2009 Calendar with Tilda- MARCH

My Birthday Blog Candy ends tomorrow night at around 9 pm PST. If you did not enter yet, click here to go to the post with the details on how to enter.

Today I made March pages for my "2009 Tilda Calendar" series of classes at Cranberry Hill Mercantile. In this class we will make March and April pages, but I am still waiting for the Easter images to make the pages for the April.

This class is scheduled for:

Sunday, January 11th, 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm
Wednesday, January 14th, 12:00 pm to 3:00 pm

To sign up for the class, please call Cranberry Hill Mercantile at 408-736-9151.

Oh, and I wanted to mention that even if you have missed the "January/February" class, you may still join the club!! I have a few kits available for purchase!!

You probably noticed that there is a "lip" on the side of my pages. I cut cardstock for the base of the pages at 6" x 6 1/2" and the printed paper at 5 3/4" x 5 3/4". The half an inch on the side will be used to bind the calendar together. My calendar will be a "desktop" style and therefore the extra cardstock is on the sides. If you would like your calendar to hang on the wall then you will turn the layers to have the extra cardstock on the bottom and the top of the pages. I hope this makes sense..

Tilda was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and colored with Copic Markers. Her dress was paper pieced, LOVE IT!! Both circles were cut and embossed with Nestabilites. I then used the circle Nestabilites as a stencil and sponged green and yellow ink around Tilda. Scalloped edges on the border were done with Fiskars border punch. I printed the calendar on the printed paper and then added some cut out flowers. Used the White Inksenktials Gel Pen for highlights on Tilda and to make the dots on all of the scallops. And, OF COURSE, there are stickles on Tilda's wings, wind swirls, and on all of the flowers.

All supplies used to make these pages are available at Cranberry Hill Mercantile. Please give the store a call during business hours at 408-736-9151 to place your order and it will be shipped to you.
