I finally finished my 2015 calendar today - here is December. It brings me great joy to look at my calendar each day and remember the fun I had making the layout. For the most part I didn't use photos; I tried instead to convey a feeling for the month using paper and embellishments. This layout is my take on Bo Bunny's October Sketch Challenge.
Most of the materials used on this layout are from Bo Bunny's Altitude collection. I really love the little cut-out cards - the ones at the top are removable. Everything is embellished with Stickles; I wish you could see the sparkle!
I've been making my own calendar this year, one or two months at a time. On the left is the October page, suitably spooky. All of the paper is old and of unknown origin. I made the bat with my Cricut.
To the right is the November page. Where I live in Alaska, we don't have vibrant colors in the fall, but rather more muted, subdued shades. I was hoping that my calendar page would reflect that. Just about everything on the layout is from an SEI kit, Autumn's Smile, but the flowers are from Prima.
