Modified Calendar

Here is what I'm using for my calendar this year! Like every other parent out there, I have to have something to track activities!! We missed a basketball practice last weekend because I didn't have mine up and going!! I found the basic calendar at Wal-mart and gave it the Stampin' Up! look!


I used a new set-Petal Pizazz that will be available in the upcoming Spring/Summer Idea book. Demo perk-preordering sets!! I took a piece of Shimmery White cardstock and used inks that coordinate with the pages in the calendar-see below.



I first stamped the 'enjoy' from the Enjoy Every Moment set in Chocolate Chip on the lower right corner. I then randomly added flowers around it using Regal Rose, Only Orange, Not Quite Navy & more Chocolate Chip. I added a flower brad in the 'o' of enjoy. I debated on adding more brads, but decided I didn't want it too bumpy to write on!

Here is a picture of the actual front cover of the book, and how it fits into the vinyl cover. I didn't attach the cardstock to the book. I put the cardstock in the cover, then added the book. It works better if they can move independently! and yes, I found that out the hard way!

So far this is working great! It is just about the size of a checkbook and fits very easily in my purse. Now, to get new checkbooks stamped too!

Oh, can't leave without a teaser. My NEW catalogs are tracking to arrive Tuesday & Wednesday!! Can't wait to see all the great new things I've been hearing about!!!
