My Calendar Blog Hop

Welcome to the My Calendar Blog Hop!  

If you are looking for the FROSTED DESIGNS FALL BLOG HOP - go HERE.

In this hop, you will find several kinds of calendars that are NOT you typical "hang on the wall" calendars.  I plan on using mine to keep me on track for my design team and blog hop schedules!

Here is a complete list of blogs in the hop just in case you get lost along the way (or find me first)!

Now on to my project::

I made a fun desk calendar.  Each month is on a separate page.  I need to see the entire month at a glance so this words well for me.  I am on 4 design teams and will color code them to highlight each square.  Blog hops will have a separate color.  I have a detailed journal with ideas, projects and status information that would NEVER fit onto any calendar :)
I started with this shape from Lacy Labels and sized it to 5 inches.  I cut it out of chipboard using multi-cut 3 times.

I used paper from this 8x8 Colorful Life paper pad from DCWV.

I found a 2013 calendar online and printed it out on white cardstock.  I trimmed each month into its own square.

I thought I would use these scalloped squares to mount the calendar squares on, but they ended up being too square and there was not enough room for the binding.  I scrapped that idea and cut my own with my paper cutter.

I did use the 2013 from Cricut Alphabet sized to 1.35 inches.  I cut the letters out of gold shimmer cardstock.

I used these 3D flowers from Art Philosophy sized from 3.29 to 4 inches.  I cut them out of pink shimmer cardstock.

I used my tweezers to roll the flowers from the smallest end to the center and used liquid adhesive to glue the flower together.

I used my Bind-It-All to punch the holes and attach the calendar pages.  I added some butterflies in gold and pink to match the paper I used.  I used a Stampin' Up cut and embossing folder for them.
Thank you for stopping by today!!  I hope I inspired you to create your own one of a kind calendar!!!

Your next stop in the hop is the fabulous KARON!
