So! Happy September! I can’t believe this has come around so fast! This calendar page is one of my favorites. When the Holiday Catalog came out last fall, there was a stamp set called “Cheers to the Year” (now retired) that was meant for New Year’s. Images of sparklers and wreaths for the holidays… but, I LOVED the shapes. The two different (what were supposed to be wreaths) circles had fabulous ‘texture’ and I really enjoyed putting them together to make some fun geometric patterns.
So, you can see here, the colors are light enough that they can be stamped over the text in the calendar and it still works. The colors I used were Bermuda Bay, Night of Navy, and Lemon Lime twist. The picture lighting isn’t the best but the cardstock is navy as well.
Happy September to you! Head on over to see what Anne and Cheryl have for you!
I love a good Kansas Summer evening… that comes complete with the magical presence of FIREFLIES I just LOVE them. It’s so pretty to look out across the yard and see the little bits of glowing floating around in the trees. So, when this Jar of Love stamp set came out I KNEW IMMEDIATELY it was going to have to be in my calendar. And that it had to be for JUNE.
So, the colors in this month are very simple. The pink is the flirty flamingo. I used Sahara Sand to stamp the jar, handle, and fireflies. (A tiny bit of masking with a post-it to make the bow not be too big for the jar neck). And, then I colored the fly behinds with the daffodil marker and added a smudge of wink of stella (Stella doesn’t like it’s picture taken apparently…so hard to get it to show up on photographs…)
Now I can have my fireflies in Hawaii…

I don’t know why, but this set reminds me of the “April Showers Bring May Flowers” little rhyme. It doesn’t make any sense at all, cause there are NO SHOWERS here, but still. Maybe all the blue. No idea. But I love it.
I LOVE this Swirly Bird stamp set. So many ways to do t hings with this. You can use the flower images as nice backgroud fillers or you can use them as centerpieces in the design. I love the different blues. Soft sky and pool party give the different blue variations. And, of course Daffodil adds the pop of stand-out color. Perfect for spring time.

Hard to believe it is time to welcome another year!! I always start working on these calendars in October of the previous year, and it seems SO far away at the time… but wow… it sure sneaks up quick.
I’m very excited about this year’s calendar! I think you will enjoy it! We had some fun sets to use…
Doesn’t this cover just make you NEED one of these perched up up on your desk?? A little bit of smile just staring at you each and every day of the year…(FYI, I have a handful of these calendars left… but you better act fast before they are gone.)
Of course, for January, we needed something to WELCOME the year, so I thought the use of the Dotty Angles stamp made a great New Year’s Confetti Drop…
The stars are the punch outs from the star confetti border punch… The fine tipped glue pen makes gluing them down a breeze… Celebrate comes from the Celebrate Today Stamp Set. It works perfectly here.
Hope you are able to celebrate the coming of the new year with those you love… Hug them tight. 🙂 Wishing you much joy in the coming year.
