Back to School with Sweet Stamp Shop and Petaloo
Please note we updated this post with some directions for you on how to make this cute little project!
We have a fun week for you this week! We have teamed up with Petaloo and Sweet Stamp shop for some FUN! If you love flowers make sure you buy Petaloo flowers that core’dinate with our cardstock PERFECTLY! No worrying about matching them yourself, we did that for you.
Don’t forget to head over to Petaloo blog and the Sweet Stamp Shop blog to check things out. I heard some rumors there are goodies up for grabs over there, too! (Keep in mind SSS is PST time so they be up a bit later).
We will be giving away some goodies here on the blog for commenting ALL WEEK long and our Facebook page, too! Leave a comment over there about what the first day of school is like in your house! I know it is a crazy day here!!! And if you don’t have kids in school then share a found memory you have about your first day of school. We want to here it…we are gearing up for 8000 likes over there and can’t wait!
Today Design Team Member Char Dobson created this desktop calendar that is perfect for any teacher gift. Char used Cardinal cardstock that matches the Petaloo flowers and the Sweet Stamp Shop Against the Grain stamp set. Don’t be afraid to stamp on that colored cardstock!!! Everyone needs a large woodgrain stamp, don’t you think?
Here are a few more shots for you…See how Char added a little Graphic 45 Signature Series Cardstock along the bottom?
See you tomorrow!
Want to make this for yourself? Here’s the basic instructions for the calendar – if you have ever made an easel card; it is the same idea.
Cut a piece of Core’dinations cardstock 6″ x 12″ and fold in half. Then fold one end towards the center. This is the easel base. Cut a Core’dinations cardstock mat at 6″ x 4″ and a decorative piece for stamping or embossing at 5 3/4″ x 3 3/4″. Embellish as desired. Adhere mat to the long piece of cardstock that was folded in so that the bottoms line up (refer to first photo in the blog post if you’re not sure about this). The tiny piece I have under the sticky note pad is 6″ x 1″, and I got the printable calendar pages here:http://www.asensoft.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/two-months-blank-calendar-template-723×1024.jpg
