Handmade Desk Calendars

Hi, everyone! Hope you enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving celebration.

Leslie and the SOS Team have a No Stamping Challenge going on right now. Well, I was intrigued... especially because I am a proud, card-carrying member of the No-Stamp-Stamp-Club!

But, truth be told, the menopause room currently runneth over with packing up a box of SAS4Kids holiday cards for Nationwide Children's and putting the final touches on craft show items. And, then it hit me. My craft show desk calendars are as no-stamping as can be!

I've created calendars with several different themes, including paw prints, floral patterns, and inspirational quotes -- all of which are no-stamped creations.

Created with dp, colored cardstock, and punches

Created by using Wordle to create background paper and
then printing sentiment on background paper

Thanks to our SU demonstrator for the original calendar idea and to friend-in-craft Mary Anne for e-mailing several design ideas, including options for including sticky note pads.

Enjoy the rest of this holiday weekend. As always, thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
