December Calendar Blog Hop

 
~Welcome to the
December Calendar
Blog Hop~
December 28-December 30,2010
Welcome to A Scrap Above, I am so happy to be part of this Blog Hop Hosted by the amazing Karelj over at "One By One The Flamingos Are Stealing My Sanity"

On to my project, I have the month of April, I hope you enjoy it, I am in the middle of a move (that is taking forever).. So most of my stuff was already packed when I started making this Calendar.


Recipe:
12x12 paper bought from Michaels a few years ago, sorry, dont know the name/maker 
Cartridge used: Designer Calendar (rented from my good friend Tori @ http://hobbynobby.com )
Photo mats are just random cuts,
April Stamp is a set I won on a blog hop (YAY)
Calendar mat was 12x12 paper cut at 7 1/4 
Calendar circles 8 1/2x11 paper cut at 3 1/4
for the #'s I used the "rounded" feature cut at 1 1/4
Sun-Sat was cut at 1 1/4
B-day cake cut at 1 1/4, then colored with my red map pencil
Ribbon is from my stash
Month was cut at 1 3/4 
Year cut at 1 3/4
A little bling I won from another blog hop (YAY)

  71. I DO like your blog and am now a follower. If most of your stuff was packed, it may prove my theory of even in scrapping, less can be more! I find that sometimes when I only have a few things to pick from, I can do a much better job than when I have so many that I just go crazy. Your April calendar is great. Thank you for listing the name of the site where you rented the cartridge, I added it to my favorites.

    Good luck with your move. I hope you have good weather when the time comes!

I hope you've had tons of fun, gathered some new followers and have lots of great ideas for making your 2011 Calendar! Make sure you've left your comment on each blog to be eligible for the Designer's calendar Blog Candy! Thanks again! karelj
