Club Scrap Aspen Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to another
Club Scrap Blog Hop.
This month we present to you the Aspn kit.

Have you come over her from Tricia's Blog
with her always so efficient ideas?

Well, if you get lost,you can always go back to the
where you find a list of all the participants 
you must see with all their
wonderful and inspirational creations.

This time of the year, I am always into calenders
and this is what I came up with for you:
It is a desktop calendar that you cannot use only for
the next year,but for all the years to come. 
Just change the number of the year!

For this project I used:
Aspen papers
Aspen Stamps
Old set of Monthly stamps from 2007
Centenial casualnubers 2007
a bind-it-all machine

Take one 12x12 inch cardstock of your choice
and fold it in half.
Cut it at 9,5 inch vertical. Use your score-pal to score
at 4 inches from the folded side. The calendar
will be on the top side and below the fold 
will be where it stands on.

The folded side will be put into the bind-it-all machine
to make the holes for the owires.
Information about the use of th bind-it-all
you can find here.

I am thankful to have the pops in my kit
and they were cut just right for this project.
I used these strips for the

Each card is 2"x 3,25""  and the numbers are 2"x 2,5.
I rounded each card with a corner punch.

For the decorating the backgrounds of the cards
I used the UM Aspen stamps
and also these months and number stamps 
still in my collection from 2007. 
Here you see the finished project,where the owire
holds the cards. This way you can just bring them
to the back of the calendar to adjust the right date.
And you can just make it into any date.
The blackcards are 12, one for every month.
The days of the week are seven cards and
for the numbers you need on one side just 4 cards
(0,1,2,3) and 10 on the other side (1,2,3....9 and 0).
See, any date can be made this way.

A fun sentiment on the calendar for decoration

and the number of the year. This is done with 
the cricut machine and can be changed every year.

Now I also work on another calendar idea,but not
finished yes,please come back on Saturday to see
my other desktop calendar.

And now more inspiration on 
I am just as curious as you
to see what she has come upwith this time.

Have a creative day!
