I was thrilled to receive one of these cute little calendars at OnStage in Orlando back in November.  Brian King, my upline, and our InKing Royalty Team gathered with a Team from England and Netherlands one evening.  During the evening we snacked , of course, and did a card exchange.  Lotte Noordzig-Walther made these adorable A-Frame desk calendars and I could not wait to get home and try it.  I finally ordered the calendars.  (I got mine from Taylored Expressions.)  But with the holidays, and the new products, I had pushed it to the corner of my desk.  I made my first one last week and was thrilled.  I had used retired DSP for the first attempt and now have created one with current products.  So here it is>


Stampin' Up!, Flowering Desert, So Hoppy Together, Broadway Bound, Jackie Beers

Flowering Desert, 148700


And here is a bit of the side view to see the A-Frame.



The one Lotte gave us had card stock as the base so you do not see the opposite side of the DSP.  I obviously did not think of that when I used this DSP.  But I loved the theme of sparkles and fabulous.

I used a variety of Foil Sheets on this.  I needed it to match the DSP, which is Broadway Bound by the way.  Behind the calendar is Silver Foil, behind the sentiment is Gold Foil , and the heart is from the Sale-A-Bration catalog.  It comes in a pair of Grapefruit Grove and Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheets.  I used the Lovely Lipstick for my heart.  And isn’t that heart beautiful?  It is from the Be Mine Stitched Framelits.

The sentiments are from Flowering Desert for the Awesome and So Hoppy Together for the You can do anything.  Sometimes we need these subtle reminders that we are Awesome!!

Lotte’s directions on her blog are not in English.  Luckily the measurements were in English.  Her blog is www.alottestampingfun.nl  .  I have included the measurements below.  The A-Frame is the main point and you can decorate it as you see fit.

I hope you have a wonderful day and Thank You for stopping by.  Tomorrow is the Pals Blog Hop, so please come back and Hop Along with us and see all the great projects.
