Day Off Anya calendar


I don't know what I was thinking when I bought those mini calendars from Taylored Expressions.  I didn't make nearly enough with what I bought and now I've got about 20 that need to be used up before the end of the year.  Looks like the next couple of posts will be calendar related.  Who wants one, or two, maybe three?  hahaha!  Doh!  I'll have to plan better for 2016!

The nice thing about making these mini calendars is that I'm using up some scrap patterned papers!  I'm also using some of my forgotten punches and dies that I've purchased over the years which is another plus in my crafty-use-what-I-have book.  LOL!  Here's a sassy fun mini calendar featuring Day Off Anya from The Greeting Farm.

Look at all that hair!!!  I thought SSSC - Tress had a lot of hair, my goodness Day Off Anya gives her a run for her money.  (hahaha)  I had a lot of fun coloring her up and then putting the layout together. The sentiment on top is from Dollie with Hearts set and the one on the bottom I wrote myself.   The doily behind DO Anya was cut with a Prima doily die  and some Martha Stewart lace patterned paper.  The yellow cardstock was edged with Prima ink and a Recollections punch.  I think I'll enter this in to the FFF Ribbon & Lace challenge.  Hopefully my lace patterned paper qualifies.  ^.^  I'm also going to link up at Anya Oddies & Others.  What a fun new site find.  It's all about sharing your love of stamping, be sure to stop by and link up on all of their different pages.

This turned out to be a pretty nice sized calendar and now to find her a home.  I'll have another calendar to share tomorrow.  Until then, enjoy your Saturday!!  Thanks for stopping by!

Another night owl or early bird working/reading blogs...LOL! Yes, I guess it is a common problem of what to do with all those extra calendars. You made a her hair! Using up scraps or engaging a seldom used die or punch makes me happy too!
