Penny Black Saturday Challenge January - Anything Goes!

It's the first Saturday of the month, so that means it's time for a new Penny Black Saturday Challenge...where the theme is:

'Anything Goes'
(In fact, all of our challenges will now be 'Anything Goes', but from next month we will have an additional optional theme for those of you that like a prompt)

As usual, we are sponsored by the awesome 1-2-3 Stitch:
Prize - a $20 voucher!

My project for this challenge is a 2018 Penny Black calendar. I buy a few of the blank 'Create a Calendars' from Paper Mill Direct to decorate and give as Christmas presents each year, and this is the one I made for my Mum. They still have some available here if you fancy making yourself one.


I used a variety of Penny Black stamps and papers from lots of different manufacturers...far too many to list, but I did manage to use up lots of snippets! Here's a look at each of the months:













I'm also entering this calendar into the following challenges:

What a great calendar Helen! Great way to use up snippets too. I have a friend who would probably love one of these - I meant to make one after seeing yours last year but time just flew past. Perhaps I can still do one - will check the website out. Or perhaps keep it as an idea for 2019 :)

Interesting that the PB challenge will be anything goes (with the option of a theme ) from now on. I adore that challenge and must try to make time to play along.
