The Bubbly Scrumptious Challenge Blog, Vanilla Sugar, has Coasters as the theme for January. There were lots of interesting ideas by the Design Team but I really didn't need any more actual coasters, so I had a look at Splitcoaststampers resources to see what projects there were on there and found THIS little calendar.
My coasters are not the crafting chipboard kind, they are real coasters that I bought in the supermarket when they were on sale 6 for £1.00, so they are somewhat thicker than the ones used in the project. That meant that I couldn't cut them with either my Bind-it-all or my Crop-o-dile! So I made a binding from card in the same way I did with my Christmas Album.
The project instructions link you to a place to print out your calendar. I used the photo of me with my boys that was taken at Christmas, I love this picture.
All Papers are Websters Pages 'Postcards from Paris' from Bubbly Funk Shoppie.
When it came to a little embellishment, I thought I'd make this bunch of cherries using some faux flower stamens I got years ago from Lakeland and a couple of bits of leaves from a leaf/stem ribbon.
I have to say I am really pleased with this and it is going to sit on my desk at work.
