Pretty LIttle Pineapples

Standard

 

Ok. So maybe pretty isn’t the right word to describe them but I did like the alliteration.  Anyway.  JUNE is here!  It’s officially SUMMER!

And pineapples are kind of like watermelon to me…they remind me of summertime picnics and barbeques!

When I saw this set (Fruit Basket–now retired) I just KNEW I had to have it. And the PUNCH! Just makes the cutest little pineapples!

And a couple punches and a fast stripe of washi tape and you have a very cute and very fast calendar. This same layout would work very well on a card or gift card holder!

I hope your June is full of cute pineapples and delicious watermelon and memories to last a lifetime.

Head on over time see what Cheryl and Anne have in store for June!

Orchids!

Standard

May’s calendar page was one I so enjoyed making… even in it’s extreme simplicity.  I love this little stamp set, Varied Vases.  It also has a coordinating punch (which is currently bundled at 10% off, but won’t be after May 31!)

I love that you can color the vase and flowers however you want.  And, for May, I wanted bright and cheerful!  And I LOVE orchids.  But, when they come into my home, they die.  A slow, painful, leaf by leaf death.  So, having STAMPED orchids allows me to enjoy the flower without harming any of the actual living plants!!  It’s a win-win!

Happy Mother’s Day to everyone!  Moms, aunties, sisters… all the wonderful women in our lives that have shaped and molded us into who we are.  I have several in my own life for whom I am eternally grateful.

Deck the Halls!

Standard

I LOVE decorating for Christmas (hate putting it away, but that is another post for another time).  When I saw this Season of Whimsy stamp set (2017 Holiday Catalog, host only stamp set), I KNEW I had to have it.  And, as a host only set, I had to strategically plan how I was gonna be able to earn it.  Hee Hee….

These ornaments are SO fun.  And they work perfectly for the watercolor wash look that is so popular right now (And, SO easy to do, because it doesn’t have to be perfect at all.

I chose traditional Christmas colors here (old olive and real red) and used crumb cake paper backing.  It’s fast and simple.

Hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas season.  I hope you get to spend time making things (gifts, cookies, Christmas cards…).  These are the most fun times!

If you enjoy being creative and would like to make your own calendar, this year, I have something new for you: The PDFs of these calendars!  It will look exactly like the calendar above (same fonts) but will be 2019.  For $5 you can get the files (calendar, cover page, and cutting instructions) and make as many calendars as you would like!  These make PERFECT gifts for family, friends, co-workers.  The easels are available in many craft and hobby stores.  They fit perfectly in the Stampin’ UP! clear card boxes and make a gorgeous gift.  Fill out the form below and I will email you an invoice through square.  Once paid, I will email you the files!

TO ORDER AN EASEL CALENDAR:

Spring is ‘Ready to Pop’

Standard

Happy March! Can’t believe it is nearly spring break. As a teacher, every month has it’s highlight and for March, it’s most definitely spring break.

So. The name of this stamp set is Ready to Pop. And it has this awesome little border stamp that works so perfect here. And the little punch (sorry, it’s retired) adds just the right flowers for some sweet sprintime blooms. The paper is blushing bride and the ink is pear pizzazz.

Thanks for stopping by today! Head on over to see what Anne and Cheryl have for you!

Sunburst!

Standard

So, when we got the color Flirty Flamingo, I fell in love with it immediately.  It’s the perfect mix between pink and coral and perfectly cheerful.  And, I’ve always been attracted to this Kinda Eclectic stamp set, but never really sure of what to do with it.  Until the color and the calendar came along…

And BAM.  You have a butterfly flying in the sunset.  Hee Hee…  I like the look of a bold color with a very neutral and graphic background.

When it comes to card making (and calendars) I feel that I am being drawn more and more to simplicity in both color and design.

Fall Leaves

If you’ve been following these little calendar posts, you will probably have noticed that I am a FAN of the Lighthearted Leaves stamp set (and coordinating framelits).  HUGE FAN.

So, It was a no-brainer when trying to decide what to use for October…  And, the corrugated cardstock!!  LOVE IT.  The background lines are from the Chalk Lines stamp set…  You notice, that cover for the calendar is the same everything…just a different background paper color… imageHead on over to see what Anne and Cheryl have for you!
