As I made ATC's for the Wicked Wednesday team this past year, I would make them specifically for each month and set them aside. I was planning to make a calendar project until I came to a standstill, as I just wasn't sure how to put it all together, at least until July when I emptied a case of Mason jars.
Finally, an idea!
Seriously....how could I throw this away?!
After cutting and folding the inserts,
holes (for binding purposes) were punched,
Distress Stain in Pewter was applied to all the edges.
and Washi tape was placed as tabs.
There's nothing like a Xyron machine to make each and every project easy,
I used mine to adhere black CS on every page for uniformity.
Tags were made and placed in pockets that were created when the pages were designed.
Seam binding was used to tie everything together.
The peace sign was made using the Feeling Groovy Cricut cartridge.
The monthly stamp(s) are from the CTMH Cherish the Day set.
All papers are from scraps, and the tag toppers are miscellaneous embellies from previous projects.
I am proud to say that almost all of this project has been repurposed.
Each ATC was double-matted and lifts opens to allow for additional notes.
The receiver of this monthly journal is Jenn, the team leader and owner of the Wicked Wednesday challenge blog...she has an old soul which is ever so kind, gentle, and peaceful!
November 2013, Walnut Creek, CA
If it isn't the NEW YEAR for you yet, it will be in a couple of hours.
I must say I am happy that 2013 is almost over!
My hopes and prayers that 2014 brings PEACE and continued good health to each of you and your families, including my own.
