Thank you for coming over to have a look at June Calendar Page
My regular visitors will know that I buy a blank calendar from Papermill Direct every year and give it to my mother. Each month I do some sort of papercrafting to decorate the page, sometimes something my mother askes for and sometimes something different I’m working on.
What I Did
I stamped the image out and then coloured it before trimming to the finished size.
I chose a background that I think worked with it as well as a couple of shades of blue cardstock.
These were all cut to size as mats and layers as well as a few decorative element strips to break up the background.
The largest, dark blue, sheet was A4 in size and then everything else trimmed to fit as needed.
I made the Welsh “Mis Mehefin” title in two tones of blue as well.
Everything was stuck flat for this page, using fingrlift tape.
I finished off by wiping the gold inkpad around the outside of the panel and also sticking on some sticky back faux gems.

Photos Of The June Calendar Page
This is the whole calendar hanging up in Mam’s room. I attached a plastic wallet at the begining of the year so that things like hospital appointment letters, etc., can be dropped in and we know exactly where they are when needed.
A closer look at the page for Mis Mehefin – June.
This was the panel I created – photo taken after I’d inked the edges, but before I stuck it to the calendar.
A closeup of the stamped image I coloured in. The colours don’t look quite right on my screen when compared to the real thing, but everybody’s screens look slightly different, so I have it doesn’t look to bad to you.
I will have a 65th wedding aniversary card card to show you in a couple of days time, so please do pop back to have a look at that.
