Pink Christmas with Mini Calendar!!!

Hello everyone!
Hope you all are well and ready for the Christmas festivities!

Today is a special day for me, It's my Birthday, so I made a special project which is really near to my heart! It's a wall hanging cum Mini Calendar!!!

For a long time, I wanted to make a Calendar always and This time I got such beautiful new chipboard sets. This is my DT project for Expressions craft stamps and made me inspire to create a new style! I fell in love with all my heart with these chippies. The reindeer is soooo majestic with all beautiful frames in 3 different sizes and gorgeously design, love it!
It took me to complete in 2 days! It was a labour of love, but completely worth it!😊

I will show how to create these step by step process!

I hoard this cardboard for a long time from a packaging and it has 3 scored lines too:). I covered it with pattern papers.

The scalloped frames and reindeer are highlighted by crystal clear powder and sparkling dots using glossy accents.

I applied the chalk paint to the snowflake and highlighted it with crystal clear powder for frosty winter effects. The flowers are spritz with sprays and highlighted too for more frosty textures!

For the LO, I toned down the color of the PP using chalk paint, texture paste and spray, added more snowflakes using Merry Christmas stencil.

To create the calendar tabs. I stamped them month wise using jet black ink and my favorite tool Misti, always made work so easy and quick for best results and applied different stencils month wise like on Dec month I applied snowflakes, Jan with new beginnings so applied stars and so on....... You can see the pics clearly.

Now time to assemble all the things I going to use them in a Shabby style, so I took a rough pic in advance, always helpful to create!

Here are the few close-ups:

Love the majestic look of Reindeer with wintery crystal texture frame!

I used natural hay, twigs and tiny pine cone here!

I added the Calendar using brads and I die cut these tiny tags showing The year 2018 from the same paper pack.  There is a pen to write some special event or day on the backside of the tab!
These are the rub-on!

Here is the final go again! Hope you enjoyed this creation!
