Desktop Calendar

Typically, people make their calendars in December getting ready for January.  But since I just found this tutorial a few days ago, mine is a few months in. You can find the tut here at Hungry Heffy Crafts.  I love that blog!  There's a bunch more crafty things I want to try when I get a chance to. I had to make my own measurements up and change the calendar dates so they would match this year. She has a download link on the instructions for the calendar element.  It comes in a pdf which you can open in Photoshop and fix.  A few weeks ago, Heidi Swapp was on HSN selling some of her kits.  I used her Soiree kit plus a digi patterned paper leftover from the Mouse, Paper, Scissors class, gaffer tape from 7Gypsies, a bulldog clip from Making Memories, card stock from Stampin' Up!, and the ribbon from my scrap ribbon jar. It's bound together with the Bind-it-All. 

I {heart} making rosettes!! 

So we are still in the middle of Art of Digital Design.  I'm having a blast making my own kit!  I used my own kit to make my desktop for my computer this month.  It desperately needed it...still had January up! Here's my desktop so you can kinda get a preview of what I've done with my kit.

Speaking of class, I better go do yesterday's assignment...

I LOVE your computer desktop!! Awesome job. How did your first kit go? Have you gotten it posted?

I found you on Pixels and Pix where she listed all of those of you from the class and I love Jessica Sprague classes so I just had to come check all of you out. Good luck and best wishes on creating kits in the future.

I'd love it to pieces if you'd come check out my site and let me know what you think at Thanks so much!!
