Frozen Treats / August 2011 Calendar Page

HAPPY AUGUST!!!!!  August is by far my FAVORITE month of the year.  I'm all about summer and I just love the warm August weather here in Michigan!

Today I'm sharing my August calendar page!  Since the 1st of August also falls on a Monday I decided to combine my calendar page with the Totally Stampalicious Challenge this week.  This week's challenge is to use some sort of Frozen Treat on your creation.  Keeping with the theme of my favorite things I chose ICE CREAM for my frozen treat.  I used the newly released Poppi Penguin stamp set for my image. The calendar was created Microsoft Excel.  The ice cream cones were made using the Stampin' Up scallop circle punch and a triangle that I cut free hand on my paper trimmer.  The calendar stand is from Taylored Expressions.

I also created a tutorial for making calendar pages.  You can find the tutorial just below this post.

Here's a link to the Totally Stampalicious Blog where you can find some more fabulous frozen treat inspiration!

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my frozen treats calendar page!

Julie,I love those ice cream cones and what a great way to make them. Your calendar pages are always great. About August, it will be sweltering here and the humidity will just about kill us. But, just the same, I'm with you...I'm a summer kind of girl. Already dreading winter.
