4th Friendship Swap

So, we did our swap last Friday, and here are my calendar pages. I used Basic Grey's Curio papers, embellished with Prima vines and flowers, some muslin cloth, and a little bird die-cut using Tim Holtz's Caged Bird Die. The alphas for the month are from Jenni Bowlin Studio.

Here's a look at an individual page.

I tore out and distressed a "window" for the calendar which is printed and mounted on cardstock and inserted within this "window".

I then decorated the calendar page with the flowers and vines, and placed the die-cut bird at the bottom right of the "window" using pop-up dots. I stuck the month onto the bird's body.

And here's a look at the "buffet spread" of calendar pages (thanks Esther for the photo) - 24 designs in total, 24 pieces of each design, each lovingly crafted by 24 of us scrappers! So thank you ladies for your works of heART! The pages are lovely! :)
