Cards Made From Calendar Designs.




These are some cards that I made today. Very easy using recycled calendar designs. These are from a 2009 calendar called: Fractal Universe - a 16 month 2009 Calendar edited by Panny Brawley and Keith MacKay. I bought 2 of these calendars in 2008. Am using one as my wall calendar and the other I cut up the fractal designs to use on cards. I'm really pleased with the results. It shows the potential of things we have around the house, that can be recycled such a calendars, wrapping paper, photos, magazines etc. Just be sure that the design is thick enough to support the glue/adhesive you need to adhere it to the card base. Then punch out a stamped saying and attach to the card. Quick and easy.

Fractals are computer generated designs. I think they are amazing. At one time I even made them myself with special software and printed them out in color for cards.

If any of you are looking for this calendar (name and creator listed in the text), amazon.com has them. You might also want to check your local Barnes and Noble. That is where I found mine.

Thank you all for looking at my blog and leaving comments for me too.
