All-Day Craftathon: Calendar Card Album

Photo: Victoria Wilcox

This was voted the favourite project at my All-Day Craftathon. But it was quite fiddly to make, especially with so many people and so many different coloured ink pads. 

The project is a calendar card album. Inside the chipboard covers there are 12 paper bags, with a blank calendar on the front of each one, for each month of the year. Fill in the calendar with people’s birthdays, then pop a card into the bag so that you have one ready when the time comes. 

It closes with a piece of baker’s twine wrapped around a circle on the back, so that the cards don’t fall out of the pockets. 

The trees represent the four seasons of the year, which is why they use so many different inks. I used the new Chalk ink for the spring blossom, as this ink sits on top of the cardstock without soaking in and muddying the colours. I couldn’t stamp on white because the snow wouldn’t show up!
