I am doing a 2014 Calendar using a scrapbook LO format. This is not a new idea - from me or from anywhere. I have made one for the past five years because Mr D made me a lovely oak frame with metal instead of glass so I can use magnets to stick stuff on it. Usually, I make a page up on the first or second of each new month. Of course. It's the fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants, spontaneous kinda life I live. And not because I'm disorganised, right?
Anyway.. for the first time since the first calendar, I'm offering this as a workshop in November because a handful of people wanted to make one too. And that's why there was a section of this page on my desk for WOYWW 222. And colour me hugely surprised..lots of you wanted to know about the paper......
It's a pre-embossed 12 x 12" from Bazzil. I don't know how old but certainly not a 'this year' product. It is a lovely bright orange, I've sponged Distress Inks over it to grunge it up/down a little, the emboss of course, is a perfect resist for such inks. The pumpkin is not a die, it is 3 circle punches and a couple of pieces of a scroll-vine type die. Necessity you know, is the mother of invention. I am not the inventor...but I don't expect for one minute that you thought I was.
Now, although I think generally that sneak peeks are just frustrating and ridiculous and tormenting and oh so irritatingly a marketing tool, I will only be using sneak peeks - until after the workshop. I always think it's nice to have a content surprise when you know what the box is all about. And of course, as yet...I haven't actually finished any more.
