Delightful Dates Calendar and Box


Delightful Dates Calendar and Box
This is what has been keeping me busy lately. I was just going to do only one up for the craft show but after I got started I fell in love with the set so decided to do all four that I had.  I think the price is a little steep in the book, almost $8 ea. before decorating.  So I had to think of some way to really sell these.  There is DSP on the back of each card and a chipboard easel to set them on. The November card above is setting on the easel but it is hard to see because it is black. I decided to create a nice decorative box to go along with the set.  I took the punched out chipboard parts from the easel painted them black and glued them to the top of the box.

TIP: A good stamp set to use for this is "Teeny Tiny Wishes" from Stampin Up.  It has almost all of the holiday sayings that I used on this project. Very useful stamp set.

Here is each month as I decorated it:

  1. Wow Kathleen, very pretty -- now I know why you loved them so much!! I do have to forwarn you, however, when I do mine it is not even going to come close to this elaborate. Good luck on the craft sale, you deserve it for all your hard work and great projects. Just hope you have something left to sell by this weekend. With all the sales you have had already, you will be lucky to have anything left.

  2. Darn it Sandi, I was typing my comments and then when I went to post it, it wouldn't take. I had to sign in to google. Oh well, you missed out on a very good review from #1 sister. These are beautiful and I loved the way you decorated not only the boxes but the months also. I am sure these will sell at the craft show. Are you getting excited about the show? Okay this wasn't exactly what I said before but you can fill in all the adjectives you can think of to describe this project on my behalf. LOL TFS
