Calender {part 2}

Happy New Years Eve to you all!! :D hope you enjoy all the celebrations....
As promised, here is part 2 of my calendar, if you didn't see the first part, take a look at yesterday's post.
I'm entering it again for this challenge:

So, here's July - December:

Who doesn't love BBQ in the summer?? Well, this stamp is from Unity. It's called Retro BBQ, but I'm not sure.

I love this flip-flop die from Lil'Inker Designs....

I really like the autumn colors, especially the leaves :) These stamps are from the craft's meow.

My friend's birthday is in October, so I thought she'd like this. The die is again from Lil'Inker Designs. After cutting out the balloons, I colored them using Copics and then I drew the strings.

As soon as I saw this background paper, I HAD to use it. As it often snows in November, I thought this snowflake from Lil' Inker Designs would look nice.

And, last but not least, December is here! This die is from Memory Box. To make the wreath pop, I added some gold liquid pearls.

Hope you liked my first handmade calendar! I hope you all have a wonderful 2013!!!

Calender {part 1}

Hello everybody! As there are only 2 days left of this year, I wanted to share something special with you first handmade calendar!!I think giving calendars as a gift is a wonderful way to celebrate and start the new year :)
I'm entering my calender for this challenge:
- Sunshine Creations #4: Season's Greetings - As I mentioned above, calendars are perfect to celebrate New Year's part 1 of my calendar

The stamps here are from Lawn Fawn "Making Frosty Friends".

Here in Switzerland, there's a festival called "Fasnacht" where you wear a costume. I used the hat from "Making Frosty Friends" and the racoon is from "Critter in the Forest", Lawn Fawn. The mustache is from a itty bitty set from Unity.
Who doesn't love the first flowers in springtime? The stamps are from PTI. One of them is called "Year of Flowers".

April Showers :) I used dies from Lil'Inker Designs...I love the stitched effect on the cloud!

I cut the bird with a die from Memory Box, the music notes are from Lawn Fawn.

And the last for today....a bright, flowery June :) These dies are from Lil'Inker Designs as well.
