I love the opportunity to make these cute calendar gifts.  I gave one to my mother last year, my stylist, several friends, and 1 for my craft room and 1 for my refrigerator.  These can be done free standing or flat with magnetic strips on the back.  You can decorate them as you wish.

11.21.18 Calendars 1, 2These 2 free standing calendars are both embellished with copper metallic foil.  The navy calendar has copper and navy flowers and the calendar is framed in copper.  The polka dotted calendar has a copper flourish adhered to the front and the calendar is also framed in copper.


11.21.18 Calendars 3,4I love the owl calendar.  It would be perfect for a guy – actually, it would be perfect for me!  In addition to the owl punch, we have the bird punch, fox punch, and cat punch.  The butterfly blue and peach calendar of soft and very calming




11.21.18 Colored CalendarThis is one of my favorites.  The front of the calendar features some of the beautiful heavy DSP I earned last year during the Sale-A-Bration period.  I really stacked up on this lovely paper.  In the image to the left, I colored all the flowers and leaves with Stampin’ Blends. The Spectrum Noir markers can also be used and have a much greater color selection.  The tricky part of coloring this DSP is that you need to let the ink dry.  I colored all my leaves first,  Then I started with the flowers on the inside and worked out.  As the flowers are embossed in copper, the calendar was also framed in copper

11.21.18 Single CalendarThis cute butterfly calendar has the same dimensions as the other calendars but is made horizontally instead of vertically.  The butterfly DSP was cut this way in error so if you choose to use this beautiful background, you will need to cut your cs horizontally. 




11.21.18 Side view calendarThis image shows the side view of the upright calendar.  Cut a cardstock base at 4 1/4" x 11", and score at 5-1/2". Fold the card in half and burnish the edge with a bone folder. Cut another piece of the same color cardstock at 4" x 4", and score at 1/2", 2" and 3 1/2".  Burnish the fold lines to create the easel.  Glue the 1/2” tabs to the inside of the card base.  You can see the glued easel in this side view.  If desired, adhere a piece of 5 1/4 X 4 white cs to the back face of the easel for your sentiment.  Prepare the card front as desired. Adhere 5 1/4 X 4 DSP or card stock to the calendar front.  The Taylored Expression mini calendars measure 3 X 2 1/4.  Adhere your calendar securely (I use liquid glue or Sticky Strip) to coordinating card stock that measures 3 1/4 X 2 1/2.  After allowing the calendar to dry, adhere it securely to the calendar front.  Adhere embellishments as desired. 

We have pre-cut a large assortment of DSP for the calendar fronts.  Daughter Debbie has volunteered to man the paper cutter and cut the calendar frames and easels from the card stock you choose.  You can choose to make up to 10 calendars or you can choose to make a lesser amount along with the other offerings.  Don’t forget to let me know if you may be coming – November 29th from 12 Noon – 7 PM, November 30th from 2 – 7 PM, and December 1st from 9 AM– 4 PM.
