Calendar Scrap Kit

After posting this month's challenge and offering "a Calendar kit of some kind," I started looking at some options.  There are many kits out there, some cheaper than others.  I found one I liked the look of (and the price of) and realized it was something I could make quite easily!  So, here it is, the calendar kit for this month's challenge:


The kit includes a spiral bound 8.5" x 5.5" chipboard book to decorate, 
12 month calendar grids, and an easel back for desk display.

I made a few sample pages to show how it works, and had a blast going through all different seasons of my paper stock, instead of just looking for wintery sheets!







As you can see, there is plenty of room for a photo, sentiment, or list of special dates on every month page.

Now for the cool part- I will be sending one of these kits, a $14 value, to EVERY PERSON who comments on the club challenge this month!  So hop on over, take a look, and leave us a comment to claim your calendar kit!  (Make sure we have a way to get in touch with you!)

Happy Holidays from the Crazy Crafters Club!

Colors of Winter Projects

Well, December is here, and those of us who were supposed to be helping to motivate the group have been in need of some motivation ourselves!

Thank you and congratulations to NickeyCole, who posted in October's Free-for-all challenge about some projects she's been working on!  Rose will be in touch with you to get you your prize pack!

I seem to find more inspiration in wintertime than the rest of the year.  If you visit my blog, you will see some of the projects I have been coming up with this past week as I have been trying to organize all of my supplies.  But something I have been thinking about this morning is color schemes for the holidays.  Long gone is the standard red and green, being replaced by pale blue and white, or green, ivory, and gold.  But it doesn't stop there!

I want to know the craziest, oddest, most unusual color combination you have seen for a winter holiday project- it can be in advertising, crafts, horrible sweaters, whatever!  Just post a comment telling about the colors, and if possible, list a link so we can see what you mean!
