Calendar - January & February

Oooo, two posts in one day, I must be on a roll! Not really, I started making this calendar about two months ago and decided I needed to get on with it if it is to be finished in time for the New Year :) (told you I was the slowest crafter EVER). So here's January and February...



















January (Black one). The main image comes from Joanna Sheen Fashion Boutique CD, and is printed onto Jaquard Inkjet Silk and padded up. The frame it's mounted onto is made with Cuttlebug decorative corner die and gold silk mirri card. The gold buttons where made with the "waste" from the centre of the corners and put through the cuttlebug in an embossing folder. 2009 was handmade. I printed the numbers onto thick paper cut them out traced round them on to some mount board, cut them out them triple embossed with Heat It Up Gold Tinsel EP. Then all mounted onto some black Tapestry Card.
February - The backing paper is computer generated. It was a picture I'd found on the internet aaages ago (can't remember where from) and it was originally turquoise, but I put it through my graphics program and changed it to green (as you do)and printed it onto pearlescent white paper. The orchid picture and bookmark were made using Joanna Sheen's Floral Fantasy CD, though I did add the sentiment on the bookmark myself which I found on The Quote Garden website. I decoupaged the orchid mounted it and the bookmark sleeve on gold silk mirri card. The bookmard was printed onto plain white card mounted onto emerald green Stardream pearlscent card then covered with matt transparent film. The main sentiment again was from The Quote Garden, printed onto the same design as the main backing paper, but this time it was lightened and printed onto linen paper and put through the cuttlebug with a rectangle nestability.
Phew, I almost got out of breath after all that lot. Maybe tomorrow if I get over the computer writers cramp I'll post March and April. Oh if you're wondering what the white bit is on the right of the calendar pictures is, it's where the calendar bit is going, but that's another story.
Take care and keep smiling
