Hey all! Welcome back to my corner!
Today I’m bringing you a purse-size calendar I created using the color inspiration (image below) and the papers and chipboard found in this month’s scrapbooking kit from Tres Jolie Kit Club.
Compared to other books/journals I’ve made, this one came together rather quickly! It doesn’t have a thick spine, so I couldn’t get carried away adding extra pages. Check out the video below to see how I did it.
Isn’t this a beautiful color board? I love the look of purple and gold together! Keep scrolling down, there are some photos of the finished calendar below!!
I wanted to add a little something extra to the cover, but I also wanted it to hold up to use, so I opted for some Beautiful Board from ReneaBouquets and some stars I made using my “Stars & Moons” Mould, some tabletop epoxy, alcohol ink and Magical Shakers for color, and some mica flakes. Between you and me, those stars came out fabulously!
I couldn’t believe how lucky I was that I just happened to have a book cover in just the right shade of yellow-gold with the perfect title for a calendar! I don’t know what the book originally was, but I loved being able to repurpose the cover.
The next six photos are close-ups of the inside cover, pocket pages, and the calendar cover; you can also see those custom paper clips I made.
This little book calendar is now ready for 2021 to get here! The calendar has some space to write on, and there are a few pockets for lists and receipts to be tucked in.
Thank you for joining us here at Tres Jolie, I hope you enjoyed this project and it gave you an idea of how you can interpret the color board and of what can be done with the papers found in this month’s scrapbooking kit!
Stay Crafty, Friends!
