Hues of Happiness DSP Customer Calendars


 Hi Stampers!

Happy Monday and welcome to my post for Kylie's Stampin' Up!® Demonstrator Training Program Monthly Blog Hop!  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.  Every year it has become a tradition to make my customers and team members (and some family members too!) calendars for the coming year.  I have several that look forward to getting them every year.  This year, I was crunched for time, so I copied a version I had seen several people make versions of online that had no stamping.  It uses the gorgeous Hues of Happiness DSP.  It is super simple to make and assemble and uses less than one sheet of cardstock for the easel for the calendar.  As an added bonus I added a pocket to the front that holds a pack of post-it-notes and a small pencil (which I got from Amazon).  The mini tear-off calendars can also be purchased online.  

I used several colors of Card Stock to coordinate with the DSP colors.  I did use a retired corner rounder punch on the top outer corners, but you do not have to round the edges.  I folded and scored the Cardstock and DSP as listed below and adhered the base and pocket with Tear & Tape so it would be sturdy.  I added some metallic flowers in each corner and some brass butterflies in the top center after the box and DSP were assembled.  Final touches included attaching the calendar to the front and popping in the Post-it-Note pad and pencil in the pocket.  Super simple, but also useful!  I think everyone will like them, and they will have something to think of me all year long!  

Here is an up close view of just one calendar:

And a slight side view:

 If don't already have a demonstrator you purchase from, place an order from me in December, and I will pop you a calendar in the mail!  Placing an order with me, also gets you on my customer list for sending catalogs.  If you need a catalog, please let me know once you have placed your order and I will get them in the mail to you.  If you would like to replicate these calendars, the CS and DSP measurements are below.  

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