Be Thankful:  Authentique November Desk Calendar Tutorial

Hello, Friends!  Hard to believe it, but we are due for our Authentique November Desk Calendar Tutorial!  I don’t know about you, but this year seems to have moved along faster than usual.  At the same time, it seems like it has gone on forever.  So I really love the reminder on the front of this month’s calendar to, “Be kind. Be thoughtful. Be genuine.  But most of all be thankful.” Yes, yes and yes again!  Thankfulness has chased away my blues more than once this year!  How about you?

Just like the preceding 10 desk calendars in this series, the November calendar measures 6″ x 6″.  The warm autumn hues, classic patterns and vintage style images really warm my heart this month.

And if acorns don’t say “autumn” then I don’t know what does!  I’ve added some adorable acorn buttons to dress up the front of this desk calendar.   Really Reasonable Ribbon Cappuccino Satin with a Grosgrain Edge is the perfect shade for this month.  And of course, I had to add some burlap string to add that rustic fall vibe. Brush Mixed Earth Tone Cottage Roses with a little Gathered Twigs Distress Ink to add depth and detail to the petals.

Just look at all the gorgeous images and photo folders tucked in to the pull out folio inside the hidden pocket this month!

And of course we love the little wallet sized trifold folios with the silhouette images on the cover!  I changed things up a bit this month…as you will see in the video tutorial.

So, are you ready to get the Authentique November Desk Calendar made?  You only have a few days, so you’d best get on it!  LOL  Here’s a step by step tutorial to guide you along the way.

Only one calendar left for 2020.  Makes me feel a little nostalgic, how about you?  If you need to get caught up on your desk calendars, you can find the other tutorials HERE

Thanks for stopping by!

    This make is adorable and certainly reminds me of the spectacular colors of the fall foliage along Skyline Drive. In the last three weeks of October, the oaks, maples, Gignko trees, cherry trees, sourwood, sweetgums, dogwoods, and tupelos, produce vivid color displays along this drive. The only down side is the traffic! These calendar makes bring back fond childhood memories of the seasons in VA. You are such a master at evoking these memories through your craft projects. I believe there is no end to your creativity. It’s always a treat in the morning when I take a peek at your new creation – Thanks, Kathy!

    Well, Kathy, it seems every month becomes my favorite. LOL This desk calendar is absolutely gorgeous! The colors are so warm and cozy and those little acorn buttons are so cute! I just love every image and the sentiments are so heartwarming and not just things said but truly things to contemplate and practice. I just knew your November calendar would be something special and I was so right! Thank you for sharing this lovely creation and making the tutorial! Hugs!
