Birthday Calendar

I finished up a Christmas gift last week. I am not sure if the recipient looks at my blog, so I have to leave out a few pictures so that I do not give it away.
All of the supplies are from Papertrey Ink, with the exception of some brads, a Heidi Swapp flower and a Maya Road stickpin. I started with the PTI Kraft Binder and decorated the front and spine with the Calendar Basics and Background Basics: Text Style stamps and Blueberry Sky cardstock, ribbon and felt. The ink is actually from one of my Tombow markers
Here is  a peek at the inside pages. Each page forms a pocket and I put a handmade card in each pocket.
