Two notepad holders - for Altair Art

It's my turn on Altair Art blog, and I've made two notepad holders with beautiful papers from the 'Nightfall' collection.
The folders were built from scratches - chipboards covered with efalin paper (which is a perfect paper to wrap chipboard for binding, much more than cardstock!).
I then covered the front and back covers with beautiful papers from the Nightfall collection.
In the inside, there's a place for the notepad.  A belly band holds the notepad, so it can be replaced, once it's finished.
On the other inner side, there's a pocket for notes, and on top I've placed a paper clip, also covered with pp.
Here's a look to the inside part:

And some close-ups on the details:

Parisian Chic - CSI case file no. 265

I'm a little late with my lo for the new case file at CSI - case file no. 265, which has this beautiful inspiration photo:
This time I went free style, and not 'old school' as usual.
I was inspired by the colors in the inspiration photo and fashionable look on the whole, so I decided to use a photo (one of many) of a street lamp on one of the bridges over the Seinne in Paris.
Street lamps are one of my fav things, and I can take hundreds of photos of a single one LOL.
I did use some to the clues from the case file: checker pattern, frames, text print (hardly can be seen, but it is on the pale gray pp under the photo), arrows, metal, triangles, something ahiny and gold/silver accents.

All pp are Lemoncraft's from the Heart Painted collection.
I used Lindy's Gang products:
Chipboards are Creative Embellishments and Scrapiniec. I also used a Creative Embellishments' flair button (the other one is from StudioFourteen40). 
For the final touch I splatter some mists and added enamel dots
Here are some close-ups on the details:

Together Forever - GD for Scrap The Boys

I was very honored to be invited to be a Guest Designer at Scrap The Boys for November, with the them of: 
The only problem was to decide who will be my valentine - my eldest boy or the younger? Choosing one, or the other, could have caused WW3.... LOL
So I solved the dillema by picking a photo of me with my eldest, while I was pregnant with the youngest. So it's me with my two men.
I've used the Beautiful Altair Art papers, from the Ever Dream collection, and did a lot of fussy cutting.
I did some stamping here and there and used Lindy's products to add color to this beautiful pp. I used: 
sprays: Sweet Violet Purple Teal, Aloha Avocado.
ep: Weeping Willow Green Gold, Mery-Go-Round Green, King Midas Gold.
magical shaker: Bavarian Blue.
The chipboards are all Creative Embellishments.
Here are some close-ups:






I really loved working on this layout. I hope you like it.

Desktop calendar for Altair Art

Happy Friday!
Today it's my turn on Altair Art blog, and I'm sharing a desktop calendar I've made as a gift to a good friend of mine.
The sizes are 5.5"x7.5".

I've made this calendar from scratch, start to end.
The base was made from chipboards covered with efalin paper (which is perfect for binding!), and then I adhered Altair Art papers to both panels for the background.

I've made 6 pages from cardstock covered both sides with beautiful Altair Art papers, so each page holds two months.


After adhering the months pages (the file was made by the talented Moran Hamilton, and I backed the papers with cardstock), I decorated each side with lace, die cuts and beautiful florals which I fussy cut from the Altair Art papers. 
I added some enamel dots to extra finishing.

I used the following Altair Art papers:




Here are photos of some of the pages, along with close-ups on some of the detais:
