Hey there friends and crafty peeps! Ginny here with 10 cards to share. Yes you read that correctly. I created 10 cards with the October pages from the all new Calendar collection.

If you like clean and simple card designs then these will be right up your alley! I like to think of them more as sweet and simple as they are not 1 layer with no embellishments but the design of each is uncomplicated and easy to reproduce.

I’m always drawn to plaids and this gorgeous version is perfect for Halloween!  One of the 12 x 12 sheets was this lovely pattern so I decided to to use it as the base for 3 of the A2 sized cards. There is plaid on the inside as well. The focal images and tags are on the cut apart sheet and I layered them on a simple white die cut doily and topped them off with coordinating bow.

I was able to use the off cuts from the plaid along with the sweet polka dot to create the base for these cards. The smaller cut aparts are stacked on a squarish die cut…this time cut from black cardstock and finished with the same plaid bow.

The patterns for these cards was the backside of the 12 x 12 page of larger cut aparts. Layered on top are elements from the smaller cut apart page. You could easily decide to clip these images apart for smaller add ons…..but I liked them grouped together for a bigger impact. Kinda reminds me of movie theater posters.. No bows for these…but I did add some die cut glitter stars and real vintage buttons.

For the last 2 cards I did a bit of patchwork to create the base or layering elements and included the stars and buttons.

All this from 4 sheets of paper with only black cardstock added for borders.
