More Calendar Months

Hello friends!  Yay!  Happy Friday!! 🙂

So I know that I haven’t been on here in a while to share calendar months that I’ve been working on and would you believe that I had actually had forgotten about continuing on with them?!   The first week in May came by and I went to look for the next calendar month to display….and it wasn’t made yet!!  LOL!

So here I am almost at the end of May with my calendar…it has been displayed for the last week though! 🙂

Vicki-Calendar Month May

It has most certainly been the “sneezin’ season” around where I live!  The wind blows that pollen everywhere!  I know how this little guy is feeling!!

Again, for all of these, I have used the Taylored Expressions 3×4 Calendar panels with the printed design at the top.  (of course mine are the 2019, but if you click on the link, it will take you to the 2020 calendars!)  I have slightly cut the edges off so that I could make a layered panel behind them and still keep the 3×4 size.

All images came from the Taylored Expressions Calendar Grumplings stamp set and coordinating dies.  I’ve used the sentiment from the set and made a banner with it that I’ve tucked underneath the elements from the Build-a-Scene Calendar dies.  I’ve colored all the critters with Copic markers.

Vicki-Calendar Month June

LOL!  This is my June month and I’ve decided to color this guy with spots!  the only thing different I did here was introduce the tree with the TE Build-a-Scene Trees dies.

Vicki-Calendar Month July

OMG!  I had so much fun with this guy!  It reminds me of the kids when, you know, you’re out celebrating for the Holiday and they want something, you say “no” and they’re grumpy and tired…so they have that frown face holding a sparkler!! LOL!  The little stars were cut with silver sparkle paper from the TE Build-a-Scene 5×7 Calendar dies and the frame was cut with blue sparkle paper from the TE Build-a-Scene Calendar 2 dies.  I die cut the sentiment out with a banner die from MFT.

Vicki-Calendar Month August

I’m thinking that when it gets August over my way, I will probably be feeling like this!  LOL!  I’ve used the TE Build-a-Scene Calendar dies for both the frame and the sun on this one.  I’ve covered the center of the sun with some glitter and the sentiment was cut out with the same banner die from MFT.

So now that I’m all “up to date” on my calendars, I will have some time to not only finish out the rest of this year, but hopefully when the next time comes to make another batch of these to finish out the year, I will also start making up the calendars for 2020 so that I’m finished and AHEAD of it before the year starts!!  Remind me about August to see if I’ve been making those calendars, will you?

I hope you’ve been enjoying seeing these calendar months progess as I’ve been making them…those grumplings really make me smile!

Thanks so much for dropping in today!  Have a great day!

  1. Hi, Vicki! Your build-a-scene calendars are especially sweet with your darling characters and beautiful backdrops. I like that each month is a different font. What a great way of sending a birthday card, too, with the special day circled – to make a customized card. Beautifully designed and full of happiness and joy, just like your other creations! hugs, de

  6. Your calendar months look gorgeous, Vicki. You remind me of my calendar months which I make for my Rolodex. I also am behind since May. Must make time to make some months ahead.
