Desk Calendars


I am making a few of these little desk calendars to send out to people who have sent me unexpected cards and to a few other people as well. I will make them up in various colours etc. These stand alone and are great as you can send them totally finished in an envelope and don't take very long at all to make.


I just notice that I have placed the calendar layers on crooked - oh nooo. I have used the SU Bali Breeze DSP and layered that on Taken with Teal. The flowers have been stamped on more of the DSP and cut out. The stamp set used is Embrace Life.


Leigh thank you for the idea of using the spiral punch here.


Hi to everyone in SCS Bloggers Group #7. I look forward to visiting your blogs often and seeing everyone's different styles of work. I get great inspiration from surfing others' blogs.

Glad you managed to get the calendars done Jean. I can't take the credit for the spiral punch edge. That was what Karen had done with hers when we all did her workshop way way back when.
