Calendar Blocks

I just love this project that Carrie Cudney demonstrated at the Cincinnati Regional Seminar in September. I embellished mine a little differently (and I think I need to add a little something else to some of the white space...), but it was super easy!

Here's what you need to make your own:
  • Delightful Dates Calendar Kit, #116771, $7.95
  • Decor Elements Decor Blocks (set of 4), #116829, $9.95
  • Tombow Multi Adhesive, #110755, $3.95
  • The Write Stuff Speciality Paper (or DSP of your choice), #115674, $11.95
Click HERE to order these products in my Online Store and be entered in my free stamp set drawing to win "Snow Buddies".

The calendar comes as 3-1/2" x 3-1/2" squares, so you'll have to trim it down a little to get the 3" x 3" size you need to fit on the block. I adhered the calendar and Designer paper with Tombow Multi Adhesive and then embellished the sides of the middle one with the Fancy Folds die in coordinating colors and pieces from The Write Stuff specialty paper.

One hint: When you layout the calendar pages, make sure to alternate so that months that run together are on different blocks so that you can rearrange the stack each month to show the previous month, the current month, and the next month, or the current month and the next two months.
On Block #1, you should have: January, April, July, October
On Block #2, you should have: February, May, August, November
On Block #3, you should have: March, June, September, December
