Sizzix - Key/Keyhole Calendar

This is the final project for the January Sizzix Die of the Month class at Scrapaganza.
Tim Holtz had posted a wonderful technique for making foam stamps with your dies using craft foam! So that's what we're doing with this project. I cut the lock with craft foam, glued it to a piece of acrylic (scrap from packaging) with 3 in 1 glue, then used gold dauber paint and stamped the lock image onto the calendar background. Cut a key with chipboard and embossed with gold embossing powder.

This little calendar is perfect for a desk. A few ladies in the first class mentioned they would be using theirs in the kitchen or bedroom, where there isn't a wall calendar but often they need to glance at a calendar quickly for a date... The calendar pages on this I made myself, and it is 6x6. Small enough to take up little room but there's still space in the squares to jot a little reminder.

Thanks for stopping by!
