July Place in Time with ScrapTownLady

Happy Saturday crafty friends!  (Moxxie Hoppers - the hop post is here.)

It's my day to post over at the ScrapTownLady blog and for today it's all about Place in Time for July.  All of you Graphic 45 fans know exactly what I'm talking about!

Place in Time is a beautiful collection created to allow you to make your own calendar project with beautiful touches of nostalgia and timeless elegance.  I am using the 12x12 paper stack and mixing in some 6x6 papers from the French Country collection.

Here's my July project:

I decided to use the decorative strips for my July title and the "B" side of the July calendar paper.  I took my scissors to the cut-aparts and just had a little fun with it.  Aren't these classic summer images amazing?  I just love them all!  You'll see a card from me using these scraps soon too.

This page features a variety of manufacturer dies from the store.

I used a beautiful chipboard flourish by Blue Fern Studios, painted with some cream acrylic paint and once dry, dabbed a bit of Weathered Wood Distress Ink on it. It made the flourish morph into the design so nicely. You can find a beautiful variety of Blue Fern Studios chipboard in the store here.

Layered up a few doilies for texture.
