This year I'm using a Studio Calico handbook. I bought mine HERE. You can still use my code HOLLYH at Paper Issues for 20% off your entire order. I haven't done anything with my album yet, but I've started working on the inside pages a bit.
I really liked Kelly's October month stamp and wanted one for December, but alas, she didn't make one. So I thought about making one myself. I found a font very similar, if not exact to the numbers in the stamp set, and made one myself.
For my title page, I printed it in dark grey on vellum, and then backed it with Crate Paper gold dot vellum, then backed it with cardstock. I think I might add some sequins or wood veneer stars, but I really like how it turned out. (the be merry is from Kelly's exclusive DD files)
The PNG files are available on my new freebies page up top, they are available in black and white. You can adjust how dark you want the black one, by using the lightness adjustment in Photoshop.
Here are some samples of the calendars.
I'm thinking about making a set for 2013, but I'm not sure if I should do the same font for the whole year, or different ones for each month...thoughts?
