Design Challenge :Calendar 2016




Hi there!

It is Design Challenge Time and I had a lot of fun building my project featuring the exciting new dies from Els van de Burgt Studio and Joset Designs. I also incorporated the new patterned paper Through The Lens-Wood.

Lets get start it!

1. Cut a rectangle piece of  11 x 6  inches from Beige cardstock.

2. Make 3 score lines: The first one at 2 inches, the second at 5 inches and the last one at 8 inches.

3. To Built the Stand Up Helper Die Cut 2 Rounded Banners in beige cardstock.

4.-Cut 2 more banners in a brown cardstock, remove the bigger piece and overlay the small ones to decorate the beige stands.

5. Cut a rectangle piece of 5 3/4″ x  5 3/4″  from Trough the lens-Wood patterned paper.

6. Cut a rectangle piece of 6″ x 6″ from beige cardstock.

7.- Die cut two square pieces, one in beige cardstock (3 3/4″x 3 3/4″) , and one in brown cardstock (3 1/4″ x 31/4″) using the Stitched Squares Dies.

8.Using double side adhesive adhere these pieces as show in the picture.

9.- Print a Calendar Online, and built them on top of the brown stitched Square piece (3 1/4″ x 31/4″).


10.- Die cut a banner in brown cardstock with the V shape Banner.

11.-Add Transparent Double-Sided Adhesive to the back of gold shimmer sheet large enough to die cut the 2016. Adhere the numbers to the brown banner.

12.-When the panel is finalized adhere to the front of the base card.

13.Die cut some ropes from dark brown cardstock and patterned paper TTL-Wood backed with clear double sided adhesive, to decorate the bottom of the stand up card.


I hope my project brings you some inspiration to built your 2016 calendar.

Happy Crafting!!
