Good morning everyone!  It's day one for TE sneak peeks and we have some super cute ideas for the New Year using various calendar products available at the TE store.  I've made a page for January using Moka Kristie, which is part of the Moka collection illustrated by Nancy McKinney.  TE has lots of Moka images and you would be able to make an entire Moka calendar! 

I stamped Kristie in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored her with Copic markers.  I've also used the Frame It Up 1 die to create a fun little background for her to stand out over.  The pearly accents were made using a Cream Pearl Pen.

Here's a side view of how the calendar stand sits.  The Desktop Calendar Set is similar to the CD style calendars, but these cases allow more room for both the calendar and your stamped artwork. The set includes one case and one set of 12 pre-printed calendar pages for $5.95.  Case size is 4.37" x 7.52" x 0.32" and the insert size is 4.21" x 7.24"

Here are the Taylored Dies I used today:
