Magnetic Cabinet Calender – November!

I am so excited to share my November Kitchen Cabinet Calendar – I have a bit of a crush on my cute little turkey fellows!!

I changed up my medium this month.  Prior months I used paper that I made into stickers with my Xyron machine but Ellie, my 3 year old, found them to be too appealing and wound up trying to disassemble the calendar.  They also left a heck of a residue on the wall so I started thinking about what I could use instead and settled on vinyl.  It is super thin which makes it much more difficult for little fingers to remove and I happen to have a nice little stash of vinyl to play with!

I used my Cricut Expression, my brand new Gypsy (my new favorite thing) and several different cartridges:
Pilgrim Hats – Designer Calendar
Thanksgiving Day marker – Designer Calendar
Date Numbers – Sesame Street Friends (I have tons of numbers between all my cartridges but these are the most simple ones I have found)

 
Dapper Turkeys – Create a Critter

The Gobbles – Create a Critter

I Voted circle for Election Day on November 2 – Designer Calendar
November – Designer Calendar
Turkey Day Marker Magnet – Designer Calendar  (you can see it on November 1)

Hope you like it – I am really happy with how it turned out and Ellie was really excited when she saw it this morning which thrilled me to no end!  I am already working on December and have some fun ideas for it so watch for that in the beginning of December!

    This is such a great project!!! I love your cuts, your use of vinyl (I need to use that more often, I forget how versatile it is!) and your turkeys are adorable! I might have to look into that Designer's Calendar cartridge – I may have some use for it after all! Thanks for playing along with us at FCCB and rocking the challenge!
