January Calendar: Dreamy Skaters…

 This is a class I offered in January and I’m just getting around to posting it. Back in January when all calendars were on sale, I purchased some with this stamping project in mind. I had the hangers and decided to use them on this continuing calendar class. Every month we make the nexy two month’s calendars. Each calendar shares one sheet of card stock; one month appears on the front and another month appears on the back.  Here’s January’s calendar.

Depending on the size of the calendar you are using you need to cut all your papers accordingly . I my case I trimmed my calendar  to 5″ x 7″ and planned all my layers around that measurement. Since I was hanging my calendar pages on a hanger, I wasn’t constricted to a frame size.


I stamped the house and snowflakes in VersaMark, covered them with white embossing powder and heated them.


Then I tore the strip of Whisper White to resemble a snow covered hill.


I adhered the Whisper White to the Baja Breeze.


Using the Two Way Glue I dabbed streaks on the hill and sprinkled with Dazzling Diamonds.


After stamping the skaters on a scrap piece of Whisper White I cut them out and I placed them on the hill using Dimensionals.

I then stamped the deer  directly onto the hill.


I Photo cut two corners out of Baja Breeze and assembled the calendar as shown.
