By special request ........

Decembers crop calendar project.


Tips for making this project:
In each kit there is a smaller teal/larger red card for creating a front/back covers that are attached to the outside of the case.
Top and bottom images are the front and reverse for each month.
Be careful that the cards are in the correct orientation 9cm wide x 9.5 cm high before decorating.
Keep bulk to a minimum when decorating each card as the completed project is a snug fit even minimum bulk.

If you want

to create the LO Eileen has made using the sponsor kit (below is a reminder of the kit that's been kindly donated by Bella Blvd)

Papers and sticker from the Socialite range from Bella Blvd

You'll need two 6"x 4" landscape photos that are suitable for trimming to 3" x 2" or one 6"x 4"

Plus if you don't want the fiddle of creating a frame behind the oversized photo mat you may want to bring along some cardstock, any of the colour in the kit black, white, pink or teal would work.

NB The letter sticker and blossom are from Eileen's own stash.

Oh and did you realise it's onlysleeps until crop day?

all you need (except for the alphabet stamps which are Nicola's own) to create this LO, all for just £3.

Kraft cardstock has been use for  photographic purposes but is not include in the kit 

If you'd like to create this LO, you'll need either 4 3" x 2" portrait photos or photos suitable for cropping to size or 2 6"x 4" landscape photos. As always it's first come first served on the day and with a beauty like this you're gonna have to be quick.

Nicola that's a gorgeous kit you've got there, I for one am really looking forward to seeing what you make with it. Drop dead gorgeous if I know you.

ScrapaGoGo have got some fab new ideas for getting you inspired and scrapping, they're free and you don't have to be a member to take part. So we thought we'd share with you 'Blueprint To Go' the ethos of which is all about getting those pages and memories in albums.

Sketch designed exclusively for ScrapaGoGo by Kirsty Wiseman

Here are three examples of pages made using Blueprint To Go, the first is from our very own Janice, 

the second by Sam Ball, you might want to mosey on over to her blog for a little look see and the 

third LO is by Sheena who often joins in the fun our sketch challenges.  

One Blueprint but third completely different looks. Gonna love seeing what everyone else comes up with.
