To close out, Annette challenged herself and the results are amazing. You will definitely want to challenge yourself as well - enjoy her project and tutorial!

"I wondered if I challenged myself to create as many projects as I could with only the December Flourish page and the coordinating Cut-Aparts page plus two sheets of cardstock, how much could I make? The only other items I used were ribbon and baker’s twine. I was able to create two gift card holders, four tags, two 4 ½” x 4 ½” cards and two 4” x 6” cards. What a fun afternoon I had creating these! My Snapguide tutorial shows you all the measurements and instructions for everything I made here." ~Annette

You guys give away some many awesome ideas! Thank you very much for sharing!

LOVED Anette Green's Tutorial!!! Question...how do you use a 1" circle punch to make the half moon tab on the first gift card holder???

Oh my gosh! These projects are all beautiful and I absolutely love all the fussy cutting. It always ads so much to a project

I love Graphic 45 paper and would love to add to my collection.

LOVE. Graphic 45 would love to WIN!!!!!

I've ordered the Time to FLourish papers stamps and some of the chipboards and I can hardly wait fo them to arrive so that I can make a calendar. The set is timeless and I can see myself using it again year after year.

Love all Nadya's projects'
