January Off The Page Challenge with Kathy

Hi Everyone, it's Kathy today, and I'm excited to bring you the January Off the Page Challenge!  This year, we're teaming up with Lori Whitlock to bring you some great Off the Page Fun!  If you're not familiar with Lori, she has a fabulous SVG shop, and also designs cut files for the Silhouette Store.  I thought it would be fun to start off the year with a calendar/new/time theme.  Did you create a calendar for friends, or relatives?  Did you get a new planner? How about showing off your planner spreads?  How about anything related to new babies?  Birth Announcements, room décor, shower favors... New Starts... weddings, weight loss trackers..did you make any resolutions?  How about a resolution tracker?    Maybe a monthly mini album to hold your favorite Instagram pics?  Anything to do with clocks would be great too!  I used a lot of Lori's files this month to create my challenge project... take a peek...

My project is a cute little desktop calendar.  I started with Lori's 2016 Print and Cut Calendar, her Accordion Square Mini Album and her easel.  I then set out to decorate each month...

The Accordion Album has six pages per side, so it was perfect for the 12 months of the year... here is the first half...

 and the second half of the year!  Here are some close-ups of each month...
January used Lori's Snowman Set, February has the Valentine's Mason Jars file.

 March has the Shamrock File and April's bunny is from the Easter Icons Set.
May's flowers are from the 12 Fancy Flowers files and the cute little owl is Lori's Graduation Owl.

July's fireworks are from the Patriotic Box Card and the sand castle is from the Beach Set.

How cute is that little book worm??  He is from the School Apple file and the little ghost is from the Layered Halloween Embellishments set.

Last, but not least, the little turkey is Lori's Turkey 2 File and Santa is from the Santa Claus Gift Box file.
This was definitely a lot of work, but I'm so happy it turned out like I pictured in my head!! (that doesn't always happen....)  I can't wait to see your creations!  Remember to add your project to the comment section of this challenge photo in the Paper Issues Friends & Fans Facebook Group January Challenges Album.  You have until February 6th to play along.  You could win one of 2 Gift Certificates to the Paper Issues Store!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!
