Flying Home for the Summer


Ah, I miss those days when May meant my collegians were headed home for a summer with good ole Mom and Dad! (Just to be clear, I DO NOT MISS paying collegiate tuition.)

I’m still trying to use my 2016-2018 In Colors – you’ll see a couple in this project.

Maui Stamper Stampin' Up! DIY Easel Calendar May 2018 Flying Home

  • Stamps: Flying Home (Occasions 2018)
  • Color Palette: Whisper White, Sweet Sugarplum (16-18), Smokey Slate, Daffodil Delight, Pear PIzazz, Pool Party, Flirty Flamingo (16-18)
  • Accessories:  Paper Snips, Stampin’ Dimensionals (both sizes), Stampin’ Write Markers, Watercolor Pencils

The bird houses were just a smidge (that is a scientific measurement and it means what it sounds like) too big for the calendar format. After scratching my head for a bit, I came up with the idea of stamping the images in Smokey Slate twice – once on the calendar, and once on a scrap. I fussy cut the houses and lifted them on dimensionals. I was really happy with the way it turned out.

I cut off the rooster weather vane and the little strings on the end of the banner because they were already on the calendar, and they would have been ridiculous to cut out. Even I have my limits.
