2018 Easel Calendar

As some of you may know, I always make new desk calendars each year for family and friends and give them as gifts at Christmas.  This year Taylored Expressions introduced the new Display Easel Dies and it's simply perfect for calendars.  They are so cute and so easy to put together.  I have lots of ideas for other ways to use the die but will share those as I make up the projects.  Something to look forward to in the new year.

The base was cut from Fresh Fig cardstock.  I cut the flowered label from The Playful Patterns - Harvest patterned paper from Taylored Expressions.  The mini calendars are from Taylored Expressions.  I have found hers to be the best and they are just the right size for the easel.  The stamp set I used is Colorful Seasons by Stampin' Up!

Although it is not easily seen in the photos, I didn't attach the flowered label.  With the little shelf, you could place one of your favorite photos and display it throughout the year or change it out as often as you like.

Today I'm entering my calendar in the "anything but a card" challenge from The Flower Challenge.  For all the challenge details and to share your project, click the image below.

Thanks for stopping by the Coffee Pot Stamping Cafe,

  2. Oh Marsha, this gifts are both thoughtful and beautiful, great for teachers and coaches, friends at the office, neighbors and family too.
    Love the way the sentiment is displayed, it gives a chance to change it to other beautiful and inspiring sentiments if you'd like.
