We are doing a little Hootin' here today!

Who is going to admit it with me that you are ALREADY listening to Christmas music?  I know, it is probably WAY too early, but I have been listening to it for well over two weeks.  And not to mention that I pulled the White Christmas DVD out and popped it in the player while working on something for December.

Well, today we are going to do a little You're A Hoot.  Lea Albers and I have some projects for you.

First up, I have a layout and a card with the You're A Hoot collection.  On the layout I used the Warm Cord Brads and on the card I used the Cute as a Button Burlap buttons.   

Now for Lea Albers fun project with her instructions on making it.  It is an adorable calendar that is for the first half of the year and then the backside is for the second half of the year.  We are going to show just the first side for you....

She got the template for the calendar pages from a Google document that is available to anyone.  You can find that HERE.  She used chipboard for the background that measured 10.5 by 12 inches and just placed a background paper on top of it.  

The measurements of the individual months are listed out below.  She just printed them out on white cardstock from her printer. 

  • January is 8 x 6 inch

  • February is 8 x 7 inch

  • March is 8 x 8 inch
  • April is 8 x 9 inch
  • May is 8 x 10 inch
  • June is 8 x 11 inch 
And then just repeat for the remaining months!

How cute would this be out of ANY Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker collection and used as a gift for Christmas or a hostess gift?!  

Don't forget, we have an OPEN DESIGN TEAM CALL going on RIGHT NOW.  You can find out all the details, requirements and how to apply on this post HERE.

Have a Scrappy Kinda Day!!~~Katrina
