October Calendar

Good Morning To You and Happy Fall Y'All!

I had some vacation time that I had to use up and so I'm taking this week to be as crafty as possible. My absolute favorite time of year is once again upon us and so I'm chomping at the bit to make Christmas cards and projects but first, a little something for the here and now.

I've been wanting to make one of these flip calendar cards for a long time, ever since a lady that I've been following, (since the beginning times of my blog), made one.  It was such a blast to make and I really hope you like it.

The stamp So Spooky Tilda is from the 2009 Magnolia So Spooky collection, colored with Copic Markers

I died the ribbons on the tags with Distress Ink.  BTW, this style of card is called a Side Step Card.

I have used many DooHickeys dies: Summer Gate, Tilda Tag, Paris Night (cat), Cloud from club #4, Pumpkin & Leaves from club #6, Moon from club #9.  I have also used Spellbinders & QuicKutz.

Tags.  Love the sayings!

Don't you just love the papers?  I've used two different sets from MicheleRDesigns, Fright Night and Halloween.


Copic Markers:  Face: E000, E00, E11, E13, R01, R20  Hair: YR20, YR24, YR27, E39, E59  Dress & Shoes: V01, V09, V12, V15, V17, C1, C3, C5, C7, C9  Broom: Y21, Y26, Y28, E31, E35, E57, E79
Distress Inks: Black Soot, Dusty Concord, Forest Moss, Rusty Hinge, Vintage Photo


Thank You All for stopping by.  Leave me a comment and let me know what you think.  I'll be back with something new just as soon as I can.  Until then, have a great day and better tomorrows.

♥ Laura C.
