I have been working on creating a Calendar from chipboard coaster for 2 weeks...a little done here and a little done there. Tonight I finished it! The first one is always the experiment one, after that you can perfect your style into what you want it to be. I used 4x4 blank chipboard coasters, and 4x4 squares of card stock. I used my small corner rounder punch on the cs corners. I printed out the Month pages from SCS. Then just embellish and decorate to your hearts content. I used 1 inch loose leaf binder rings to hold it all together, it will stand up on your desk.

The numbers for '2007' were die cut from a coaster using my new Cuttlebug machine from Provocraft. Can I just say that I LOVE this machine!!! I sponged some Bordering Blue classic ink on them and then glued them down to cs.
I decorated each month with a 'theme' for that month. I can hardly wait to start doing different ones with entirely different themes.
