Countdown Calendar


Page 36 of my Holiday Mini Catalog is WORN OUT!! I used it to re-create this Countdown Calendar using Stampin' Up's new 25 and Counting stamp set, the 1" Square Punch and the Bigz Peekaboo Frames Die with my Big Shot.

I had a lot of fun creating and I hope you enjoy and are inspired by my photos! I kept true to the catalog version, with the exception of the die cut numbers. I did not have the same die set, so I used the retired Go Go Boots numbers and for the #13, I had to improvise since those numbers were too long to fit onto my frame. I used the "i" from the (hostess) Happiest Birthday Wishes stamped onto Whisper White with Cherry Cobbler ink and cut out. The "3" is the same as day 23.

If you are interested in getting all of the cut out elements (die cuts, punches and designer paper already cut to size) to create your own calendar, I am selling the kits for $12 US only including postage. This DOES NOT include the stamped images, you must have the set 25 & Counting already.
Additional supplies you provide: Whisper White, Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler card stock for stamping your images, inks, adhesive, embellishments such as buttons, bells, ribbon, linen thread, clothespin, dimensionals, glue dots, pearls, rhinestones, brads, paper piercer, 12 x 12 backing paper, 12 x 12 frame, frame stand. Stamped images punched after stamping, so your project will look like my finished project you would need the following punches: 1/2", 3/4", 1", 1-1/4" Circle, Square Scallop and Itty Bitty Punch Pack.

Please EMAIL ME directly to purchase your kit. I will be taking orders only until September 15th, so please don't delay.

Here are more close-ups of this fun calendar!

What did you put behind the doors.

Dear Dorothy,
I did not put anything "behind" the doors. This entire calendar is made from card stock and designer series paper. You just open the doors and peek at the stamped images. Hope this helps!
