As part of a recap/best of I want to share this calendar that I created using SRM Stickers, My Mind's Eye papers and twine from the Twinery. This was part of my guest design work for SRM stickers and one of my favorite projects from 2011, so I am really excited to finally get to start using it! It's a great project for this time of year though, for obvious reasons.

I created unity throughout the calendar by using the same paper set on all the pages. I also used 3 squares - a photo, a calendar and a space for notes - on each page. (except one).

I didn't want every page to be the same though, so I varied the design of each page by sketching out the designs ahead of time. Finally, I added a sticker sentiment and some twine and/or ribbon to each page.

The base of each page is just plain cardstock so that it was easy to place the finished pages into my Bind it All and punch the holes for the bindings.
