DT Challenge: SRM Calendars

calendar1 Today’s DT Challenge is sponsored by SRM Stickers and we’re highlighting their calendars.  I LOVE these things.  They make such amazing gifts. 

For my project I used some Decor Boardz that I picked up at a scrapbooking show and have been hoarding for about 5 years  I decided it was finally time to alter them! 

So, I mounted my calendar stickers on white cardstock and then used papers from Echo Park’s Victoria Gardens Collection Kit

Before I mounted it I added some scallops using my Scallop Edgeabilities (love those).  Then for some extra touches I added some Zva Flutter pearls and pearl flourishes.

To hold everything together (since it was going on non-paper, I used our very own i {stick} papers redline tape.  Did you know we have our very own redline tape?  60 yards rolls, made  specifically for IHP.  The adhesive system offers a secure bond even at elevated temperatures and was originally made for the mounting of ABS plastic parts in the car industry. It is also used for the mounting of decorative profiles and mouldings in the furniture industry. You can use this particular redline tape (they don't all have this property) was made to endure heat, you can emboss with it. Temperature Resistance: 392° F (short term) and 176° F (long term) How nuts is that? I don't think we're going to be playing with super high heat on our PAPER projects but that just goes to show you how strong and amazing this stuff is. And, at 24 cents a YARD, it can't be beat.

Lastly I used some Lace Pearl trim to hang it.
