Perpetual Calendar

Good morning everyone!

Today I am going to show you the Christmas present I made for my daughter.

I used Recollections Union Square Plaza Union paper pkg.

Love the red and black vintage look!

Red and black are my daughters favorite colors so this collection worked out perfectly!

The box was a Christmas box I found at the Dollar General.

I added gesso to the outside then a bit of vintage photo before adding the papers.

The flowers are Recollections...the large rose
and Wild Orchids Craft...the small roses.
The gems that are tucked into the flower arrangement are from Pro31 Design.
Trim is from my stash.
Black bling trim is from Walmart.
Here are the "date" cards, front and back.....

I love that this paper has glittery bling on several of the sheets, 
unfortunately I could not show that in the pictures.
The days of the week cards.....

The tags with the days and the months on them were cut on my Cameo.

All the papers were inked with vintage photo distress ink.
The month cards.....

The different tags on the bottom of the month cards are part of the paper line.
I fussy cut them all.
They as well as the month and day tags are all pop dotted onto the cards.
And the back of the months...

I used a variety of lined papers for the back of them months so she could write every ones birthdays, anniversaries, etc back there.

If you would like to see a video of this box, 
my first youtube video,
feel free to stop by and check it out here.

Hope you all have a Very Merry Christmas!
Stay warm!
