Meandering Meadows DSP Customer Calendars - December 2023

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 working along with the goal of 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.  It has become a custom for me as a new year rolls around, that I create calendars for my customers as their December Thank You from me.  This year I just had to use new Online Exclusive Designer Series Paper (DSP) called Meandering Meadow.  It is 6 x 6 DSP that is absolutely gorgeous!  It is very "scenic" paper with fields of flowers and gorgeous landscapes.  I created an easel calendar this year so it can stand up and the Post-it note holder becomes the stopper for the easel.  

I used several colors of Card Stock to coordinate with the DSP colors.  I cut, folded and scored the Cardstock and DSP as listed below and adhered the calendar and Post-It Note holder with Tear & Tape so it would be sturdy.  The only stamping was the sentiment from the Garden Meadow stamp set which is part of the Meandering Meadow suite.  I added some metallic Adhesive-backed birds above and below the sentiment on the Post-It note cover.  They come together fairly quickly, and with the gorgeous DSP, I think they are just SOOO pretty!  I hope 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 in a closed for packaging position:

And the front view when the calendar easel is standing:

 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.
