Desk Calendar

Hey there stampers! Thanks for stopping by!  Today's the last day to order from the Holiday Mini and to get the retiring stamp sets so place your order HERE or Email Me if there's anything you don't want to miss out on!  Tomorrow the new Occasions Mini and Sale-A-Bration begin!

Today's project is super simple but handy!  No stamping involved but you certainly could add a stamped element if you wanted to! We will be making these at my upcoming January Stamp camp as well as some thank you cards to thank those who were good to you over the holidays!  This also qualifies for the Pals Paper Arts Challenge this week...Anything but a card!

  1. Start with a 5x7 Acrylic Frame and add DSP inside.  I used Razzleberry Lemonade DSP matted on Rich Razzleberry card stock.
  2. Make the pen holder using Razzleberry lemonade DSP matted with Rich Razzleberry card stock.  Attach Rich Razzleberry Polka Dot Ribbon using Sticky Strip and adhere to frame using Sticky Strip as well.  Make sure you don't attach the ribbon too tight so you can easily add and remove the pen. :)
  3. Adhere the pad of Post-It note with Sticky Strip and the self-adhesive calendar pad (Vippies) where you'd like on the frame.
  4. Tie some Rich Razzleberry Polka Dot Ribbon around top of frame and tie into a knot.
