February Calendar!!

Good morning and happy February!! I am very much enjoying making these monthly scrapbook type calendars. I staple them to my wall in my craft room, and then when the month is over, I add them to my scrapbook. Here are all the lovely details on this February calendar:

  • Brown cardstock 12" x 12" from This & That "Graceful" Girl collection (Echo Park)
  • Pink dotted cardstock 11 3/4" x 11 3/4" from This & That "Graceful" Girl collection (Echo Park)
  • DESIGNER'S CALENDAR Cricut cartridge:
    • Grid p. 47 cut @ 7" with shadow backing
    • February cut @ 3" and matted with pink cardstock cut @ 5 3/4" x 2 7/8"
    • Day abbreviations cut @ 1"
    • Day numbers cut with Shadow ONLY @ 1"
  • CREATE A CRITTER Cricut cartridge:
    • Heart Tree p. 37 cut @ 3 1/2" with shadow
    • Bee p 31 cut @ 2 1/2" with shadow
    • Hearts p. 37 cut in various sizes
  • DOODLECHARMS Cricut cartridge:
    • Sunshine p. 96 cut @ 1 3/4" with shadow
  • EVERY DAY PAPER DOLLS Cricut cartridge:
    • Grass p. 49 cut @ 5" WIDE using Cricut Craft Room
  • PAPER DOLL DRESS UP Cricut cartridge:
    • Fence p. 78 cut @ 5" WIDE using Cricut Craft Room
  • Hobby Lobby Heart punch also used for some of the hearts
  • Everything inked with Tim Holtz Tea Dye distress ink
  • Foam tape used to adhere tree, bee, and sunshine for dimension
  • Recollections rhinestones and silver pearls added to FEBRUARY and Sun Rays
  • Twine from The Twinery
  • Heart rhinestones added to bee's antennas
  • Buttons from stash
I have several zippies (zip lock bags) filled with cuts such as fences, grasses, clouds, suns, etc. These are some items I use a LOT and just cut them out on 12x12 cardstock at a time. I put a ticket in the zippie and write on the back the page number, Cricut cartridge, and size of cut.

And what in the WORLD did we do before FOAM TAPE? Oh my gosh! So much easier than using pop dots and foam squares that are always too small or too big. 

Thanks for stopping by today guys! Did you see last month's calendar? Here's a link to that:
