Supplies for today’s post:
Cardstock – white, various colors based on choice of patterned paper
Patterned Paper – DCWV All Seasons 12” x 12” pack
Small monthly calendars or Excel spreadsheet software
CottageCutz dies – Calendar Months, Calendar Icons, Double StitchedRectangles
To start my calendar, I die-cut the months of the year and the icons. I cut the icons from white cardstock and colored them appropriately with markers. In addition, I cut a white panel using the largest Double Stitched Rectangles die.
I created a calendar for each month using Excel, cut it out as well as the background cardstock and appropriate patterned paper for each month. The color scheme of the patterned paper determined the color of the base cardstock. The photo here is for the month of January. Each page of the calendar was created in a similar manner.
After adhering the panels onto the blue background panel, I adhered it to a 5 ½” x 7 ¼” white panel. Each calendar page is two-sided so that the final calendar has six panels (January/December, February/November, March/October, April/September, May/August, June/July).
