Christmas Calendars 2014

Hello....I'm a bit slow getting these blogged!  These are the Christmas 2014 gifts I made for a few of my friends....and a card I didn't blog with the others :)

The calendar is a cut file that was created in collaboration with my friend Bett, from Perth.  Bett made the base file for the stand and then I messed with it some to get it how I wanted.  I'm very good at messing with things lol  The blocks are cut files from the Silhouette store, that go with one of their Christmas calendar files.  The file comes with the mats, fancy shapes and numbers....saved me a LOT of designing work creating them from scratch!

The first calendar was made for my lovely friend her favourite colours of course :)

This one was made as a thank you for Bett, for her help with the cut file :)

Last but not least is this one...made for a work colleague

And here's the card......the inspiration for this came from one of my Pinterest finds

The calendars have all been made from SU cardstock and then decorated with various DP.  Old St Nick is a veeeeery old PSX stamp from my original attempt at stamping many moons ago....I was a dismal failure back then lol  Helen's 3D flower is made in SU Cherry Cobbler from a Lettering Delights cut file.  And the I Believe sign is a cut file from the Silhouette store.

Swirly side embellishments are swirly corners from Birds Cards.

I was SOOOO happy with how these turned out.  Maybe I'm not so rusty after all :)  My trusty Maxx made short work of all the cutting and it was lots of fun decorating these calendars.  I'll be making more for sure.  I'm thinking they'd be great for birthdays, mother's day, etc.

Thanks for looking..............have a wonderful day :)

They all look AMAZING, Lynne! I love my pretty blue one. ♥♥♥ It's fabulous how you got a completely different look for each calendar. Thank you for the awesome gift & for the inspiration! xo

These are wonderful! Is there any way I could get a template or cut file to make these myself?
