I don't know about you but the weather has been so dreary lately that I've started thinking about Christmas gifts. I decided to make a wall and desk calendar, both in different styles and as I'm going to be really busy for a while, this is the first of several scheduled posts showing the wall calendar.
I used textured card stock for the backing and then cut the frame using the Cricut and Elegant Edges Cartridge, which I then put through the Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots embossing folder. The monthly calendar tabs are double-sided and mounted onto contrasting card with ribbons sandwiched between the two layers to make it easy to pull them out and change them.
I mounted the frame onto a double layer of 3D foam strips with a piece of acetate attached to the back to make a window. The corsetry images are stamped using Crafty Individuals' CI-306, the other stamps are from assorted sets.
It's easy to make your own calendars as their are plenty of free printable sites out there but I used http://www.printfree.com/Calendars.htm
