Desktop Calendar

Thanks to my upline, Judy May (www.judymay.typepad.com) , for teaching me how to make this calendar. I still have the one I made at one of her classes on my desktop.

To change it up a bit, I have decided to go with butterflies as my decoration. The great thing about this calendar is that you get to choose what you want to decorate the front with. Where Judy encouraged our class to use the Owl Builder Punch to create a fun decoration to go next to the calendar tabs, I wanted to use butterflies instead. Stampin Up! have so many great punches and framelits to choose from – it’s simply up to your own imagination.

Glittering Christmas Bauble Window Card

I CASE’d this card from Kay Kalthoff from http://www.stampintoshare.com. Whilst her card used the Decorative Punch for the window shape on the front of the card, I have chosen to use the 1¾” Circle Punch instead, just to show you are not limited to what shape you use for your window.

I love mixing my old and new stamp sets - here I have used the current set 'Berry Merry' and the retired set 'Contempo Christmas' to complete this card.
