Today’s share is my first calendar for 2015. It is getting to that time of the year & with a market coming up this Sunday, thought it would be great to make a start on my calendars for next year. I enjoy creating them & find them to be very popular.
To download a free copy of the A5 Landscape 2015 Calendar, please click on the link at the bottom of this post.
To create my calendar, I printed out the year onto A5 photo copy paper, trimmed back a little from both sides, as I like a little of the coloured Card to be showing all around the edge. I punched 2 holes with the Handheld 1/16″ Circle Punch at the top of the calendar & inserted a Mini Brad into each hole.
For the top of the calendar, I stamped 3 flowers from the Flower Shop Stamp Set, coloured with Coastal Cabana & Rich Razzleberry Blendabilities, added small dots with the White Stampin’ Chalk Marker before punching out with the Pansy Punch.
I adhered small strips of Coastal Cabana Card to a piece of Rich Razzleberry DSP prior to adhering to a piece of Whisper White Card & finally to a piece of Rich Razzleberry Card which I had cut back to 8 1/4″ x 9″.
The “2015” was printed onto a scrap of Whisper White Card, punched with the Large Oval Punch & adhered to a piece of Coastal CabanaCard which has been punched with the Scallop Oval Punch prior to adhering to top of calendar.
The flowers were adhered to the calendar top – centre one with a Stampin’ Dimensional & the other 2 with Multipurpose Glue.
To complete the calendar, the months were adhered to the bottom of the Rich Razzleberry Card leaving a small edge around all 4 sides. Pearls were adhered to the centre of each flower as well as randomly scattering around the top of the calendar.
Be sure to check back over the next couple of weeks, as more will be added, including different calendar sizes.
Until next time, Happy Stampin’
