Hello Stampin’ Friends,
Happy Friday to you … I don’t know about you, but I’m looking forward to the weekend!
We are all locked into times and dates and such and what better way to manage your busy schedule than a calender. According to Wikipedia; A calendar is a system of organizing days for social, religious, commercial or administrative purposes.
And that’s what I have for you today! I normally don’t share my retreat projects but I had many requests, so here is the calendar our group made at the 2014 Holiday Stampin’ Retreat.
This cute little calendar was designed to sit on your desk, kitchen counter or where ever it’s handy for you. I began by choosing my color pallet, and I started with the “All is Calm” Designer Series Paper.
The base is Smokey Slate and the pop of color is the Lost Lagoon. I created the monthly template myself and cut it out for my guests. They were held together by the Candy Dots Brad Bases. We added a Rhinestone and colored it with the Coastal Cabana Blendabilities marker.
The piece that holds up the calendar was embossed with the Woodgrain Embossing folder. Since were making calendars, and calendars are about occasions … I chose the “A Fitting Occasion” and stamped the “made by me for you” stamp, and punched it out with the 1″ circle punch. The Soft Sky mat was punched with the 1-1/4″ circle punch.
I finished off the calendar with a banner stating “You Made My Day” … from the “And Many More” stamp set! The calendar was designed to lay flat so it could be mailed … what a cute gift that would be to get in the mail 🙂
Hope you enjoyed my project share today. If you are interested in attending an upcoming stampin’ retreat, send me your information and I will gladly add you to my mailing list. We host a Spring (All Occasions) and Fall (Holiday) Retreat.
Our retreats are loads of fun and you not only make cards & projects … you make friends.
Thank you for stopping by Linda’s Stampin’ Escape today.
God Bless and …
