2009 Calendar with Tilda- FEBRUARY

First of all, I want to wish you all a very happy and prosperous New Year!!!

One more thing before I start with the today's post.. This is a shout out to Bev!! Since Bev does not have a blog and leaves comments for me under "anonymous", there is no other way for me to contact her.. Bev, I am still waiting for you to email me your address for the Blog Candy that you have won!!

Starting January 4th, I am going to have a series of classes for a 2009 Calendar at Cranberry Hill Mercantile. At each class we will make pages for two months. At the first class we will make pages for January and February, at the second class pages for March and April, and so on.. At the last class we will make the cover and bind the pages together..

Even though these pages are intended to be used as a calendar, at the class you will have an option to make them into the cards..

I started with February and still working on the pages for the month of January.

The pages measure 6" x 6".

I created the calendar in Word document and printed it on pink cardstock. "February" was stamped in red ink, the stamp is from Inkadinkado. The corners on both pages are the Cuttlebug die cuts. All the hearts on these pages were hand drawn and hand cut out. Tilda was stamped on Coconut Swirl Bazzil cardstock, colored with Copic markers to compliment the colors of the paper and then cut out.

Since these pages will be a part of the calendar, I did not add any dimension.. No dew drops, no brads, no ribbons, not even pop up dots.. That was kind of challenging..

Don't you think these pages would make a great Valentine's Day card? With the first page being a front of the card and the calendar inside??

This class is scheduled for:

Sunday, January 4th, 2 pm to 5 pm
Wednesday, January 7th, 12 pm to 3 pm

To sign up for the "Tilda Calendar 2009 - January and February" class, please call Cranberry Hill Mercantile at 408-736-9151.

Candy said...

Happy New Year, Irina!

I can tell already this is going to be a fantastic calendar!! You may want to change your blog to say 2009 though! LOL

Would we as blog readers be able to play along with you as you make the pages or is that not allowed?

It will make a beautiful Valentine card as well.

Hi Candy,

I did change it to 2009, thanks!! :)

Of course everyone is welcome to play along, you can even send me the links or email the photos of your calendars and I will post them on my blog. That is a GREAT IDEA!!

:) Irina
