I got this fabulous idea from the talented Linda on her blog the funkie junkie
I made it with Beth's papers that I printed onto cardstock. I inked the edges with Walnut Stain distress ink. The main calendar part was cut out using the Top Note Sizzix die(SU) and my Bigshot. I cut out the butterflies from the kit and added Stickles Star Dust glitter glue to them. I added a metal clip (Tim Holtz) to easily change the month.
I used Addicted To Love ATC's by Beth Rimmer for my February calendar:
I used Christmas Red Stickles on the tiny hearts. I inked the edges of this month with Barn Door &Tea Stain Distress Inks. Here's a close up:
To make the calendar frame:
L'Esprit du Cirque to make the calendar frame. I taped it to a piece of thin cardboard and used Walnut Distress Ink on the edges of the cardstock. The stamp is a Tim Holtz stamp. So everytime I change the month I can read this great quote. Here is the back of the calendar:
I also made some Thank You Cards with Beth's Impressionist Garden
I dry embossed the paper using Backgrounds 1 Stampin' Up! Texturz Plates under the buttons and the black cardstock using my Bigshot. The stamps are from Stampin Up.
The friends that I'm going to give these to, love purses Thanks for looking!
