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.

I fell in love with this stamp set and the coordinating Framelits. I knew this would be the stamp set for my Christmas cards this year. But I showed this version with my Stampin’ group. It really is a quick project and there are not big lumps to require extra postage.  You can make this card in time for this Christmas even if you have a big list.

The stepped up version is shown here.

I’ve included the directions for both versions.

This card looks complicated and difficult, but don’t let it fool you! It’s quick, easy, and inexpensive. It uses the Petal Burst Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, but you will not need the Big Shot! I used a Circle punch, but you could just cut out a square or rectangle. You can do it!

20151111_113827_resizedStamping 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.
