Happy New Year Everyone,
Looking forward to another year crafting,
Here's wishing you all a very Happy and Healthy New Year.
While not make a little desk calendar to celebrate the New Year.
I used Perpetual Calendar and Number of Years Stamp Sets for mine.
Take half a sheet of thick white and score along the long side at 10.5cm, 14cm, 17.5cm, 28cm
or in inches 4 1/4" x 11 1/2", score along the 11 1/2" side at 4 1/4", 5 1/2", 6 3/4", 11"
Fold up as shown below and glue together using the thin scored end.
Take two 10cm x 10cm or 4" x 4" pieces of rich razzleberry and stamp all over with the butterfly image. Glue one to the back and front of the folded base and then use a crop a dile to punch two holes for the book rings, these are 1" book rings.
This will be the back of the calendar. Add the other piece to the front of the folded base.
Then make 12 pages all the same sizes but use different coloured cardstock. I kept to the bright colour family. All the stamped images are still in the perpetual calendar stamp set.
The little calendars are available in stationery stores, mine was from hobbycraft and the range.
Each page is 9.5cm x 9.5cm (3 3/4" x 3 3/4") base, 9cm x 9cm ( 3 1/2" x 3 1/2") white, 9cm x 4cm (3 1/2" x 1 3/4")designer paper and 7.5cm x 5cm (3" x 2")for the piece behind the calendar page.
Stamp over the top 2/3rd's of the white layer in the same colour ink, ie this page is tempting turquoise.
February is Real Red.
March is Pumpkin Pie.
April is Daffodil Delight.
May is Bermuda Bay.
June is Melon Mambo.
July is Rich Razzleberry.
August is Daffodil Delight
September is Old Olive.
October is Pumpkin Pie.
November is Bermuda Bay.
December is Real Red.
The front is another piece of 10cm x 10cm (4" x 4") rich razzleberry, 10cm x 4cm (4" x 1 1/2") designer paper.
Stamp the numbers from Number of Years stamp set and using the matching number framelits to cut them out if you have them.
Hope you enjoy making your own calendar,

Ready for Christmas? Hope you all have a good one.
I've finished for the year, lots of cards gone in the post and all my parties complete.
Time to play with New goodies :-)
We did a couple of different games this year.
My downline one was so fun and cor! they did great.
They had to wrap their own little gift using just one free hand, the other hand was inside a paper bag! hee hee
They had to work together in pairs to wrap the gift, complete with a ribbon bow and a written gift tag. The fastest team won a stamp set each.
The new Sale a bration and Spring Catalogues have arrived,
Let me know if you would like a copy of each posted to you.
A few of the Christmas cards sent out this year.
This is an A5 one.
The stocking set is gorgeous.
Another Christmas & Pines card.
A Fireside version.

Thank you for all the lovely wishes re my son's condition. A little update: He has had 3 chemo treatments so far and he is coping quite well. Think he is bit bored being at home, tried to get him to craft but just got that look! hee hee So we are cooking instead.
Anyway back to the projects in hand....I couldn't order the stitched framelits quick enough when they were released on the 1st November, well they came Monday and these are what I have created so far, just know they will be used so much as the sizes are perfect.
They co-ordinate with the layering circles, ovals and squares in the main catalogue.
This is the largest circle and the smallest oval.
Some of these stamp sets are on offer with 25% off see my online store or the list at the end of this post.
This is the second smallest circle.
They do layer up so nicely, with both the plain and scallop circles.
The little bakers box is from the Bakers Box thinlits dies and the gift bag is the largest using the gift bag punch board, all with the candy cane papers. The stamp set is the cookie cutter stamp set.
This is the largest square stitched size, see it layers up with the plain and scallop ones nicely.
Ovals for this gift card holder.
The stocking set has 25% off as well, bargain.
Also the Christmas Pines stamp set has 25% off, Love these framelits with the stamp set.
A little gift card holder to match the cards.
My shop is on the left hand side.
Thank you for looking,

Its been a while since my last post but life sometimes throws you a few things to deal with.
My eldest son hasn't been well since the summer, he was diagnosed a few weeks ago with Hodgkins Lymphoma which was a shock as he is only 21 years old. He has just started chemo, so we are in the full swing of hospital visits now. We are keeping everything crossed for him.
I had only just started the prep work for my Christmas Extravaganza so my blog had to be left for a bit, hope you understand.
As usual we did three projects, this was Project one using the Holly Berry Happiness Bundle which everyone got in their gift bags.
The gatefold card is 6" x 6" so a nice big one and a matching what gift box and belly band. These are in the christmas catalogue which come in packs of 8.
When you open up the card, the inside looks like this.
The second project used part of the Forever Evergreen Christmas Kit.
My inspiration came from a Stampin UP Magazine, that we demonstrators get.
Its a 12" x 10" Canvas ready to hang for Christmas.
The third project used the Santa's Sleigh Bundle. A Tissue Box cover and matching card.
The instructions are on the right if you would like to play along,
