life{365} 2015

As always the new year is a time for new beginnings
As in past years we are beginning the year with new kits and  new workshops.  It is also a new year of life{365}. 
Life{365} has become a tradition at Girlfriends and at the end of every year we get to see how it has all come together.  We want to share some of the pictures of last years collection completed with pictures...this is only a part of the full collection...there are still more to go!

This year is much the same as last year in the details
Cost: $32.50
if you miss a month of choose to skip a month or just want to pick and choose
Kits will be ready each month between the first and the tenth of the month.  If you are out of town you need to have a cc on file with us so we can charge and ship each month or if you prefer every couple of months.
Now for the fun stuff!
The pages for this month are designed!
The kits are ready!
We are shipping on Friday!
Here are your pages!
Now some details.
Inside your kit you will find a bunch of little parts and pieces.  In this little packet you will find your photo mats and parts and pieces for each page. 

Among those little parts and pieces you will find a little owl...I made them all so each of you would have a completed little owl.  I thought all the little pieces might be lost in the packet so it seemed right to make it for you.
In this picture you will see that I have punched edges and borders.  If you are to complete this kit as shown you will need to have a border punch to use in constructing your pages.  You will also need a corner rounder and a chip-off-the-old-block punch.  These are basics for the whole year.
In the case of the brackets I have traced one on a piece and it should be your pattern for any others.
This is a closeup of your little snowman's face.  I used a black ZiG writer to create  his face and the stitchmarks on his nose.
For instructions on how to create the dimensional lolly on this page go to the blog and under pages on the right hand side of the blog is a little tutorial...read it and then be prepared because they are habit forming!

The tags on the right hand side of this page create space for NINE! pictures on this page.  I have precut the tag piece for you.  It is a great way to increase the space for pictures on any page.  Also you will nest the little owl over the title block on the left hand side.  I used foam tape to lift the owlie!

If you want to see the pages up close and personal just stop by the shop.  We have redecorated the front display for a couple of them and the Through the Year book will reside here when the time comes.  The other pages will be on the wall in the classroom. 
This little corner of heaven is filled with inspiration.  Come by and see what we have to share with you anytime!
