Serif Craft Artist Calendars 2015 & more

Hi Everyone I had some time to work with the 2015 calendar kits from Daisytrail...plus Click Artistry Masks by Cottage Arts and Nature's Sketchbook Art Blends.

Below are a few ideas of different ways you could use them combined with the Daisytrail kits from the 2014 collection set.


Here is a Table Top Calender idea

 This was made using a combination of the Chalkboard Calendar and Woodland Walk kit. The backgrounds have a lovely texture and also re-colour beautifully. I blended papers together, clustered elements as finishing touches. Included a little word art and hand finished with distress ink.


 How about a Grungy Mini calendar flip book this one was made using the Polygon calendar kit. I created mini calendar cards for each month of the year, then printed and cut each one out. Distressed them to give an aged look then punched and tied with ribbon to complete.


Here's a Shabby Chic year at a glance calendar page . Combining the Ombre calendar kit plus elements and papers from Ruffles and Frills and Dreamcatcher.
This worked well... Combining the Nautical calendar kit with Art Deco Cruise...
I made a one month page to show what could be achieved if you wished to make a whole calendar
I also got to work with the Click Artistry Masks by Cottage Arts
these are intelligent frames that you can drag and drop your photos into.

This simple yet effective card is a little visitor to our garden, I edited the photo slightly to make the colour a little sharper. Added a fun caption and a little tip * Once the page was made exported it as a jpeg then brought that back into Craft Artist and printed that page.
Then last but not least a lovely gift idea... this matching notelet and keyring set 
There are so many possibilities and its great fun combining the calendars with kits to make some unique designs of your own. All editing was done in Craft Artist 2 software and each design finished by hand.
