Birthday and Anniversary Calendar

I'm the most unorganized person I know! Sometimes I make a card for someone, for some occasion and I can't remember where I put it. I made these perpetual calendars for people who like to give cards to celebrate birthdays or anniversaries and have the cards in the same pocket as the listed birthday. I adhered each calendar to CTMH patterned paper and to a white envelope large enough to hold cards and envelopes. I had this idea a couple of years ago and posted photos of some I sold at another craft fair in 2012.

I used this Doodle Pantry digi set called "Calendar Minis."

Calendar Minis

This stamp set is perfect for any project that needs an image for every month!

Here's the cover and first six pages.If the papers are current, I'll give you their name and link. The cover has Skylark paper and a title I typed, then cut out with Spellbinder's dies. A stacked flower and three butterflies with bronze glitter gel were the finishing touches:

Each month's name is stamped with a very old CTMH stamp set.

February has paper from the beautiful CTMH Ivy Lane paper packet.

April's bunny images perfectly matched the CTMH Balloon Ride paper.

I hope that the first six envelopes give you an idea of this project. I definitely need to make one for myself so my cards will be more organized! Thank you for visiting.
