I always try and have some sort of tutorial for the new calendar. This one is such a good idea that is may just morph into a technique class for the new year.
Each year I have printed the calendar on cardstock, so this year I decided to change it up and print on transparency sheets. This is the brand I had here at home which I am sure is years old and probably purchased at Walmart or Office Depot. I printed the calendars using my home Laser Jet printer but the packaging says it works with ink jet too.
Once I had the 3 pages printed, I cut them into squares. I also cut Ranger Manila cardstock 5 x 7 1/2" to fit on a small clipboard. I already have enough stuff on my desk, so the calendar hangs on the wall right by my computer.
I colored the cardstock with Distress Stain - tumbled glass, squeezed lemonade, and spun sugar (and a spritz of water).
I was going to use the Tiny Attacher to secure the calendar but I found that static keeps it in place. You can turn it upside down and the transparency doesn't fall off or even move. I live in CA and maybe we just have a lot of static here, who knows? You can always attach it with the Tiny Attacher, brads, or vellum tape.
You can make one background or twelve...whatever you like and have time for. I think this one may be my favorite yet - what I need combined with what I like.
