Calendar Challenge - January




The Craft Barn's new challenge for 2015 is a Calendar Challenge, and each month we will be given a colour and a word that we have to incorporate.  This month we have Aqua and Snowflakes.

Anyone who followed me on last year's challenge will know I like to use beer mats and yes I have decided to use them again this year to make a small pocket book calendar!  At the end I will bind it with my Bind It All.  I have decided to make a perpetual calendar so have typed out all the months and dates to cut up and use and I found an ideal Crafty Individuals stamp in my collection to use for the first challenge.

Great start to the new challenge and I love your Let it Snow stamp. I'm guessing you live in a pub with your endless supply of beer mats!!

Do you have a box of beer mats, or do you collect them from the pub?

Lovely start to the challenge, I really want to join this one but have failed to make it for month one, I hope to still catch up and join in, but I have such a lot going on right now.
