Miss Anya - January

Hello happy crafters...I'm in a very cheery mood because I'm on holidays...yay  We have a break over Christmas/New Year with our business and this year we are taking 3 weeks off!!!  I think we really need the rest. This year has been sooooo full-on!

It's Friday and that means a new challenge for our Copic/Promarker group at The Outlawz. This week we have something a bit different...and a freebie for you if you're interested :)  This is our regular Anything Goes challenge, which we run at the end of each month, but for the next 12 months we have an OPTIONAL make a calendar page! At the end of the 12 months you will have a completed 2013 calendar to either keep for yourself, or give as a gift....all done in time to give as a Christmas pressie next year. The calendar file is a freebie...created by me in My Memories Suite. The file and instructions are available at our if you'd like to play with this optional twist, hop on over and grab the file :)

Here's my first page:

This is another version of the calendar file that I made in MMS. I've used the 'January' from an MMS digi kit and layered the DP background in the program. I've then printed this onto SU Very Vanilla CS. The digi kit has all the month papers in different colours so I've made my pages for each month and used different colour backgrounds. The file prints out as half an A4 page.

I've used a gorgeous Miss Anya from The Greeting Farm, which I stamped while staying with my BFF Helen...thanks Helen...waving :)  I'm ashamed to say she's been sitting in my drawer for a loooong time, with her sisters, waiting to be coloured up :(  The image panel was then matted with SU Merely Mustard and adhered to the background page with repositionable glue so that it can be removed and recycled...can't bear the thoughts of having to throw her away when the calendar expires!!

I intend to either make another calendar for the following year and transfer the images over to the new one, or remove them and use them on other projects :)  Once finished the calendar will either be punched and bound for hanging or made into a desk calendar style.

Fantastic calendar page, Lynne! Love the cute image and the creative design! I wish I had gotten to mine in time! I'll just have to double up another time! Happy New Year! Hugs!

What a great idea, Lynne! I would love to play along just for the fun of it if I can make the time. Your Anya is adorable and beautifully colored. I'm so glad that you're getting some rest and having a little fun while you're on holiday. I hope the New Year brings health, wealth and lots of crafty time for you.

(Sorry Lynne, that was me, I made two typos & just couldn't cope with leaving them there, lol!)
Look how cute you have made Miss Anya Lynne!!! Can't wait to see what you do with her sisters. Love your calendar & the fact that you are clever enough to already be considering recycling the images as they are definitely much too pretty to discard at the end of the year! Brilliant creation! Hugs :)
