In Love with Stamping Spring & Summer Blog hop 2014 with FREE Tutorial


Welcome to our In Love with Stampin – New Spring & Summer Catalogue and Sale-a-Bration Blog hop…

Today myself and several other Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators have put together some projects and Cards using Stampin' Up! products from the newly released Spring & Summer seasonal catalogue and the current Sale-a-Bration promotion ... so please sit back and relax and enjoy hoping from blog to blog – why not grab a Coffee or Tea, pen & paper just incase you’d like to make a note of any items you love and want to add to your crafty stash or wish list along the way…

The project im sharing with you is a Perpetual Desk calendar – using the Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Papers which are FREE with a £45 order…


Days of the week:


Months: made using the NEW Scallop tag punch



I made little dividers to hold the tags with a divider between the months and the days too..




Cubes: 2 x 16cm x 21cm score and cut as below:


Score at 5, 10, 15 and 20cm along long side then

5, 10, and 15cm on short side 


Before sticking together to create cube – decorate cube flat and adhere numbers as follows:

Numbers for Perpetual Calendar – the idea is you use the 6 as a 9

Cube 1 : 0, 1, 2, 4, 5 and 6

Cube 2: 1, 2, 3, 6, 7, and 8

to make the Tags – cut card stock at 5cm x 10cm then punch with scallop Tag punch

decorate as you wish – i printed my months and days of the week off with a word document.. then cut them to my preferred size..

Calendar holder:

Card Stock: 26.5cm x 18.5cm

score on long side at 8cm and 18.5cm

score on short side at 10.5cm

Mark 5cm on each side as below – cut away shaded area.. see below:


before assembling decorate with dsp, i decorated the back inside of my holder too just beacuse it shows above the tags…

The dividers

1 divider – cut card stock at 4cm x 16.5cm score at 3cm and 13.5cm

divider 2 – cut card stock at 4cm x 9xm score at 3 and 6cm

see below:



Then adhere holder to base…

Chipboard Base – 10 x 12.5cm cover in dsp then adhere to base with red double sided tape

and voila … any problems please dont hesitate to contact me on 01842 828643 or 07545 220477
