Hi Stampers. Happy (fresh start) Monday. My goal for this week is to get more organized. One thing I need to keep me organized is a good calendar!  I need to use my planner more… but a good desk calendar for quick reference is good, too. For today’s post, I’m combining an easel card with a calendar and tossing in a note pad to make it even more useful.

You have probably seen me do many easel cards in the past.  I’ve done regular easel cards (see one here), sideways easel cards (see one here), some with a twist (see one here) and even some fancy easel cards (see one here)…

The basics of the calendar are the same as an easel card.  I started with an Mossy Meadow card base 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5-1/2″.  The front of the easel has an extra 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ piece of Mossy Meadow CS, with a layer of the Ornate Garden DSP over that.

The small calendars can be purchased online at Taylored Expressions.  I mounted the calendar onto a layer of Poppy Parade CS that was slightly larger.

Once propped up, you see that it is lined with another layer of the same DSP.  You will also see that I have covered a post it note page with a back layer of Bumblebee CS and a front layer of Ornate Garden DSP.

The sentiment was stamped using the Ornate Thanks stamp set onto a scrap of Very Vanilla CS that was then die cut using the stitched rectangle dies.  That was mounted over an Old Olive frame die cut using the Ornate Frames Dies.  These are then mounted on Stampin’ Dimensionals.  More detailed information can be found in the video below.
