Hello everyone and Happy Tuesday to all! Today Im sharing a Photo Calendar I made for Really Reasonable Ribbon & Creative Inspiration Paints.

I used Beautiful Pink Satin Ribbon, Pom Pom Mini Trim, and Brown Pearls all from Really Reasonable Ribbon. Next I used Lots of Creative Inspiration Paints to Color my Image, Distress my Edges of each layer, and to glitz up my Metal Frame.

I used Chocolate, Carmel, Beige, Blush , and Tutu Pink.

Pink Satin
White Pom Pom Mini Trim
Brown Pearls

I love using Creative Inspiration paints to distress and color my card stock. I also brushed some on the white metal frame. I love the way it looks, and its super easy to use! My borders are punched with Martha Stewart punches, and then distressed with CIP's. I colored my image with the paints too, the only part that isnt is her skin tone. I used a marker for that.

My Bows and Trim are Really Reasonable Ribbon, and the buttons are random buttons I found in my stash. I also used a angel charm , and some pearls to complete my calendar. Now to work on more pages for this Photo Calendar Album

Cut N Up with CottageCutz Harvest Release

 Hello everyone, and Happy Sunday to all! Today I wanted to share a Harvest/Autumn Calendar I made using more beautiful CottageCutz dies these are from The CottageCutz Harvest Release, to go with all the others I've made in the past. This is November 2013 and there is room for 2 photo's here.
I'm trying to finish up the months so I can put this calendar together. Its taken me longer than I thought, but I need to get moving on this ASAP...hehehehehe

 So I used the CottageCutz Basket full of Fall and some of the CottageCutz Vegetable Assortment too, I LOVE how they work well together in this basket. You can also use the Vegetable Assortment in the other basket as well.

I also used the CottageCutz Rustic Fence with Grass, and Love how it turned out. I thought it would work perfect for this page for the calendar. I used the little pumpkin in the lower corner. For the Banner I used the CottageCutz Pennants Plain and Pinking Pennants both can be found HERE!
 The stickers I used are from My Little Shoebox and the Ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon. I also added some buttons that I colored with chocolate Creative Inspiration paints. Lastly I added some sewing to all layers.
