2019 Mini Calendar

  1. Stamp the cats and color them with Copic markers. Fussy cut them and edge with a black marker. Set them aside and let them play. They're kittens. They'll play, they'll snuggle, then they'll nap. They'll wake up eat, excrete, and start the process all over again, all the while providing endless entertainment.
  2. Paint the chipboard numbers with the Media Fluid Acrylic paint. Let dry. You can heat set if you're feeling impatient.
  3. Smoosh the numbers into the VersaMark pad and heat set with Clear Detail Embossing Powder. Repeat a few times so that the numbers are all glossy and dimensional.
  4. Adhere the paw print paper from the Kitten Smitten pad onto a piece of 6x6 chipboard.
  5. Cut two thin strips of Floral Paper and adhere to the top and bottom as shown.
  6. Adhere the numbers using a liquid adhesive.
  7. Adhere the kittens as shown using a combination of liquid adhesive and dimensional foam adhesive squares.
  8. Cut a piece of the floral paper slightly larger than the calendar. Back with cardstock, then adhere under the number.
  9. Use Extreme Double-Sided Tape (red liner tape) to adhere the calendar to the floral rectangle.
  10. Adhere the last two kittens to finish the calendar.
