Dreams du Jour Calendar

This was the 3D item I did for an organized  swap at Convention…I needed to make 18 of them.  It is an clear acrylic picture frame with a magnet on the back.  I purchased them at Michael’s for 99 cents each.  I used my Crop A Dile to punch two holes at the top (actually the bottom of the frame) so I could run ribbon thru it to hang it if they wanted. 

The insert is a base of Pink Pirouette cardstock and Bella Rose check paper.  I did the scallop punch on a strip of Riding Hood Red for under the checked paper.  Dreams stamp from Dreams Du Jour was stamped with Chocolate Chip on Whisper White, then I used my blender pen to pick up the colors of Kiwi Kiss and Pink Pirouette for coloring.  A mini Ruby Red brad is in the center of the largest flower.  I just placed a strip of Kiwi Kiss paper behind the Dreams stamp for some added color.  I dyed the White Grosgrain Ribbon with Kiwi Kiss ink, slid it thru the holes and tied them in the back.  I added a medium calendar I purchased from www.skybluepink.com.  Makes a nice gift!  I like to do these for small gifts at the holidays! 

I think I caught up on my sleep a little bit…evidentally we had a bad storm last night…I didn’t even hear it.  lol!
