Thank you all so much for your support! I've had so many lovely emails and comments from you gorgeous people. I've had Demonstrators offer to place an order through me (so sweet, but of course I said no!) and customers of other Demonstrators offer to place a one-off order through me, just as a thank you "for providing so much Inspiration on my Blog" (she had to twist my arm, but I eventually said OK to that one!). So thank you! As you can see I still have a LONG way to go, but I'm just trying to take one day at a time. At least at the end of this I'll know I've given it my best shot!
In the meantime, I guess I'd better get on with providing some of that Inspiration to you all!
This is the Calendar we made at my Open House in January:
It's an easel card, which I thought would be perfect for displaying a calendar. So super quick and simple, so it would be a terrific one to mass-produce, and easy enough for even kids to do (attention all you school teachers out there!). I went with the stylish colour scheme of Basic Black, Baja Breeze and Whisper White. I love a black, white and one-other-colour combo! Try it next time you're stuck for a colour combination.
Not much explanation required here, just straight stamping (Butterfly Prints from the Mini and Vintage Labels Sale-a-Bration Set) and punching (Wide Oval, Designer Label and Butterfly). I used a Rhinestone brad for the centre of the butterfly. The sentiment has been popped up on Dimensionals so it holds the easel in place.
I got the calendars from a educational craft supplies company. Most of them get the calendars in just before Christmas.
