I know we concentrate on cardmaking most of the time but there are just some products that immediately make me think about calendars and Howard Robinson’s cottages are one of those things!
We have produced a new decoupage pack using 10 of Howard’s designs (you get 20 sheets in a pack) and they make wonderful decoupage with little frames and borders. Some of you may recognise Howard’s work from jigsaw puzzles you have seen or bought, he is madly popular and successful both in Europe and across America.
This country scene is what many of us consider a perfect country idyll. There are golden labrador retrievers by the doorway, roses, ducks, swans what more could we want!
The calendar is simple to make, you take half an 8” square card and cover with some backing paper. Add the image and all the layers of decoupage and then use one of the very handy little calendar pads which you can buy at craft shops or online. The hanging ribbon is made by punching a couple of holes along the top and tying the ribbon securely in a knot. Easy-peasy and a fun little gift that someone will enjoy for the whole year!
