Calendars for 2014

I made some very quick calendars to pop into some of my friends' Christmas cards and I love the simplicity of these. I saw a very similar design on one of the Papertrey Ink's DT a couple of years back and pinned it, so used that as my starting point. I'm entering these into Just Add Ink's Challenge #196 to add your Christmas Project and for Totally Gorjuss' Challenge #215 Quick Christmas - well these were a quick, Christmas gift so I hope that counts!

This is the Real Red version, although I did 10 in the end, 2 of each of the 5 different colours. These were really quick and easy to make - just a few folds to make the bottom stand up and fold down, a bit of stamping, mounted the calendar tabs and voila! All done. I think each one probably took no more than 10 minutes, but I did them production line style!

And here's all of them together.


Stamps: Daydreamer from Papertrey Ink (can't remember which set the sentiment os from so will have a hunt tomorrow when I pull all my crafting stuff back out!)

Papers: Confetti White (Retired), Real Red, Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Tempting Turquoise, Rich Razzleberry all  from Stampin' Up

Inks: Real Red, Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Tempting Turquoise, Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive all  from Stampin' Up

Accessories: Calendar Tabs from Anita's

And that's all from me for this post folks! Thanks for stopping by!
