2012 4x6 Calendar

We made these at Stamp Club this weekend, and got a TON done!  I got the calendars from A Muse.  They are 4x6 and fit in a 4x6 cd/calendar case.  Lots of current/retired/non-SU products, so I'm not going to list anything specific.  Just posting pics of the months.

Trio of Trees

These are my favorite cards from my Christmas Cards Class.  I love those buttons, even though they're too big to mail.  They definitely require hand-cancelling at the post office and extra postage.  But they're so adorable!

I also used the precut Notecards and envelopes for these.  They are smaller than traditional A2s, but still a decent enough size.

Stamps:  Pennant Parade

Cardstock:  Whisper White, Wild Wasabi, Real Red, Notecards/envelope sets

Ink:  Early Espresso, Wild Wasabi, Daffodil Delight

Other:  Designer Label punch, Holly Berry Bouquet designer buttons, Real Red & Very Vanilla 1/8" taffeta ribbon, mini glue dots

Stamps:  Snow Much Fun, Snow Swirled

Cardstock:  Pool Party, Whisper White

Ink:  Black

Other:  Pool Party/Calypso Coral markers, Basic Accent Rhinestones, Stampin' Dimensionals, Scallop Oval punch, Mini glue dots

Delightful Decorations goes vintage

Love the vintage-y look of these colors together!

Stamps:  Delightful Decorations, Word Play

Cardstock:  Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Baja Breeze

Ink:  Crumb Cake, Baja Breeze

Other:  Ornament punch, 1/8" hole punch, Gold brads, Stampin' dimensionals, sponge, Big Shot, Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder, Sticky Strip

(I like to use a little bit of Sticky Strip to hold down layers that I've embossed...all that texture needs a firm tape to keep it down/attached)

Christmas Lodge in blue...
