Unveiling my 2010 Calendar!

Hi all! Hope you're week is off to a good start! I have a fun finale for you to wrap up a project I first brought you HERE on this post.

When Flourishes unveiled it's A Year of Flowers Calendar Sets, it knew that stampers far and wide would want to use these gorgeous florals to create floral inspired desk calendars. Well, my friends, that's what I did!

I thought I'd show you the first four months (using the A Year of Flowers Calendar Set 1) and how they turned out first... and tomorrow - I'll bring you the rest!

This set started with the fun downloadable calendar created by Marcella Hawley to match these floral sets perfectly! You can find the calendar HERE. From there, I grabbed Spellbinder's Fancy Tags, a classic oval die, some Copic Sets and some fun patterned paper!

For my Crocus creation, I used some Basic Grey paper from the June Bug collection and the Spring Green and Delphinium Copic Collections grouped by Flourishes. For my Primrose calendar, I used some striped dp that I had in my stash along with some green chalk around my flower. Then, I colored it up with Copics with the Daffodill Collection, Dahlia Collection and the Meadow Collection for my greenery.

My pansy was colored up with Spring Greens and Delphinium collections. The decorative paper is Basic Grey.

And last, but not least... my daffodils! I love, love, love this image and know I'll use it time and time again on its own. I used Basic Grey decorative paper and the Daffodill and Fields Copic Collections.

So, there my friends is the first few months ready for 2010! I think these images are just too classy and timeles -- who knows -- this might be my yearly trend -- just cut, color and enjoy! I should mention, this one made it into the hands of a great friend!

Tomorrow, I'll be back to show you my next set to wrap up the year! I have to tell you... excitement is brewing in my stamp room! Flourishes is getting ready for its sneaks starting Wednesday... so this blog will be a hoppin'!
See you back here soon!
