July Calendar Page

I finally got around to finishing a page in my Journal, something I have been thinking about for a while.  I've seen others in real life as well as on blogs and thought they were a brilliant idea.  "What is she talking about?" I hear you ask.  Answer - "a Calendar Page".

Now the reason I started with July (yes I know it's now September) is because the month started off with somewhat of a bang!  It was when I flew to Melbourne with Jenni & Jackie to attend the retailers day at Kaisercraft (actually two days, but who's counting?), followed by a couple of days away in the Blue Mountains with my BFF to pick up DS#1 from his Six Foot Track hike.  I wanted to be able to look back through this Journal and remember the things I have done this year, so July seemed like a good place to begin.

The stamps in the garden are a combination of Dylusions and JOFY.  Many thanks to Jenni for sharing her brand new JOFY stamps, they are just delicious and I know she ordered them specially, as this brand doesn't appear to have entered the Australian market yet.

The squares were punched using Stampin' Up's 'postage stamp' punch, the title is stamped in black Archival using stamps in my stash, and as ever Dylusion inks were used to colour the page.

So now that I've started on this journey, I'm going to have to continue otherwise it's going to look pretty odd having one calendar entry and nothing else.  I'm not sure how August is going to look, but I'd better think of something quickly before I forget what happened!!

Thanks for coming by to see what I've been up to, and you're most welcome to leave a comment (although if you leave a comment using 'Anonymous' please add your name, otherwise I won't have any idea of who you are) !!!

Happy crafting!


  1. Looks fantastic Helen! My poor September page is half complete.....not happy with the background, but because it is loaded with texture paste, not sure what to do about it!

  2. What a fabulous idea Helen! I like the idea of just a quick memory prompt like this. Vicky x
