2016 Calendar - January to March
Here it is! Our 2016 CD case calendars!
Our annual Mom and Me project. It takes us about a week and a half to put the calendars together - after I've spent about a month cutting and gluing pieces to prepare. This year I also used my unmounted wheels to stamp all the backgrounds. Each month has its own background stamp based on season, holiday, or 'feeling' I get from that month.
The large snowflake cut for January is from the When It's Cold Outside cartridge. Can you see the snowmen? Each snowflake on this cartridge has a different theme. SO fun!
I decided to use a purple (lilac) background for February - everything is red, pink, and white - it needed a contrast color, or I'm more limited with color choices. Yes, I use the vertical hears EVERY year. They're my favorite - what can I say!??
ROY G. BIV - have you ever met him? He's beautiful, and only shows up after rain storms or appears in waterfalls! The rainbow is a 'new' die I bought from MFTstamps.com I cut 10 or 12 of them out of the colors, and found a way to put them all back together for the calendars! The pot 'o gold comes from a Stampin' Up cloud punch with the gold glimmer paper!
