Yumi & Fumi Handmade - Challenge #29

Hi folks!

It's Sunday, it's a New Year and Yumi & Fumi Handmade are back from our Christmas break! Our first challenge for the New Year was showcased last week by Team Yumi and this week Team Fumi is reminding everyone that you have until this coming Friday to enter your project for our "Anything Goes" challenge.

I've been toying with the idea of creating a monthly desk calendar featuring a different Y&FH image each month (I do have all of the images after all) and finally came up with a plan with which I am forging ahead!

A monthly calendar that converts to a card after the month is gone!!

So - do you see how I'm making this work? First, I picked up a 5x7 clear acrylic photo frame at the dollar store. Then I simply made a 5 x 7 card - where one of the panels affixed to the front of the card is a monthly calendar. In this case, January 2014!

I also created a sentiment panel the same size as the calendar panel (you can see it in the first photo). After January has come and gone, simply remove the calendar card from the frame, cover the calendar panel with the sentiment panel and you have a card ready for gifting!

Easy peasy! Be sure to check back in the coming months as I feature each of the calendars/cards for the rest of the year! And don't forget to enter this week's challenge!

card details:
  • finished size: 5 x 7 inches, CTMH Heavenly Blue card stock for the base, white card stock mat
