January 2013 Calender

Hello Ladies

This is my first post for 2013. I have not been very well over Christmas, but I am on the mend now so have had a little play.
I have not crafted for about 3 weeks so I was a tad rusty.
I was having a look around blogland when I noticed that the talented Kate Crane was doing her Calender Challenge again for 2013, so I thought I would have a go again. I did not get a chance to do them all last year, but I did do a few and I really enjoyed getting inky.
For all the details of the Challenge go here and take a look at Kate's fab blog.

I have chosen to use some Cosmic Shimmer Ink Sprays (I won these with Katy on Scrap 365, if you are a scrapbooker you should check out this magazine, it's fantastic, I just cannot wait for mine to drop on the doormat each month).
I have also used a Paperartsy vintage button stamp, a free star stamp from the December Craft Stamper magazine, and a few stamps from a "Park" collection by American Crafts.
The date squares are cut from a sheet of Basic Grey "Aspen Frost" paper and the edges have been inked with Walnut stain.
I have highlighted with a white posca pen on the stars and in the background I have used a "Crafters workshop" mask which is called mini flower frenzy.

Fantastic calendar page Debbie - great use of all your stamps including the CS freebie! I keep meaning to give Kate's calendar challenge a go, and have a book I bought last year! So I am off over to have a look at her blog.

Glad to hear you are on the mend and back crafting again x

The free stamps that come with the Craft Stamper magazine are brilliant little stamps. I loved this star stmp too and have used it quite a bit . Like how you have incorporated it into the top of your journal page for January. Love those colours you have gone with. Glad to hear you are feeling a lot better. Hugs Mrs A.

Hi Debbie and Happy New Year to you, hope you are soon feeling lots better, I 'm on my second round of a horrible cold but can see light at the end of the tunnel :) I love your calender page, did you do it straight into the book or on a blank sheet and stick it in? I have been tempted to have a go but have always been afraid of messing up the whole book in making one page :)
