Thank you for clicking over to have a look at my blog
July Calendar Page
Today’s post is something I should have shown you a good deal earlier in the month. If you’ve visited my blog previously you may have seen the posts I’ve made showing how I’ve decorated the blank calendar from Papermill Direct that I gave to my mother. I’ve not blogged the early months of the year, but you can see the post for April – here, for May – here, and for June – here.
I’m trying to decorate the pages for each month using different types of papercraft, and for July I used a CD-ROM and some dies.
The dies I used were “Mel’s Signature Collection – Budding Camellia Die” and “Mel’s Signature Collection – Magnolia Memories Die” and the matching My Craft Studio CD-ROM.
I printed out the images that work with the dies onto 200gsm super smooth cardstovk and also printed out several backgrounds.
I used my Snap die cutting machine to cut out the images and then started placeing them out in different positions on ßwveral backgrounds untill I had a background and layout I was happy with.
I shaped the pieces a bit using my fingers before starting to stick everything in place using some small pieces of foam tape to give the image some dimention.
This is what I came up with.
Here’s a closer look at some of it from an angle, showing some dimension.
And a closer look at some of the flowers.
This is what the whole page looks like.
So, that’s the July page. I now need to think of what to prepare for the August page. I’m sure I’ll be blogging what I make at some point during next month.

(Thank you for reading this blog post. I hope you like what you’ve seen and read – You should find a box below where you can leave a comment if you feel like it – but due to the fact that, like many I’m sure, I’ve had some problems with Spam/advertising posts that are absolutely nothing to do with the content of my blog, I now moderate all comments before they go live. Genuine comments will go live when I’ve checked through the list – usually a couple of times a day.) (Thank you to every body who’s left comments on my previous blog posts. I really do appreciate them all.)
