January 2022 Hand Penned In Symmetry Customer Calendars


I am participating in another Stampin' Up!® Demonstrator Training Program Monthly Blog Hop!  They are so fun!  I am so happy that you could join us today for this blog hop for ideas and creative inspiration. We are a group of Stampin' Up!® Demonstrators from around the world that are taking part in training that is helping us to build a successful Stampin' Up!® business and reach some goals we have set. We really appreciate your support.

You may be starting here or have come from another blog - either way you can find the link list at the bottom of this post so that you can see every blog post today.

This month instead of a card, I created calendars for all my customers that placed an order this month, as well as my regular "repeat" customers.  It is a way I like to say "Thank You" every year at the start of a new year.  I used the Hand Penned DSP, which is one of my favorites this year from the annual catalog.  It is the most beautiful paper!  I made half of the calendars with a Misty Moonlight base, and the other half with a Highland Heather base.  I kept it very simple and used a stamp from the In Symmetry Stamp Set stamped in the same color as the the card stock.  I used the die from the Seasonal Labels dies to cut the sentiment and the sentiment background mat.  A single Bumblebee Trinket to the left of the sentiment finished it off perfectly!

Here is a picture of both color calendars standing up.  

Simple, but pretty, I think.  Hopefully everyone likes them and can use them.  If you want to recreate these calendars, the measurements and supplies I used are below.  If you need any supplies you can click on the item to be taken straight to that item in my online store to shop with me for whatever you need.  

Thanks for stopping by my blog and use the links below to continue on with the hop.


Until next time...
Happy Stamping!
