Happy Saint David’s Day
March Calendar Page & Video
Hi and welcome to my blog (or welcome back if you’ve visited before).
Today is St. David’s Day, the patron saint of Wales. And as it’s the 1st of March it means it’s time to show you another decorated page of my mother’s calendar.
If you are regular visitors to my blog you will already know about me buying a Papermill Direct blank calendar each year for my mother and decorating up each month as it comes along (Have a look at the January page – Here! and the February page – Here!)
Because of St David’s Day being at the start of the month, and flowers starting to peep out in the garden, I decided to make a Welsh themed calendar page this time, including dafodils.
I’ve used several dies from the Tattered Lace Welsh Die Collection. I bought them via Create & Craft and there was a free download that came with them that allowed you to print out ready coloured, with bleed line, versions of each image and then cut these out when you don’t want to colour your own. For this project I did use the images already coloured which TL call Charisma.
I also used one of the backgrounds I made during my “Playing With Ink, Stamps and Stencils” sessions.
What I did, including some links to what I used to make the background, and a YouTube video, can be found on my earlier blog post – Here!
I made a video of some of the stages of makeing this calendar page. You can have a look at it on the Crafftau Maes Mieri Crafts YouTube chanel.
You can see the English version of the video – Here!

What I Used
- Background made previously – see blog with video – Here!
- Tattered Lace Welsh Die Collection
- 300gsm Super Smooth Cardstock
- Charisma images made to go with the dies printed onto the cardstock
- 2mm deep, double sided goam tape
- Fingerlift tape
- A4 sheet, red, pearlescent cardstock
- Snap die cutting machine – I’ve got the battery as well so I don’t need to have it attached to the mains to work.
- Papermill Direct Calendar
- Month title in Welsh – created in MS Publisher and printed onto white paper.
- Low tack tape.
What I Made
I started with this blank page
Made up the A4 piece to go on the front – look at the video to see how I made this. I purpously put the background image to one side for a different look this time.
And then attached my creation to the calendar page.
I have several bits of different crafting on the go at the moment, so keep an eye out for them over the next few weeks.
