I thought I would share with you something a little different today.
I am getting ready for a Christmas Fair which will be held in December. I am excited about this as I’ve never done one since moving here but have been told it is well attended by the community.
I created a sheet of small calendars on my pc before cutting them down to the size I wanted. They actually measure 7cm x 7cm.
I adhered a piece of “Have a Cuppa” DSP Stack (Retired) to a piece of Whisper White before adhering to a Bermuda Bay Base.
The Calendar was layered onto a piece of Melon Mambo & then onto the DSP.
For the inside, I adhered a piece from the same Stack onto a piece of Melon Mambo & then to the Base – Bermuda Bay.
Until next time, Happy Stampin’
Today’s share is my first calendar for 2015. It is getting to that time of the year & with a market coming up this Sunday, thought it would be great to make a start on my calendars for next year. I enjoy creating them & find them to be very popular.
To download a free copy of the A5 Landscape 2015 Calendar, please click on the link at the bottom of this post.
To create my calendar, I printed out the year onto A5 photo copy paper, trimmed back a little from both sides, as I like a little of the coloured Card to be showing all around the edge. I punched 2 holes with the Handheld 1/16″ Circle Punch at the top of the calendar & inserted a Mini Brad into each hole.
For the top of the calendar, I stamped 3 flowers from the Flower Shop Stamp Set, coloured with Coastal Cabana & Rich Razzleberry Blendabilities, added small dots with the White Stampin’ Chalk Marker before punching out with the Pansy Punch.
I adhered small strips of Coastal Cabana Card to a piece of Rich Razzleberry DSP prior to adhering to a piece of Whisper White Card & finally to a piece of Rich Razzleberry Card which I had cut back to 8 1/4″ x 9″.
The “2015” was printed onto a scrap of Whisper White Card, punched with the Large Oval Punch & adhered to a piece of Coastal CabanaCard which has been punched with the Scallop Oval Punch prior to adhering to top of calendar.
The flowers were adhered to the calendar top – centre one with a Stampin’ Dimensional & the other 2 with Multipurpose Glue.
To complete the calendar, the months were adhered to the bottom of the Rich Razzleberry Card leaving a small edge around all 4 sides. Pearls were adhered to the centre of each flower as well as randomly scattering around the top of the calendar.
Be sure to check back over the next couple of weeks, as more will be added, including different calendar sizes.
Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Products used to create Calendar –
I have been having little plays again & come up with a little pressie for a friend. I know she doesn’t look on here, so am safe to post.
The only part of the project is the stamp set “Just Beachy” from Stampin’ Up! but I just love the paper, which I have had sitting in my supplies for about a month now & thought it time it got used.
Calendar, Box & Cards
This little calendar is in the shape of a card, but will stand on your desk by itself. I have used one for years & always make myself one each year. I also made a lot for little xmas pressies this year.
I have also made little envelopes to match the note cards, but you are unable to see them in the picture.
I did forget to mention that I am doing 2 extra classes in January for a Calendar 2010 – as per samples. These have magnets on the back for putting on the fridge.
When booking your spot, could you please let me know which one you would prefer to do, so that I can ensure I have ordered enough stock.
