PPA #23 Cottage Wall Calendar


Here's a desk calendar I made for my mom for Christmas that would qualify for the PPA#23 challenge, Anything But a Card here.

I covered chipboard squares with the Cottage Wall DSP. I colored the "enjoy" stamp from Enjoy Every Moment with Old Olive, Orchid Opulence and Rich Razzleberry markers. I stamped and punched out the little flower and added an Old Olive brad to the center. "Life" was stamped in Rich Razzleberry then punched out with the 3/4 inch circle punch which was layered on an Old Olive piece punched out with the 1 inch circle punch. The calendar pages are held together with gold brads and matted on some Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry card stock. And the chipboard is held together with pieces of the 1/2 inch Rich Razzleberry polka dot grosgrain ribbon.
Here's my recipe:
Stamps: Enjoy Every Moment
Papers: Whisper white, Old Olive, Orchid Opulence, Rich Razzleberry, Cottage Wall DSP
Inks: Old Olive, Orchid Opulence and Rich Razzleberry markers, Rich Razzleberry stamp pad
Accessories: 1/2 inch Rich Razzleberry polka dot grosgrain ribbon, Old Olive brad, gold brad, 3/4 inch circle punch, 1 inch circle punch, Crop-a-dile, chipboard coaster squares
