Happy New Year! - Shopping Our Stash (Use the Last of Something)

Hello, Crafty Peeps!
The Challenge this week at Shopping Our Stash is:  USE THE LAST OF SOMETHING.
  I thought it would be ironic to post a project that I made using the Last of Something to Make a Calendar for the coming New Year.   

 I played around with this cover a lot!  I was going to put 2014 on it, but decided I just liked seeing the wonderful images on this G45 paper.   I settled for just adding a little Glossy Accents and pearls.

I did not to use a base/stand, instead, I used a heavyweight chipboard that can stand alone.  
I forgot to wrap the ribbon around my binder rings.  I may do it later...maybe.

I wanted to keep the calendar pages consistent, so I chose to use the Journal Tags on each page with a few embellishments.
 I also managed to use the last of these Prima Flowers and some strips of Neenah Card Stock.
 Shabby Chic is not my strong point, so I was really just winging it.  
In the end, I really liked the calendar.

I found the tutorial for this calendar on YT  HERE
This is an Italian Language Channel, but Italian is not necessary to follow the Tutorial.
The Calendar size is 5"x7"
