2018 Calendar by Cathy

Cathy Potosky is getting creative today by using bits and pieces from many of our 2017 collections! She created this custom 2018 calendar and we just love how it comes together! We will let her take it from here.
It's hard to believe another year has already begun. Happy New Year everyone, I hope 2018 is an amazing chapter in your story!
My first project for Wild Whisper this year is a quick and simple calendar for my craft room. I printed the calendar image from the internet and chose one that had space at the top of the page for a picture. I am using 4X6 cards from a number of the Wild Whisper Designs collections.
I edged all my cards with Distress Ink in Walnut Stain and then adhered them to the calendar pages. You do not need a ton of supplies for this one and you  can change it up to suit your needs. I left mine a full 8 1/2 x 11 sheet because I tend to jot notes on little scraps of paper everywhere. My hope is to keep myself more disciplined and jot any notes down in the margins of my calendar pages.
I also chose cards that had messages that I love. For June I used the card from World's Best about my Dad being my hero :) January starts with a reminder to believe in myself and the months continue with inspiration. 
For binding them together, again there are so many ways to do it. You could hole punch and use a snap ring to hold it, staple it together, or you could even glue the top edges together. I went with the clips so I could hang it on my wall. I have it right behind where I sit so I can add notes or due dates and it's not on my table, so hopefully it will make it through with out getting paint/ink/spray etc all over it! :)
