OK, so I have seen several different versions of this type of project. Please keep in mind...these picturees are not very good quality, as they were taken with no natural light. You get the idea. I will be putting up the link to the template I borrowed in a later post - it was made by Danielle Lounds.
I decorated the cover with the DSP and ribbons you can earn during Sell-A-Bration with Stampin' Up! For Canadians, you only have to place a $60 order to receive one of the offers in the SAB brochure for free! Or you can earn them by hosting a workshop until the end of March (then we welcome the Occasions mini!). OK, back on track...
For April, I used another piece of DSP from the SAB catty at the top. At the bottom, I used the adorable designer Filigree brad.
For May, I used the set Crazy for Cupcakes (LOVE that set, and you will see it again). Coloured the images with markers and Waterclor Wonder Crayons/Aqua Painter.
I coloured the tree in with markers (I think?), and then I created the clouds. I cut a scallop circle out of a piece of scrap, and then I used it as a stencil. I would place it in various spots around the tree, then sponge blue ink around it to create clouds.
For December, I went with the set Holiday Lineup (my favourite Christmas/Holiday set EVER). I coloured these guys in with markers.
