All seasons calendar

My new  Robin's Nest project

 So here  is  my glitter 2012 Calendar here for you.

Product list:
20*20 bookboard piece- also you can use a thick chipboard too.
Robin's Nest Dew Drops: Spring Bloom, Flame, Sunflower Seeds, Wild Flower
Tando Creative chipboard frame
Maya Road chipboard bare trees
Maya Road chipboard Seasons words
AC chipboard Thickers (fall  letters  and 2012)
Ranger Crackled Glossy Accent
Ranger Tea Die Distress Ink
Clear embossing UTEE
Elle's Studio  Calendar tags
J. Bowlin pin
Heat gun
 Now for the  quick tutorial for this project
1. Cut four 4*4'' pieces from all  4 cardstocks and glue them from the left upper corner- Winter to right upper for Spring to right lower for Summer and Fall as the last one.
2. Cover your frame with a bit of distress ink , add UTEE and heat with your heat gun. Cut a piece of white glitter cardstock and adhere under the frame. Glue your frame in the middle.

3. Cover all seasons words with the same ink and add 3d crackled glaze, let it dry. Do the same with 2012 and Fall letters as those are separates. Let them dry and then adhere as shown. Add a calendar tags in the middle with a pin.
4. Cover 4 bare trees with Glitter, let them dry. Adhere them as shown, still bare. Now take  your Dew drops and begin to play with them as your leaves. No leaves for Winter. Some light ones for Spring. Lot of reds for Summer and some brownish for Fall, add some of those under the tree too as they are falling leaves.

Use Spring Bloom Dew Drops for Spring

Use Sunflowers Seeds and Flame Dew Drops for Summer

Use Wild Flowers Dew Drops for Fall

5. Add a huge magnet or some hanger and your 2012 calendar is done.
See how easy it is to make with those gorgeous Robin's Nest products!

Shall I say Happy New 2012 Year already?
So let it be Happy!
And now for another new page I did for the Winter 2012 CHA Robin's Nest booth:

This project was published in March issue of Scrapbooking. com magazine

I think this page is  my best possible way to showcase those fantastic Robin's Nest products:
It was made with 5 different RN cardstocks and papers, Glitter Leaves die- cuts, Rub- ons, Stickers, Ribbons and Dew Drops. The only non RN are letters as Robin's letters are fantastic, but too small for the title I thought about.
 And as for techniques: 2 different kinds of faux stithing- piercing and paint and scoring and inking;
hand cut papers, stamping , ribbon pleating, border punching and a nice journaling too.
The whole idea of this page was to show this global world we live in- this is an Austrian vacation, Italian coffee,my " Made in China" coat, my old made in Japan camera and an Israeli me.. This is what this title is all about- One global village we all live in.
And now I am just crossing my fingers for a Happy Mail from Terri as I really want to stay on this fantastic team!
