Can’t believe February is here already, but we are kicking it off with a great start, a super project by our guest blogger, the gorgeous Felicia from Scrapzville.
Felicia will be teaching a workshop at our CHA Release party on the 15/16 March so for those who aren’t familiar with her work you will get a sneak peak at her creative mind
Hi, its Felicia here from Scrapzville, doing a little guest blogging today.
Once upon a time, the lovely Kate said “What would you do with this?” and handed me the 7 Gypsies Vintage receipt holder…..
I love anything from 7 Gypsies, so I was delighted with this challenge!
She also gave me some mini file folders,
so off I went to make something lovely and creative ( You should have seen the mess in my craft room when I was finished!)
I decided to make a birthday calendar – there are only ten compartments on the holder and since there are twelve months I had to double up a couple of times, but i’m really pleased with how it turned out!
I used odds and ends from my scrap box, covered the back of the receipt holder first and then started work on the file folders.
(Prepare yourselves for photo overload..!)
I used one little folder for each month and then listed all of my friends and family’s birthdays in it. So, now I have no excuse for forgetting anyone!
As you can see March & April and August & September had to share a compartment –
I’m loving this new ”Flora” die from Sizzix Bigz collection -, it makes beautiful flowers. I cut two the same size, scrunched them up and added a centre. I put UTEE on the leaves and then cracked them to add some texture. This is the middle size which is about 3″ across.
and this is the smaller one, which measures 1 1/2″ across:
