2012 Calendar

It has been a while since I have posted anything on my blog. Well when you see this project, you will know why. I love making calendars for gifts and decided to make one for a friend. I got the template for the calendars at Cat's Creations. She is so nice to offer these templates for free. I used the stampable CD 6 x 6 template. I went to Michaels and purchased a 4 x 6 acrylic frame.
I used the Year of Flowers Collection Stamp Set from Papertrey Ink and sat down one evening and started coloring in with my copics. I started with August so my friend could start using it now.
You will see my theme is flowers and butterflies. For September I used a Martha Stewart Butterfly punch. The border for September is also PTI. For October I used some of the Nestability shapes that I had on hand. The butterfly is from PTI.
The papers are all from a 6 x 6 Stella Rose pad. Loved these colors and they seemed to go so well with my coloring. I used a Stampin Up butterfly set for November and December.
For January I used a stamp and punch from SU and for February I used a single Butterfly stamp I had and heat embossed with black. I colored in with my copics.
I think March and April were my favorite months. March - because the yellow just pops and April because I love the Sweet peas and the peach color. The border is a Martha Stewart Punch.
For May I used a butterfly stamp from Stampin Up and a cute border punch that I purchased at Michaels. For June I used the butterfly die from Stamp Up as my background.
And to finalize my set, I used another SU stamp for the butterfly and some nestabilities for my flower set.

Well this was my project for the week. I hope you enjoy. Hopefully I will make one for myself one of these days.
