2010 Calendar

Below is the rest of the calendar I made for Christmas presents. I used a theme each month that represents that month.

My Cricut cut all the parts of the calander. Many dimensionals were used to pop things up and I absolutely loved my new Creatopia to glue all the small things and words. What a time saver it is.



I just loved this cross!


I stamped the flowers on the flower pot using a border
stamp from Crafty Secrets. I paper pieced the flowers.


Isn't this the cooliest butterfly? It is on the Home
Accents Cricut Cartridge. I mixed blue and orange
Flower Soft (so that it matched my colors) for the body (thorax)
of the butterfly.

Red, white and blue represents our freedom in
the United States.A great time to remember what
our soldiers have done for us!

I used Cuttlebug Embossing foloders for both
the bird and the bird house. Black pearls were added
for the bird's eye and the hole in the birdhouse.


September was my hardest month. I worked almost
2 days on this month as I just wouldn't come together
for me. I changed things several times, but was pleased
with my final results. The stamp is from JustRite's
Birthday Wishes Stamp set.

I wanted to use pumpkins for October
and this paper was perfect. I found it at our local
scrapbook store and I just loved it. Martha
Stewart's large spider punch was perfect too.



November is the month for giving thanks for what
our forefathers have done for us. I was amazed how cute
the little church turned out. I cut it out using
pattern paper and this is how it turned out. I loved it!
December is a month of joy and celebration for Christ's birth.
The trees are popped up with dimensionals by Therm-o-Web.
I used the Copic glitter pens to add some gold accent to the
trees.
I hope you have enjoyed seeing the calendar I made. Printing the calender on the computer allows me to print a 2911 calender and send to everyone who received our gift this year.
I am sorry for he large print for the first post I made with the calendar. I changed it about a half dozen times and it was correct before I hit publish post, but enlarged the print when I posted it. Nothing I did corrected it. Blogger does that at times and I certainly wish I knew how to fix it, but I don't. I hope it does not do the same time with this post.

Joan, these calendara are adorable! I do believe I will have to case your idea for next year and I never thought of using my cricut for this. I love the papers and the accents you used. Did you make the calendar books yourself or were they a pre-assembled book? Would love to know so Ican purchase them. I do not have a bind it all if you made them.

Every month is adorable. I love the Zutter stand and will want to order some of those the minute you have them in your store. Everyone I know will want to make a calendar so I had better get busy.
