Home made calendar. The first photo shows the front and back covers of my calendar. They are cut from a Graphics 45 paper pad (12″ X 12″). No idea of the name of the paper pad or when I purchased it. I just fell in love the the cover and it’s perfect for my calendar. No stamping yet. The poinsettia is die cut from a Elizabeth Craft Designs die here. I had made it and not used it. It’s the perfect color and I just had to use it on the cover.
I chose double-sided papers to go into the calendar and stamped front and back of each page with the Hero Arts Calendar Bold Prints stamp. I was wondering if some of the patterns would obscure the stamp, but it didn’t. I have no trouble making notes and printing and using digital stamps and regular stamping on the pages. The umbrellas are from a Hero Arts cut file at A2Z I started my calendar mid-March and April is on the back of March. June is on the back of the May Calendar page. I have all kinds of notes and love the page. A key die-cut from a soda can is covered with a silver pen.
May is a celebration of Carnaval in San Francisco on May 27 and 28. That’s why I chose the paper and Destination San Francisco stamp which can be custom ordered through A2Z or at Hero Arts here..
You can see the calendar below the “APRIL” die cut letters. I can still write dates and info in the squares. I stamped the umbrella with the wood block Destination Paris stamp on the umbrella. The umbrellas are from a cut files available at A2Z, called Weather Cuts Digital File.
July is bright and cherry with flowers as the background. I thought the new stamp set Hero Arts Enjoy the Journey was perfect for this enchanting background. A bottle with some nautical images is perfect for this calendar. I know I will enjoy this so much.
The pattern for August may not be as imposing or enchanting as other patterns, but I would love to travel out of the hot valley here in Sacramento, maybe in a ship.
The ships from Enjoy the Journey work for me.
You can catch me at A Bit of This and That.
