Busy Making Calendars
I have decided to make quite a few Christmas gifts this year and this is the calendar which I made for Alex to give to his teacher. It does stand up but I couldn't get a good photo of it like that! I have also made some more for family and I'll post a pic of them if the weather ever brightens up enough to take a photo.
My EK Sucess Retro punches arrived yesterday, excellent service as I only ordered them on Tuesday evening. Can't wait to have a go with them.Supplies
Stamps: Magnolia - School Collection 08
Tools: Pro Markers, Glossy Accents, SU Ribbon, Martha Stewart Punch, Bind It All, Calendar from Rymans
DP: K + Co
