Each month, I host an Open Stampin' and Photo Album Day in my craft room. We always have a great time enjoying the snacks the ladies bring and working on stamping projects. I usually have a free project prepared for everyone to make. This month I had 2 projects!
The first project was a card that I previously posted on my blog. Coloring the flowers was a hands on introduction to the Stampin' Blends.

The second project I had prepared for the ladies to make was a calendar easel card. I love these little calendars and the size easel card that Sandra Ronald featured on her blog is perfect. You can even mail them! I used her base size and adjusted the layers a little bit.
After all the snow & cold, we've had temperatures in the upper 70's this past week. I am soooo ready for spring! As I went through my designer series papers, I spotted the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper. Perfect for bright springy desk calendars!
They were so QUICK to make! Having the Daisy Delight stamp set & coordinating Daisy punch makes it super easy to coordinate everything! I made a sample and pulled out paper and a variety of accessories that the ladies could choose from to personalize their calendar easel cards.
Calendar Base: Cut 9 1/4" x 4 3/4". Score at 3 3/8", 6 3/4", 7 3/4" & 8 3/4"
Designer Series Paper: 4 3/8" x 3"
Cardstock Layer: 4 1/2" x 3 1/8"
Cardstock Layer behind Calendar (optional): 3 1/8" x 2 3/8"
*You can purchase the calendars through www.vippies.com or on Ebay
