I'm so excited about tonight's Papertrey Ink group post....as you may know, I have a thing for creating Birthday Books....simply put, a beautiful place to record birthdays so that you've got them handy...well, Nichole's latest stamp set goes right along with what I already love to create, but in an easy and doable way....and then some.
I chose to focus on February for my project, but have a die cut page ready to go for each month of the year, all bundled up and waiting in an album. The set includes sweet stamps to mark important monthly dates such as birthdays, holidays, anniversaries, etc. Two different sizes of pre-printed calendars are available and are just waiting to be dressed up and made beautiful, and then of course a coordinating page die complete with tabs to hold the smaller pre-printed calendar, and rounded corners which add such a wonderful finishing touch. In addition to the Calendar Basics set I also used the Embellishments set and coordinating die to add a coordinating flourish.
I punched holes in the bottom of 12 glassine bags and will use them as pockets to hold a list where I can write birthdays for each month. I used Papertrey Ink's white notepad for this simple addition.
This set can easily go from creating calendar pages to creating cards for special occasions that come up each month. I made a matching anniversary card that can be used anytime I need a little something for someone special. The Simple Valentine paper pack created by Heather Nichols is perfect for anniversaries, weddings, babies, and Valentines Day.
I'm itching to finish this up....just for me...unless I give it to my mom :) I know for sure though that I will reach for this set over and over again. Love it....thanks Nichole!
There are many more ways to use this set and the other design team members are ready with their ideas:
Betsy Veldman, Dawn McVey, Debbie Olson, Heather Nichols, Lisa Johnson, Mish Wooderson, Niki Estes, Kim Hughes, Maile Belles, Erin Lincoln, and Nichole Heady.
Stay tuned for more Papertrey Ink goodness coming over the next few days!
