Perpetual Calendar

Hello, crafty friends! It’s been a short week for many of you in the States with the July 4th holiday – hope it was a great celebration! It’s time for another fun challenge over at Craft For The Craic and I’m excited to share my GD inspiration project for the July Handmade Flowers challenge! I made ANOTHER perpetual calendar – I really love this cut file as it makes them so easy to throw together! Hope you don’t mind seeing two in a row… I actually made this one prior to the green one and did not intend for them to be posted back-to-back but since they were for two different design teams and two different types of challenges, that’s just how it worked out! :\

The double-sided paper is from Dare 2B Artzy and really brings the orange and navy blue color combo together in a beautiful way. The month stamps are from Stampin’ Up and are just the perfect size for the boxes.

The navy blue Glittered Gumdrops coordinate with the numbers on the cubes and the handmade flowers across the bottom of the base.

I’m really loving how these turned out and can see more of them in my future, lol! The two I’ve made so far are gifts for a couple special ladies in my life. I hope they like them!

Hello, crafty friends! Well, we are officially past the half-way mark of 2017. Like I keep saying, Christmas will be here before we know it, lol! I created a fun Perpetual Calendar for our Dare 2B Artzy Bright Colors challenge going on this month! I used the GOR-JUSS Diamond Bliss Paper and a sentiment from the Flip Flops stamp set stamped in Margarita Lime ink! LOVE these colors! Come on over and play with us for a chance to win a stamp set and ink pad of your choice! ;)

OMG, I had such a good time creating this! The Dare 2B Artzy double-sided 12 x 12 papers are amazing and of such good quality – just perfect for projects like this.

I couldn’t decide which side of the paper I wanted to use for the cubes or the walls on the base, so I cut all the layering pieces and kept flipping them until I made up my mind. I love the sentiment – a reminder, every day, to take a moment to relax!

Here’s one more shot of a different angle. These colors are just amazing, and perfect for our ‘bright colors’ challenge this month!

I’m so tickled with how this turned out. The days and months keep rolling with these cubes and boxes… just like they do in real life! ;)
