Ring in 2018!!! Send a calendar card.


There have been so many new posts about calendars, I was inspired to make one for a few friends.  I CASEd (Copy And Share Everything)  the idea from a post by Kelly Acheson, a Demonstrator from Menasha, WI.  She used the Beautiful Bouquet Bundle from the new January Occasions Catalog.

Since I promised to send ideas and a recipe for a new card each month I thought I  could get a head start for the new year with this calendar card idea.  I used Kelly’s idea, tweaked the dimension, changed the colors and the bundles.  Use your own color combinations and ideas for a cover and a back side.  This color combination spoke to me about a new season coming!  The flowers are from the Colorful Seasons Bundle which is so versatile for every season.  I used the wood grain DSP to cut the branches and hand colored the flowers.

Here is the link for the Calendar PDF

which needs to be printed on copy paper and each month cut 2 1/2″ x 2 1/4 “.  Then stack and staple together (try to keep the staples straight – mine are crooked)!!

Ah…such an early breath of spring is in the air!!!

Go here to get the complete  directions from Kelly’s post with pictures on how to make a beautiful calendar card.

End-of-Year-Blowout-IconOFFER EXTENDS THROUGH JANUARY 2018:  If you purchase the Colorful Seasons Bundle(p.147) or Beautiful Bouquet stamps( p.92), Bouquet Bunch Framelits (p, 213) directly from me and not through my website, you may deduct a 15% discount (*in addition to the 10% bundle discount)  if ordered by January 31st 2018.  I cannot discount the order if you order on line.
