It’s the 5th of the month – time for another Creative Circle Blog Hop! You may have hopped on over from Fran’s blog
, or perhaps you’re just joining us. Either way, I’m glad you’re here!
This month, we are showcasing Liz’ Perpetual Birthday Calendar. She’s nicknamed it #imbringingbirthdaysback in honor of the grass roots movement that Shannon West of Stampin’ Up! started. (If you’d like to know more about the movement, stop back in a day or two and I’ll explain…) For my version, I’ve used the color scheme of Blackberry Bliss, Bermuda Bay, and Delightful Dijon – all colors that are found in the patterns of the Bohemian DSP pack. I’ve paired my calendar with a suite of cards using the same color scheme and DSP pack and the Happy Birthday, Everyone stamp set. Here’s my ensemble:
The pattern for the calendar is probably one of my very favorite 3D items that we’ve played with to date! It’s got a lot of pieces, but it went together really easily. I just LOVE that it’s got a place in the back to store things like a set of cards, or perhaps a pad of paper and pen to keep near the phone.
The pattern for this project can be found in Liz’ online store, and as with all her designs, it has a companion video showing you how to assemble your cut pieces. It’s offered in both an e-cutter format as well as .pdf. When you make your project, the first cube is numbered with 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and the second cube is numbered with 0, 1, 2, 6, 7, 8. Where’s the 9, you ask? You use the 6 and turn it upside down!
Time to send you off to see Sandy’s version of the calendar. Make sure you leave a comment – Sandy is going to be doing a random drawing for a free copy of the pattern! Thanks for visiting!
In case you get off-track, our hop this months is:
