February Calendar pages


When the February kits arrived, Shemaine and Melanie continued adding to the 6x6 calendars included in the January kit.

Melanie used patterned paper plus the packaging for the Basic Grey Letters as a background. The Pink Paislee bits add a fun touch to the page, along with a CUTE blue chiffon flower from Basic Grey.

Shemaine cut the Elle's Studio patterned paper so the LOVE word is the focus of her calendar this month. She added some fun pennants, Pink Paislee bits, washi tape, and Elle's Studio tag to finish off the page.

What are doing with your calendar? We'd love to see :)  Link us up to you blog here in the comments or add your projects to the Paper Posies gallery HERE.

January 2013 Kit Calendar


Hello :)
Have you worked with your January 2013 Paper Posies kit yet?
It's fabulous!


One of my favorite all-time projects to make is a calendar. So, I was thrilled to see a calendar as January's altered project! From the January kit, I used the cardstock, patterned paper, transparent overlays, bling, and thickers to decorate the cover:


For the January page, icy blue patterned paper will be a great background for my favorite January photo. I added on the overlays (love these!) and some pearls. By placing a thin strip of the striped patterned paper between the January and days of the week on the calenar page, it pulls both sides together.

Shemaine decorated her January page, too. I love how she cut the postcard from the patterned paper and put the bling in the center of the snowflakes.


It's not too late to decorate your calendar! We are only a few days into January and you still have the whole year ahead of you. I'll be using the Paper Posies kits each month to add to the calendar. Join me! I'd love to see your projects using the calendar or the kits. Post them in the Paper Posies gallery or link them up here in the comment section.

PP August Challenge - play with shapes!

Hi Paper Posies Friends! I hope by now you all have received your August (2012) kit and are having fun creating with it!
To give you a little further motivation, I'm here to give you all a challenge... Use shapes on prominently on a layout - at least three different shapes. Squares, rectangles, circles, stars, triangles, hexagons, etc. Use at least three with a Paper Posies kit and you're good to go. :) When you've completed the challenge (and you have one whole month!), post it in the gallery and then share it with us on the message board! Here's some inspiration for you: For my layout, I used rectangles, stars and circles:
Melanie (circles, rectangles, triangles):
Shemaine (circles, rectangles, squares):
Michele (circles, rectangles, triangles):
Okay! Now it's your turn. Go play with shapes!

Be sure to join in over on the message board with our July Challenge this month. The July kit is amazing and full of fun products.


Since the paper lines are October Afternoon 9-to-5, and Crate Paper Storyteller, the challenge is to create a layout with:
9 embellishments
2 photos
5 pattern papers
AND
tell the story of the photos.

Here is my take on the challenge:
And DT member Mary Ann joined in with this layout:
We'd love for you to play along. Just add your layout or link to your layout on the message board HERE. You have until August 10th to post your layout and be entered into the drawing for a prize.

Upcycle Project

Hi friends!

I'm sure you all have your April Kits by now. :)

So......... I thought I would show you a fun upcycle project
 I made using the April Kit.

It started out looking like this:
You can get your hands on this jar of cookies at most
Target stores for about $7.00 each.
{they are yummy!}
After you've shared & eaten all the cookies,
hand wash the inside with soap and water, rinse and air dry.
Then you'll be ready to create this...
A fun jar to store all your ribbon scraps.
Mine is filled mostly with previous Paper Posies Kit ribbons. :)

Just cover the front with a large strip of pattern paper.
Cut out one of the large journal blocks to use for the title.
Add some alphas, ribbon and embellies and you're done.
Now just fill 'er up!!

Here are some other ideas to fill your jar:
chipboard shapes
fabric/felt remnants
punches
small toys or gifts

Grab your kit and put your crafty-ness to work
into something upcycled, wonderful and fun!
Share your creations with us over on our Facebook page.

HAVE FUN!!
