something old, something new

Hello!  Yay, I made 2 things in the past couple days!  One was something that's actually been sitting on my crafty table for a while like a month and I had to gently blow the dust off to finish it up.  I had all the pieces cut down to size and the images all colored up but I wasn't very motivateed to finish the project.

But I finally finished up this large calendar.  I was able to put 3 of Sister Stamps pandas (Ling Ling, Shin Shin & Po) on it.  That is my something old project, not because it's been sitting around for so long but because I've made these kinds of calendars before.

Here's my new project.  It's a 2 year pocket calendar that I found on this site.  The calendars come with a plain white cover and you can decorate it.  I decided to use washi paper since it's thin.  I had a leftover Shin Shin already colored and then added Ling Ling too.  I stamped part of the sentiment using Lawn Fawn's Riley's ABCs and added their hello die.

You can also put the calendar into a clear vinyl cover.  It's like a checkbook cover.  There isn't that much wiggle room with the vinyl cover so that's why I kept everything thin and flat.  I think these would make cute little gifts plus there's 2 years worth of months so it's pretty practical.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Cute! Nice matching bamboo washi paper! At least it's still 2014 despite the calendar project sitting around... And even better, a calendar for 2 years!

I enjoyed seeing both of your calendar projects. Since I have several checkbook covers leftover from years ago, I think I will follow your lead and turn them into calendars. I like the background you chose for the pandas. Thanks for the inspirational craft projects.
