The poinsettia is die cut from a Elizabeth Craft Designs die. I had made it and not used it. It's the perfect color and I just had to use it on the cover.
chose double-sided papers to go into the calendar and stamped front and back of each page with the Hero Arts Calendar Bold Prints stamp. I was wondering if some of the patterns would obscure the stamp, but it didn't. I have no trouble making notes and printing and using digital stamps and regular stamping on the pages.
The umbrellas are from a Hero Arts cut file at A2Z I started my calendar mid-March and April is on the back of March. June is on the back of the May Calendar page. I have all kinds of notes and love the page. A key die-cut from a soda can is covered with a silver pen.
May is a celebration of Carnaval in San Francisco on May 27 and 28. That's why I chose the paper and San Francisco Designation stamp.
You can see the calendar below the "APRIL" die cut letters. I can still write dates and info in the squares. I stamped the umbrella with the wood block Paris stamp on the umbrella. The umbrellas are from a cut files available at A2Z, called Weather Cuts Digital File.

The butterflies are from a stamp set available at A2Z Scrapbooking called Color Layering Butterflies.
July is bright and cherry with flowers as the background. I thought the new stamp set of Enjoy the Journey was perfect for this enchanting background. A bottle with some nautical images is perfect for this calendar. I know I will enjoy this so much.
The pattern for August may not be as imposing or enchanting as other patterns, but I would love to travel out of the hot valley here in Sacramento.
The ships from Enjoy the Journey work for me.
