JustRite Calendar Challenge




I have been having fun with the JustRite Inspiration Challenges, and this week was for a calendar. The challenge at Gingersnaps was to use numbers. I decided to make a large interchangeable calendar for my scrap room. I started out with foam core board and covered it in fabric. I made the dates for the calendar as push pins, so they can be rearranged for each month or year. The month is also attached with pushpins, so it can be changed as well. For my lettering, I used the JustRite Times New Roman 95 point. I also stamped the decorative circles around my dates, and days of the week using designs from the Damask Borders monogram kit, and the Curlz Monogram kit. Each "blossom" for the dates, were cut using Spellbinders and a scallop circle punch, and were layered with dimensionals to give some height. The numbers were cut out using Quickutz Sopisticate.
