Made a tag calender this evening.

Hi all :)

Tonight i wanted to make something quick and easy, main reason being because my eldest wanted to see me make something before she went to sleep tonight lol. She started the night in my bed as she wanted to chat about a few worries she was having about high a years time! :)

As my bedroom doubles as a craft room, she was able to chat away whilst i made this quick calender tag.

Real simple to make, i just die-cut a tag and covered it with the "wings" paper from the Prima "Angelique Collection", then blended some distress inks around the edge. Then i backed the distress inked mini calender with lace and stuck it on the tag.

A few white dots around the edge, one of the small paper flowers that i seem to be using loads of these days and some fibres to finish it off with, and hey calender tag.

Thankfully it was to my eldest satisfaction, so she's fast asleep now. All that is left to do is to carry her back into her own bed, they don't get any lighter as they grow up do they!?

Hope you like the tag, I'm going to do another one for my little one, it's such an easy project to do. They can even help do this themselves.

Thanks for looking. :)

Yet another gorgeous creation. It's beautiful and I'm not surprised that your DD likes it. Hope she's able to stop having worries about starting high school. It can be quite daunting for them can't it?

This is lovely, Calv - I like the way you've used the lace behind the calendar. Hope your little one's (or not so little!) worries have now been eased. x

I love the relationship you and your daughter have. (I'm a Daddy's Girl myself.) Congratulations on that! So many people miss out on those talks.

It's a fun calendar! I seem to always think of tags lying sideways. Now you've got my brain working...

Wow Calv, why did I spend do long on my 12" x 12" calendars for pressies when I could have gone this route. These are fab. (Nicking this idea for next time lol)

Thanks everyone, she's feeling better this morning, more interested about the boys at school. :)

I haven't seen your 12 x 12 calenders on your blog Mellie, are they there?

Thanks for stopping by. :)
