This is a card that I created for my last card class. The card base is Creamy Caramel with layers of Chocolate Chip and Cameo Coral. I created my own background paper by stamping the French Script background stamp in Creamy Caramel and then I stamped the flowers from Vintage Vogue in Cameo Coral and rock-n-rolled in Basic Brown. The vine, also from Vintage Vogue was stamped in Basic Brown and the leaves were stamped in Old Olive. The butterfly is a Sizzix die cut from Chocolate Chip and then run through an embossing folder (I can't remember the name of it, though). The sentiment is from Well Scripted. I purchased Vintage Vogue and Well Scripted in the new clear mount version and I LOVE them!!! Not only will they save room, they are cheaper, which means I can buy MORE stamps! I was a little skeptical at first, but Stampin' Up! always puts out a quality product, so why was I worried??!

Well, that's it for me today. Until next time, Hugs and Happy Stampin'!

**EDITED TO CORRECT TEMPLATE LINK**

This is a tear off calendar that we made in my class last weekend. The base is a 4x4 chipboard coaster covered in SU Sending Love specialty designer series paper. The flower and leaf are from the SU stitched felt Sweet Pea pack. I used heart shaped eyelets and white organza for the hanger. You could add a magnet to the back instead. The calendar part is attached with silver brads. I got the calendar template from Splitcoast Stampers and here is the link.
I was having trouble opening it before, so I hope that it works for you. This was such an easy project. I think the hardest thing was cutting out the calendar pieces to be all the same size.

Well, that's it for me today. Until next time....

Hugs and Happy Stampin'!
