My first Softpencil Thursday!

YAY! How excited am I to be doing my first Softpencil Thursday!

This week we are working on the fantastic Calenders that Elizabeth has created. My one is soooo adoreable!! Our challenge was to use 2 or more layers.
My calendar download is called 'Looking for my friend' and is availabe to purchase here

I changed the layout of my calendar as I wanted to make a fridge magnet, as I am always misplacing my calendars, and thought this would be a good way to always find one!!

  • Softpencil 'Looking for my friend' Digi download
  • DCWV christmas paper
  • white card from ebay
  • cotton from my newly purchased sewing kit!
  • Coloured with whispers pens
  • little magnets (on the back), from Create & Craft
I have layered up the calender and hand sewn it together to make it easy to tear off when those first 3 months have flown by. I also added the handsewing element around the image - never done this before and quite like how it has turned out!

I can't wait for our next weeks challenge - these images are lovely to work with, so go over and have a look at what the DT have come up with as well as what Elizabeth sells in her store!


Pin It Now!
