More Craftin' Fun

I have had so much fun over the last couple of days making things. I made a birthday/anniversary calendar and a gift card holder for my son's teachers. I personalized the front of the calendar with their initial using the JustRite Special Occassion set and also used the Fiskars threading water punch and bound each calendar with my BIA. I included a sample of the inside pages. I created/printed them on the computer and then used SU chalks for the borders and misc. stamps/ink to decorate according to season/holiday. I sprayed each page with hairspray so the chalk wouldn't rub off too much over time.
For the gift card holder, I used the idea found on this wonderful stamping blog: I love her blog and check it daily. She has the cutest ideas! I cut the circles on my Wishblade, put them together and decorated. The back has a 1/2 circle that holds the gift card.

Weekly Planner

This was very simple. I bought the weekly planner in the Michael's $1 bin and used the title page as a template to punch holes with the CAD then cut a slit in each hole so it would punch onto the spiral binding. I used some scrap paper, a leftover sticker, stickles (love me some stickles), and a stamp to add some color and to serve as a daily reminder for me spiritually. I like how it turned out and it took about 5 minutes.

Tag Time

I went to an open house today at Amy's-The Croppin' Queen. She had a wonderful tag make'n'take and had some vendors. She went all out, everything was so organized! We made the tags you see below using the Creative Memories Tag Punch and a variety of other supplies. My fave is the one of my son. I had to laugh b/c it looks like he's wearing the bow! :) The CM tag punch is awesome! Thanks Amy for such a great time! Check out her blog, she's one of the craftiest people I know:
