Chipboard Coaster calendar/post it notes

My friend/SU upline, Heidi, gave me a bunch of chipboard coasters to play with. She told me how to make this over the phone. I am happy with the end results. Everything used is SU unless I write otherwise. The paper is from the prints pack. For the front I used the scallop punch and the word window punch. The flower and saying are rub-ons from the Love & Happiness set in Old Olive. For the inside I used part of a post-it-note pad. The scallop punch and spiral punch. I downloaded the calendar from a website. The brads, eyelets, and ribbon aren't SU. It takes a while to buy all that you need when you sign up. I am working on it though.

Birthday Wishes

I love how this one turned out. I got my idea from the business cards I made. All things used are SU. Paper is handsome hunter and whisper white. I used elegant eggplant and handsome hunter stamp pads. The larger swirl from Priceless and the small and big flower from Office Accoutrement stamp sets. The large oval punch and birthday wishes from the Sincere Salutations stamp set. I used this card for my very first card swap.

Cuttlebug meets Glitter

Ok, I tried the cuttlebug with the glue pad from Tsukineko. I used the flower from SU's Big Flowers set and the saying from Sincere Salutations. Once again I used generic paper. I have to say it is not something I would do very often. I am not one for messes. This, due to the glitter, fits into that category.

Beeing Thoughtful!

Here is a card I made with just generic paper. The beehive stamp is from Imaginations. The bees stamp is Inkadinkado. I mainly used colored pencils on this one. The bees are attached with 3-d dots. The shiny part was done with a rainbow gelly roll pen. I love how this one turned out. I also seem to really like the dark colors. Hope you like it too.
