Desk Calendar





Hello,

I really enjoy Carolina's Anything but a Card Challenge on STV and last weeks was to use a 'Bulldog Clip' or Paper Clip and Tissie it up!!!

I thought it would make a wonderful way to display my desk calendar ..... What do you think??


This is a plain black Bulldog Clip with some polka dot dp adhered to the front. Over that I've attached my sentiment (two GKD sets where used here).

Using a Spellbinder blossom die I cut three size blossoms from three red scraps, scrunched them up then opened them out and inked around the edges roughly. A lemon button sits in the centre and I also punched some fern and attached this behind the largest blossom petals.
Then just to tidy it up I punched another large blossom and stuck this over the back.
A glue dot holds this onto the clip. A scrap of green ribbon was tied on next to finish the clip off.

The calendar is a 3.5 inch copy of my large calendar. In Photoshop Elements I put six of these on one A4 size page, leaving a small gap between each one. Printed out 2 sheets and them cut them to 3.75 inch and sat them onto 4" square SU Sahara Sand card stock. One month on either side so 6 cards in all.
I've used several of the GKD sets to stamp a small image in the top left hand corner of each month, coloured with Copics and/or Prismas and added either a gem or a pearl to finish off.

Hope you like this ........ Carolina has given us some wonderful challenges, I might not make mine in the challenge week but I try most of them. I'm loving this one it looks so cute sitting on my desk.

Till next time.........

Click on the ribbon in the side bar for the chance of some wonderful candy!!!
