I am so honored to have been asked to be part of the JUGs (Just Us Girls) Challenge blog hop this week!! You know what is even cooler? The JUGs girls are using MY TEMPLATES!! Eeeek!! I can’t wait for you to see what they have created. Gorgeous. Stunning. Brilliant!
AND, you can get in on it, too!! Just hop over to the JUGs Challenge Blog. This week they are challenging you to make a project using a template, with a bonus challenge of using the color blue. Many of my blog readers already own one (or more!) of my templates (and I love you for it!!), so this should be easy-peasy, right? If you win (wahoo!!), you will be awarded $15 to spend in my store!! YAY!! To make it even sweeter, all challenge participants will receive a store discount! Head on over to the JUGs blog for more details on how to play.
Wanna see what I made? Oh, I love it!! SO much!! I hope my momma likes it too, because I sent it to her for Christmas! Hee, hee!
I made all of my immediate family members some event calendars so we could remember birthdays! All of the siblings just got the calendar, but my mom and dad got the box, too! Hee, hee!
I made the calendar using the Mini Planners Template by Wendyzine Scraps and the Seasons of Love digital papers and elements by Elises Pieces. The box was created with my Squared Off Correspondence Box and Envelope Template Set (whew! Fancy name.) with some of Elise’s digital papers printed out onto matte photo paper. Since I used digital papers, I “clipped” the papers to the template, changed the colors of the lines to blend in nicely, printed it out, then flipped the page over and printed a coordinating paper on the back. (I have a tutorial on how to use my templates digitally RIGHT HERE on The Hybrid Chick blog!)
The Correspondence Box was originally designed to hold standard sized (4.25in x 5.5 in) cards, so it worked perfectly for this project, which is also 4.25in x 5.5 in!
What else am I using? A flower by Kaisercraft, a felt snowflake and rhinestone by Close To My Heart, punches by Martha Stewart Crafts, Say it in Crystals by Prima, a little bit of see-through Velcro to hold the box closed, and a random brad that I took off of a wedding invitation years ago. (I do that. Don’t you?)
