Que Sera Sera Calendar

Happy Friday Friends! I hope everyone has had a pretty decent week, despite the occasional ups and downs! :) Today for your inspiration, I would like to share with you my most recent calendar that I made last week. It was a custom order with very limited direction. I love when my customers give me full artistic realm as to what to create. The calendar was to be sold at a sorority auction. The main colors of the sorority were blue, silver & gold/yellow. Feeling the need to include red into practically everything I do, I chose to do the calendar with lots of red...highlighting it with bursts of blues and golds. As you can see, the majority of the calendar was created using lots of vintage ephemera and lots of fun doodads.

For all you scrappers out there, here are the products I used...patterned papers: K & Company's "Que Sera Sera" & Amy Butler, Glitz Designs Scarlett for the handmade rolled flower; borders: GCD Studios Artsy Urban, vintage yellow tickets; flocked blue sticker: Anna Griffin. Tools I used: Imaginisce's Roly Rosies as a template as well as the big Fancy Pants swirls stamp I use all the time. :) As for the actual magnets, I used a Jillibean Soup journaling jot for the #7, a Maya Road bingo marker for the #14, a crown rub-on from the infamous Jenni Bowlin for the #21 and lastly a sweet felt cupcake to commemorate birthdays from Martha Stewart.

I hope you enjoyed this little burst of color this afternoon! Let's all do our best to have the best weekend EVER! :) As always thank you dearly for stopping by and all of the fabulous comments you leave me, I truly feel the love. :)
