Here's a calendar I made for my Aunt. Her birthday is in late November, so I'm giving her this calendar a little earlier for her birthday. I used my favorite Papertrey Ink Patterned Paper: Black and White Basics. Interesting because I've never been a big fan of black, but in crafting I think it's one of my most favorite colors. It also happens to be my Aunt's favorite color so I thought this would be perfect for her. I'm making more of these for Christmas gifts in different PTI PP designs too.
I didn't make a cover because the spine already has the 2011 calendar label and I think that works and you get the idea. Besides I didn't want to hide that pretty paper! The spine was stamped on adhesive paper trimmed to fit (1/4" x 4-3/4").
I stamped the months in red and the holiday circle images in a pale light blue. Here's a closeup.
And here are a few of the other months just to give you an idea. You can click on them to see them bigger if you would like. So here you go. :)
I think the idea is to find some nice coordinating PP, vary the background slightly each month to keep it interesting, stamp the months in a contrasting bold color and the holidays in a lighter color.
Thanks for taking a look. Hope those with snow keep warm, and that you all have a wonderful, sunny day today!
ETA: You can see the entire gift set I made for my Aunt HERE.
This is cute. I love the idea of using the patterned papers instead of handstamping.
Lovely, Monica! Beautiful patternpapers! Great idea! Thanks for the inspiration :)
Love the patterned paper! Great idea thanks for sharing :o)
Looks great with that paper!! Job well done!
The black and white is a great idea for this project. Clean and simple!
Ugh! Wish I had seen this sooner! I would have cranked out a few for my craft fair tomorrow. Hand stamping all the pages would be so time consuming for craft fair item, but using PP is brilliant! Nicely done!
I love this Monica! I love how you made a beautiful, yet fairly simple to produce gift for your Aunt. You made great use of the new calendar set.
Fab job, Monica! I adore your use of those gorgeous DPs and how sweet a gift this is!
what a great idea to use patterned paper. Calendars overwhelm me but this is a great idea. Yours came out beautiful.
Hi Monica, thank you for your lovely comment on my blog.
Your calendar is absolutely stunning, what a fabulous gift!
I wish that I had thought of using patterned papers!
I love the simplicity of this - but the papers give it such a 'wow'. People will LOVE getting these as gifts... good job, crafty Santa! ;)
