I loved the Birthday Month flower stamp/die sets, but I didn’t necessarily want to have just flowers on my calendar pages. There are several other stamp/die sets available as well – In the Kitchen, Garden Gnomes, Bee Sweet, Woodlands, as well as others. I interspersed some of them throughout my calendar.
The January, February, May and August pages were made with the non-flower sets, while the March, April, June and July pages used the appropriate flower for the month. I stamped, colored, and die-cut the images for each month.
After I put the die-cut images onto the white panels, I realized that they needed to be “anchored” by something. So I die-cut a strip of grass, using the Spring Grass die. I cut 12 of these strips of grass, one for each page. This also added continuity throughout the calendar. This photo was taken before I sponged a bit of darker green around the edges.
I glued the grass strips along the bottom of the white panels and then built my scenes. I chose which of the icons I wanted for each month and applied them on the appropriate dates.
