I have been stockpiling cardboard. It feels like the right time to confess. I have been drooling over the projects that Donna Salazar makes with it - and then when I laid my eyes on the cutest shabby ornament project by Kim Sears that did it. I broke down and started obsessively peeling cardboard. No box was safe. I peeled every box I could get my hands on - til my finger tips were sore. But not I have a pile of cardboard - perfectly sized to go thru my big shot. And I have been hoarding it - big surprise right? Actually I did make ornaments with a picture of my kiddos in it for Christmas, so I did use SOME. (just a little though!)
So Stamping night out is tonight - and I want to really knock their socks off with a cool project. I already have 2 cards so I wanted to do SOMETHING. Thus my shabby calendar! I have used the Mini Calendar download for TONS of projects. If you have the Giga Scallop square punch it is just a dream to punch them out and go straight to your project. For this one I printed them out double sided! SO my stack of months would not be as thick. Then attach them all with the Brites Boards clips - LOVE! Especially when you dress them up a bit with the Polo Mini Blossoms!
I wish you all could come tonight and make one! I hope you get a chance to join in the blog hop - but I hope I win the prize! LOL!!! (I think I am stir crazy from 3 snow days people!)
