Swedish House Crafts DT Card

Hello everyone, today I'm sharing with you my latest creation using yummy products from Swedish House Crafts.

I've been thinking of all the Christmas creating I need to do lately and that brought me to the time after Christmas, New Year. So I thought I would make a table top calendar ready for the New Year.
(Links to items used will be at the bottom of the post.)
I have used the gorgeous Maja Design Denim & Friends Collection, I love this collection so much, it really can be used for almost any occasion. I have machine stitched both layers.

I added layers using Gummiapan Stitched Banners dies, this was just to add a bit of interest. The leaves were made using Magnolia Grandpa's Flower Leaf. The calendars I just got from Ebay.

I also decorated the back, some desks and tables can be seen from all angles so I didn't want the back to look boring. I am going to put a quote on it as well.....just depends where its going lol.

I added Gummiapan Doodle Circle dies as these are fab for adding more interest to any project, I love them. For the image I wasn't originally going to use this one, I had coloured up another Tilda, however she was Christmassy and Christmassy is not an all year thing. So I went with this gorgeous Tilda With Umbrella Daisy, I coloured her dress with Weathered Wood to make it look kinda denim to go with the papers. I coloured her with distress ink refills and added Stardust Stickles to the centre of the daisy and her hair bow. Then I cut her out using Gummiapan Stitched Rectangle dies.

I have made the calendar folding so it folds flat for posting. All lace and flowers are from my stash. I used the co-ordinating Maja Design card stock for layers behind the image and the calendar, also for the doodle circles and leaves.

Thank you for stopping by
Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx
