Tuesday's {Tip} 2011 Calendar using ODBD Stamps!

Well, today my calendar project is being featured on the Our Daily Bread Designs blog. I thought I would share it here with my readers also. The instructions are in the paragraph below followed by lots of images and a complete supply list with links!

One thing I love about Our Daily Bread Designs stamps is that there are images for every single month of the year! Since that's the case, I thought I would make a 2011 calendar for fun.

To make my calendar, first I cut twelve 4 ¼” x 3 ½” pieces of white cardstock. These pieces will mat each month. I then printed out a 2011 calendar on the same white cardstock. You can find many 2011 calendars in my post here. :) Next, I trimmed each month to 1 7/8” square. Then I had to decide on papers to use. I decided to use Webster's Pages papers because I had papers for each season, and they also had designs that worked well with each month. Then the fun began! I decorated each month using various papers, embellishments, and stamps. I created a mat for each month using the same Spellbinders lacey squares die. Here is how January through June turned out:And here you can see July through December:
I used a 3x3 Vertical Frame that I got from How Do You Glue. And here are some close-up images. (Note: You can see the entire frame in the October photo below.) 3x3 Vertical Stand: How Do You Glue
Papers: Paper Trey Ink white cs (for base pages); Webster's Pages pp; Memory Box thistle, dill, wassail, lavender, and mocha cs
Our Daily Bread Designs Stamps: Peace & Joy, Bless this Home, Love One Another, Brocade Borders, The Lord Has Risen, The Cross of Christ, Mother’s Day, Father's Day, Happy Birthday, Fishers of Men, Fleur de Lis Borders, Harvest Blessings, Randi's Song, The Living Bread, Blessed Christmas
Tim Holtz Distress Inks: old paper, aged mahogany, peeled paint, tattered rose, dusty concord, vintage photo, faded jeans, pumice stone, forest moss, scattered straw, wild honey, and barn door
Stamp Inks (other): Adirondack espresso
Embellishments: Paper Trey Ink rustic twine and buttons; Spellbinders lacey squares die; Chatterbox wooden brad; Bazzill parakeet and white tulle; Stickles diamond, cotton candy, Christmas red, baby blue, and lavender; Distress Stickles scattered straw; Hero Arts pearls and flowers; misc. baker's twine

The stamp sets I used for each month were (click on the set name to look at the set in the ODBD store):

January: ODBD Peace & Joy and Bless this Home
February: ODBD Love One Another
March: ODBD Brocade Borders
April: ODBD The Lord Has Risen and the Cross of Christ
May: ODBD Happy Mother’s Day and Happy Birthday

September: ODBD Harvest Blessings

I hope you will give this calendar a try. It was a lot of fun, and it was wonderful to use so many of my ODBD stamp sets for one project!

And if you have made it throught the post this far, then you will be excited to know that Kelley at ODBD will be running a Free Shipping Special for Thanksgiving weekend as a thank you to her customers.
