inspiration everywhere and other stuff

here's a roundup of my crafty creativeness from the past few weeks


this printable calendar template is from shutter sisters
i was so impressed with the amount of free downloadable holiday tags, chocolate wrappers etc that were available online!  i think i found them ORIGINALLY from my scrapscene daily email



i made a 2011 calendar for tara featuring pictures of her and i and our girls from over the years


here's a few layouts that i've completed recently





and here's some of the 'assignments' i completed from jessica spraque's free 'inspiration everywhere' class
back in december

this is from the 'create' banner i made
these rosettes are made from a printable PDF
you then cut them into 11 x 1 inch strips then SCORE at 1/4 in (10 of them!)

you join 2 together then somehow wrangle them into a rosette
i'd recently just bought a MACRO lens, so maybe went a little crazy with it here...





my folds on this E were very exact!!!!
YAY!




i'm not sure if i'm meant to include a link because even though the class was free, you had to register?

it DID take some time, but was so worth it



one of the other assignments was to make a cd of your favourite tunes



this was SO much fun, and i played it LOUD SEVERAL times while i did the housework!

then miss 12 and 14 and i made these albums last week at our LSS








another assignment from the jessica spraque class was to make a page using our own handprint
i found the mere act of painting my hand and placing it on a page incredibly moving

don't ask me why
maybe because as adults, we just don't do that kinda thing!


here i'm pretending to chase my daughter with a very wet and very blue hand




i hope you enjoyed my crafty show and tell!

Wow, you've been quite the busy bee! I love all of your crafting. I hope that I will be able to get some of my own done soon.

Hey Sue - how did you make those albums in this post? Were they from envelopes??
