Calendar Christmas Gift with ABNH

Welcome to the 2nd week of our Holiday Festivities with A Blog Named Hero.

This week we are making gifts with the goodies that Santa left us from the following companies: Hero ArtsSimon Says StampKelly PurkeyLawn FawnCAS-ual FridaysAvery ElleAmerican Crafts Amy Tangerine and Neat & Tangled.  Thank you so much!

I decided to make a 2014 Desk Calendar.  The calendar is 3.5" x 5.25" and sits on a small wooden easel that I picked up at the dollar store.  I created the calendar portion in MS Word, so it's quick to make and print out and then you can stamp away in the blank portion.

I really wanted this to be made using simple stamping with no layering.  November was the most involved because the snowflakes are embossed but even that was quick to do.
