Desktop Calendar

Today I'm sharing a desktop calendar I created using PTI's CD cases, the Calendar die, the stamp set Calendar Basics, along with other sets.


Each month is a different color cardstock, with the image heat embossed with white detail embossing powder (Filigree).


I tried to choose colors that reflected the mood of each month.




It ended up being a close squeeze with all that thick cardstock, so I made a strip of cardstock with the label for the spine of the CD case. It was tricky to get a strip that small to cut straight, but I'm happy with how it turned out.

Have a great day!

"2011 Calendar" (all PTI unless noted)
Stamps: Calendar Basics, Year of Flower sets, Snowflake Serenade, In Bloom and First Fruits
Paper: Various PTI cardstocks, Mini calendar pages
Ink: Versamark, various PTI inks, and Dark Chocolate
Other: White Detail EP (Filigree), Calendar page die, CD case, heat tool

This is fabulous! Love the white embossing contrasting against the coloured cardstock! Now I'd think I be very tempted to keep August on my desk for a bit longer than a month *wink*

This turned out fabulous! While many of us are fixated on the fact that the series is incomplete, you very beautifully solved the dilemma. How very clever to add the snowflakes and In Bloom for the missing months!
