My creative brain cell's gone away!

I got stuck this afternoon with a few projects half finished and no idea what to do next so ended up finishing this cute little bind-it-all calendar from a tutorial I spotted on the Inspirational Tips, Techniques and Tutorials blog. I used one of the Crafty Individuals pads and then created a calendar template which I printed onto acetate and layered in between the CI sheets. It was basically just cutting and glueing which was about all my brain was capable of LOL!! The CI papers are gorgeous. By the way, there were lots of left over strips which I've recycled by glueing onto a piece of A4 card with spray mount. Hey presto - 2 sheets of collage paper.

Whew - even an amoeba has one brain cell, so there's hope left for me - I love your calendar - and I also love CI stuff, use their acetate images all the time.

Creativity and mojo are just not in my vocabulary anymore!

This is lovely. The colours are very delicate yet strangely vibrant at the same time. Great backing for a calendar.

You'll have to forgive me I have been a very bad blogger over the last 3 months since i started the new job. I rarely get time to go round all my favs this year & its sad because I miss gorgeous projects like these.
