Scrapping Recipe Challenge #38 and The Cutting Cafe'

This is my layout for Scrapping Recipe Challenge #38 at Sketches! {by Tamara}, and I also used the blank calendar printable stamp set from The Cutting Cafe'!!


The scrapping recipe challenged us to use at least the following three items on our card or layout:
  • a calendar or numbers
  • 3 ribbons
  • staples
I thought this was a really FUN challenge, and I got to use a new printable stamp set from The Cutting Cafe'!! I love the blank calendar set that Regina designed!! The blank calender with the days of the week, the number, month, year, and the two sentiments ("it's your day" and "happy birthday"), were ALL printed from the blank calendar set! Check it out, it's awesome! I used some fantastic My Mind's Eye papers that I got from Peachy Cheap! If you don't already check out the daily deals on Peachy Cheap, you definitely should! Awesome site! The three ribbons I used to make the ribbon loops are by American Crafts, and I attached them to the matted photo with staples. The matted photos are mounted on another great MME patterned paper sheet, and I punched a border down the side of it with my threading water punch. I added a silk Prima and rhinestones. You can click on the layout to see it larger. I added some rhinestones to the crown right above the calendar too. I'm thinking now that the upper right part of the layout is a little plain, so I just might decide to add an additional title.

I hope you have a great day, and as always, thanks for stopping by!!

What a great page! Love how you used the different challenge elements--they were hard to get on a card, but work so well for a scrapbook page.
