6x6 Desk Scrapbook Album Calendar Gift using "My Creations Album" from CTMH

This is a desk calendar that I made for my sister in PA.

She can replace the dated calendar pages at the end of 2009 with 2010 pages or she can just remove the calendar pages and put more pictures in to make a cute desk scrapbook.

All supplies used are from Close To My Heart. I also sell this as a kit with all papers pre-cut and most embellishments placed. Of course, the pictures would not be included... ;-)

A "Challenge" Card using Close To My Heart Die Cuts and..........

.......ribbon, eyelets, colored stamp pads; we were also allowed to use white card stock & black ink.
Here it is:

All products used are CTMH products.
This was a super fun challenge.

Here's the recipe I used:
~ Cinnamon -- which was the ribbon - Smoky Plum from my ribbon rounds.
~ Salt -- which was the eyelets - Garden Green eyelets
~ Nutmeg -- which was the ink pads - Smoky Plum & New England Ivy
~ Powder Sugar -- which was the Die Cuts - CTMH constant campaign die cut flowers

I used my CTMH corner rounder for the corners of the card, the "hello" sentiment, & the card stock piece that I attached the die cuts to.
I am also using this card for another challenge, my SBS21 challenge, since I have NEVER used eyelets before.

All of you experienced cardmakers/scrappers would have split in two laughing at me attaching the eyelets!!!!!!!!! All I can say is that I had myself laughing at myself!!! LOL
.....Hey, but I did it!
And I learned something new!
And that's all that

Thanks for stopping into my den and hopefully leaving a comment with your thoughts and any ideas that would help me do a better job next.
Hugs ...... Barb
