Season of Chic Desktop 2023 Calendar

This is one of those projects I make each year: a desktop calendar. It’s fun to change the patterned paper and designs and to add a special quote or image.

The DIY desktop calendars with Post It Note pads are easy to create and to personalize. From co-workers to relatives to hostesses and bridge group buddies, these homemade calendars make great gifts and stocking stuffers for everyone.

The calendar featured at the top of this post offers a sneak peek of Designer Series Paper you can earn free during the upcoming SaleABration promotion in January and February of 2023. I paired the Dandy Designs 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper with a sentiment from the Season of Chic stamp set (available in Stampiin’ Up!’s Annual Catalog) and the Something Fancy Dies (soon available in the January-April 2023 Mini Catalog).

The above calendar uses patterns from the Butterfly Kisses 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper (Stampin’ Up!’s Annual Catalog) and a butterfly die cut from the Brilliant Wings Dies (also Annual Catalog).
