Tutorial by Rachael for her Calender

Hi Everyone

Just sharing a project made by Rachael for our latest blog challenge, this time using loads of lovely images to make a calendar

A simple idea for the base and then lots and lots of lovely decoration!

To make the base:
1. Using a piece of A4 card (about 300 gsm for strength) score lines at 9cm and 18cm from the left side, like this.

2. Score and fold the card to look like this:
3. Using a hole punch, make two holes at the top for two jump rings so that your pages will turn

4. decorate!

Now this is definitely the most fun.  There are details on Rachael's blog here.  All images used are found in the Etsy shop here.

The calendar was a simple table in word that I typed in the numbers for each month, however if you wanted ones with days on that match the year you can type in free calendar into the search engine and find loads (watch the copyright though and don't use images if you're not sure they're free!)
The months are a stamp set I picked up.

and so here it it....

January using 'Little party girls'

February using 'Love is'

March using 'Easter Bunny'

April using 'Paris'

May using 'Love my puppy'

June using 'Fly away'

July using 'Summer fayre'

August using 'little summer girls'

September using 'Little Autumn girls'

October using 'All dressed up for Mummy'

November using 'Time to share'

December using 'All dressed up for Christmas'

Please check out our blog here to enter - its anything goes as long as you use an All dressed up image and if you haven't got one there are loads of freebeis in the tab called Freebies!
