Altered calendars

These are a couple of weekly calendars I picked up at Big Lots and altered to use for Christmas presents.  The pink one just has a bunch of stuff from my stash.  I inked all edges with Vintage photo distress ink.  I chalk inked the chipboard before I stamped the sentiment in Vintage photo.

On the purple one, I stamped on the background paper with a stamp from the Fabulous Flowers stamp set.  The sentiment is from the same set.  The flowers are die cut with the poppies cuttlebugt die.  The leaves are from a SU die.  Button is from my stash.

I think they both turned out very nicely and will be appreciated by the recipients.  TFL.

altered journal

This a journal I picked up at Target for 50 cents.  I thought it would be perfect to alter and gift to someone.  I took it all apart to alter it and had trouble getting the pages to stick back in so if anyone has any suggestions for that, I would appreciate it.  Everything is just from my stash.  I have decided I need to stop buying and start using.  I wish I could get the hang of making those roses because so of you make beautiful ones.  I keep practicing and my friends think they are great.  The stamp set is SU Dreams du Jour.  I popped the whole center up on pop dots.
