This is my latest Fiskarettes DT project which I can post here, now that it's appeared on the Fiskarettes UK Facebook page.
It made me smile when someone made the sarcastic comment about my project on the Facebook page, "Pen, diary or calendar suffices???". It's a bit like telling a knitter "Why bother to knit a jumper when you can wear a bin liner". She obviously has never heard the saying....
"If you can't say something nice,
then don't say nothin' at all."
Anyway, there are lots of lovely projects my teamies have made, so I hope you've got time to pop over to the Fiskarettes UK Facebook page to see them.
So, back to my project. I decided to make a calendar for birthdays and anniversaries which is easy to update. It saves all the hassle of writing birthdays and anniversaries in new diaries or on calendars every year and it was really fun to make. The panel at the top is inexpensive foam board I bought from Hobbycraft. It's really lightweight and easy to cut. I covered it in green card, embossing the ends with a Cuttlebug 'Swiss Dots' embossing folder. The flowers are punched with a Fiskars 'Sunflower' punch. The tags are punched with a Fiskars 'Ticket and Curly' 3 in 1 tag maker. I colour-coded the tags, yellow for female birthdays, blue for male birthdays and red for anniversaries. The tags are joined together by hinged rings, so it's easy to add tags and keep them in the date order.
This is a close up of part of the calendar. All the tags and circles were punched from snippets, so I'll be off to play in the Playground.....
I would like to enter my project for the following challenges:
