The Robin's Nest Shout Out - Mama LoveBug Style - A Perpetual Calendar

Good Day, Crafties.  I love to make practical gifts so I've designed a perpetual calendar - it can be useful and decorative for your kitchen area or desk to keep you "on top" of significant birthdays, anniversaries, or other special dates (all in one place)!  At the end of the year lots of people have to laboriously recopy dates onto a new calendar - why do that when you can have a perpetual day finder of your own?

First here's the inside - as you can guess, each month is numbered with the appropriate days so one can record the special occasions.
 Here is a long shot of the decorated front of the perpetual calendar.
 For better pictures I took a shot of the top portion.
And a shot of the bottom.
Recipe for the perpetual calendar
*Two charming Sherri Baldy digi stamps - round and rectangle
*Frames from two Spellbinder dies
*The Robin's Nest Glittered Sorbet cardstock - I used Kiwi and Aquamarine HERE
*Bottom Border fancy punch
*LoveBug Creations Rumple Ribbon for the weaving around each frame - HERE
*Prisma colored pencils, gamsol, Stickles, and gel pen for coloring and highlighting each image

Hopefully you are inspired to try your hand with these products and create your own perpetual calendar.
Remember, no matter how you piece your paper and rumple your ribbon, have fun with it.........cyberhugs.........Mama LoveBug

This is super cute, Pamela. I love the aquamarine color from The Robin's Nest. I always use it for my projects...I guess it calls to me. :)

Hey mama...I love how you "wove" the ribbon through the paper layers. What a clever idea. And the colors you chose have great contrast!!
