Hello everyone! It’s Eva on the blog today, sharing a quick tutorial for a DIY Wall calendar using the wonderful Foil Quill Pen.

I don’t know about you, but I always like to start the school year with a blank calendar. I put all my kid’s activities in there and also all the things I need to take to school, that way I don’t forget anything! The bigger the better, so I created an A3 wall calendar perfect to use on your or your kid’s desk.

To start this project I cut my paper into 7×11 inch rectangles.  I decided to use a new Park Lane Paperie stack, it’s called “Je ne sais quoi” and you can find it at Joann Stores. The thing I love about these stacks is that they have double-sided patterned paper but also include some specialty paper and cardstock in coordinating colors!

I used the cardstock and some 12×12 Foil Quill sheets to create my letters. The cardstock worked great and I love that now I don’t need to cut my foil, I simply put it on top of my sheet and send to the machine.

After I foiled my papers, I removed the tape and sent the file to cut the border. Tip: Don’t unload the mat completely after your machine has stopped foiling so your design doesn’t move!

Next, I used my Laser Square to align all my elements: the patterned paper background, the letters and the calendar.

I didn’t include the day’s names because I wanted to stamp them. I used the Mini Precision Press and some coordinating ink. Did you know you could use the acrylic plate without the base? Very easy and perfect stamping every time!

I love how my calendar turned out! It is very simple and you can reuse it every year, just change the names of the month! And look at that rose gold foil! Amazing right?

The patterned papers are beautiful and they fit my home décor perfectly!

One thought on “Make a Wall Calendar with the Foil Quill

  1. I have the Foil Quill Kit, extra foil, the laser square, Kelly Creates USB and cardstock. Missing Cameo. 😂😂🤣🤣😱. I have 2 though. One won’t work cuz rollers won’t roll. Got a new one that has been in the box for 3 years (long story). So what’s a girl to do? I’m gonna sell that unopened Cameo 2 buy a Cameo 4 coming out soon, buy some more foil cuz by then I will be HUNGRY to foil. Bring it on!!!!
    Have to add that the calendar has been inspirational.
