4 Seasons Calendar

Spring Calendar

I had the idea to make a magnetic calendar earlier this year but the time has gotten away from me for 4 months! The time is right now since it's my turn to share a project here with you and the Whimsical Wishes Branching Out & Branching Out Coordinates are PERFECT for this project! When I had this idea, I didn't even know about this set coming out so I'm glad I didn't have time to do it back then!

This is one of the metal standing frames from the Target Dollar Spot from well over a year ago {I'm glad I bought more than I needed!} Since this project is interchangeable, I took designer papers from several of the key ingredients packages that Taylor has sold in her store over the past year: Spring-Easter key ingredients with spring blooms on the tree.

The decorated trees have magnets on the back as well as the Calendar Titles-2009 'A Year to Shine' which was made using my JustRite products: Harmony rectangle stamper and Times New Roman font set. I used the tear off calendar template on SCS, which can be changed two times to coordinate with the seasons. All the components are tucked into a clear 5.25" inch envelope and ready to gift! I already know who I'm going to give this to today!

Summer Calendar

Summer-Birthday Girl key ingredients, with pears & apples on the tree.

Fall Calendar

Fall - March 20 Key ingredients Subscription with acorns on the tree and
falling leaves on the ground.

Winter Calendar.

Winter-Christmas key ingredients with ornaments on the tree.

If you're not signed up for the Taylored Expressions Newsletter, be sure to do it; it's chock-full of information you need to know and highlights members of the design team. The link is on the side-bar of the Stamp a Sweet Impression blog and Taylored Expressions blog.

Hope you have a 'Sweet' Day!!
