Christmas gifts 2

Read my ABOVE post about where these CD calendar hand crafted gifts came from.
These are the 3rd, 4th, and 5th (and last) that I made.

Third: Basic Grey printed paper color scheme randomly pink and burgandy. The flower though would alternate between Sweet Blush and Scarlet Jewel and would move to different places around the mini-calendar so there wasn't too much bulk in one place. I also inked all the pages with Tye Die Duo.

Four: My favorite of all of them. Versamark damask (not PTI) on a three color scheme that alternated. Then, mini-damask Ranger Antique Linen in the center of each mini calendar. Perfect!!

Five: The last was kind of a "month specific" calendar. Each month had a printed paper specific to that month with a die cut image that matched. The July month, shown here, makes that easy to understand. (Not PTI paper or dies and I have had that paper now for about 8 years! I have only used bits and pieces of it... so glad that I finally used a good bit of it for a great reason!)

Enjoy!
