Happy Friday! Altered Calendar Box with Graphic 45 in here!

How we doing today??? I hope you are as excited as I am  for today’s project from Designer Ava Gavloski. She created this gorgeous Calendar box using our BasicGrey Core Impression. WOWZA is it GORGEOUS!

It’s all about texture.  The Card Keeper box is perfect for many filing options.  Today, I am sharing with you my file which helps me remember birthdays, anniversaries and events that are celebrated yearly.  You could change this file system by making tabs for the types of cards you have on hand.  (ie: Birthdays, Sympathy, Anniversary, Baby etc).
Core’dinations cardstock adds volume and texture to this card keeper project.   Layering this project with Graphic 45 pattern papers was a delight as the Bird Song collection matched perfectly with the Core’dinations Whitewash and Distress collection.
You can find the start up instructions to this project at Erica Cerwin’s blog: http://pinkbuckaroodesigns.blogspot.ca/2012/06/stampin-celebration-june-blog-hop.html.  I adjusted the instructions a bit to fit my style of scrapping and my tip is to not glue the box together until you have the sides designed and glued down.  Enjoy!


Loving this back detail with the Couture Creations embossing folder…
