Guest designer at Robin's nest...

Good morning crafters. Today I am here to bring you a awesome project. I am a guest designer today for Robin's nest and the Chattering Robins. Boy am I all excited and nervous.

My project for today Is a Forever Calendar. I used a piece of wood that was 6" x 14". The board is a pine surface. I used a lot of Robin's nest dewdrops. Dewdrops are so fun to use and very easy to glue down. I use paper that I got from Robin's nest a few years ago. The green and white mini rosettes are from Micheal's. The word family is from colorboc chipboard alphabets. I painted it in country tan and inked it in blue. I used dewdrops in Crimson – DD 195 on my letters. I put antique lace on the top and the bottom of the plaque. I added sea green string of pearls to the top lace. I used white lace flowers on the bottom of the plaque with flat back flowers in the center. I put 21 green rosettes and 19 white rosettes along the edges of the plaque and the top. I hung 12 chipboard squares sized in 1 inch with 12 gold jump rings and 12 gold eye hooks. I covered the squares with the same paper as I used on the plaque. I inked them in the same color as I used for the letters. I used dewdrops in Pansies and Sprinkles-DD 159 on the top of my squares. I put dew stackables between the white flowers. I used Hillside and Riverside dewdrops as designs on the plaque. To adhere everything down on the plaque I used glossy accents, the hot glue gun, and inkssentials glue n' seal. I found out that using the Marvy  jewel picker was the best option for gluing all these dewdrops down. It was a big help in my project.On the back I put two silver eyehooks and some antique lace to hang it up.

The following is a few photos to show you how I did it and the outcome of my forever calendar.

I hope you enjoyed my forever calendar and it inspired you to go and get some dewdrops from the Robin's nest and use them on your creations.
