Preparing your page components:

1. Cut the following pieces from your papers:
  • 2- 1 3/8” x 1.5” pieces from A side of plaid paper
  • 2- 1 3/8” x 1.5” pieces from B side of plaid paper
  • 2- 1 3/8” x 1.5” pieces from B side of tags paper
  • Using decorative scissors or trimmer blade, trim one edge of each piece and round the opposite 2 corners on each piece so that they fit inside the squares on the calendar paper

2. Stamp 3 stars and 3 crowns in circles onto scraps of the plaid paper (side A or B, or a mixture)
3. Cut out the stamped stars, and punch out the crowns using a 5/8” circle punch.
4. Round the corners of your photo to fit inside a group of 4 squares on the calendar paper
5. Colour the ornate frame on the calendar paper with your blue pencil or Copic Marker
6. Randomly stamp the grouping of 3 stars stamp into the number 13 space on your calendar paper, and also onto one of the plaid pieces you cut earlier

Assembling your page:
1. Adhere the plaid and tags paper squares randomly into the number spaces 6, 10, 16, 20, 26, and the blank space after 31.
2. Stick your photo centrally into squares 11, 12, 18, and 19.
3. Using 3D foam pads, adhere the star and crown stamped pieces, placing one on the edge of each patterned paper square.
4. Add your title inside the frame at the top of the calendar paper
5. Finally, add your journaling inside squares 17, 24 and 25.
