Character Construction stamps, and she selected 12 artists to participate in this calendar. Each artist created a page for one of the months, using her stamps and/or paper. We've done this project in previous years, however this year we decided to take it one step further and send the images to a photo company to produce a 5"x5" spiral bound calendar.
Here are the pages!

I love each and every page. Thank you to everyone who participated and most of all, thank you to Catherine Moore for creating such wonderful stamps!
I also wanted to share some pictures from a little craft workshop I held with some friends over the holidays.
Our first project was painting circles on some journal paper. We then cut the circles out, glued them on some painted card stock, and finished them with some doodling and stamping. Inspired from Roben Marie Smith.
I then took it one step further. I used one of the folders my daughter Rachel made and turned it into our thank you notes for the Christmas gifts. I scanned her folder and added the "Thank You" text to one of the circles using Photoshop.
These were some of the supplies we used for the folders. Most of the napkins are from Crate and Barrel.
I also want to share some wonderful artwork that Shannon Benedetti created with Catherine's new line of stamps. Adorable tags, mini cards and an amazing shadow box!
The winter 2014 CHA show is next week and I'll be able to share some exciting news...stay tuned!
