Three Things for your Monday!

>> Monday, November 22, 2010

I have been busily crafting away, getting ready for the holidays! How 'bout you?

I have three things to share with you today, using a mixture of Lily Bee lines. The first is a little pocket calendar. I love to pick these up at the Dollar Tree or the Dollar Spot at Target, and then recover them with cute patterned papers. Here I used the Christmas Town line and made a shabby little flower for the front out of layered, punched, scalloped circles & a chipboard button. These make excellent little gifts for those people you need just a little somethin' for.

Next up is a layout I have using a mixture of Domestic Bliss & Catching Fall. The oranges in these lines go great together.

I added a few little touches of kraft embellishments from Maya Road. I love those envelopes. They were geniuses when they made those! And finally, I have a small artistic piece that I made as a piece of home decor for a friend.

I started with a piece of 8 1/2 x 11" kraft cardstock, and covered it with text paper.


I tore a little here and there, and covered it with a Jenni Bowlin paint dauber (malted milk). Then I layered a piece of Catching Fall paper, with the edges roughly brushed with some Coffee Bean Glimmer Mist.


The final result, with layers of text (painted with Glimmer Mist) and whimsical flowers made of papers & chipboard buttons from Lily Bee.
I hope this starts your Monday off with some fun inspiration! Have a great week!
