I made this family birthday calendar
for my mom and step-dad for Christmas last year
and totally forgot to take pictures of it until now.
I used Cricut cartridge Opposites Attract
for the word "birthdays" and welded it using Design Studio.
I also used Cricut cartridge Plantin Schoolbook
for the word "FAMILY"
and for the welded abbreviated months.
I got my cartridges and Design Studio,
oh and Diamond Glaze from
I got the frame from Roberts Craft and
then added the hooks to the bottom.
I Diamond Glazed the words and Modge Podged
the whole thing. After it was dry, I added the ribbon.
The stars were sold from a lady that makes
the stars already hooked all together and painted.
Then you just write everyone's names
and the day they were born on each star...
simple as that!!
I talked to the couple that sells the stars and they gave me permission to give out their info if you are interested in ordering the stars I used on this project. I got them from Heart & Soul Crafts. They don't have an actual store or website so you have to call Roger 801.726.0577 to order and send a check or money order to get your stars. They sell to a few local shops and go to craft fairs/boutiques. Check out their Facebook page HERE. If you have any other question, give me a shout!
I put all my parents grandchildren in the frame
which I first printed in wallet size
and then inked and ruffed up the edges
to add some character!
