The idea for a dry erase calendar made with all Stampin’ Up products has been rolling around my head for a while now. It finally came together and I’m really happy with the results.
This is a hybrid digital project. I created the calendar itself with My Digital Studio and the Sale-A-Bration Lemonade Stand digital kit, and printed it onto 12×12 Whisper White cardstock. The calendar is inside a 12×12 scrapbook page protector – the perfect surface to write on with a dry erase marker. It takes the ink wonderfully and erases easily. You could laminate the calendar instead, but by using a page protector you can switch out the calendar for different seasons or even if you just want a change.
For the topper, I cut a 12×6 piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock, scored it in half and attached it to the page protector with brads – just like a VERY BIG topper for a treat bag. The title “Happenings” was printed onto a sheet of vellum cardstock, then cut with the largest shape from the Apothecary Accents framelets set. The patterned strips were printed out of My Digital Studio to match the calendar. I printed both patterns on 8 1/2 x 11 Whisper White cardstock and cut off the strips I needed. The flower was assembled with pieces punched with the Blossom Petals Punch onto a scrap circle. I used the Tombow Mono-multi liquid glue to adhere them together. Love that stuff! A Brights button and a pearl was glued in the center of the flower to dress it up.
I added a ribbon marker holder on the side, but it tilts the calendar when it’s hung on the wall. This will work if you set the calendar on an easel or if you put magnets on the back and hang it on the fridge door. How cute would this be, hanging in the kitchen?
