I made several of these calendars to give away as gifts this year. I felt like an assembly line doing all of them. I also find myself using the same techniques from the artist of the calendar, Kelly Goree. She uses her permanent black pen to draw in stitches, lines to frame the page, squiggles, lines inside the chipboard lettering. So, now I am finding myself doing the same on layouts that I have been working on.
am sharing some of the pages of the calendar with you. I apologize for the graininess of the photos... seems odd. I do not remember them being grainy when I first took them. Our photo library is on my husbands computer and he downloaded the Antivirus 360 virus onto his computer and now the whole computer is malfunctioning. I do not know if this is why these pics came out this way or maybe I jiggled the camera when I took the pictures... hmmm curious.
The calendar is easy to assemble and put together, for those of you who were able to snatch one of these calendars up. And such a treat to be able to have a new memory each month all year long!
I also finished the February Kit of the Month. Each month one of the girls from the Design Team at Scrappin Good Times creates a two page layout to sell in the store. My month is February and it came out so stickin' cute. I used the Splendid line from Fancy Pants Designs. It is a layout - obviously a Valentine's theme - that can be used for both girls and boys. I'll post a picture closer to the end of the month not to spoil the surprise. But I will say I used the black pen idea I got from doing the Basic Grey Calendar. There are black stitches, and lines to frame the page and squiggles with small hearts... so much fun!
Happy New Year!
