Melanie's Blogaversary Celebration: Day 4


I really should have shared this other calendar project I made myself last night since Melanie shared the other one I donated to give away (Laurie in MN won, btw and as soon as Melanie sends me your address I will mail it) I really love having these planners - they only cost $1 and you can change out your cover to suit your tastes, seasons or stamps you are currently enamored with.  I used Melanie's set A Year of Flowers  to customize my planner to match my new Vera Bradley tote my sister & bil gave me for Christmas!  Above is the little brush bag that came with it.  I actually picked this out during my trip to CA in November so I knew I was getting it!  It is the Mod Floral Pink design.  

Here is a picture of the tote {so you can see how roomy it is}, brush bag & planner.  I loved the fact that I was able to use the flourish punch to recreate the swirls on the purse and the white leaves were perfectly matched!

Here is a card I made as a personalized note (it will be a Thank You card) that I used my JustRite Curlz & Times New Roman font & Harmony rectangle stamper.  See that pretty brad on the lower right corner?  It is fabric covered, embroidered with tiny pearls on it and it came from my friend Vanessa, I couldn't wait to use it on a card and thought this would be perfect for it!  

Be sure to check out Melanie's celebration of a year of blogging and stamp designing over at her blog Hands, Head and Heart. Prizes every day & today the Sponsor is Scor-Pal,  a Scor-Mat and three rolls Scor-Tape!!

Here is a list of designer's projects to check out today: Carolina , Barb, Jessica , Jessie,  Julie , Lee, Rose Ann
