2 Posts in one day? My goodness!

I guess you cant get rid of me that easy, this is my 2nd post for the day!! But there are just a few things that I need to show you other than a blog award, even though I'm proud of it!

The other day when I was blurfing I stopped by Stamp a little love and had seen what she made. My goodness, just in time too. I was needing to make something other than post it note holders for Christmas. I love doing the mini desk calendars, and I did some last year on coasters, remember? Well anyway, I saw these and they were perfect! Actually she got the idea from Nancy Littrell on SCS. Then another of her friends, Nancy Morgan posted the tutorial here. So please go give them all some love for these awesome calendars! Here's my spin on them.

I basically used random paper from Heidi Grace, Crate Paper and SU! Since I don't have the Top Note die from SU! I traced and hand cut those pieces. I used my square scallop punch and Mega scallop punch to cut out the images from A Tree for All Seasons. Then just random eyelets, buttons, primas, flowers and ribbon. The base card (the Chocolate Chip part) is cut 6 1/2" by 11. They are not small, but they are not too big either. I hope that you like them.

Everyone has their own way of doing things, so make sure that you check out the other blogs, and make sure that you tell them how great they are, because they really are!!!

Remember the cute Christmas planners that I did? I made one yesterday that looks just like a long card. I just attached the lists to the inside with brads and covered them with the card front. I am sorry, I neglected to get a photo of the inside, but you can go to Organized Christmas to find different print outs to customize your own.

Basically I just cut a piece of Ballet Blue cs to fit the planner inside. I think it was 3 1/2" wide by 7" long. I stamped the snowman from Ann-ticipations and colored what there was to color with watercolors. I used the paper I got from Walmart last year, some ribbon and a saying from an old foam D.O.T.S. set I had with Ballet Blue ink and that was it. To keep it closed I just added some of the DP from the pack and ribbon to a small binder clip and that was all. It's perfect size to slip in your purse. I always write things down at Christmas. What I get who and such. If I don't then I'd go way overboard or forget to buy something for someone.

Well, that's all for today. Please be sure to go and check out those other calendars and let them know how cool they are! I need to be off to create something else for you to look at. Hopefully I will be back tomorrow, but we've got some family things to do - so I can't promise.

If not, have a great weekend!
