Center of Attention Product Spotlight - Frame Your Imagination Stand


Hi everyone! Happy Thursday!!

Once a month, half of the Baker's Dozen spotlights an awesome product available at Taylored Expressions, and today, I get to share with you what I have done with the AWESOME Frame Your Imagination Vertical Stand!!

These stands are made exclusively for Taylored Expressions and they are ready for you to decorate or alter anyway you would like! They are already sanded (I use to be a tole painter before I caught the stamping bug, and the fact that there is NO prep at all needed on this stand is AWESOME!!).

There are SO many things you can feature using the Frame Your Imagination Stand, and today, I have chosen to make a calendar for my kitchen counter using the 2011 6X6 Dated Calendar Download available at Taylored Expressions.

While there are endless ways to decorate these stands, I chose to keep it simple and simply painted my stand with black acrylic paint and then sprayed it with an acrylic sealer. Once that was done (and it took no time at all!), I concentrated on my calendar!

You can see from the finished picture of my Frame Your Imagination Vertical Stand, that I placed my finished calendar pages in 6X6 Page Protectors. These are AWESOME and for a full year calendar, you only need one set as you can use the front and back!! Bonus!

I created an entire years worth of calendar pages, but will only show you three months here (January is in the finished picture) today (unless you want to sit here @ my blog all day!!!).

I decided to have my beloved Cuppie (I just love him!) be the focus of my calendar, and there is no easier way than to use A Year of Sweets 1, A Year of Sweets 2, A Year of Sweets 3 and A Year of Sweet Sentiments all from Taylored Expressions!

To start, I printed out all 12 months of the 2011 6X6 Dated Calendar Download onto Choice Snow White Cardstock.

I then stamped the corresponding Cuppie for each month in Memento Tuxedo Black onto the left side of the calendar page.

All of the Cuppies were colored with Copic Markers and I added some of Taylor's Tiny Twinkles to select portions of the images.

A corresponding sentiment, stamped from A Year of Sweet Sentiments, was stamped over the name of the month on each page!

For a limited time, August 26-29, the Frame Your Imagination Vertical Stand is on sale @ Taylored Expressions for only $10.99!!! Here is a list of ideas that you can use in conjunction with the Frame Your Imagination Stand!!
