The project today I'm showing is a gift for my brother in law, a calendar and a bookmark. I think he'll like it! I used a mix of papers from Cosmo Cricket 'The Boyfriend' to cover some chipboard and stamped on them in Tim Holtz's large number stamp-I love how big some of his stamps are, perfect for large areas. Feels kinda nice have a big wood mounted stamp in your hands:) I also used my label maker on the front of the calendar. Not sure the brand of the star tape is, picked it up with some of others at a craft show a coupla years now. I used the bind it all machine for the binding and added some twine too. The template for the calendar can be found in my other post here.
Here's a close-up of the bookmark. The skull is also a Tim Holtz stamp. Around the edges of both of the calendar and bookmark I used distress inks and then used the Tim Holtz distressing tool.
Here's a side view of the calendar:~
I'm going to enter this over at Stampin For The Weekend who want to see calendar creations. I just need to make myself one now before the New Year comes along:) It also fits quite nicely with the Secret Crafter's Challenge of last minute gifts. That's it from me! Thanks for popping by and for any comments you might leave, they really mean a lot:) Keep warm xxx
