Moving on to Day 2 of My Favorite Things‘ November previews!
Today we’re previewing two new sets by Laina Lamb — Journal It Calendar Basics and Document It Days & Dates.
One of these days I’ll get up the nerve to scrap something, but until then I’ll be thinking of creative ways to incorporate Laina’s sets into cards.
Using black Staz-on ink, I stamped the grid portion of the calendar stamp onto acetate. Square Die-namics created the layering for the window. The acetate is adhered between the Wild Cherry panel and the Kraft card base and I used thin strips of double-sided tape to adhere the wreath and bow.
To create the layered bow, I die-cut two from Wild Cherry cardstock. The first bow I adhered to the wreath. I removed the loop portion of the second bow and adhered (in the center only) over the loops of the first bow. I then used the remaining tail pieces to attach beneath the first tails.
The sentiment was created using letters from both Calendar Components and Story Starters. (The M is actually a W but I think it works.)
Fishtail Flag ends were layered and tucked beneath the popped up sentiment.
On the inside, I stamped a sentiment from Clearly Sentimental about Christmas using new Wild Cherry ink.
