you're on the right track, but if you stumbled onto the hop you might want to begin with Nikki
For a chance to get "with it" in 2013 the PPbN DT's are showcasing ideas on creating some practical projects that deal with the organization of something.
Mama LoveBug is up first today - I was once the woman who took my old calendar and faithfully re-recorded all the important dates on my new calendar...........not any more!! It's such a waste of time when one has a perpetual calendar to record one time the important dates of life (b-days, anniversaries, etc), so with that in mind, I made a Berry Sweet Perpetual Calendar using one of my personal favorite PPbN pattern collections, the Peanut Butter and Jelly Collection
The first 2 pictures show the finished project and the top portion of the calendar:
I fussy cut the peanut, the berry jar, and the sandwich parts. After constructing the base of the calendar with strawberry paper, I highlighted the elements with a gel pen and added Stickles for glitz. I stamped out several strawberries and the sentiment. I added an action wobble on the sandwich parts so Mr. Peanut Butter and Jelly will wobble (fun element). Lastly, I used LoveBug Creations Rumple Ribbon in two spots for more fun!!

HI EVERYONE!!!!Kimi here and I am quite possibly the MOST disorganized person I know...Esp when it comes to what I need to make for what Blog Hop/Challenge/Posting Day... So with that in mind I made two cute little notepads to help me remember my important crafty dates!
I used the PPbN Love Bears cutting file, paper from SherryK Designs, some pearls, plain white cardstock, my trusty Bind-It-All and my absolute favorite Lovebug Creations Rumple Ribbon in Strawberry Love & Dark Chocolate!
