Hello Everyone!!! Over the holiday, I had lots of time to stamp but many of the projects will be ones I share next month! Todays project is one I created last week for the Splitcoast Stampers Sketch Challenge.

This week, the Technique Junkies Newsletter is sponsoring the Pile It On Challenge Blog and the theme is BRAND SPANKIN' NEW! Check it out and play along for a chance to win the new Fancy Folds and Motion Cd and a one year on-line subscription to the Technique Junkie Newsletter.

This STAR is a chipboard die cut from Creative Cuts and More! It is available as all of their die cuts are in a variety of colors, papers, sticky tape, vellum, velvet and even as this one is CHIPBOARD! 

One thing you may not know is Creative Cuts and More sells card stock in individual sheets for your paper crafting and they have a NEW CALENDAR KIT!!! This kit contains a 12"x12" spiral bound blank 14 month calendar. This calender can begin with whatever month you want. 

This 12" x 12" calendar kit is jam packed with supplies. Besides the calendar itself, we also include over 130 die cuts plus 14 sheets of 12" x 12" cardstock, plus 14 pieces of cardstock for mats plus 5 strips of cardstock. Besides the calendar and die cuts you will also receive black, gold, light blue and yellow diva drops. Everything you need to make a great calendar including 14 layouts is included. The only things you will need to add are photos and adhesive. Of course, you can always add embellishments from your stash to make the calender even more personal.

The kit is worth over $45 but we are offering it for $34.99.

You can even SAVE 10% off the cost of your order by using my discount code CC&M10CHRIS. 

For this project, I used the Creative Inspirations Paint. You do not have to be a master at painting to LOVE these paints! They are SO creamy and filled with shimmer and SO much fun to play with. I used it today to paint my "grandma" and the chipboard to add a little PIZAZZ! This week, the Creative Inspirations Paint Design Team has a challenge to use CIRCLES. My paper has circles in it! Come play along. We would love to have you join us!

On this project I used: Tutu Pink, Fuschia, Blush, Antique Silver, Silver

Isn't this grandma so much fun? Over the holidays, my children were blessed to spend some time with  their grandmas! I saw this S.W.A.K. image over at I Brake for Stamps and knew I had to have it!
