Taylored Expressions Calendar Challenge January

Hey everyone!  I'm excited to be introducing a new challenge for Taylored Expressions using all of the new calendar products in conjunction with TE stamps and accessories!  Today I am using the Perpetual Occasions Calendar, and I'm so excited to be using it.  I'm absolutely horrible with birthdays and this will be a great handmade treasure I can keep to remember what special occasions are forthcoming. 


My favorite was decorating the cover.  :)  I have decided to use the papers from the Sidewalks 8x8 pad cause I just loooove them!  I think they are versatile enough to make adorable pages throughout the calendar.  Check it...


I used the Snowflake Wreath stamp set...perfect for January snowflakes!  I stamped it with Baja Breeze ink and then die cut it out with the coordinating Seasonal Wreath die.  Let me tell you, this was a perfect fit for these smaller sized "title pages."  Oh!  I also die cute a felt piece with one of the Winter Wonderland Snowflake dies.  Very cute in person I swear!  Snowflakes were then stamped all around the borders of the page. 

Now you will definitely want to stop by Taylor's Blog for more details on the challenge, because there is a pretty AWESOME prize for playing along with us! 

Now you can hop along and visit the rest of the designers playing along this month. :)
