2011 Calendar

I think I shared the story before of the friend I had that gave me a great, handmade calendar. Once the year ended, I really missed my calendar so I started making my own. This year I decided to make mine 5x8. It will be bound on the 5" side using my Cinch Bindery Tool. So far, I've completed January, October and December. Here's a peek...

And to do ALL of this, I turned to my Gazelle. The calendar pages themselves were created in the Funtime Version 3 software. There's actually a calendar template in there so I opened it and tweaked it to fit my needs. Then I simply removed my blade, dropped in my 0.8 Copic Multiliner (black) and let the Gazelle do all the work for me. Once it was "drawn" I returned the blade to the holder and cut it out. It was really that simple!!

For my pages, I simply chose digital designs that fit what month I was working on. I did add one of the new Spellbinders 2010 Snowflake Pendants. I LOVE these flakes!!! As for my month titles, I used one of the 200 or so fonts in my Funtime Version 3 software!!!

You can see that my pages have already been punched with the Cinch. As soon as I have the other months finished up I'll bind it all together! If you have any questions regarding the Gazelle please feel free to email me anytime at katie@scrap-mart.com. I'll be back Monday with a fun spirit wear project!
