2011 Calendars; Part 2 of 3 - and a Blog Hop!!

Here are the next 4 months...

I actually struggled with May the most! It's my very favorite month, but the 'page' just didn't look right. After adding some details, it ended up looking just fine!!!

The Happy Mother's Day Cut is from the Mother's Day cart, and Designer's Calendar cart for the May cut... We used the Martha Stewart Butterfly punch and a double bow to tie all the colors together. Can you see the daffodils in the background?

June definitely means Father's Day!! Three carts used on this page! Designer's Calendar, Wild Card, and Handy Man from the Cricut Lites. I didn't use my white pen as I meant to on the Happy Father's Day - there just wasn't time. Next time!!!

The July calendar used only 2 carts, but LOTS of techniques!! I used Designer's Calendar and Independence Day carts for the cuts, a double bow, and the color spritzer from Stampin' Up to spray red and blue speckles on the Freedom cut. We also used red stickles to highlight some of the hearts on the USA cut. Can you see the stars on the background??

August... Ah, summer!! How we look forward to the summer, and the swimming pool! As a kid we LIVED in our neighbor's swimming pool... what great memories!!
The August cut came from Designer's Calendar. The pool and Splish Splash came from the H2O Lite cart. I also used my Spellbinders Nesties to cut the background out of blue sparkle cardstock. No holidays in August to highlight, so a sun stamp right at the beginning!! Can you see the 'waves' in the background?

More info. on our Blog Hop on the 17th! It's COMING!
