Throwback - January and February

All over FaceBook, I see Throwback Thursdays.  That gave me an idea to make a set of calendars (two really) that are similar to a set of calendars that I made in 2011.  It's interesting to see how my style has changed in three years. 

Some of the calendars even have the same paper.  I am a paper hoarder and still have some paper from 2006!  I am trying to use them up and, hopefully, have them on completed projects by the end of the year!  A girl can dream!

In the pics, the 2011 calendar is on the left and the new calendar is on the right.


Not a huge difference but there are some subtle differences.  Both are inked, have bling and stamped images and has the same CTMH paper.  Jan 2011 has torn paper and Jan 2014 has a straight cut with a border.   My one word for 2011 is RANDOM and for 2014 is CLEANER. 

Same thing here.  Just some subtle differences.  Both are inked, has stamping on base, bling and stamped images as embellishments.  Only real difference is the 2011 has torn paper and 2014 has a straight cut with a border.  I didn't have any paper left from the 2011 so I used something similar.  My one word for 2011 is BUSY and for 2014 is CLASSY.

So, this is my next project.  Two sets of these "Throwback" calendars. 

Check out the next post for Mar and Apr. 

Hope you have a creative day!
