I have been busy the last few weeks getting ready for my calendar class with a little sideline trip to hospital, but am on the mend now.

I ran two classes as per usual and I think it has been the nicest calendar that I have done so far ... blowing my own trumpet here. Here are a few photos.

All calendars were made using the Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper Pattern Stacks in Bold Brights. Colours in card and ink were Whisper White, Basic Black and Grey, Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Temptin Turquiose and Pumpkin Pie. I used the Ornament Punch for the petals. You can't see but I sprayed them with  Champagne Mist mixed with Isocol and then spritzed them with matching coloured Stampin' Write Markers. The drawer knobs are from Antique Brads.

I used the Just Believe stamp set to create the 3x3 cards to go in the drawers. The embossed backgrounds were created with the Square Lattice and Elegant Bouquet folders. Punches used were Fancy Flower, 1.3/8" and 1.3/4" Circle and Word Window. Finally the little butterfly is from the Beautiful Wings Embosslit Die.

I would like to give credit to France, the lady who created the beautiful flower above and you can find her tutorial for the Rose Flower right here.

All of the above calendars went to good homes. I have given them away as Secret Santa Pressies and I also made a gorgeous Melon Mambo one for my desk because it would look so good in my new pink craft room.
