Handmade calendar using stamps

Hi there,

Welcome back to another fun handmade project. Today, I have handmade calendar using Zodiac stamps from Craftyscrappers. The entire set is available at our store. I have loads of picture below (take your time and scroll down). 

I used the images from the stamp set for each month (example: Since Aries has maximum dates in April, I used that image for April and applied the same for all months.)

Materials used:
1. Craftyscrappers stamps
    a. Virgo
    b. Leo
    c. Scorpio
    d. Libra
    e. Cancer
    f. Gemini
    g. Taurus
    h. Aries
    i. Sagittarius
    j. Pisces
    k. Aqaurius
    l. Capricorn
2. Burlap
3. Die cut lace
4. MDF calendar base
5. Gem stones
6. Pattern papers
7. MDF Embellishments
8. Walnut stain distress oxide ink
9. Circle die cut
10. Layered die cut
11. Ribbon

Since there is not much to write about the post, I have lots of pictures below here. 
For the base I used pattern paper and decoupage sheet.For the front cover (the first picture), I used decoupage sheet, some die cut pieces, MDF embellishments and a Mdf sentiment to decorate the front of the calendar. 

The rest of the calendar, I kept it simple as I wanted to focus on the image. Hence, kept them very simple. I coloured the images with my polychromos and tombow colour pencils. 

I die cut 2 circles one from white cardstock and other from black cardstock. I layered them together and added the fuzzy cut images to them. 

To the base, I added pattern paper and every month has a different pattern paper. I added some burlap and a lace die cut to the base. Then added the image and the month with dates. I did the same for all the other months too. Then, I added the jump rings and fixed it to the base.
