Calendar Grid and Calendar Bits and Pieces Blog Hop

Can you believe it, two more great sets from Tami Mayberry for Gina K. Designs? I am going to keep my description brief as there are several of us who are previewing this set tonight and you won't want to miss a thing! I stamped my Calendar Grid/Month and numbers in Adirondack Espresso ink on PL Ivory cardstock. I also stamped the Christmas Topiary from Nina's Lord of the Season set in the lower corner of the grid with Adirondack Espresso ink. All coloring is with Copic markers, the little swirlies and the star on the tree were colored with Gold Spica glitter pen. I added some gem and pearls (that were colored w/Copics) to the tree for a finishing touch. The cardstock, ribbon and hardware are all from my stash! Yeah! The finished size of this calendar page is 8 x 8.

For some helpful tips on how to use the Calendar Bits & Pieces and Calendar Grid stamp sets, please be sure to check out Gina's blog and StampTV for a helpful video on just how quick and easy it can be to use! Both of these sets as well as the PDF version of the Calendar Grid image will be available for purchase tonight over on our online store.

After that, stop by our Illustrator's blog - Tami Mayberry for some projects with her timely stamp sets.

Here are the GinaK Designer Member's links who are joining us in the preview tonight:
