Calendar time

Hi Folks, I hope it's a good Saturday for you so far:0) Here is my Craft Barn calendar make for this week,

Dylusions inks are just so scrumptious!! All those fabulous colours, I really love 'em:0) For a calendar or something that's going to be out a long time(hopefully) you need to protect the colour from fading so I embossed mine with clear embossing powder, that should do the trick! My calendar is on a Spellbinders die, Marvellous Squares, I just love the edges of this one and of course Dyan Reaveley's Stamps need no introduction. All backed by a magnetic sheet and bingo this will stick to anything metal, Christmas stocking filler anyone??
Have a fabulous weekend my friends, lovely to see you, hugs Gay xx

I love the combo of funky stamp design, (sorry I haven't heard of this designer before!), and classical type die cut! Clever calendar, lovely colours! Bravo!

Gorgeous, bright calendar Gay. The colours are lovely and really think the edge finished it off nicely.

Perfect stocking filler l'd say.

Have a good weekend xxx

Love this gorgeous project Gay,the colour choices are quite beautiful.xxx

Sasha said...

Love it, Gay! Those Dylusions do look fabulous. I am very tempted to treat myself to some, but wondering if they would look as good as your fabulous creations. Also, would they work on white card? Such a great idea to protect them with clear embossing, too.
Have a lovely weekend x
