Welcome to My Paper Love and the Patches of Pink Design Team Link UP Party! I am very excited to be continuing as a DT member and look forward to working with the other continuing members and the new members. So let's get right to it... This months theme is Valentines Day. I really wanted to make something other than a card so I decided on a desk calendar. It was so simple to make and the best part was that I could add so much dimension and bling because it wasn't going in an envelope :) I designed the calendar as an Easel card which you can see a tutorial by Spitcoaststampers HERE.
I used a frame cut from the Cricut Storybook Cartridge for the base of the Calendar. I used my gypsy to hide and cut so I could have a shadow for the frame. I printed the dates on the smaller cut image and lastly, I added a flower made from a scallop punch along with some stickles that I just hand brushed all over the flower.
The printed paper is from K&Co and the other cardstock is from recollections. The hearts were scraps I found in my diecut drawer and they matched perfectly!
This was such a FUN project I think I'll make one each month, so check back so you can see what March will look like:)
I'm entering my calendar in a few challenges:
Celebrate the Occasion - Valentine's Day (must use a heart)
Die Cuttin Divas - Color Challenge The colors are red, pink, white, and black. Use at least two colors from the list provided.
Whimsical Designs - Colors of love (Red, White & One color of your choice)
