Calendar Bits & Pieces Blog Hop!

Hi and welcome to a Gina K Designs blog hop featuruing Calendar Bits and Pieces and Calendar Grid, the newest stamp designs from Tami Mayberry. Tami has created the most easy to use calendar set and tonight the design team has put together even more inspiration for this set.

For my project I am sharing a November calendar I made. I printed out some digital paper I designed to coordinate with the Calendar Grid. I stamped the grid and numbers directly onto the framed area on the digital paper and then highlighted a few days using stamps from the Calendar Bits and Pieces set. I used Memento markers to ink up the cupcake for a two tone effect.

I embellished around the calendar with some leaf images from A Year of Leaves and added some punched shapes to the corners using my EK Success Curved Corner punch.

For more inspiration, please visit Calendar Bits and Pieces' illustrator, Tami Mayberry, then to the following Blog Hop Participants from the GinaK Designs team:

Your calendar is just perfect. I thought it was all layered. So very clever of you to design the perfect papers with the grid stamp. That makes calendar-making even easier and prettier now.
