Bring some sunshine to your day with this dazzling work of art! Here Anne explains how she created this beautiful calendar!

I made this Calendar box for Graphic 45 CHA winter 2014 with the gorgeous Sweet Sentiments paper collection! I had so much fun fussy cutting out the images and most of  he images are pop-up with pop dots ( 3D foam) and covered with Claudine Hellmuth multi-matte. Had so much fun fussy cutting out the images and put them together to a scene. The house box shrine and the small fence  is from Gina Designs. Love it. Also used a Prima metal clock that I cut in 2 to build up the sides.


Video Tour:






 The calendar I found by Google such and printed it out.
