Getting Ready for the New Year

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...Not that I want to make this year go any faster!  But I just wanted to make a little calendar for next year.
Remember the Butterfly card that I just made, you can see it here.  Well this is made using that little cut out from the center front of the card.  I had a bunch of them leftover and so I started playing around with them and this is what I came up with.
 The base for the calendar is a chip board coaster.  If you ask at you local Restaurant they will usually give you a couple.
I covered it with a piece of pattern paper from the Clementine paper pack you can see it here. 
I sponged everything with Twilight ink Z2160 except for the 2013.  That I sponged with Sorbet Z2164
The calendar is a free printable online for 2013.
The Ribbon in the Dark Chocolate Striped Grosgrain Ribbon Z1617
You can order everything you need here!

These make great stocking stuffer too!  Who doesn't need a little calendar they can put just about anywhere.

    I have been wanting to make this calendar since I first saw it. I was going through my notes and
    I remembered I was going to make the girls in the office these for Christmas stocking gifts. I don't have a gypsy and rely on my CCR. Can you please tell me how to make these.
    Sincerely Kathy Harrison

    1. Hi Kathy,
      In the CCR just select the Art Philosophy cartridge and the mat shape you want to use for behind your calendar. The size will depend on the size of your coaster and the calendar pages that you use.
      The background paper is cut out and glued to the coaster then I sanded around it and sponged it to go with the colors that I used.
      Hope that helps. If you need anymore info just let me know.
      Thanks for the question!
