Stampers Dozen Let's Sale-A-Brate

Howdy Stampers!
Happy 2018! Welcome to the first Stampers Dozen Blog Hop of the year!! And, being the first of the year, I think we are all in need of a new calendar.  Using the FREE Sale-A-Bration (SAB) Celebrate You thinlits and the fabulous Myths & Magic glimmer paper, I created this quick and easy calendar.

Basic Black 12" x 12", cut at 4 1/4" and scored at 6"
Basic Black 4 1/4" x 5", scored with 5" edge at top at 1", 2 1/2" and 4".  Fan fold on score lines.

Here is a side angle picture of the calendar so you can see how to adhere the smaller piece to make the calendar stand nicely.

I ordered the little calendars on-line. Leave a comment if you need more information about that.
I hope you enjoy our blog hop today!! Now, you can click Previous to return to Carol Payne's creative blog or click on Next to check out what the fabulous Rachel Yurkanin has in store for you.

All Occasions Petal Palette

 Howdy Stampers!
I simply cannot get enough of this Petal Palette bundle in the Occasions Mini catalog!  After having made a bunch of cards with this bundle, I had bits and pieces on my work area and made this "any occasion" card with them.  It came together quickly and I think would be perfect for a birthday, a thinking of you, or just for a heartfelt note of sympathy to someone who lost their mother.
Below is a product list and a step by step set of instructions for you.

Have a happy day!!
