OMG, it's finally done, the inaugural project for the new craft room. I wanted to do something special and what is more special that the (hopefully) annual calendar line from Graphic 45? This is the Time to Flourish collection, that I have used to create a book that will lay open on an easel in my craftroom throughout the year.
Today I will show you the unbound pages that I used in creating my Special Moment Perpetual and Birthday Calendar Book (wow, that's a mouthful). I post pictures of the bound and decorated book within the week.
Each month has the same look. On the left, decorative pattern paper with a large removable photo mat/journal space with a header quote and a monthly flower on the bottom right, at the bottom an inspirational quote and two small square photo mats.
On the right page, a left-hand bar with the current month's calendar flanked by decorative labels, under that lies a pretty, square journaling spot; the remainder of the page is dedicated to a space to record birthdays, anniversaries or other special dates for that month, elaborately decorated above and below with die-cuts, ribbon, monthly stamp cut-aparts, tag cut-aparts and other embellies to match the layout.
