Nothing But Time

Now that school has started up again today, the house is much quieter with just Knock-Out and me at home. I'm sitting here waiting for my Copics to be delivered, and not very patiently mind you. Engineer laughed at me when I told him I'd been dreaming about these markers, literally.

While I wait, I'll share a project I made last month. I saw this calendar on Cambria Turnbow's blog and knew that CTMH's January Stamp of the Month would be perfect for it. I ended up making four of them, two for the boys teachers, one for a Secret Santa exchange, and one for me...because after all that work, I wanted something for myself. I'm selfish that way.

This did go together pretty quickly, once all the pieces were cut out. I used my Cricut to cut the numbers and the curvy thingy...does anyone know what those things are called? I did make mine bigger than hers, just to accommodate the size of the stamps. And for those of you wondering, the stamp set is created to make calendars of any year, not just 2009. The base is a 12 x 7.5 piece of Colonial White cardstock. Folded over, it makes four 6 x 7.5 pages for your calendar. I put all my pieces on the Chocolate cardstock together first. When I attached the Chocolate base to the Colonial White piece, I only taped the top and the sides, leaving the bottom opened. This was how Cambria did hers and I just followed...I'm good at following others.
