Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #236 Anything but a Card

Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #236 Anything but a Card. Angela is hosting today's challenge and anything you care to enter is fine as long as it meets the no card theme.

As you can see I chose to make a calendar-notepad holder. I wanted to make one back in January but could not find the calendar anywhere. I happened to be in a Dollar Tree the other day and right before me was one lone 2019 mini calendar, so of course, I bought it. I had to remove some months from the calendar but that's OK. (it now reads June lol!) Just a fun thing to make and I quite like it.

Card Details:
 I used Stampin' Up card stock, some designer paper, a mini calendar and a sticky note pad. The larger embellishment flowers were made from a jar of flower petals I found hidden in my stash. I punched some petals to which I added rhinestone centers and adhered them to the larger flower petals.  I added three more of the small punched petals for added interest and adhered them to die cut leaves I had glued to the background.

                        Do come, join the fun and share your creations with us!

Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #235 Masculine

     Marg is hosting today's challenge

As usual, anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece, some home decor, as long as it meets the masculine theme.

Do come, join the fun and share your masculine creations with us!  I chose to make a card featuring die-cut dragonflies, Stampin Up cardstock, some designer paper,  two tags, and some punched embellishments. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up.

Wow, it is June already! I had my plants out by the Victoria Day May long week-end, the grass is cut, the garden is starting to bloom and my dog and I quite happy about it all  (it was a long winter).  Now if only the forest wild fires would go away, the smoke can be ghastly.
