Hello everyone!

Does it also happen to you to forget things? Very often to me!


I forget names, the reason why I enter a room, I forget the appointments! I live with post-it attached anywhere in the house, I make lists on lists to try to organize myself and then, of course, I forget where I put them.

A disaster! Yet I am only 30 years old... ok ok 40... oh well 44 years!


Until recently I forgot even birthdays... (I know, I am a bad person!), but not anymore, because now I can count on my “Birthday Calendar".


To make it I used the *Best Friends Forever* paper collection, in particular for the frame (which I made using the *Happy Frame XL* die) I chose the lightest wood-effect paper.


Since i needed a 30 cm wide frame, I stretched the die cut using the technique shown by Tania in the video I leave you here (https://youtu.be/1eDu_WM4WUI).


Before gluing the die cut on the lower side, I drilled the 12 holes of the months and I threaded the string. Then I built the frame, and glued the white background.

At this point, I made the central composition, overlapping different sizes of rectangles obtained with the *Dashing Rectangles* die set. In addition to the Best Friends Forever paper, I also used the special paper *Garzata Trasparente* to give greater depth.


Then I decided to place the words "It's the birthday of..." (*Buon Compleanno* die set) on a banner also stretched with the same method as the frame.

In the upper right corner I added a small festoon created with the *Flags* die.

On the 12 wires I put the rectangles (*Treat Holder*) on which the names and dates of birthdays will be noted.


Finally, using the stencil *Friend* and the *Fluffy Aquamarine* and *Fluffy Sunshine*, I added the arrows coordinated with the *BFF* collection. I made some arrows on the white bazzil and once dry I cut them.

Fussy Fluffy Cutting! A rub and the glitter started to shine! Wow!


I hope you enjoy it!

Thanks and see you soon!

Francesca.
