Hello Friends! 

Welcome to the Creative Circle Design Team. This month features #imbringingbirthdaysback! This slogan was originated from Shannon West, Demonstrator Training Manager from SU HQ's. It's great to see you today!

If you come from Sandy's blog you are at the right place. If not, just keep hopping and eventually you will land back here again. 

The new 3D release that features #imbringingbirthdaysback! is a storage box for birthdays / anniversary cards as well as a calendar. When designing this new release I also wanted to show a calendar that sits on your desk while working on more cards. 

The calendar has two interchangeable blocks. You rotate them to display the day(s). I used the Number of Years framelits to cut the numbers out. To protect the blocks, you can spray acrylic protector on it to keep it lasting long. Oh by the way, the 9 is missing but if you turn the 6 upside down it makes the 9.

The months also rotate too. I used a binding machine to bind the months together, and if you don't have one, you easily use an O ring. You can also decorate each month whatever theme you wish.

As creativity gets going, add your finished card(s) to your collections. The card holder can hold up to 10 cards with envelopes. You can stand them horizontally or lay them vertically. And if you want to add a gift (ie: stamp set), it can hold that too.

I made some cards to go in with this release which I will show later on.

We invite you to join us today for an explosion of inspiration! Blog hop with us and comment at each stop along the way for a chance to win a Calendar/Card Box pattern. Winner will be announced on April 18.
