Happy New Year's Eve!! My family and I looked forward to this holiday so much! Personally, I just *love* new "stuff"! LOL! I love new years, new days, meeting new people....and NEW stamps ((grin))!! Speaking of new stamps, I've got some really cute ones to show you today!!
In my list of "new" things that I love...I would definitely have to include calendars! And this new perpetual calendar from Taylor is SO clever! I love how there is a space to decorate...but it isn't as long as the whole calendar. It really is perfect! On January 2nd (at midnight), Taylor is releasing some really, really fun new stamps and today the Baker's Dozen DT gets to show you a "peek" of one of them!! Below, are two pages that I made with the new A Year of Sweets 1 and A year of Sentiments sets.
This first page showcases the stamp for February. (Is it just me, or are all of you getting excited about making Valentine's Day stuff too?) :-) I stamped the image on White Choice c.s. (this is new from Taylor...it's 100lb c.s. that is just a dream to color on ), colored with my Copics, and then used my circle Nestabilities to cut/emboss it. I mounted it on a piece of background paper, added a ribbon (both the ribbon and paper are from this month's Key Ingredients pack), and some Stickles to bling it up a little! :-) I also added some hearts on the calendar page itself (I just stamped the same stamp onto patterned paper and cut out just the hearts).
For my March page, I stamped the image for March (also from A year of Sweets 1) onto White Choice c.s., colored it in with Copics, and cut out around it (I wanted to keep the shape of the rainbow as the main image). I mounted it on some patterned paper (also from the Key Ingredients pack), added a sentiment tag (from the new A Year of Sentiments set), and some punched out flowers (I thought they could look like 4 leaf clovers also :-) and some rhinestones. Oh yeah...I added Stickles to this image as well (like that's a shocker, huh?)! :-)
