Calendars for 2011

It is only August, but some things have to be completed ... like these calendar easel cards... and Christmas cards (oh boy, I need to start on those!).
I've made a bunch of calendars so far with various designs. I have more to make, but here is a look at the easel card design with a theme of 'time'.

Here is what this easel calendar looks like when opened. I made 4 calendars with this design and the front panels are the same, but the base for each of the 4 are different. This base contains a piece I cut using a nestabilities die.

My Stampers Anonymous 'T' stamp seemed so appropriate for calendars so I used it again with a different design. I also have the cuttlebug embossing folder 'numbers' so I used that together with the stamp to create these easel card calendars.

Here's one of the previously shown easel calendars opened and standing up. Each of the calendars contains a different quote. I typed the quotes and printed them from the computer. The quote was layered onto the piece of scrapbook paper that I attached to the base of the card. I attached a piece of ribbon across the base so that the front of the easel card could be propped up against it.
