2009 Calendar January and February

Here are some pictures of the calendar I'm making for myself for next year as promised in my last post. I'll upload the months two at a time in order (although I've not made them in order so don't have them all to upload yet). Its made on an acrylic album by papermania and I decided to do it all in penny black stamps so its the same throughout.

January



* Penny black Ski patrol stamp (received in an image swap) coloured with whispers brush strokes.
* Papers from Summertime designs winter gifts kit
* xcut snowflake punch
* iridescent glitter glue
* sizzix extended cuts wingo zingo alphabet

February
* Penny black message from above stamp, coloured with whispers brush strokes.
* prima hydrangea flowers brushed with a gold ink pad
* Papermania red flowers
* nestabilities scalloped square dies
* papers from shabby princess seasonal sampler kit
* heart locket charm
* Sizzix rat-a-tat alphabet.

I love this idea Sarah. Your first two months pages are fab. I was actually thinking of doing one of these for myself after I saw it on papermania hour on QVC's recent craft day! Could you just confirm that the acrylic albumn has 6 pages! I would love one of these to sit on my desk in my new craft room!
Hugs, Vicky x

What a great idea - I would never have thought of using one of those albums for this!
I'm decorating some of the Papermill blank calendars for Christmas presents this year, but I might try this next year...
