Where Did July Go????

Supplies: Stamps: Stampendous  Paper: SU riding hood red, blue cs unknown, white Ink: Memento tuxedo black Accessories: Martha star punch, SU scallop circle punch, 1 3/8 inch circle punch, clear gems, red gems, I colored the blue gems with a copic markers, calendar case

Wow, where is our summer going?!  I missed July, and now we are halfway through August!  Before you know it I'll be back into my busy school routine.  We have gotten a lot of projects done this summer which is probably why it seems like summer is flying by, but it is great to have accomplished so much.  During the school  year I I don't have a lot of extra time, and if I do I of course want to spend it stamping! :)

For the July calendar I used the positive and negative space of a Martha Stewart star punch.  I punched the star punch, then cut it out with the 1 3/8 inch circle punch.  I matted it onto a starburst that I made using the SU scallop punch.  I punched out the scallop circle, attached it to a post it note, and I lined it up in the scallop circle again inside the punch turning it so the points of the scallops were in the center of my scallops and I punched it.  This created a nice starburst look.  I added lots of gems, and the red stars are from the MS punch as well.
Supplies: Stamps: Stampendous, Amuse  Paper: X press it white and pink scraps  Ink: Memento tuxedo black  Accessories: SU scallop border punch, copic markers, stamp a ma jig, calendar case
Isn't that bumblebee just adorable?!  Stampendous really makes cute bee stamps!  For the sentiment I stamped each line separate because it was too long to fit onto the calendar.  So I relied heavily on my stamp a ma jig for this.  I would hold my breath each time I stamped a line hoping I applied even pressure because I already had my calendar printed and image colored!  It was my lucky day I got it on the first try.

Well I'm caught up with my calendars, and have made a few more so I am ready as those months creep up on me! :)  Thanks for stopping by!
