Welcome to the Create with TlC Calendar Girl Blog Hop and introduction of the new design team members! Paulette is hosting today's Blog Hop to launch the newest team and introduce the "calendar" girls! That is what we are calling ourselves today because each designer has a creation using a calendar of the month. And as a special treat from Paulette, every designer will be including the image they used as a freebie! Your next stop on the hop is the sensational Carla's blog! If you get lost along the way, please return to the TLC blog to get started and to see the complete list of designers.
My first calendar image for the hop is "September". I never think of this month without remembering this was always the month for starting school:
I chose Cosmo Cricket's "Odds & Ends" collection for my card and cut out embellishments with my Cricut "George" and "A Child's Year" cartridge. I also used a Sizzix embossing folder sponged with Stampin' Up ink. My wooden letters came from Michael's.
My second month is October and I of course, Halloween! I used to love to "trick or treat" and still remember the thrill of choosing a costume.
I used Basic Grey's "Curio" for my design paper. My Halloween embellishments were cut with my Cricut using the "Happy Hauntings" and "October 31" cartridges. A little burlap from "The Funkie Junkie" and a purple button completed the scene.
Please be sure to grab the "freebies"! We'd love to see what you create with this!
