April, May and June Calendars

What fun and excitement my husband Ed and I are 
having selecting everything down to each cabinet knob
for our "dream" home we are building!

However I find myself thinking, planning and updating every decision.
It can get a bit overwhelming!

Simply... I needed to create and craft!


My favorite On-Line Card Classes were presenting a one week class - perfect!
Using Patterned Paper is one of my favorite ways for inspiration and color palates.

Which was my focus on this blog in April and May 2012!

I thought what fun it would be to create the
Monthly Calendars using Patterned Papers.


Sunny Days from Prima Marketing was my selection.
Very pretty colors - shades of pink, green, turquoise and orange!

 Having all of my Patterned Papers packed in storage - bonus shopping! 
I took a break and went to the CKC Scrapbook Convention.
Great convention for selecting patterned papers for card crafters!


April is Rosanna's favorite!

  Tip: Take the time and really look at the patterns on the paper.
I cut 3 different "borders" for May.




 Enamel Dots - love this embellishment!


Have fun when selecting and crafting with Patterned Papers!

Dream!
