Best Year Ever: Lolly's January Project - Functional Art for 2017

Hello Crafty Friends!

Are you ready to be amazed at another of our Creative Team's projects?
Today Lolly shows us her creations using parts of our January Kit.
So grab a cuppa, sit down and enjoy.......

Welcome to a new year, full of new dreams and hopefully a new outlook.  Let's CELEBRATE!

I wanted to make a project that I could see throughout the year, so I knew it needed to be up on a wall.  However, I also wanted it to be slightly flexible and changeable, so that I could update it in upcoming years. I'm so happy with how this turned out, and it will be perfect for me to display my word for each year.  This year my word is BELIEVE!  

But I have the flexibility of using a calendar instead of my word for each year:

And I'm loving the flexibility of the fireworks and confetti die!  I used all silver this time around:

The flowers from the kit work well together, along with items from my stash, to embellish the clip on the board:

I added some super fun fringe ribbon to the top and bottom:

It all came together for a fun and festive outlook on the BEST YEAR EVER!

I used Mod Podge to glue the Simple Stories paper to a clipboard, then embellished the clipboard with the Kaisercraft die cut fireworks (cut out on sparkly silver card stock), the Prima flowers, the Nuvo drops, and some items from my stash.

Come join in the fun and watch the entire process HERE

January Monthly kit is available in different flower/spray colour combos and is $65 which is a saving of 20% on buying the items separately.
Postage is $8.50 anywhere in Aus.
For internationals, please email for accurate prices.

So I embellished a clipboard for my design, using the Simple Stories paper pack in the creative team kit.

I also used the fireworks and confetti die from Kaisercraft -- how FUN!  You can't help but feel festive when using that die!

The flowers used on the clipboard clip are from Prima and Michaels brand and can be found here.

The Crystal Nuvo drops can be found here.

Thank you for joining me today!
