2019 is HERE! I cannot believe how fast it came upon us! I am trying to become more intentional as time seems to speed up…because I feel that the memories go by so fast.
For the calendar this year I am doing something that is a break from the ‘normal’ Happy New Year page… I wanted it to be more of a resolution or a mantra for how to approach the year. AND…I got to use one of my favorite stamp sets…Rooted In Nature.
I fell in love with this simple set. It has a variety of trees and leaves and can make just about ANYTHING. The coordinating framelits also make cutting the images out a breeze.
For this month I used (left to right) blackberry bliss, berry burst, and rich razzleberry. The cardstock background is Berry Burst. The velum overlay has the sentiment that also comes with the Rooted In Nature set.
Happy 2019 to you. I hope it is a year of intentional memories and time with your loved ones.
I also have just a handful of these calendars left! If you would like one, leave a comment and I will contact you about getting one to you!
Stop by Anne and Cheryl to see what New Year’s excitement they have going on!
One of my favorite things to do in the summertime when we went to visit my Grandma’s was to run out and get a special treat when the icecream truck went by. So, when Stampin’ Up released the Tasty Truck Stamp Set (now retired), I just KNEW it had to be for my summertime calendar!
This is such a fun little truck! I used the watercolor pencils to color in the details! I like the pencils because they are very pigmented and work well as a pencil or as a watercolor. It’s super easy to use!
Hope you have a fun summer! Head over to see what Anne and Cheryl have for you!
I love that April is here. For me, it’s a signal that spring is here and in full swing… Back in KS, you couldn’t always count on March being full on spring… There could always be one last snow storm that snuck in…. On Maui too…this seemed to be the case for this year. Not the snow… Mind you .. we have rain. But these last couple of days of March, leading in to April are beautiful! Sunny Spring Time! Bring on flowers!
This flower and background image comes from the You’ve Got This stamp set and I love it in it’s simplicity. Easy to stamp but also is a striking image. I used the simple black outline here but it would also be fun to color with our stampin’ blends…
I loved it so much I also decided to make it the cover of the 2018 calendar…

Happy February! As we turn the page to this month, love is in the air!! I love these little lady bugs. So cute. Reminds me of those I love in my own life…
This month is so simple, but cute. And, it was super fast to make… The stamp set is Love You Lots (obviously….) and did a quick marker color and that is that! This would also make a cute little 3×3 card too for your valentine!

We don’t have large Oak Trees in Hawaii… (we don’t have small ones either…), but thanks to this stamp set, we have ACORNS!! And cute ones!!
Using non-traditional fall colors helps brighten up the acorns! It’s a fun spin on a Thanksgiving classic…
Go see what Anne and Cheryl have for you today!
If you’ve been following these little calendar posts, you will probably have noticed that I am a FAN of the Lighthearted Leaves stamp set (and coordinating framelits). HUGE FAN.
So, It was a no-brainer when trying to decide what to use for October… And, the corrugated cardstock!! LOVE IT. The background lines are from the Chalk Lines stamp set… You notice, that cover for the calendar is the same everything…just a different background paper color… Head on over to see what Anne and Cheryl have for you!
September brings this beautiful bouquet of flowers… From the Awesomely Artistic stamp set! Such a beautiful set of flowers.
As an aside, I’ve seen this stamp used as part of the new ‘coloring book’ craze…. the detailed outline image allows for the ‘zen’ coloring. Stamping then coloring! Couldn’t be more fun!Anne and Cheryl have something fun for September as well!
