Recently I saw a beautiful calendar on Joanne's blog and inquired about the calendar template and she was kind enough to share it with me. You can find it here at MyPaperSecret.
I decided to go with a tall calendar, so I stamped each of the Flourishes year of flowers stamps and matted them with black after coloring. I added a coordinating piece of punched cardstock to the bottom of each page for interest. I used the inserts from SU! dp packs to make the stand, but found the longer pages were just too heavy to stand on their own, so I added 2 pieces of chipboard (the backing from legal pads) to the inside of the stand pages and that worked perfectly! I'm not posting all 12 months, but just a random sampling of a few. Above you see the month of January featuring the Crocus.
This is April with the daffodil.
December's flower is the Amaryllis.
This is a side view of the calendar and shows how it stands up. This is going to my sweet neighbor for Christmas.
Thanks for the link Joanne, and thanks to Cristina for sharing the calendar template! Much appreciated ladies!
Happy Monday Everyone!
