Today the Gina K. Designs team and CSS gals are previewing the mega stamp set Calendar Grid & Calendar Bits & Pieces by Tami Mayberry! This stamp set is so versatile; not only can it be used to make calendars, it can be used to document dates and add journaling to your scrapbook pages and make invitations to special events! I’m sure between all the talented ladies on the dt and css and various GKD fans will come up with many more ideas that I haven’t thought of!
For my first project, I created a gift calendar for Christmas. The patterned paper is not adhered behind the calendar, it is just laid on the metal picture frame and magnets are on the backs of the calendar, month and year in addition to all the little images to mark special events during the month (on this one, the cupcake for my DH’s birthday) and leaf signifying it’s Fall. I picked out several months of Basic Grey pattern paper to coordinate the different seasons. I thought this would be fun to make for my step-SIL and her family, I think my step-niece who is 6 yrs old will have fun putting it together each month.
Here is January’s calendar to show you how you can mark a bridal shower with the umbrella image. How fun, Tami thought of all the events!!
Speaking of bridal showers, it gave me an idea to make a simple Engagement congratulations card to send to Dee Marie on STV who recently was proposed to by her boyfriend (that is Mary Anne’s daughter). I used the little cake image with bride & groom on top, along with the small border that coordinates with the labels 1 Nestabilities by Spellbinders. I used our new Kraft cardstock which is such a great color & texture like all pure luxury cardstocks! Chocolate Kiss and Rocket Red were used as well double-stitch ribbon which came in the Signs of Autumn stamptv kit (a great match for the kraft cardstock!) I embellished my card with some neutral and holiday buttons.
For some helpful tips on how to use the Calendar Bits & Pieces and Calendar Grid stamp sets, please be sure to check out Gina's blog and StampTV for a helpful video on just how quick and easy it can be to use!
