... Morning! I'm here with my weekly Seven Hills Craft blog post. Today, instead of a card, I've got a calendar page to share with you. A few years ago I made a desk calendar for me, and family, from scratch. I wanted to do the same last year, but ran out of time. So, I purchased an A4 hanging calandar with a blank space over the month. I've been decorating my calendar all year with stamps, stencils and dies from my stash. Today, I thought I'd share my page for June:
Stamps: Concord & 9th - Yay for Birthdays
Inks: Gina K - Dusty Rose, Wild Dandelion, Sweet Mango, Passionate Pink
Accessories: A4 Wire Bound 2021 Blank Calender; Black Marker Pen
I'm submitting this page to Love to Craft Challenge Blog - LTCCB#59 where it's Anything Goes.
I've masked off the details of the month - mostly it's birthdays as I seem to have loads this month!! And that's the reason for the decoration too - it was my 61st birthday on 2 June, so I thought I'd celebrate everyday when I look at the calendar!! 😉
All the stamps come from Concord & 9th's Yay for Birthdays stamp set. I used each of the solid balloon images with a different coloured ink to create the arch of balloons. Under that I stamped the two-step word 'Yay' in pink and yellow, getting a bonus orange where the dots overlap. I used a bright pink ink for the word 'birthday'. To finish the page, I added balloon strings and the word 'my' with a fine black marker pen. It makes me happy every time I look at the page.
I have already purchased my 2022 calendar and will be decorating it soon. At the moment, I tend to decorate each month as I get to it!!
That's all for now - see you again soon.
