Customer Gift – Desk Calendar Tropical Oasis. You will probably have seen the cards I made for my November Customer Thank You Packs, well this is the Gift that they were all sent. Coming up with something new each month is such fun and I do try to make sure I switch around on what I send. Of course at the end of the year it is easy to just come up with a Desk Calendar, but this one also includes somewhere to put a few sheets of note paper. These will always be on hand for those quick little jottings.
When I decided to make these desk calendars I had not really thought about how many I would need to make and had actually not bought enough of the Calendars! A quick trip to the local shops put that right, so it was simply a question of selecting card and Designer Series Paper. As I was using the Peaceful Poppy Suite for the card I decided to use the Tropical Oasis papers and selected one that has a small all over pattern.
I should stress that the dimensions I have used are specific to the Calendar and paper that I have selected. You many need to change the dimensions a little if yours are not the same size. This is not too tricky to do, particularly if yours are smaller. You can leave the base the same and simply change the dimensions of the other elements.
The Tropical Oasis Suite is so vibrant and is one of those fantastic packs that is suitable for both men and women, and indeed children! This means that you are pretty certain to be able to use this for a lot of your crafting needs. The B Sides of all of the papers are pretty ‘solid’ so can be used in Scrapbooks AND as mats for cards. Having lots of options means you are more likely to use the whole pack, well if you are anything like me!!
One tiny word of warning about the Desk Calendars, don’t overload the front paper pocket or you may find that the whole thing falls forward because of the excess weight. Oh, and if you are in North America, as your basic card is a different size the measurements will be different. As I don’t have your card size I am not able to provide you with measurements. Sorry for that!!!
