Hello again my furry little friends and their two legged subjects! The Cat Lovers Hop continues!
This time I have a sweet gift set of a hanging 2018 calendar and a matching card:
Here’s a close-up of the calendar… I cut up a Heartfelt Creations Raindrops on Roses die cut and used the pieces to frame the pretty Furry Little Story Paper. The roses are made of vellum embossed in blue and then colored ON THE BACK with a Copic marker.
Note: when using ink to cover the bracket album, it is best to use pigment ink! (Instead of an album, I used each ‘page’ as a sturdy calendar backing.)
Materials used – calendar:
- Heartfelt Creations Botanical Rose stamps and Botanical Wings dies
- Heartfelt Creations Raindrops on Roses dies
- Spellbinders Grand Labels One
- Kaiser Craft Bracket Album
- Scrapberry’s A Furry Little Story paper pack
- Foray Transluscent Inkjet Vellum 30#
- Docrafts 2018 calendar tabs
- Tsukineko Versamark ink
- Stampendous Beach embossing powders – Sky Blue
- Copic marker – R39
- Tsukineko Brilliance pigment ink Pearlescent Poppy
- Pebbles, Inc. Pearlescent Chalks: Jewel Tones
- Martha Stewart Crafts Metallic Microbeads: White Gold

For those of you playing along Blog Candy Giveaway games from THIS post, I’m sure you’re right smack in the middle of the puzzle. It’s time for another hint: Do you know what a bunch of cows and a type of orchid have in common?! Don’t fret… You will still get entries for the Bonus questions whether or not you get the answers to #1 and #2 correct. Have fun! Oh, and it may hearten you to know that even the puzzle creator had to wrestle with this… I was just making up my ‘solutions’ post and found I lost a word in my answer key somewhere along the way in the many revisions. So, when tallying the answers to #1, I will give credit to both the answer I hinted at in the last two posts and the correct answer. A toast to imperfection! Our kitties understand – as long as we feed them on time!!

Love that sweet card, so delicate and soft like a purring kitty…. Only better because it won’t later hark a hairball in the hall.
Love the way you cut your card in half diagonally with two separate designer papers! Such a clever design and so soft and pretty!
Thanks so much for linking up to Cropstop with this — we appreciate your loyal support of the challenge!
Both your card and calendar match beautifully! Oh gosh ‘2018’ – How fast the year is coming to completion! Pretty florals.. and such sweet sweet kitties!! Cute little cat button too!
I L*O*V*E that calendar! How fun and so useful, too. Pretty flowers! Love the matching card, too.
That cat button is adorable.

You did such a pretty job on the calendar. Love all the pretty kitties, flower and white lace papers (I am guessing they are diecut?) Very nice indeed! 🙂
Yes,, the white lace papers are Heartfelt Creations Raindrops on Roses die that I cut apart, and the flowers were their Botanical Roses.
Your calendar is GORGEOUS! Fabulous decor item! 2018 will be so much fun with this calendar to look at! I must make one of these! Those papers are precious!
I don’t know how I missed this one. Love the flowers!
Such a beautiful set!
