Hello and Happy New Year, everyone!
It's Nancy here with you today!
I'm thrilled to be sharing my very first post as a member of the Robin's Nest Design Team!
I'll be here twice a month to share some ideas with you on how to use these fabulous products!
One thing I like to do each year is create fun calendar pages.
With my first post being so early in a brand new year,
it seemed appropriate to begin a series of calendar page posts.
Here is my January Calendar page:
For those of you that don't know...I live in Saskatchewan, Canada.
This page is perfect for my January.
Isn't all the frosty sparkle pretty?
Here's how I made it:
I always begin with a 5 x 7 chipboard base.
Then I gathered all the paper elements that I wanted to use, along with my little calendar circle.
These are all from the Simple Stories - Snow Fun Digital Collection.
Then I pulled out all of my frosty dew drops. Here's what I used on my project:
Just for your information...this is the stand that I'm using for my calendar pages.
It's a 7gypsies Vintage Stand - 5 x 7 Vertical.
I cut the background paper down to 5 x 7 and adhered it to the chipboard.
I inked all the edges, and adhered everything in place.
I used foam tape for the snowman and the tags to add some dimension.
Then I proceeded to add all the Dew Drops, Tear Drops, and Diamond Tear Drops,
on top of all of the wonderful snowflakes.
Do you think there are enough of them?
I even added two of the Shimmer Diamond Dew Drops over the heart on the "I heart Winter" tag.
Here's another angle.
I just love how those clear Raindrops Dew Drops sparkle!
Here's one final look at the finished page.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
I'll be back with another project idea in a couple of weeks.
Then next month I'll have my February Calendar page for you!
In the meantime, you can come visit me over at my blog The Nickel Nook!
