Since it's my first post for the new year, I thought some little desk calendars would be a good place to start, (she says, casually trying to ignore that she hasn't posted any projects for a loooong time). I've made lots of these over the last couple of months, (some with matching post-it note books too).
The calendars fold so they can stand up by themselves & fold flat for posting. I used pre-printed mini calendars to make them, but you could easily print your own in a size to suit. The size of the front is 14.8cm x 7.5cm & you need only half an A4 sheet of card to make one. Anyhoo, here are some of the ones I've made. Hope you like them.
Do you love the little dressed up owl? My clever downline Sarah showed me how to make the little bow, eyes & wings. Thanks S!
You may notice that they all include retired DSP & some retired accessories, as I've been trying to use some of the TONS of retired goodies I have. (not to mention the TONS of current goodies too - the butterfly embosslit & owl punches are current favourites!
About the post-it notes......you may remember I have a bit of an obsession with post-its & always have heaps. I've made various boxes to hold them (scroll down this post to see one version) but hadn't gotten around to making any little books. Then, just at the right time, I saw this lovely one by Nikki Stalker. Nikki very thoughtfully provided instructions to make them, so I used these instructions to start me off. Then, inspired, I fiddled around with the measurements & design (as I do) for my own version. Thanks so much Nikki for generously sharing your excellent tutorial.
There's too many to give a full supply list, but if you'd like more information about anything or instructions for the calendars, just contact me. In the meantime, thanks muchly for visiting.
Inky wishes, Di
PS: I'm finally back in business with a new laptop & new version of Photoshop too (yay), so hopefully I can start to catch you up on some of my projects from the last few months too. Back soonish.
