and a Happy New Year to you all!
It's been awhile, I've been relaxing and just doing a little crafting.....
So here's the first project for 2017 some little desk calendars. I make calendars every year and pass out as gifts to family and friends and thought I'd share this years calendars with you all.
A side view so you can see how it stands....and no you don't need glasses the photo is a tad blurry, but it does show how the calendars stand! Oh my goodness the longer I look at this photo the more it's like looking through someone else's glasses and it's very disconcerting so scroll down quickly! So sorry 😉
Just a couple of them to show that I did change up the floral arrangement a little on each one. Suffice to say out of the 20 I made they all looked slightly different.
I got two calendars out of one sheet of A4 card stock. I used the Botanical Blooms stamps and framelits from Stampin' Up. The details on the flowers were some lines drawn on each petal with a dark pink marker and the some darker pinky red ink sponged with a dauber in to the middle of each flower. The flower stamens were cut from yellow card stock, that I coloured with the dark pink marker on the straight bits, the ends were left yellow and the centre of each stamen was coloured with a dark brown marker ......I hope that makes sense. I was inspired by this idea for the calendars from this pinterest post . I had tried a few calendar design ideas but was not feeling the love. So when I saw the floral design on the packaging "bada bing, bada boom" my calendar was born!
The sentiment is from Kinda Eclectic also from SU as well as the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set that I stamped with kraft ink, stamped off first, then stamped onto the background of the kraft CS.
Well that's all today. I hope your day is truly wonderful.
Cheers Donna 😁
