At this time of year, I love making Calendar cards. They give the recipient something to display all year long.

These Large Number framelits are the perfect addition!!!

Check out those stunning die cut flowers under the calendar, aren’t they gorgeous? These are called So Detailed Thinlits and they are brand new in the Occasions catalogue, available from 4th January. Also the background is stamped with the coordinating stamp set, So in Love.

Birthday, Calendar Card, Stampin' Up!

Easel Calendar Card

Dear Crafters,

Today I share another card using the Sweet Cupcake Bundle but it has been created as more of a gift that the recipient can keep all year long!

I’ve made this card for my husband’s aunt who loves my calendar cards and seeing as her birthday is on 1 December, it is perfect timing to send it to her with the 2017 calendar!

So today I have used the same colour scheme as Monday’s card; Watermelon Wonder, Peekaboo Peach, Whisper White. She wears a lot of orange so I thought this was perfect for her!

cupcake-wish-easel-calendar-card-using-stampin-up-sweet-cupcake-confetti-2016-by-kate-morgan-independent-demonstrator-classes-in-rowville-diy

The ‘sweet’ is die cut using the Cupcake Cutout Framelits in the Gold Glimmer paper.

cupcake-wish-easel-calendar-card-using-stampin-up-sweet-cupcake-confetti-2016-by-kate-morgan-independent-demonstrator-classes-in-rowville-craft-with-kate

The card front is embossed using the Confetti Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The Peekaboo Peach & white ovals are die cut using the Layering Ovals Framelits.

cupcake-wish-easel-calendar-card-using-stampin-up-sweet-cupcake-confetti-2016-by-kate-morgan-independent-demonstrator-classes-in-rowville-diy-craft-with-kate

The icing is a 3-step stamping process using photopolymer stamps, so you can easily line them up. The first layer is So Saffron then Peekaboo Peach before the final layer of Watermelon Wonder. I also used the Clear Wink of Stella over the top for a shiny glazed effect! I stamped a die cut two of these cupcakes, one for the front and one for inside the card!

cupcake-wish-easel-calendar-card-using-stampin-up-sweet-cupcake-confetti-2016-by-kate-morgan-independent-demonstrator-classes-in-rowville

The mini calendar is placed at the bottom of the inside of the card, as this creates the easel.

Don’t forget to decorate inside your card and stamp on the envelope!

Perpetual Desk Calendar

Dear Crafters,

With the start of the new year, I thought I would share this idea with you, a Perpetual Desk Calendar!

Perpetual Desk Calendar Birthday Bouquet DSP Scallop Tag Topper punch #stampinup Occasions 2016 @cardsbykate

As you can see, I photographed it last year (lol) on 30th December!

I have used the Birthday Bouquet DSP with my favourite In Colour, Mint Macaron!

The tags are cut using the Scallop Tag Topper punch. I made one for each day of the week.

I also made another 6 with the months, but these ones are double sided!!!

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a project created as an Easel style card, but using the mini calendar tabs and post it notes and yes, it folds reasonably flat!

This makes such a perfect gift for your loved ones or work colleagues this Christmas, adding a festive twist. We will be making one of these at my next Christmas Card Class on 21 November at 10.30am.

Yesterday’s Craft Class

Hello Stampers,

We had an epic Craft Class yesterday with 4 ladies thoroughly enjoying themselves and we had many many laughs along the way!

Here was the first card that we made ~ a Twisted Easel Tea Light Candle Card.

Tea Light Candle Card

and don’t fret, the tea light candle is battery operated, so no homes will burn down!!!

The next card we made included a mini calendar and post it note

Mini Calendar & Post it note Card

Then we some spare time at the end and the ladies were having so much fun, they wanted to make another mini calendar card but this time, a smaller one that I created myself. It also folds flat to be able to be mailed!

One of the ladies who attended said “I don’t have a crafty bone in my body” but she was so proud of her achievements and so were the rest of us. So next time I hold a craft class, be sure to come along!

Happy Stamping,

Kate

Easel Calendar & Post-it Card

Hello Stampers,

This is a project I have made for some upcoming craft markets and Christmas gifts. It is easy but also very useful! It is perfect as a gift for someone’s office or desktop. It has a pad of post-it notes on the bottom and the top part of the card sits behind the post-it notes and has a calendar which can be displayed all year round.

Mini Calendar Card

To create this you start with one piece of card stock measuring 4 1/4″ x 11″; score it at 5½” and 2¾”.

Mini Calendar Card

Fold as shown above and add adhesive to the easel section.  Cut one more layer at 4¼” x 5½”.  Adhere the bottom of this piece to the area with glue on it so that it folds flat. This will make them easier to put in the post!

Mini Calendar Card

I hope you like this cute but simple project.

Hello Stampers,

Here is another Calendar Card that I have been working on. You are probably aware by now that I love butterflies and I love the colour blue, although I don’t use it a lot in my cards.

I love how these sit on a table and I think I will be making many more for Christmas pressies and gifts for the kids teachers at the end of the year!
