My Pink Stamper Design Team Project - Family


The design team theme for May at My Pink Stamper is "Family". My husband and I both have large families ... he's the second of eight children and I'm the youngest of six. So I thought I would make a calendar/card holder to help keep track of everyone's special days. This is actually a very quick and easy project ... I'm sure I'll be making more of these for gifts!

I used the Card Organizer tutorial from Splitcoast Stampers ... look for it here, and the calendar is a PDF file ... you can find it here.


The details -

Size: Front and back covers 6.25" x 8", inside pages 6" x 7.75"
Paper: 12" x 12" double sided paper and coordinating card stock from Stampin' Up
Cricut: Owl and branch from 'Create a Critter' 
Sentiment: Stamps from My Pink Stamper's Everyday Occasions and Simply Sweet Occasions sets; stamped with Versa Mark
Extras: Ribbon, Cuttlebug and embossing folders, computer generated calendar, Bind-it-All


Now, head on over to My Pink Stamper to see what my design team sisters have come up with ... their "Family" projects are AWESOME!!
