The calendar starts out life like this:
Using patterned papers and die-cut accessories from the Teresa Collins Christmas Cottage Kit, I created this mini layout on the page for December:
I have made a 'background' for my layout cut to 11" x 7" and will use these measurements throughout the calendar so there is consistency. I like to create a background for each page rather than just create straight onto the calendar as this makes it more like a scrapbook page.
I created the mini trees from banner die-cut shapes from the accessories sheet included in the kit. All the sentiments and journal card are from the sheet also. I covered the printed details on the bottom of the page with matching patterned paper as I think this looks neater.
