It’s a Beautiful Day to Create a Calendar!

How did we ever keep track of things before sticky notes were invented?

Calendars created with Sale-a-Bration freebies!

I love having sticky notes and a quick-view calendar at hand. Perfect for a desk, craft area, or home command center.

a 5″ x 7″ acrylic photo frame (I got mine from a dollar-type store), 3″ x 3″ sticky notes, and a small monthly calendar. You can purchase these online or print your own.

1. Cut Designer Series Paper to 5″ X 7″. Slip paper into the frame just like you would a photo.
2. Use Tear n’ Tape to adhere sticky notes and calendar to front of frame.
3. Stamp It’s a beautiful day greeting from Love What You Do stamp set onto Whisper White cardstock.
4. Use Layering Circle framelits to die cut greeting and background layer. Add to frame with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
5. Tie ribbon around frame and trim off excess.

I used the Botanical Butterflies Designer Series Paper that you can get as a free Sale-a-Bration item as the paper and color inspiration for both of these projects.

Comment below with which Designer Series Paper you’d use to make your personalized calendar creation!

Lovely Love Sign

One of the things I love about Stampin’ Up! products is how versatile they are. Of course, they are great for card making and memory keeping. But paper crafting is about more then 2-D projects. I love creating decor projects like this Love sign.

These decor classes are some of my favorites because each sign turns out differently depending on the personality of the person making it!

Fall is for Pumpkins!

Fall is my very favorite season!

Something about the crisp air the crunch of fallen leaves and the anticipation of Thanksgiving and Christmas just makes this time of year extra-special to me.

I wanted to share one of my favorite fall projects with you. It’s something you can make and use year after year.

It’s paper pumpkins! (Not to be confused with My Paper Pumpkin! ha ha!)

These paper pumpkins have been made into a garland, but they also look great as decor in other ways, like arranged in a bowl.  Here is the full view of the garland hanging.  See more detailed photos below.
