January Calendar

I wanted to make a special calendar this year and it took me a while to decide which images that I wanted to use. Then I remembered that I have these beautiful Fairies form Michelle Perkett Studio, and that was it. What better way to welcome the New Year than with Michelle's Enchanted Slumber Fairy. Isn't she lovely? I thought that I should post my January Calendar before the month is over. :)
This wonderful frame is from Taylored Expressions. I am not sure whether I want to stain it of paint it, so for now it is bare wood. It works so well for my calendar.

I cut the main color, Baja Breeze at 8 1/"2 x 6" and scored the top at 7" and added eyelets to make the top edge stronger for the binder rings and then I just started creating.
The calendars are from Papertrey Ink. I used Calendar Basics stamp set which is good for eleven years :) and the Coordinating Pre-Printed Mini Calendar pages.

Card Recipe:
Stamp: Enchanted Slumber Fairy Digi Stamp and Pre-Printed Mini Calendar Pages
Ink: Antique Linen
Paper: Baja Breeze, Georgia Pacific White and Fairy Flora designer paper from Prima Marketing Inc.
Accessories: Copic Markers, Spica Glitter Pens, Start Dust Gelly Roll Pen, Swarovski Crystal Rhinestones. Gold Satin and Pink Taffeta ribbon. Fiskars border punch and Fairy Tale paper roses. Stampin Dimensionals.

Thank you so much for visiting. I hope you day is filled with joy and blessings.
