Now I must warn you that my post is very long today as I have a lot of photos of the projects I created for this hop … I hope you enjoy!
For my first project today, I have created a calendar for 2011. It has been a while since I have created a calendar … I used to make lots of calendars and even run a very large calendar swap with a group of stamps in Australia/New Zealand. So it was fun to be able to make one today using my Riley stamps.
I have used 7 of the 10 new Riley’s/Sophie's that are being released today in this project, plus 5 other previously released Riley's. Of course what else would Riley be doing in January but celebrating the New Year! This Riley is called Martini Riley.
For my February page I used Window Riley, this one is from the July release. If you follow my blog you would probably remember that I recently purchased The Cinch Binding Tool which I just love, this is what I used to create my calendar.
Bouncy Ball Riley bounces onto my page for March … maybe I should have used this one for April … it might have suited April Fool but it is here to stay now hehe! This is another from the July release.
You might notice that I have used images for months that many of you wouldn’t use … remember I live in Australia so the seasons are all different to those in the Northern Hemisphere … April is the second month of autumn which is why I used Raking Leaves Riley on this page. This stamp was release in September as part of the Halloween/Fall release.
This cutie is Gift Box Riley … it reminds me of birthdays and Mother’s Day which is why I added it to my May page. This is one of the new stamps being released today!
June is the beginning of winter where I live so I used Ice Skating Sophie for this page …. this is another of the new stamps being released today.
This Snowball Riley makes me laugh … he is so adorable … I think maybe I might end up like that if I was anywhere near snow hehe!
For my August page I used another brand new stamp … this one is Sledding Riley.
Spring arrives in September in Australia so I used this cute Under The Tree Riley.
Even though Halloween isn’t big in Australia … I couldn’t resist using a Halloween image … the other Halloween images released in September didn’t fit on this page so I used this cute Popping Pumpkin Riley.
For November’s page I used Angel Riley … for no other reason that I wanted to hehe … what better reason is there … this is one of the new Riley’s being released today.
And finally for the last month of my calendar, December … I used Ornaments Riley. The calendar pages used in this calendar was a download I found in the Template Forum of SCS.
My last project I have for you today is a Christmas card in the shape of a Christmas Cracker. I used Ornaments Riley for this.
Here is the inside of my card, the sentiment used here is from Moose Sayings 1 sentiment set.
Well that is about it from me for today, now it is time to hop on over to the sensational Cathy Edgar and see what stunning creations she has install for you today.
