Calendar Blog Hop


If you are here for Tanya's Surprise Birthday Blog Hop, click here

Welcome to the Calendar Blog Hop! I am really excited about this blog hop for various reasons.   This is actually my first self hosted blog hop and I have a great group of ladies that are joining me!!  I don't know about you, but I can't wait to see their projects! I also have some awesome blog candy to give away thanks to Ms. Emma from My Creative Time, the Whimsical Calendar Day Stamp set! Here's what it looks like:


I actually used this set for my project today and just to help the winner even more, I am including the matching die:


To be eligible to win, you must be a follower of my blog and must comment on all the participating blogs.  I will choose a winner on Monday morning.  Here is a list of the participants:



Now on to my project.  I had so much fun creating this.  This was my first in many areas.  I have never created a mini album and I have never used the cinch which I have had for almost a year. I made this mini album with a love theme.  I must warn you, this is very picture heavy... so I apologize in advance (although I didn't take pictures of every single page to save you all some time!)













These are the products that I used:
Echo Park cardstock (Victoria Garden and Be Mine)
American Crafts Ribbon
EK Success Adornment fibers
My Creative Time Banner Kit and Whimsical Calendar Days stamp sets
Close To My Heart Frames, Tags and Borders stamp and banner and mixed shapes chip board
Kinderstampo Vintage Love and Say it in Type stamp sets
Coordination and Recollections cardstock
The Twinery twine - charcoal and blossom
Creative Memories Tag punch
Black chipboard
Cinch

I added a pink bling to special days such as Valentines day, Christmas and New Years as well as some space for journaling.  This is a great album to give as a gift for a couple.  It is for sale so if you are interested, please feel free to send me an email at scrappyzeni at gmail dot com.

I hope you enjoyed it! Now keep on hopping to the wonderful Pam from Lovebug Creations! Don't forget to leave a comment on all the blogs to be eligible to win the stamp and die set from My Creative Time!

Have a wonderful weekend!

great calendar book.

Lovely project. The tags are great. I can so relate to your first use of binding machine story. I have had one for a couple of years and have only used it about 4 times :)
