I have to say... I LOVE MY 1st 2010 calendar!!!
This is my one and only EXPENSIVE calendar 2010. I used most of my favourite pattern papers for this calendar and all acid free papers. So i think, it is impossible for me to come out with 2 similar calendar this year :) Well, there is no stamping, except the month. I selected 12 bible verses, layout nicely and printed at the back of each month :) It took me a week to complete this design. From research (bible verse) to sketches to idea.
Due to all the papers are in different "mood", so it is not easy to keep this "design" consistent. In order to have consistency, i remain tear edge and stitches at the back of each month. And the layout are repeated every 2 months :)
OK! I don't think i can write out the recipe cause more of the papers are gone :)
Paper: Cosmo Cricket: Earth Love: Element, repeat.
Card Stocks: SU: Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip
