December Calendar Page
If you’ve not a regular visitor to my blog you may not know about the blank calendar from Papermill Direct that I gave to my mother as a gift right at the begining of the year – which I’m decorating for her month by month.
Over the year I’ve tried to use a variety of papercrafting styles, with a little but not a lot of dimension (because too much dimension would mean it would push the calendar out when flipped over the next month). Some pages have been decorated with something requested by Mam, some I’ve given her some images to choose from, and some she’s just told me to surprise her with anything.
You can catch up with my previous calendar pages by visiting my posts about them if you want. I’ve not blogged the early months of the year, but you can see the post for April – here, for May – here, for June – here, for July – here, for August – here, for September – here, for October – here, and for November – here.
I decided to turn to a Hunkeydory collection for this month’s image. It is a collection of animals, and I chose an image of a stag which had decolarge layers and matching background.
This time I used 2mm deep, double sided, foam tape to stick every thing in place – from sticking background to calendar to adding the decupage layers.
Here are a few photos of the page. (Sorry the photos are not the best I’ve taken.)
I’ve not photographed the whole calendar page this time, or the file attached to the bottom to hold appointment letters, etc. But this the whole page decoration I added.
So, that’s the last page for this year done. I’ve already bought a blank calendar ready to give her for next year, so you can expect to see more posts about that as the year progresses.

(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.)
If you can’t see the comment box then there should be a link that says “Responses” and clicking on that will bring up the box
