Guest Blog Post: Renata from Brazil

Hello!

It´s Renata Moni from Brazil and I'm delighted to be here and blogging with you today.

My theme for today is BIRTHDAY! And my project uses the new B-Day Bash Collection!!

I love to celebrate birthdays, but I must confess I'm terrible at remembering them.

So, I decided to share with you what I have made to help me not forget my friends' birthdays anymore! LOL

It's a birthday calendar!





I will show you how I created mine with this simple tutorial!

Materials to do this birthday calendar :
1 Chipboard sheet 9”x 9”
2 cardstock papers 12"x 12"
Patterned papers ( new B-day Bash Collection by Imaginisce)
rub-ons, alpha stickers, i-rock blings, foam tape, glue and embellishments you desire.

Instructions
Use the thickest chipboard you have for firm strong board.


Cover both sides of your chipboard with cardstock.
Tip 1- You can use a piece of fine-grade sandpaper or nail file to sand the edges of the paper flush with the edges of the chipboard.
Tip 2- Painting your chipboard is a great alternative to covering it too.

Now that the front face of the board is ready:

Adhere the patterned papers to the chipboard sheet and embellish however you wish.

Create a cute background to put under the calendar. I even added some i-rock blink to my balloons.

Print on white paper a perpetual calendar with the days of the month and trim them to size (mine is 7 ½ " high x 3 ½" width) and round corners.

Use a clothes pin to hold the papers of your calendar.

Decorate the months of you calendar! It´s going to be fun and beautiful.

You can use stickers, rub-on , blings, alpha stickers...

And your calendar is ready!!!

I Hope you like it!

Have a great weekend you all!

Carla Cavellucci Landi said...

It's hard to choose just one wotk from renata's gallery, since her work is stunning! But looking at the latest, I'd say this page http://keepingmymemories.blogspot.com/2010/07/apple-cider-by-imaginisce.html - Falling for You - is great, using pictures and paper in a very unusual way.
Renata, u rock ;)

Bom eu já sou fâ da Renata, seus trabalhos tem um colorido lindo é cheio de detalhes, mas também com os produtos da imaginense, não poderia sair diferente, os produtos são maravilhosos, a scrapper é talentosíssima, só poderia ser uma combinação perfeita neh. meu LO favorito dela é o WHAT'S UP, aonde ela usa cataventos que eu acho um charme nos trabalhos.
sucesso sempre, imaginense e Renata.bjs
