DIY 2019 Calendar with Angela

Hello dear BoBunny friends and happy 2019! It's Angela here, super excited to be with you for another year long! Yay!
Here is my first project, something I make every year, a DIY calendar using Banner Year collection.


Here is how the calendar looks like closed. It is embellished using a few die cuts from the Noteworthy Banner Year pack and a few roses I fussy cut from the December paper. The numbers I used for the year 2019 are from another BoBunny collection, Land of Wonder in a dark red that perfectly matches the colors of the flowers.


The calendar is a desk calendar, so it is self standing. I can placed it directly on the desk for an easy and quick look to help me staying organized.
As you can see in the picture, the pages of the months are folded to create a pocket. Inside it, I can place whatever I need to remember like notes, bills to pay or even a pen.

The other half of the paper has many beautiful images, perfect to fussy cut and also note cards and quotes. I cut out all that inspired me the most and put everything in the pocket of the related month.    


The calendar has no numbers. You can write them with a pen or a marker or stamp them. In my case, I stamped the numbers with an old number stamp set I had in my stash. The ink pads I used are the two Color Wheel ink pads by Vicki Boutin, the warm set and the cool set. For each month I stamped the numbers in the same color of the month color.


For example, March main color of the paper is green and I stamped the numbers in green, April main color is yellow and I stamped the numbers in yellow and so on.


I love this collection for the vintage style that reminds me to old prints and postcards.


Here are a few others pics of the calendar


July is my preferred month for sure, followed by October dressed in black and orange.


I think the calendar come out so charming that it would be a perfect gift for a friend too.

That's all for today, I hope you liked the project, just an idea on how to use this gorgeous old styled collection. Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you soon.
