I have a Non Card for you today.  I had made an A-Frame Calendar post earlier in the week.  But after I had made it, but before posting, I saw quite a few other examples of it.  So I went back to my drawing board to try to find a different calendar.  I had a similar to this background card I had been playing with on my desk.  The lightbulb came on and I went from there. This idea for the base is not new by any means, but I have not seen one in some time.  So for a quick and easy calendar that can be personalized, in many ways, here you are.


Happy Tails, 148682


I just adore this Happy Tails stamp set!  And the Keep Calm is just perfect.  I remember a Host stamp set from several years ago that was a keep calm with multiple additions to it.  I want to say that to folks regularly !! LOL!!

This layout, as I said above was for a card, so it could easily be made as a card if you are not into making calendars.  Here is the base before I added the calendar and the small sticky note.


Sorry about the glare on the plastic holder.  This measures 4 X 6, which is not far off of an A2 card.  So into much change needed for a card.

There are not many items used here.  I did use the Stitched Shapes Framelits to cut out the puppy.  And I intentionally cut off the bottom to make more room to show the background.  I knew the calendar and sticky note would cover most of the pretty DSP, so I wanted to try to leave as much as I could uncovered.

The frame is a plastic / acrylic photo frame that has the bent edge.  I got it at Dollar Tree.  The calendar is from Taylored Expressions, and the sticky note is the 1 1/2 X 2 that I found in the drawer. 🙂  I need to be on the lookout for better colors of these.

Thank you so much for visiting.  I hope you will return on Monday.  All of the stamping supplies are listed at the bottom of the page.
