Welcome Jeanne, thrilled to have you with us!
Serendipity has several sets of the Calendar Months... all beautiful images! Makes it easy to create an entire year calendar. I added the little banner hanging down with "Santa's Coming" stamped in Versafine Crimson Red. I printed the calendars out on Neenah Classic Crest Natural White Paper, which is a soft ivory in color. The finished calendar measures 6x6. I used Dimensional SIlicone under the curved banner to keep it propped up. A few crystals, a little button and jute string bow to embellish. The paper is from Authentique's Wonder 6x6 paper pad, I cut it down to 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" and then added the two layered mats. To cut all the layers I used Perfect Layers Rulers.
 The calendar months measure 2.5" x 3" large enough to stand out but small enough to color quickly if you are doing sets. 
Above are the Copics I used.
 I went for a cool wintergreen color with a snowflake theme for January. 
You can see below I stamped two sizes of snowflakes on to the paper. You can find both snowflakes in the set Snowflake Flourishes. I used paper from Lily Bee's Memorandum paper pad to add the snowflakes to. I added die cut snowflakes popped up with foam tape; I used Spellbinder's 2010 Snowflake Pendants. I used a Viva Holographic Glitter pen to add sparkles!
You can see here I just used a few Copics to add color. I stamped the snowflakes with one of the newest Tim Holtz colors - Iced Spruce. I thought it was a great match to the paper colors and a great color overall! Again, the finished calendar for January also measures 6x6.
