“Friendly Flowers” May Calendar Page Using 2016 Calendar For Inspiration

“Friendly Flowers” May Calendar Page

Each month I create a journal page in my calendar for the previous year using the art in the calendar as inspiration for my page.  May’s calendar page is called “Friendly Flowers”. I used a piece of paper bag from my “Junk Your Stuff” project that had the words “friendly flowers” on it because I thought it was so cute.  I really enjoy working in my calendar each month and as the year goes by I mark in the new current calendar so that when the year is over I can start creating in it for the following year.  Here are photos of the May calendar page and a link to the video.  I hope you feel inspired to do something creative. 🙂

Pockets And Posies – Two Pockets From One 12 x 12 Paper

Pockets And Posies

I am trying to use up a pad of scrapbook paper, which by the way will take me 50 years lol, so one day I sat at my desk and played with a sheet of paper until I came up with a pocket that I liked.  I was able to make two pockets from one 12 x 12 sheet of paper.  I randomly machine stitched fabric scraps on some of the pockets and paper scraps on the other pockets.  Then I added some fabric flowers I made a long time ago.  They are really easy to make and super cute.  Check out the photos and there is also a video showing you how I made them.
