Hello, and welcome to the December Stampin’ Up! Trip Achiever Blog Hop. We’re so glad you joined us. As a group, we’ve worked our Stampin’ Up! businesses enough to earn the Annual Incentive Trip. This is no small accomplishment; less than 1% of demonstrators worldwide achieve this. The stampers in this group come from different countries around the world. Be sure to visit all of the participating stampers to gain a host of crafting inspiration. Look for a list of hoppers at the end of this post.
The year 2024 is just around the corner! So that means it’s time to create some fun, handmade desktop calendars. I love to make these every year and give them as gifts. Today, I show you a version that includes a notepad. The layout follows the same principles as an easel card.
Petal Park 2024 Desktop Calendar
I love this project because you can use a variety of stamps, inks, and papers to create individualized calendars for your friends and family. Check back this week to see other themes I’ve created.
Here are a few basic directions:
- Boho Blue 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: Night of Navy card stock measuring 5 1/4 x 4, Countryside Inn Designer Series Paper measuring 5 x 3 3/4, Boho Blue measuring 3 1/2 x 3 1/2. Add notepad.
- Calendar layer measurements: Night of Navy card stock measuring 5 1/4 x 4, Countryside Inn Designer Series Paper measuring 5 x 3 3/4, Boho Blue card stock measuring 3 1/2 x 2 3/4. Add calendar.
- Created the flowers using Stampin’ Up!’s Petal Park stamp set and coordinating Petal Park Builder Punch with Night of Navy and Boho Blue Classic Stampin’ Ink Pads. The sentiment comes from the Easter Bunny stamp set. And, the label is die cut with Basic White card stock from the Countryside Corners Dies. Stamped with Night of Navy ink. Added pearls to the flowers.
Here’s another version using the Ink Botanicals Designer Series Paper, Petal Park stamp set, Petal Park Builder Punch, and the sentiment from Playing the Rain (heat embossed with white embossing powder).
