Seasonal Chums is a bit of a sleeper. It was featured in last year’s Holiday catalog, and to my surprise and delight was continued in the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog. The images are presented in pairs, front and back, and the coordinating framelits let you cut them out to create tags. The jack-o-lantern is an absolute classic!
- Stamps: Seasonal Chums, Petal Palette
- Color Palette: Whisper White, Basic Black, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Soft Suede
- Accessories: Big Shot, Seasonal Tags Framelits, Petals and More Thinlits, Black Glimmer paper (retired), Stampin’ Blends, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Wink of Stella, Aquapainter
How could you NOT love that face? I wanted to add a few more leaves behind it, and after a very thorough search of my stamps, I spotted the leaves in Petal Palette. They’re surrounding the blossoms images, and even had a thinlit to cut them out. I was pretty pleased when I found them!
The bats are from the Seasonal Tags Framelits and are the perfect accent to this not-so-spooky October calendar. There are lots of great little embellishments there – I’m telling you, these stamps and framelits should see more limelight!
If you’d like to make your own DIY Easel Calendar, this year I have permission to sell the PDF. It includes the12 months of 2019, a 2019 cover page, and cutting instructions. The calendars are quick to stamp since the format is 3 1/2″ square, making them ideal gifts. The easels are available online as well as in most brick-and-mortar craft stores, and an easel plus calendar pages fit perfectly in the Stampin’ Up! Acetate Card Boxes.
Cost for the PDF is $5. If you’ve purchased Calendar Kits or Refills from me in the past, I have your email on file and you can just leave a comment to let me know you’d like the PDF. You can also leave your email in the comments, or email me directly at AnneMatasci@gmail.com to let me know you want in on the deal. I’ll send you an invoice via Square, and once you’ve paid I’ll email your PDF. You don’t need an account to pay via Square. It’s easy as can be!
Just a note…this is the honor system. $5 is a very reasonable price for this PDF, and there are no limitations on your personal use. If your friends admire your calendars, please direct them to this post to purchase their own PDF. It would be easy to forward the PDF, but it’s not right.
