To paint all the pieces in the set I used white acrylic paint mixed with Marina Mist reinker. I was attempting to match the lighter blue in the flowers and I think I got pretty darn close. I printed the calendar pages in Word. The clip comes with the kit and is decorated with Seam Binding and a flower from the retired Pretties Kit tinted with Marina Mist reinker. I colored a Basic Pearl with a Sharpie for the center. If you look closely you can see the leaf stem behind the flower. It was punched in Always Artichoke with the Two-Step Bird Punch.
For the memo holder I again used many of the same supplies as I did for the calendar. These alterable kits are so quick and easy to decorate. Plus they are a great way to use up your small scraps.
The final piece, or pieces, of the set are the little binder clips. They are probably the fastest and easiest items to make and are always a big hit as gifts or as craft fair items. Another great way to use up those small scraps.
