The challenge is to make a customized calendar… basically a DIY calendar…could be for wall or desk.
Round 1 we had some awesome inspirations and now for Round 2, there are some wonderful inspirations. You can check them out HERE.
So here is my creation for Round 2:
Another desk calendar… simple and clean… some nice pattern paper from Stampin’ Up! (retired), paper doilies (from the same paper pack) and a wonderful matching calendar (fantastic coincidence.. more on it later.)
So the previous calendar that I made (check it out HEREHERE), was made of just cardstock. This one uses chipboard. The triangular base is made of 3 pieces of chipboard- 2 pcs of 6″ x 6″ and 1 piece of 2″ x 6″. The three pieces are connected using cardstock hinges that measure 2″ x 6″ and scored at 1″. I got the idea for this base from THIS video. It was easy to make and stand nice!
So now I had the pattern paper on and the base was ready. Started to google search, pinterest search for calendars. I can not remember how I reach this particular blog, but somehow remembered to copy the link 😀 So I found this calendar with doilies…except the orientation was different… and then I see recommended link to the calendar I used above. YAYY!! Perfect for my project! Do check out this blog Scrappystickyinkymess…she has some wonderful freebies. The calendar I used can be found HERE.
Finally I added these stickers from Pink Fresh (was part of a Simon Says Stamp Card Kit)…pretty inspiring phrases I think. Some bling.. and my project was ready.
Making customized calendars was fun… my first time trying these… but totally enjoyed…so many tutorials out there … so many different styles to try ALAS!! Not enough time!! Hopefully you can find time to try one and join in the fun.
This is all for today,
Until next time,
