My 2013 Calendar ~ Shop Pumpkin Spice Blog Hop

Hi There! Welcome to Luv Scrapping Together!
Happy New Year, Pumpkin Spice fans! Welcome to the to the first Shop Pumpkin Spice Blog Hop of the New Year! We have some new designers with us this year and you are in for a big treat!

It's, also, exciting because Pumpkin Spice is hosting its very first challenge! There will be a new challenge every Saturday on the Pumpkin Spice Blog and you will have a week to complete a project and link up. All linked projects will be eligible to win a monthly prize from the Shop Pumpkin Spice store.

If you have arrived here from Carissa's blog: Happily Ever Paper Crafter then you are in the right place. If you just happened upon my blog and would like to start from the beginning then head on over the the Pumpkin Spice Blog.

The Pumpkin Spice Challenge for this week is: Create a project that makes you think of the New Year.

For my project I created a 2013 calendar. I will be sharing a few pages with you today and I will share the rest on January 10th, here and on the Pumpkin Spice Blog. I didn't want to overwelm you with too many pictures. :)

I used several different paper pads for my pages and most of my embellishments have come from Shop Pumpkin Spice. I will list the items used for each page with direct links to the product.

I cut all the pages from Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge and I bound the calendar with my Bind-It-All. All my lettering was cut from the Opposites Attract Cricut cartridge. I welded the letters and numbers together using my Gypsy and covered them all with Ranger Glossy Accents. I was able to download the actual calendar with dates from Papercrafts Magazine.

This first picture is of the cover to my calendar.
