Today’s post was sent to a blog reader from a random drawing selection. I had promised to send a gift made personally and this is what was sent…
Hoping Rosemary has received her gift and this post isn’t ruining her surprise. Thought this little desk calendar would be useful in her stamping space.
Because I gave away the only catalog I had with me (I’m still with “the littles” in Florida) I don’t have the exact name of the stamp set. But it is in the Occasion Catalog with coordinating framelits and it is awesome! I’ve seen so many really cute and clever things made with this set.
I can give you the dimensions to the calendar stand…
The Thick Whisper White base is 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored on the long side at 4″, 8″, 9″ and 10″. Make the 9″ score a valley fold and the 8″ and 10″ mountian folds. Attach the last inch fold to the top of the card piece and stand it up.
The Calypso Coral cardstock is 4″ x 4-1/4″ attached with SNAIL.
The DSP layers are 3-7/8″ x 4-1/8″ attached with SNAIL, and 3-7/8″ x 1-3/4″ for the top layer attached with SNAIL.
The calendars I ordered from Tayloredexpressions.com. The cardstock behind the calendar was cut 1/8″ wider than the calendar.
The T-Shirt was stamped on scrap of Thick Whisper White in Smoky Slate and cut out with framelit.
The T-Shirt message was stamped in Calypso Coral.
The T-Shirt collar was stamped in Calypso Coral and cut with framelit and attached with a piece of dimensional.
The T-Shirt was added to top of calendar with multipurpose glue
So today is going home day. One more school pick up and one more after school treat before I leave. It’s been fun to be involved in their daily activities and be here when they get home. Of course the amazing warm, no humidity weather has been pretty nice too.
Here’s your “B-ism” for today…
Stay inky my friend…be HaPpY!
