A little 2014 calendar!!

Morning all!! its Lou here today with a little teeny make for you to peek at. I am being naughty like our Debs and not telling you which download these papers are from, I am just going to say they might be new and they definitely are very gorgeous!!

Now I have a thing for beermats... I have always had a thing for beermats and collect them ( sad Lou!! lol!!!) but luckily my mum's friend also works in a pub so she gets me extra ones for making little projects like this. I just cover them with papers and you have the perfect board to play with!!

I used 3 papers from the 'download that shall not be named'  (:) he he he!!!) for this make. I covered my beermat with a darker green paper and then sanded around the edges. Once I had done that I dabbed around the edges with some fresco snowflake paint  and added a little band of lace across the middle.

Then I adhered my calendar tab to the base and got busy cutting flowers and punching leaves!!! I wanted it to be ok for use all year round but that was easy to do because the papers are so funky you can't tell they might maybe be christmas ones....... ;)

Thank you for popping in!
huge hugs Lou xxxx


  1. This looks so great Lou! I think the green paper looks great with the sanding and the fresco flakes. :D

  2. This is a super dooper make Lou :) I love that this has been made with just a beer mat. Nothing in your house ever goes to waste. I can't wait to let everyone know about these 'new' backing papers.
