The challenge: Use an un-inked stamp set or one that you haven't used in a long time.
Response: Thank you for MAKING me finally make my Birthday Calendar with the Calendar Set. I bought this as a project for myself to keep all the birthdays and anniversaries organized and loved that it allowed room for a card or two in each pocket.
I kept the inserts clean and simple. I plan on using the inserts over and over each year and buying and decorating a new binder (since that is the most fun part!) as each year starts again.
Oh, how this set made this project a snap. I used a different PTI color for each month by cutting a strip the length of the insert. I used this strip to help place the month stamp above it (and under the center hole of the binder rings). Gosh, it turned out cute and exactly like I planned. Ummm, that doesn't happen too often....
So here it is: Best Part? Anything I find I don't like about the binder, I will change next year. I might add some buttons this year, though... I love buttons....
