Penny Black Calendar 2017

Every year I decorate a few of the Papermill Shop's 'Create a Calendars' for Christmas presents...and today I'm sharing the one that I made for my Mum. I used all Penny Black stamps, and papers from pads by Crate Paper, My Mind's Eye, American Crafts, Studio Callico & Recollections. I kept the layouts all really simple, using two different papers on each one (I managed to use up lots of snippets too!), just adding some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen.

Challenges for this calendar:
