A Calendar Event

Hi everyone, Andrea MacDonald with you today. I have a great little calendar to share with you.
All you need is an Ikea frame:

and the awesome Urban Lily Urban Cut collection Calendar:

I trimmed the calendar sheet down to fit the frame which didn't take much. I then misted the frame with some mists. The beauty about the Ikea frame is the glass part is actually plastic and it has a thin plastic coating over top. So once your frame is dry you just remove the plastic coating. No making needed (unless you use some cool masks to get creative).
I cut out the flowers from the calendar sheet and misted them to match the frame.
and finally just added a few little touches.
What makes this calendar so special? Well, the sheet that you put in doesn't have numbers on it, and the plastic part of the frame can be written on with window markers or dry eraser markers. You can see in the photo above that I wrote October, my numbers and our events all in window markers. When your month is done wipe it all off and switch to a whole different month.
I also used my Cricut and cut out an apple and a pumpkin to embellish the month accordingly.

I hope you enjoyed todays post. I think I'm going to be making these for Christmas gifts this year.
