Today we are sharing calendar ideas to get you started this new year! We love what Kendra and Mynn have done! We begin with Kendra with her January in review calendar!

Hello Inspired By Stamping Friends, Kendra, here today to share a Calendar idea with you.

It is so much fun to create calendars!

And I don’t know about you, but I need a calendar or two to keep myself organized!! 😉

The Pretty Planners set is so perfect to help create your own calendars!

And they don’t even have to be a full calendar like I have done, you can create mini ones for each day if you like.  I just like full calendars.

Here’s a close-up of the month:

“January” was created with the Fancy Alphabet set, as well as the year:

The arrows around the frame (which was computer generated) are from the Pretty Planners set!

There are so many fun elements in that set!!

And lastly a close-up of a few of the days:

After stamping the “Birthday” from the Pretty Planners set, I went back and wrote in whose Birthday it was!

Have a lovely day!!

Hi, friends!  I’m here with a new creation using products from the Inspired By Stamping store.  Today I have an idea for a desk calendar.  Come and take a peek!

This is a desk calendar that fits into a CD case.  I bought it years ago and it has been waiting to be altered.  I used the words Pretty Planners stamp set and the Teeny Tiny Greetings set along with images from the Flowers Bloom and Spring Lilacs sets to jazz up these pre-printed calendar pages.

After fixing up all the pages, I decided to add a little something to the edge of the CD case to make it a bit more pretty.  Some crocheted lace trim from the Crocheted Trim Collection I and three flowers from a package of small mixed flowers did the trick!

I love how this turned out and I just adore how easy it was to put the whole thing together with these stamps and products!  The whole thing took less than an hour!  What a great gift idea, don’t you think?  It would even mail well because it folds flat!

That’s all for me today, friends!  Hop on over to the Inspired By Stamping store to grab all these products and create your own calendar today!  HUGS and happy stamping to you all!
