Today I would like to share with you a calendar which I made for 2015, using ours kids school photos and the beautiful papers from Maja Design various collections. It is my first ever handmade calendar and I was a bit afraid that I will not have a patience to make a page for each month 😉 Instead I made a 4-pager – one page for each tertial (and each of our children) and one with the whole year overview.
I found a website where you can print out a year calendar in different formats. I printed one on a piece of Maja Design paper cut to a size A5. I decorated the corners with a collage of cut outs.
I composed each page in 2 parts- one plain, containing the calendar and the upper part decorated with photos and papers. The calendar is free-standing, mounted on a triangle cardstock base, so each page could get as much dimensional elements as I wanted.
As the bottom part is plain, I could pick almost any pattern to set the theme for the upper part. Many of MD collections have a paper with cut out elements which are perfect for the matting under the photos.
For the ‘boy’ page I created a fairytale scene with the houses of Nyhavn and the vintage baloons of Vintage Autumn Basics.
Products I used:
Nyhavn – Old townhouses, Strolling along the canal, Sitting at the dock
Vintage Autumn Basics – No II, No XVI, No XIV, Heritage
Vintage Summer Basics – 1922,
Vintage Frost – 22nd of December
Vintage Spring Basics – Days to remember
Coffee in the harbour- Flourishing garden
Crea Diem – Ord flyger bort
Other supplies: gesso, chipboard (BFS) , flowers
Thanks for stopping by, it was a long post so I hope you have enjoyed it 🙂
Your calendar is definitely the prettiest I’ve seen – the papers and photos of your kids are just lovely. Thanks for sharing.
This is so lovely! I will keep this idea for later. Very inspirational.
