2013 Calendar

Caution: this is a photo-heavy post!! 

Today I am super excited to share a project that was in the making in the last little while. 
It is...2013 calendar
2013 (cover)
I combine my love of hexagon, stamps, SRM Stickers and Washi tape (all 18 rolls of Washi---not quite never enough!). This calendar pretty much sums up my card-making in 2012.

You will find Washi Tape, SRM Stickers and stamping in each and every page. 
So here it goes.....
2013 calendar
January: I tore up the Washi Tape to make an interesting ground for the embossed Newsprint Bird
February: A piece of pink stripe Washi tape was cut up for the hanging heart
2013 calendar1 
March: I embossed the kites onto the bright Target Washi tape and them cut them out. 
April: The large dotted green makes a pretty ground for the Pom Pom Flower
2013 calendar2
May: The small polka dot Washi Tape makes a lovely background .
June: The 2013 SRM Stickers was applied over the Japanese lacy Washy Tape. Butterflies were made with alcohol inks.
2013 calendar3
July: I did some patch work with the washi Tape and later dry embossed it with Swizz Dot. (I was going for the picnic look...)
August:  I created a bike scene with some stamping and Washi goodness
2013 calendar4
September: A piece of silver Washi compliments the school-themed month
October: A lot of stamping in this one---just love it. A small strip of brown Washi was used underneath the calendar sticker. Very subtle.
2013 calendar5
November: The lacey Japanese Washi tape adds a touch of elegance to the design.
December: An interesting foreground was created with a mix of Washi tape.

This is beyond awesome Virginia. The scenes you created each month are incredibly gorgeous. I think May is my favorite month...getting warmer outside, bikes are out, baseball is in full swing and getting ready for the summer.
