Calendar – 2014

on February 4, 2014

Warning! A long and picture heavy post :). I have made this calendar for my mom, and I hope she likes it when she sees it. Since I could only start making the calendar in the middle of January, I started the calendar with February 2014, and finished it with January 2015.

For the front cover, I  stamped different die cuts with various messages. I wanted to keep the front bright and cheerful, so I used a multicoloured pp. I lined the top and bottom with pink adhesive ribbon/tape, and used 3D foam tape on the central pink die cut to make it stand out.

For February, I went with the theme of Valentine’s. I used red and white heart die cuts, white decorative tape, and added some relevant stickers on layered red and white card stock. I added in important dates to the calendar such as holidays and birthdays.

2Feb3Mar

I wanted to signify spring for the month of March. Hence the choice of the colours and the pp. Colored tape, die cut borders, glitter embellishments, pearls and card stock were used to complete this page.

My theme for April was Easter. I had an old book with lots of Easter  stickers in it, and I used that to form my page. I bordered the pp with brown quilling strips, added in the stickers, and voila, I was done!

5May

Mother’s day is in May, and that was the theme I used for may. My mother loves roses and pearls, so I used both of these to form the page.

I kept June Simple. There wasn’t a theme as such. I just used a bright coloured pp, coordinating card stock, and added some foam stars.

6Jun

7Jul

My mother’s birthday is in July, and monsoons usually start for her in July. So these two were used for July. The pp itself signifies rain drops, and I added in some stickers. I stamped birthday messages on the page, and bordered the page using quilling strips.

August is my birthday, so I added in the words “My favourite” so she could think of me this month 🙂 I used glittered flowers, and butterfly punches. I traced out flourishes in coordinating blue card stock.

8Aug

9Sep

September is another month of celebration in our home as it is my brother’s birthday. So I kept this page a bit masculine.

Autumn forms the theme for October. The pp itself was so bright, that I didn’t want to embellish it much. I simply lined the two edges of the page with butterfly punch outs

11Nov

My mom also loves keep a pretty garden, so that was the theme from November.

No surprises for guessing what’s for December…Christmas! I used decorative tape on the edges, and punched out snowflakes.

12Dec

13Jan

January 2015 was the last page for this calendar. I kept it simple, and just added stickers with simple messages such as “love”, “smile”, “celebrate”, “remember”, etc.

The last page is also simple. It has just a plain pp on which I have stamped the words “Sending my Love” on it. I’ve placed a sticker of my blog below it, like I do on all my hand-created items.

And that completes my calendar! If you would like to know where the materials I’ve used are from, please drop me a mail. I will be happy to let you know!
