Hey, everyone! It's time for the 2023 Calendar release at Taylored Expressions! It might seem early for 2023 calendars, but when crafting is involved, it's never too early to get started on creating! I created a matching desktop calendar and card set using a few of the new products to share with you today.
The new products for the release are available to purchase RIGHT NOW in the Taylored Expressions webstore!
I used the new Clipboard Calendar Cards – In the Word set and foiled the printed cards with Silver Deco Foil using a Minc machine (a heat laminator works to foil as well). The images on the cards are colored using Copic markers, Prismacolor pencils, and Gamsol to blend the colored pencil. The panel for the desktop calendar has a background stamped with the Diagonal Diamonds Background stamp and features a Calendar Card at the top and a 2023 Mini Tear-Off Calendar at the bottom that is adhered to layers of cardstock cut out with the new Mini Tear-Off Calendar Stacklets die collection.
The Walnut Wood Clipboard Stand is the base for the desktop calendar and you simply clip the calendar panel to the stand using the clip at the top. I chose one Calendar Card to display year round, but you could use magnets, velcro, or the clip at the top of the stand to swap out cards throughout the year too. Each month, the calendar can be changed by simply tearing off the page from the previous month!
While the Calendar Cards were designed for our calendar collection at TE, you can use them to create cards as well! I added the cards to backgrounds stamped with the Diagonal Diamonds Background stamp and framed the design using the largest frame from the Frame in Frame 2 Cutting Plate die. A few Bits & pieces - Clear Drip Drops are the finishing touch.
The desktop calendar and a matching set of cards is a great gift idea!
