Calendar 2015

Every year one of my first projects of January is to make this flip calendar.  This year I didn't get to them quite as quickly as I should have but life gets in the way sometimes.  I print out my 12 month calendar, choose designer paper - in this case I use papers from an old DCWV paper pack from Archivers that I love and wish you could still get.  Stamped my trees (old old set from SU) on white cs, colored and punched with my circle punch (glad I kept my punches) then choose a Spellbinders die that the circle would fit on and glued that on the black.  The sentiment is perfect for this type of project as it had all four seasons so I use it quite often (it is from TAC which is no longer in business).   Mount it all on a half sheet of black cs, using both sides.  Tie with black/white ribbon and when the first 6 months are completed untie ribbon, flip and retie the ribbon so the last six months are on the outside.
I sent two of these to my chemo buddies this week as well as one to my daughter for her desk at work, every year she always asks me if I am going to make the calendars again this year.  Well the answer is "of course"
