SDC46: Pocket or Purse Calendar


This week at Stampotique Designer's Challenge Maria gave us the challenge was to create a handy pocket calendar or purse calendar.  The challenges are now STAMPOTIQUE ONLY (non-Stampotique will not be eligible for the prize).  Join us for your chance to win a $30 gift certificate for Stampotique stamps.

This was definitely a challenge for me as I didn't have a small calendar to work with.  Vicki and I were google chatting one night while stamping and I came across these papers from Simple Stories Happy Day pad and it had these cute little calendars in there.  While there were no dates on them, they were easy to add on myself.


It's a long calendar pocket book, about 6.5" long, but just a little over 3" wide.  For the cover, I again used a piece of the patterned paper and stamped this sentiment which I thought was appropriate for a New Year.


Join us over at Stampotique Designer's Challenge this week for our $30 gift certificate for Stampotique Stamps.
