As this year ends, its time to think about 2023.  Our handmade calendars make wonderful holiday gifts and are perfect as as hostess thank you.  And a calendar only costs $3.00-$3.50.  What a bargain plus, it is handmade and comes from the heart. .We have card stock cut for the following samples.  However, you are welcome to choose other DSP and card stock combinations.

12.01.22 calendar mosaicThis sample features retired mosaic DSP along with Soft Suede and Mint Macaroon.  The numbers 2023 have been brushed with Wink of Stella and they provide a bit of glimmer. 

Basic white cs layers and envelopes are provided.  Stamped and hand written messages on the white cs are adhered to the back of the calendar.  And they fit perfectly in our A2 envelopes. 

12.01.22 Calendar birds

Our second sample  features Blackberry Beauty DSP with Cinnamon Cider and Blackberry Bliss card stock.  These easel calendars hold up extremely well. I have several that are 5-years old.  I adhere new calendars every year over the old ones, and change the last digit of the year or use some other image as decoration.

12.01.22 Calendar bees

Our gold and black bumble bee calendar is a take-off of the calendars we donated to 2 girl scout troops.  The girls are making the calendars as gifts for their parents.  The frame for the calendar is actually gold glimmer paper.  The numbers are cut from the Scan’n’Cut and show up well.

12.01.22 Calendar turquoise glitterOur final sample is a cyan triad of Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana and Pool Party DSP.  Wink of Stella was brushed around the edges of the Basic Black calendar frame.  The sparkly numbers provide the perfect added touch for this 2023 tribute.

Other cs and DSP choices will be available for your choosing.  We have a gorgeous black/white/gray pattern that would be a perfect masculine calendar. 

Our next card is for the person who cherishes their coffee, chocolates or cocktails. 

Please please let us know what your selections will be for December Stamp Camp.  With Thanksgiving upon us, Debbi and I are working diligently at cutting card stock and DSP.

12.01.22 Christmas Blessings12.01.22 Christmas Blessings msg layerChristmas Blessings is our final Stamp Camp Christmas card for 2022.  Once again, we see the Aspen Trees Dies but this time, in white.  A snowy Night of Navy background comes about with white embossed snowflakes and stars – a good time to practice your wet embossing skills.  3 red cardinals are perched jauntily on tree limbs.  A simple sentiment is layered on Night of Navy cardstock and festooned with a real red cotton bow.  This is a cheery classic Christmas card.

Our message layer is ready for you to stamp the holiday greeting of your choice.  Make sure to check out the Christmas messages as several new sets recently appeared.  3 red birds provide a festive touch. 

Our final 2022 Stamp Camp will be held Thursday, Friday and Saturday, December 1, 2, and 3 from 10am – 4pm.  Our first 2023 Stamp Camp will be February 2, 3 and 4.  The new Occasions Catalog and Spring Sale-A-Brations mini catalog will be coming out in December and will be available for ordering effective January 5, 2023. 

Stay tuned for some calendar samples available at the December Stamp Camp.  These make great holiday gifts.
