How are you? Well, I hope. Today I continue with the Scrappin' Saturday birthday calendar!
This is the August page. I'll be posting a different month each Scrappin' Saturday for a while. We're on the second of twelve Saturdays for obvious reasons so if you missed last week you can just page back in the archives. I didn't start with January because I thought some of you might want to make cards out of the pages or use them in summer scrapping so most of my calendar pages will be out of order.
I used Chocolate Chip, Really Rust and Summer Sun for the cardstock. I have some retired DSP for the patterned Kraft paper and some Watercolor paper where I stamped the image. These can easily be adapted to Chocolate Chip, Cajun Craze, Daffodil Delight and Kraft paper (Crumb Cake) run through the Big Shot with a texture plate of some design.
The flower was made using the Daisy #2 die and the Flower Burst sizzlet die for the Big Shot. I used a sponge dauber to darken up the petals with Ch Chip. The little sunflower and pot image is from A Flower for All Seasons stamp set. I colored the image with Stampin' Write markers and bled them with aquapainters. I love that look on WC paper! I roughed up the edges of the WC paper as well. The leaves were cut with the Little Leaves sizzlet. I hope SU! gets more leaves of various types in for their dies. I love this one and use it all the time.
Next week I'll post another calendar page for you. Take care and happy stamping!
Much love and joy,
