Taylored Expressions November Sneak Peeks Day 1 - Calendars

Welcome to Day 1 of Taylored Expressions November Release! We will be exploring the theme of gift-giving this month. I will be starting out today with ideas for calendars. We have a  new Display Easel Die that fits the mini tear off calendar with design above or use the ledge in order to display the 3x4 calendar months.

The easel was easy to put together with the Display Easel Die and Toffee Cardstock. 

For my calendar project I am using the 3x4 Calendar Set, month May through August along with the new Calendar Grumplings Stamp Set. The stamp set includes a Grumpling for each month along with a sentiment. The sentiment is die cut with the new Double Ended Flag Stacklets. I used the Mini Bloomers 2 and Bloomers Greenery dies to add the flowers and leaves. I added Enamel Shapes to the center of the flowers. 

Here's a look at June. All my Grumplings are colored with Copic Markers and then die cut the coordinating Calendar Grumplings Dies

I add flip flops with the Little Bits - Flip Flop Die. 

I had to go red, white, and blue for July. 

I used Enamel Shapes to add the stars.

Here is August!

I used the Little Bits - Sun and Clouds to create the sun.
