JJ Birthday Book

As it is a Monday, it's Anything But a Card Day at Bugaboo's blog, Catch The Bug! Today is my turn and I have used my Papertrey page die along with a whole bunch of JJ images from Bugaboo to create a Birthday Book/Diary.


Jodie has created a few sets called Calendar Months for a range of her characters. This means that you can easily have an image to suit every month of the year. I created a template for the pages in Microsoft Publisher and then inserted a JJ image onto each. Here's January:


And February:


And as it's October:


As it was intended as a birthday book, I used Baking JJ on the cover as I think she looks like she is struggling to bake a birthday cake. Finished off with a few jump rings and ribbon and viola!

I am entering this card into the One Stop Craft No Designer Paper challenge and Craft Catz's Birthday challenge. Stampin Sisters have a Time theme too so the calendar element fits in with that. My Time To Craft want Dies, well each page has been cut with one. The ric rac is also a Papertrey die cut.
