2020 Table Calendar

Hello, crafty friends!!

I'm so happy today because I can share with you my new project made using the new BoBunny collection Time & Place!! I created a Table Calendar... My idea is: plan your future, without forgetting your past!
Let me show it to you!

The calendar is similar to an album. But the front cover shorter than the back cover. So you can see "half calendar" inside it. And, you will see, there is a surprise too!!

For the cover I chose the June paper of the collection: the flowers on this cardstock are so beautiful and the mix of color is great!!
I chose also some other elements by Noteworthy and Layered Chipboard Stickers.

In the Sticker set of this collection you can find a wonderful alphabet with a lot of letters!! I used it a lot!!! Here, for the sentiment on the cover, and inside the calendar too!

When you open the structure, on the left you can find 4 golden angles where you can fix the calendar of the month (I started this project with January, of course!!!
Under it there is a notebook with five sections, one for every week of the month.

For the sections of the notebook I used the Violet Double Dots Cardstock and some white papers too. I had a lot of fun with the coptic binding (I used the WRMK Book Binding Guide: great help if you love the coptic!!!)

On the right you can find the January bigger calendar. And this is the surprise.... Plan the future, without forgetting the past... So, in the back of the calendar, you can find a mini LO, with the best picture of January 2019...

Here is it:

Clean and Simple layout... Only to remember a wonderful moment I lived.

Noteworthy, Washi Tape, Stickers and Layered Chipboard : really a wonderful collection!!

So you can choose if you want to keep the LO or the calendar on the front! I chose to put the picture on the right side of the LO, so I can see it also when the cover is closed.

Birthday Calendar with Time & Place

Hello BoBunny fans!

Emmy here today sharing my first post for November. In the Netherlands we have something called a Birthday Calendar - it looks like the usual calendar, only there are no days of the week, so you can re-use it year after year. I thought the wonderful Time and Place collection from BoBunny would be perfect for it!

I create the base for each month, I cut off the middle parts of the pattern papers, inked their edges and adhered them on slightly larger panels of Double Dot Cardstock.

To cover the days of the week on each page I cut out banner stripes from silver and gold metallic washi tape.

To decorate my calendar I used fussy cut embellishments from different pattern papers. I used glitter gel pens to write the dates. To memorise a special day (New Year's Day, Birthday, Halloween, etc.) I used special squares from the 12" pattern papers.

I hope I managed to inspire you today!

Have a great week!

DIY Pocket Calendars with Angela

Hello friends!

Angela here. Today I am sharing my very first project made using the new BoBunny Time & Place collection. I created three pocket calendars and if you'd like to see how to make them, there is a video too!


These pocket calendars will be a gift to give to my friends for Christmas. Time & Place collection inspired me so many other projects and DIY to make. For example, you could make a big calendar to hung up or a teeny one, smaller than the one I am showing you, using Time & Place stamps.


To create these, I started stamping the monthly calendar on 12 pieces of 4 x 4 inches white paper.
For extra fun, I stamped each month in a different color using Vicki Boutin Color Wheel inks


To hold in place the calendar I used the colorful brads that are in the collection, two for each calendar.
I also wrapped washi tape around the papers for making the calendar sturdier and to embellish it, too.


The calendars have a hard cover made of cardboard wrapped in DoubleDot Vintage cardstock. The measures of the cardboard are 2 pieces of 4,25 x 4,25 inch and 1 piece of 0,50 x 4,25 inch.


For the closure I made two versions. One has got a brad and a piece of twine to wrap around the brad and the other has an elastic instead. 


This is how the calendar looks like when it is open. I adhered a journaling card to write a note to my friend.


I embellished also the cover, playing with Distress Oxide and bits and pieces from Time & Place collection. It carries such gorgeous flowers!!


Here is a close-up of the closure made with a beautiful flower brad and the elastic. I was lucky enough to find in my stash an elastic that perfectly match the color of the paper.


VoilĂ ! This is all for today. I hope you liked my pocket calendar idea and hopefully my friend too.


Thank you so much for stopping by. I'll see you soon!
