Hello everyone!! I'm here today to share a simple calendar page with you and all of my friends over at SHE'S A SASSY LADY . (If you remember, I did a post over there just last week because I goofed and thought my Thursday was last week! It actually worked out best for Sheila that way so I offered to share another project this week!) Thank you, Sheila for being so gracious and I'm so glad I could help! :-)
If you have seen any of my previous posts, you probably know that I do a different calendar page each month to showcase on my fridge and then add it to my scrapbook in front of all the pics I took that month. This month, I decided to show how you can make a calendar grid if you don't have the Designer's Calendar cartridge. Here is my finished page:
Let's break it down a bit.
To make my grid, I used my Gypsy, (forgot to take a pic of my screen), and lined up 35 - 1.5"squares to form my calendar. The squares I used are from Art Philosophy because I wanted squares with a little scallop on the corners but any square will work. After the cut, I trimmed the extra off the edges.
The 35 little squares can be saved for another project.
Then I used the Father's Day seasonal cartridge and my Cricut markers to make my icon to designate Father's Day on my calendar. I chose to just use the markers and not cut it. I just cut around the outside with my scissors.
I then traced over the sentiment with my black gel pen.
Then, I actually used 4 of those little squares to stamp my title on - I used the Urban Alphabet stamp set from CTMH. Then I used CTMH's Liquid Glass to give the letters a shiny appearance.
I punched holes in the squares and threaded twine through to hang then across the page. The squares themselves are mounted with pop dots so they won't slide around.
Here are a few more close-ups of the squares and the twine "clothesline".
I also used Liquid Glass to adhere the twine to the page.
I added Distress Stickles throughout the grid to give a little pop of color.
Here is the Father's Day icon in place.
The background paper is from DVWV's Heirloom stack - (I love this stack!)

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed today's post!
Now, go create something beautiful!!
