Inky Antics CC Binding System Blog Hop

Good Morning Everyone, Happy Thursday!!!! Welcome to the Inky Antics Blog Hop!!! If you have arrived from Jovi's Blog you are in the right place if not you might want to start back at the beginning at Keri's Blog so you don't miss anything along the way!! This Blog Hop starts today and ends on July 3rd Midnight Central Time.....

Today the Inky Antics Designers are showcasing this FABULOUS Carla Craft Binding System!!!




A little bit of info about this FAB product:

WOOHOO a spiral coil binding system that is portable, inexpensive, and super easy to operate!!!! OOOO I love this thing :)))) You will just LOVE the pretty colors available for the coils!!!! I just had to have every color teehee :)))

The Carla Craft Binding System will punch up to five sheets of copy paper or two sheets of cardstock at a time, It will also punch through lightweight chipboard so you can have sturdy covers or make a fun project...You can make any size booklet or project up to 12 inches long......

I had a blast working with this awesome binding system....Today I would like to share a fun calendar I made for my desk using this fab product, Hope you enjoy!!!







I had a blast making this, I used my one of my FAVORITE paper pads by My Mind's Eye Lime Twist and I couldn't forget to add one of my favorite animals on my calendar as well, this darling Monkey image from Inky Antics.

For my creation, I started with a 6x12 piece of chipboard and scored it at 5, 6, and 7 to make my calendar base. I used the Carla Binding System to punch the chipboard and all this fun designer papers. I used my su scallop border punch to give each month a border. I printed a yearly calendar by month and dress them all up with My Minds Eye matching twine and a matching butterfly using my Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch. I then used my Viva Decor Pearl Pen to make dots on each of my butterfly centers :)

This was just so much fun and now I have a calendar on my desk with my FAV colors!!!!

Hope you enjoyed my project today!!!!
