This week I have been busy making projects for the upcoming Royal Blog Tour and my Stamp-a-Stack tomorrow so I have no Cricut project for ya tonight. Instead, I have a lovely calendar project for you. For our Stamp-a-Stack, we are going to make 2 different style cards and a calendar project (4 of each card and 4 months).
MeMe, if you are looking at this, shame on you!! Look away!! I would like to take a moment and tell you about all the cool little things Stampin’ UP offers for making your own little calendars.
I am a very organization-loving, calendary, list-making kind of girl and Stampin’ Up offers a bunch of organizing style supplies so it makes me happy!! I am sure I am not the only one out there who loves that type of thing so I wanted to take a second and point out some of the cool things. Below is a bunch of their calendar offerings.
This is a 6X6 calendar project and it is super easy to put together. These are intended to be hung on the fridge or someplace so you can easily see. The squares are pretty small so they wouldn’t be ideal for writing in a bunch of events, but they would be perfect for just knowing the date and the major events that are coming up.
I made this sample one for August:
My calendar is Summer sun to coordinate with the new Kaleidoscope paper. This is one of my fave new papers from the catalog. I have a paper kit available in my store at www.samiville.com. I decorated my calendar with the Razzle Dazzle stamp set (flowers and the quote).
The calendar base was made with the Stampin’ UP Calendar stamp. This is a large stamp, shown below:
Then, I just added the month using the stamp of choice from the Stampin’ UP Full Callendar stamp set:
Now, I just wrote in my own numbers for the dates, but Stampin’ UP offers this convenient stamp set that includes the numbers along with a matching alphabet set. This set is called Calendar Alphabets & Numbers stamp set. This would be great to have if you were going to make calendars to give to friends or family members, say, for the holidays.
And last but not least, Stampin’ Up has this cute little set to decorate your calendars with. This set is apropriately called Cute Cues:
