Doggone Friendly 2024 Desktop Calendar

In just a few days, the calendar rolls over to 2024! Let’s celebrate with some fun handmade, desktop calendars. (See this past post for a couple of other cute designs.)

Today’s calendar design features a sneak peak from Stampin’ Up!’s January-April 2024 Mini Catalog. The Doggone Friendly stamp set is perfect for any and all dog lovers. You can purchase it beginning January 4, 2024, when the catalog goes live. (#162729–$20)

This full background stamp suits all of our family well! Don’t you just love all of the dog faces? So many breeds to choose from. I created this calendar for my sister who has a Boston Terrier named Reggie.

  • Basic Black card stock base measures 4 1/4 x 11, scored at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2
  • Layer for the base of the calendar: Real Red card stock measuring 5 1/4 x 4, Basic White measuring  5 x 3 3/4, stamped with the Doggone Friendly stamp set with Memento, Basic Black measuring 3 1/2 x 3 1/2. Add notepad.

  • Created the focal piece by stamping the Doggone Friendly stamp set with Memento on white and die cutting the dog I wanted to feature with a circle from the Stylish Shapes Dies. Layered this on a circle punched with Real Red card stock. Added a bow from the Baker’s Twin Essentials Pack. Finished it off with three Black Matte Dots. 

I know my sister will love this calendar, especially when it features her dog.
