Last month I made myself a Christmas shopping mini to carry in my purse. This month I made myself a 2013 calendar book in which I can keep track of my design team deadlines and challenges.
I opened and stacked 3 cards which formed my 12 calendar pages. Using my long arm stapler, I stapled the cover and pages together down the center fold.
I used these Gecko Galz products to create the pages:
Calendar Days collage sheets
Violets Are Blue collage sheets: printed 1/2 size and fussy cut to create my own collage stickers
3 sheets from from Vanity Fair Digital Paper Pack: striped tags made from Picadilly patterned paper, decorative tape, journal plates
I resized the decorative tape, smaller to tape the calendars, larger for the covers. I also resized the plates to fit my circle punch.
I used the same design on each page, varying the trims.
ColorBok earthtone paper pack: calendar mats and blue paper for calendars
Markers for outlining: black Sharpie, Ranger Vintage Photo
Ranger distress inks: Weathered Wood, Tea Dye, Aged Mahogany, Worn Lipstick
Stampin' Up ink pad and ink pen in Crumb Cake
Ranger brass distress stain and punchinella (sequin waste)
Red Lead Paperworks hand died pink ribbon
Jenni Bowlin butterfly
buttons and other trims from my stash
