3D Friday Calendar Notebook

Hey everyone!

Welcome to my Cyber Craft Room. It's 3D Friday and I've brought out a project that I made some time ago because the colors are coming back! It's cloudy right now so I took the photo sitting on the edge of the window to capture light. I know I need to get some 12x12 paper and make a light box but I just haven't done it yet.

This project was a lot of fun and faster than you think! I started with the 5x5 Art Journal (#108495) and covered the front with Riding Hood Red DSP. I used the Spiral punch (#108341) to create the holes for laying the DSP over the notebook spirals.  I contrasted the RH Red DSP with Riding Hood Red, Baja Breeze and So Saffron DSP from the same paper pack. I added the baja, saffron and chocolate buttons from various offers in the SU catty with mini glue dots.  I stamped the tree from Trendy Trees (#113258) onto WW card stock with So Saffron then moved the image down a little and restamped in Riding Hood Red. It doesn't show up here but it really gave it some added dimension. I matted the image on So Saffron card stock and raised with with Stampin' Dimensionals to give it even more pop.

The ribbon is Riding Hood Red Taffeta. For a final touch I tied, baja, RH Red and ch chip taffeta at the top on the spirals. On the inside I used the set Full Calendar (#114966) and stamped a month on each page in Baja Breeze.

That's all there was to it!
God bless and have a great day!
