Tag Table Calender..!!

Hello Bloggers!! :)
A very Happy New Year 2015 to you all!! Me and my husband decided to start with a new year project. He loves photography so he would be making a calender using Photos. And this got me thinking! So, here I am presenting before you a new year project - A Tag Table Calender!! :D



I am getting addicted to distressed ink! Wow!  I said it loud now! :DThis calender idea is something new to me and I am enjoying it ! It is also a CAS idea. :) I am not so comfortable making stands, so I tried this for the first time.
I started making these tags first. I created 12(January to December) + 4(0 to 3)+ 10(0 to 9)+ 3 Transparent paper tags. In total 29 Tags for this calender!!

So, I started with the 12 tags (dimensions are 2.5inches* 5 inches) from January to December
For this, I have used Tim Holtz Kit 2.
(
Kit #2
SwatchSwatchSwatchSwatch
Fired BrickMowed LawnSalty OceanSeedless Preserves
)

I used all the four colors to make it look colorful. The distressed ink gives your paper a very beautiful look!!

Then i decided to merge all the four colours on one tag paper for the number tags(0 to 9 and 0 to 3).
So, here is how i blended them on all four corners.
And they are ready!!

 So, now we have 12 tags for the months and 14 tags for the numbers of the month ready with us!
For Stamping, I used the Clear Stamps Alphabets. I stamped all the months of the calender on the 12 tags that I created. Here is a look at it..
And more pics..

I added the digits using stencils and seedless preserves distressed ink.

I used these cute star clamps to hang the tags on the stand..We can also use hooks instead of the clamps. However, clamps make it easy! :)
 Now, for the stand, I began by using a card board and cutting it into dimensions greater than the three tags combined.
I covered the stand with brick patterned paper. I have utilized the corners of cut tags by decorating them at the bottom!! :)
I also used a strip combining all the four colors and stuck it at the bottom on the stand for decoration.
The stand is erected using  cardboard strip at the back side of the board.

Here is another look at the Tag Calender!
The best thing about it is, it can be easily customized!! I have added 3 transparent tags in front of these tags in order to increase its life. :)
I am thinking of adding days tag to it too! we can add year tags too!! We can customize this calender and change the theme/colors of it easily!

I am happy to begin this year with my calender project! You can flaunt this calender in your office cubical or your study table at home! :)

The material I have used is:
1. Tim Holtz Distressed Ink Kit # 2
2. Alphabet Clear Rubber Stamps
3. Number stencil
4. Card Sheets
5. Brick patterned paper for stand
6. Tim Holtz Ink Applicator
7. Star Clamps
8. Cardboard
9.Cutting mat/ cutter/scale

I have entered this into a lot many challenges:

  1. What a fabulous idea and it looks great! I didn't however see where you had used any DIES on this project so your entry will not qualify for the prize in our challenge. But I hope you'll join us again using a die cut for the January 'Anything Goes with a Twist' (using something NEW) challenge!
