Easel Desktop Calendar

Denise over at TINKER Crafts sent me a couple of 2010 calendars (thanks so much).  I always wanted to try my hand at making a Easel Desktop Calendar . . . perfect!!!  So, I went straight to work on them.  Click {here} for the tutorial if you want to know how to make one.  Tammy Maxvill of Fun Paper Candy documented this tutorial.





I used my Paper Pretties stamp, Sophia Ballerina.  It looks like she's throwing a bunch of flowers in the air!  Colored her up with my copics and added some stickles for her tutu, some dew drops, and ribbon.  I also used my Martha Stewart punch (luv this one!) & my flower embossing folder for the background CS . . . and do you see the embossed dots around the oval scallop?  I did that with my dot embossing folder, all individually.  Crazy yeah!  There is a pull drawer to put small items inside. 

I entered these in a few challenges:

  3. WOW, that is so pretty! Love it, glad you were able to make use of the calendars. You need to teach me how to make one on one of our Friday nights! I printed the tutorial, but we can possibly do it together....I am more of a visual person. LOL
    Have a great weekend.
