Here are the final four pages in my daughter Sarah’s calendar:
September showcases a photo from our lovely holiday in Cork last September with my mum. I have used a patterned paper for the base and then a Martha Steward corner punch on the green layer, plus a “Punch anywhere on the page ” punch to cut out the hearts to create the cascading border. The flowers were a stamp and die set “Bloom” from issue 191 of Simply Cards and Papercraft magazine.
October: dressed up for a Halloween party as characters from Fleabag.
The splats are a Tim Holtz die that I also used to create a stencil for the background:
November: a photo of Sarah with baby Hana. I have created a stamped frame using a home made mega wreath builder inspired by an idea from Gina K Designs.
The set of toy stamps are from Inkadinkado Welcome Baby 60-30108. After stamping the design I paper pieced every image which was a labour of love! The stitched hearts were an image from Woodware FRS118 Baby Patch Elephant.
December: a photo of Sarah and Jack visiting Covent Garden. The title (a Cricut freebie) was first drawn onto the background and then I cut out the words to glue on top. I used this title on a full sized 12×12 layout last week.
The parcels have been made with Sweet Dixie dies. The trees are part of a Paige Evans cut file, the other part I have used on Jack’s calendar.
I enjoyed creating this years calendars but my new years resolution for 2020 is to create the 48 8×8 layouts that I will need for the four calendars throughout the year so I’ll be ready for next Christmas!
