Stampin' Up! Lily Impressions Calendar


Hi Friends!

 I made some fun calendars this year!  I gave them to my downline that attended our shoebox swap back in December.  See the link below for more info about joining my downline and becoming an Inksprired Stamper.

These calendars are also my Club Member Treats this month, too :).  If you 'd like to receive cute treats from me each month, along with at least $30 in free product one month, AND a Free Sale-a-Bration item right now, too, you should consider joining a club!  You can learn more about becoming a Club Member during our Club Member Drive here.

I have seen so many cute versions of these calendars over the years!  I finally decided to order some (you can get them at tayloredexpressions.com - they're called 2020 mini tear-off calendars) and give it a try myself, and I love how they turned out!



I started with a piece of Bermuda Bay card stock measuring 4 1/4" x 11", and scored it at 5 1/2" (it starts out like a regular card base).


Next, I stamped the lilies (from the Lovely Lily Pad Stamp Set) in Bermuda Bay ink on the top half of this piece.

You can get the Lovely Lily Pad Stamp Set for FREE during Sale-a-Bration (now thru March 31) with a $50 order!

At the bottom of this piece, I added a 2 3/4" x 4 1/4" piece of Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper (DSP).  This DSP is another item you can get for FREE with a $50 order during Sale-a-Bration!

Then, I tied a bow around the DSP using the Metallic Baker's Twine from the Sale-a-Bration offering (yet another awesome item you can get for FREE with a $50 order during Sale-a-Bration!).  I love these two colors of twine together, and the metallic thread adds a little pizzaz to the twine, too.

(FREE with a $50 order during Sale-a-Bration)




Metallic Baker's Twine & Sequins Combo Pack  152314
(FREE with a $50 order during Sale-a-Bration)


You also need a 4 1/4" x 5" piece of Bermuda Bay card stock.  Score this piece at 1", 2 1/2" x 4".  This is the accordian fold piece that fits at the inside, bottom of your calendar.

You can see it better here.  Add Tear & Tape to the two outside 1" flaps and adhere to the inside of the base.

Next, we stamped "Kindness is Always in Style" (from one of my most favorite stamp sets in the new Spring Mini Catalog!, Dressed to Impress) in Blackberry Bliss ink on Whisper White cards stock and punched it out with the 1 1/2" Circle Punch.

We layered this circle on top of a Blackberry Bliss circle die-cut with the Layering Circles Dies and added it to the calendar with Dimensionals.

Then, we added three Noble Peacock Rhinestones to the calendar.  These Rhinestones coordinate perfectly with the Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper.  I know I will be buying A LOT of these rhinestones!

1 1/2" Circle Punch  138299

Finally, we cut a 3 1/8" x 2 3/8" piece of Blackberry Bliss card stock, adhered the calendar to it using Tear & Tape and then added these pieces to the base using more Tear & Tape.

I hope you enjoyed this calendar!  I sure have had fun making and giving them to everyone this year :).
