Shelly Godby shared a checkbook cover that got me thinking. I used Paisleys & Posies to stamp a cover for a calendar which slips into those checkbook covers. The calendar I made with regulars stamping group has their birthdays, my planned Paper Play dates, the dates for the Stampin’ Up! catalogs and OnStage events, the usual holidays, and also some fun dates like International Lefthander’s Day and National Go Barefoot Day. I’m giving calendars to my family with all their birthdays too. Here’s a link for the 2017 Pocket Calendar insert with no birthdays. You could certainly print one copy, write in your special days, and copy them for your friends and family.
Stamping on the go again. I’m in San Diego waiting eagerly Saturday’s OnStage, a mini convention. I planned to record this video creating a baby card with my Getting Started supplies, but somehow I managed to leave both Sprinkles of Life and the stamps from the Watercolor Wishes kit at home! I did have the supplies for my Christmas cards with me. Somehow I think it works.
Last week I posted a card created by my 8 year old grandson. This week the guest designer is my 10 year old granddaughter. What with all the adventures and the kids and the dogs running around the house when we were home, I just knew I would not be able to find a quiet time for filming videos. So I decided to try videos with the kids creating cards. We all had so much fun! I hope you enjoy watching too.
We looked through my supplies with Evernote. If you want to know more about that, click here.
I love the soft background on this card! Old Olive is really lovely sponged lightly on the Whisper White card stock. The “fussy cutting” really adds to the look. If you have Stampin’ Dimensionals, use them to pop the flowers up for more pizzazz.

This card was quick and easy. I show how to use a 2-Way glue pen to make a mask, stamp and emboss, then sponge.
This card could be used for many different occasions.
Remember to allow the glue to dry fully before adhering to the card. I gave it 20 minutes, but it really wasn’t enough. You could also try painters’ tape or sticky notes for masking. You might want to test before using.

We all get inspiration from things we see. There are just a few projects I've shown that are CASEd (Copied and Shared Everything). Most of my cards come from a technique I've seen many places and I've made it my own in some way.
I post photos and directions so you can get inspiration. It's OK to copy them for personal use, but hopefully you will make it your own in some way. If you copy my ideas exactly, please give me credit for it. Do not sell any of my directions or organizing tools.
