A big project.....and revisiting a freebie :0)

Hi, everyone!

It's October....Breast Cancer Awareness Month! Don't forget to have your mammy! To help bring awareness to this issue, Celeste, Yolie and Gaby are hosting a Link Up For Pink Party! While my project here is not "Breast Cancer Specific", I definitely think this is an important issue, and who better to be a reminder than old farts, Gus and Stella?! lol! We all want to be around "to annoy that one special person" for a loooong time, so "save the tatas!", ladies, and make your appointment!

I am working on a big project....well....big for me, anyhow! lol! I recently bought a Cinch machine, after holding off for what seems like forever! I wanted to be able to make calendars for Christmas presents, and now I can! Yay!!!
Well, here is a month that I have completed, and it is going to be entered into the Catch the Bug Challenge,  PCP and CDAC Wacky Wednesday Challenges, which is a sketch challenge this week. Okay.....I may be stretching my take on it a little - five hearts, instead of three "somethings", and my lines are a bit "wider" than there sketch shows. What do you think??
Here's the sketch that Bugaboo provided for the challenge

Here's the top page of my calendar to follow it

This calendar uses my Hugs & Kisses Mat svg.
These SVG files are no longer available for free.
Please visit my SVG's for Sale Page located at the top of this blog.

Stella and Gus....they crack me up! This calendar is for my mom and dad. I plan on making each month with a Stella image, and I thought this one was perfect for February! lol! They are so funny! 

For the base layer of this page, I used a SVG that I made, called Hugs & Kisses Lace Mat, and it is being offered to you as a FREEBIE today, for a limited time only! The download file contains a 5" square svg file, and an A2 svg file, but you can certainly resize them to suit your project! :0)

Each calendar page measures 8" x 9", and I plan on cutting it down just a bit more before I bind them all together.....I'm thinking by half and inch on the long side. I'd like to be able to cut the image page off when the month is over, and possibly use it in an 8" square frame, or make it part of a scrapbook layout. 

Jodie includes funny sentiments with many of the images she creates for Bugaboo Stamps, and the one here is the sentiment that came with this image. I colored the image in PSE (it's printed at approximately 5" tall). The photo didn't pick up on it, but the hearts papers are glossed. I made the February calendar page below, too, using a free heart font I found online, called "Heart Letters" (appropriate, huh?! lol!). 

Thanks for stopping by today! Enjoy the free svg, and I hope you consider joining in on the fun challenges that Bugaboo Stamps has going on - it's a great way to win free images, like this one! :0)
