Birthday Calendar



Wow! I just finished this project. I was afraid I wouldn't get it finished in time to link it to the City Crafter blog. The challenge this week was to use some kind of mail element (letter, stamp...) and at least one color from the inspiration picture. Green and lavender stood out for me. This birthday calendar started out as a blank Maya Road chipboard book.
I painted it cream all over and added 3 pages. Then I started adding cute silhouettes and vintage images having to do with mail.
I used a junior ecru paper pad to create the pages to write birthdays on. The silhouettes are from Stampin Up and Magenta Style.
I used quite a few Crafty Secrets stamps and the labels on the side are made from the Label #4 die from Papertrey Ink.
I'm so happy with how it turned out! It feels so nice and solid and so pretty to flip through. I can't wait to write my family's birthdays on the pages. Hope you've had a great weekend!
