November Calendar Page
Time for another page to be decorated on my mother’s calendar.

May page – here! June page – here! July page – here! August page – here! September page – here! and Octoper page – here!
This month I’ve gone for papers, toppers and embelishments all from one autumnal collection (the same one I used for the 60th birthday card I showed you lately).
What I Did
I started by choosing a sheet of pearlescent cardstock from the collection. I also picked out a few sheets of background papers, two foiled toppers and a sheet of foiled leaf embelishments.
I used fingerlift tape throughout this project to keep the page totally flat.
I cut the papers into wide and narrower strips and, as the background papers were not long enough to fit the main sheet of cardstock top to bottom, after sticking the narrower strips onto the centre of the wider strips I cut a piece of around an inch and a half off. I positioned the background strips so that the shortest piece of one was at the bottom and the sortest piece of the other was at the top, trying to make sure that it looked a continuation when I stuck on the toppers to cover the gaps.
I finished off by adding some of the foiled leaves as embelishments.
This was then stuck to the November page of the calendar and I also added the month title in Welsh – Mis Tachwedd.
What I Used
- Papermill Direct blank calendar (you can already order for 2020 – here!)
- Kanban Autumn Moments Collection
- Fingerlift Tape
- Cutterpillar Pro Paper Trimmer
Photos Of The November Calendar Page
This is the panel I created, ready to go onto the calendar.
I’ve taken a photo at an angle to try and show the foiling.
This is the whole calendar page as it looks hanging on the wall in Mam’s room.
Getting in closer.
And finally a photo of just the month name and panel on the calendar
Hopefully, before long, I will have more batches of Christmas Cards to show you. I really am running behind with makeing the Christmas Cards for my mother and I to send, as well as packs to sell up in the chapel where a portion of the price goes to the Sunday School funds.
