Merry Christmas

Kia Ora Koutou

I have had to make some last minute Christmas cards and thank goodness I had some poinsettias made and Heartfelt Creations has images ready to die cut and add to my cards.  I had some fun with mixing some products from Marianne Designs and Sue Wilson along with Heartfelt Creations papers.

Happy Crafting

CTMH Australasian Zoe Blog Hop

Hello and welcome aboard our CTMH Australasian Blog Hop featuring the beautiful Zoe Reflections range of papers and embellishments. If you have arrived here from Maz’s Blog, Inky Fingers then you are in the right place. If you landed here by accident, no problem, please join in by following the link at the end of this post.

Today I would like to share with you a project that I have made using the new Zoe paper range.  This is gorgeous paper that is so perfect for scrapbooking but I wanted to do something different with it so I have made a calendar book to put in all the birthdays throughout the year so you will never forget a birthday again.  I first made one of these many years ago when I started some classes and they are simple to do even if you have no Cricut machine.

To start I cut 14 sheets of cardstock at 8 1/4″ x 11 1/2″.  I have used Slate, Whisper, Glacier, Sorbet and Canary cardstock to match the papers on the papers.  For the front I have used the sorbet coloured papers from the Whimsy Fundamentals paper pack.  I then scored down the centre of the longer side at 5 3/4″ and folded it in half.  I then used my trimmer to cut down the centre for 3″.  I then used my CTMH Versamat and lined up to cut diagonally from the bottom of the cut to 3″ on the side.

2015-08-16 10.48.30-1

I then had some fun decorating with the Zoe papers.  Once I had done that I then used double sided tape at the bottom of the page to create a pocket to stop papers and cards falling through the bottom.

Here are the pages ready for binding.

2015-08-17 07.54.42

I went to my local copy place and got the booklet spiral bound as I don’t have my own binder.  The binding makes it much stronger than if I had just used some rings.

I then finished embellishing the pages.  For the left sides of the pages I have cut a piece of White Daisy cardstock and stamped the lines with the lines stamp from the Year >>Noted stamp set which is no longer available.  I didn’t have the time to stamp the months at the top so I trimmed the words from the zip strip and adhered them to the top.  I used my new Artistry cartridge to cut the flowers (3 1/2″) out of Sorbet cardstock for the page and also for the front page from page 12 .  I also cut the other flowers (1″) from the same page for creating some continuity throughout the book.

I also made some coordinating cards to go into each pocket and used this month’s SOTM set Framed for the sentiments and this time I cut the shapes out with the Artistry cartridge.  I have tried to do a mix of feminine and masculine cards.

Here are the finished pages:

And here is the front of the book:

There is now no excuse to forget a birthday!  This book would be great to keep special mementos as well as cards for birthdays throughout the year and would make a fantastic gift to give someone.
