2022 Desk Calendar

Hi there 🙂 The first challenge of the new year at Creative Fingers is starting today, and we’d love it if you could join us. The theme is always ATG, so anything your creative minds come up with is welcome! Angelique is sponsoring, offering this stamp set with some fabulous sentiments.

I like having a calendar on my desk at work, so decided to make one for my DT inspiration. The image is a freebie from Kanoko Egusa, and was just too pretty not to use! I colored it up with my Copics, then fussy cut it out. I die cut the 2022 out, then popped it on the image using foam dots. I printed and cut the monthly pages out, then ran the the tops of each through my sewing machine to perforate them, before stapling them together. That’s where I ran into trouble!! I must have been looking at things wonky, because the staples were crooked, and wrecked the look 🙁 I solved the problem when I was assembling the calendar, by adding a strip of paper and a pretty die cut bow over the stapled part. I made sure it didn’t interfere with tearing off the months when needed 🙂 I found this tutorial on Pinterest for the design of the calendar base.

I’d like to enter this in the following:
