Look at this craft calendar HERE in her SCS gallery. When you're ready, you just untie the ribbon, flip the inside to the outside, re-tie the ribbon and you're set for the next 6 months! This is a surprizingly easy project. All supplies are SU with the exception of a Sakura clear glaze pen & Spica clear glitter pen that was used to accent the image pieces and the calendar, which was printed on the computer. She used the Tree For All Seasons set to represent each season. It's currently on the dormant list, so you won't find it in your catalog, but it IS available and you can see it online right HERE. ~ Okay, are you ready to make one of your own? Here's how :)
Cutting/Scoring toolBasic Black & Whisper White cardstock
4 Colors of card stock with coordinating DPTree for all Seasons Stamp set
Black Stazon Ink, SU Markers & Sakura clear Glaze pen1 3/8" Circle Punch & Scallop Circle PunchCropadile, Black Gingham Ribbon, Roll-on adhesive & Dimensionals
Step 1: Print a Yearly Calendar...go to:http://www.printfree.com/Calendar_files/Yearly/2009printable.htmRight click on the calendar & Select AllRight Click on the calendar & select Print PreviewGo to the “Shrink Down” drop down menu, select 80%Print onto Whisper White Cardstock
Step 2: Cut, Punch & Score the following pieces:Cut Black Cardstock 5 ½ x 8 ½” and Score at 4 ¼ “ ( just like you would for a cardbase)
Cut Black Cardstock (4) 5 x 1 5/8”
Punch (4) Black Scallops
Cut 4 pieces of *Cardstock & coordinating Designer Paper:Cardstock: 5 ¼ x 4”Designer Paper: 5 x 2 ½”
Cut Calendar strips (finished size should be 4 7/8 x 1 ½” each)For each “season” complete the following steps:
Adhere DP onto the coordinating colored cardstock.Adhere the black matting to the white calendar strip.Adhere the matted calendar strip to the colored cardstock (the bottom edge of the black mat should be approx 3/8” from the bottom of the colored cardstock..to allow room for holes that will be punched).Adhere Black Scallop above calendar strip.Stamp & color image. Punch out with 1 3/8” circle punch.Place (2) dimensionals behind the image circle & adhere to the black scallop
Next, you'll want to think about which 2 seasons you want on the outside and on the inside of your calendar then adhere each onto the black calendar base. For instance, you could put Spring & Summer on the outside, Fall & Winter on the inside. Just make sure your seasons go in sequence. If your layers are heavy, you may want to consider using sticky strip or whatever strong adhesive you prefer. For my calendar, my standard monohesive worked just great! I made this one about a month ago and it's still in perfect shape...no signs of lifting.Use your Cropadile to punch two 1/8” holes (for the ribbon) on the bottom edge of both sides of the calendar (approx 3/8” up from the bottom edge). Thread gingham ribbon through and tie in a loose knot or bow. Wasn't that easy? This is basically just a standard black card base with layers on all 4 sides and it fits inside a standard SU Medium or Translucent Envelope! You can customize this SO many ways for gifts. Just look through your stamps and papers & I bet you'll find something that would work for each season. Add Scriptures, Quotes, family Photos...the possibilities are endless! If you have any questions about the project, just email me (firstname.lastname@example.org).
I'm headed out of town for the Thanksgiving Holiday. Happy & Blessed Thanksgiving to my US friends and a Wonderful week to my friends abroad! HUGS to all :) !!!

Don't get me wrong I love my family, but ya know there comes a time and a place somewhere for me!! I did complete 2 layouts woo-hoo. Took all week to do them to. We did acomplish so much around the house it was unreal. All the shrubbery and trees got a good trimming. The yard has been groomed and raked. Khloie has been groomed and raked, hehehehe. My house has been cleaned and all the clothes are clean. Kristin's car got new brakes and $600.00 later lots of new stuff... :( Hugh got a crown, his mom got a new hair cut, Tammy got a clean bill of health from the doctor and she got an ID card!! Trust me she needed it. To much to share the details here. Went to the Hummingbird Festival in Hogansville. It was nice, we had a good visit. Oh and I visited with my Mom for about 2 hrs one evening. All in all we did have a good time off. Thanks for listening. Now gear up ladies it's time to get those holiday projects started cause they are coming, whether your ready or not!!

Well finally got home around 4 and started peeling pears, cutting, grinding up that crap then cooking AAAAAHHHHHH. Finally around 7pm, I was finished with 12 pints of the most beautiful stuff ever. So I spent 3 hrs today making pear relish, after all it didn't kill me. It turned out beautiful to. I have never made it!! It tastes delicious to. Not hot just sweet and spicey!!

Well I have found mine. In October 2008, my hero will have been with me for 22 years!!! That's a long time. We have had up's and down's and all arounds. But somehow we still keep keepin' on. Hugh is my hero. Through all the good, bad, and ugly he still loves me. I love him more today than 20 years ago. Our years together have really been more for the good than the bad. I love him dearly and always will. So Hugh you will always be my hero!!
I LOVE YOU, Vicki
