July Calendar + Free Printable

I didn't think I would ever get a chance to do the July calendar. I have not had any access to my craft room for about 6 weeks now. We replaced all of the floors in my house with a beautiful barn wood vinyl plank flooring. I love them but I would never do the entire house at once again if I had it to do over. It has been so disruptive. I'm starting to go stir crazy not being able to sit at my craft desk. To top it off, there were issues with the flooring in my craft room and I am now waiting yet another month for them to come back and redo it.

While I couldn't dig through boxes to find whatever parts and pieces I needed to make my mother's July calendar, I realized last night that I just so happened to have access to my June Paper Pumpkin kit. Without my color printer I couldn't make my own paper this month so I figured I would create an alternate project from the kit and get this business done. Let's see how it turned out:
This is 100% kit contents, with the exception of some liquid glue I managed to muster up. While I would have generally done a patriotic theme for the 4th, it is her birthday month so I think this is a much better choice.

Sadly, no matching pen this month. On the bright side, I found out that silly woman just displays the darn things and doesn't use them anyway. Normally I would have a paper pack release available for you but the July release is behind schedule, like everything else in my life right now. I do, however, have some kits still available in my Etsy Shop from the May 2018 Paper Pumpkin "Manly Moments" (available only in the US). It is rare to find masculine kits and cards,
