Events Calendar for 2009

This is a gift for a friend, but I just had to take some pics!!! Not sure if I should cover the other side so she can add pics!?
All of these will of course be on top of one another and held together with two "rings." So if I decorated the back of January it would be in the February colors, and so on.

I would hate to be late posting this one too! Here is the make'n take project for the gathering I will be doing January 23rd. A pretty little valentines day card. I wanted to show how to cover the Close to My Heart chipboard shapes with paper, and give them a nice finished look using the "finishing files". It turned out well for a first attempt I think! I was not sure if I would be able to cover the chipboard well with cardstock, but it didn't seem to be any more challenging than the patterned paper. I Can't wait to show the gals this technique!!!!

Okay, so I know this is a little (ok a lot) late. But I think it's worth sharing!
The card to the left is the make-n-take project I shared at my last gathering. It had so many fun techniques that we didn't do a whole lot else that night.
I was able so show off the close to my heart Edge Distressor, the Write'n rub pen, the prisma glitter, and the sanding kit. I was also able to show everyone how to use their embossing stylus and sanding kit to distress paper, and how to distress with ink! Not to mention we were able to use some fancy ribbon!
What "made" the evening though, was the fact that all the girls that were there that night were related somehow!!! Together with the people I love most, doing what I enjoy most. Doesn't get any better than that!!!
