New Calendar, New Theme...

Hi Everyone!
This is a new version of my perpetual calendars using a "wood" circle as the base. It is smaller scale than the typical calendars I create but jam packed with just as much unique charm. When Ormolu was looking for a few interim design team members, I made this in hopes of "wowing" them. Even though I didn't make the cut, I had so much fun incorporating lots of the Ormolu products into my piece....the fabulous/fun 2-Day Hooray Days of the Week & Number Flair Buttons as well as the Line & Letter Chevron Tags. Rather than creating the grid, I used this calendar grid stamp from Stampin' Up that worked perfectly. To spice it up a bit, I added washi tapes from Martha Stewart, K&Co Smash, Cavallini & Ki Memories' Hot Date.

For presentation, when taking pictures I enjoy adding props as a backdrop. Aren't these vintage tartan plaid cannister/coolers so fun? I picked them up at a yard sale a few months back. They totally make me think of summertime and picnics. Speaking of picnics, Paper Issues has a new theme up: Picnics & Patriots! Since Independence Day is right around the corner, what a perfect time to share your 4th of July and/or picnic projects. Not only could your fab project be featured at Paper Issues, Cassie has a wonderful giveaway from Pink Paislee's newest patriotic collection, Declaration. Aren't these papers so dreamy?
