SU Wondrous Wreath Finale with a free kit!

December 17, 2015

It’s here…the long awaited finale of the SU Wondrous Wreath Easel Calendar Box! I am finishing up this season with a back to school theme for August/September using the SU Little Letters Thinlit dies and the Note from the SU Tap, Tap, Tap stamp set.

Don’t you just love the Crumb Cake and Baked Brown Sugar leaves on the wreath? It really makes the primary school colors pop!

October’s theme was a no-brainer with the cute little ghost and bats from the SU Holiday Home stamp set and the essential Teeny Tiny Wishes for the sentiment:

SU Wondrous Wreath October

November’s wreath features the changing colors of Autumn with Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, and Garden Green. The sentiment comes from the often overlooked Holiday Invitation stamp set in the back of the outgoing Mini-catalog. I used the Project Life Cards and Labels Framelits cut down a bit to border the sentiment :

 If you are overwhelmed with the idea of making 12 wreaths for this project,

just do 4 for the changing seasons!

And your surprise is….. a tidy little page of instructions for this project HERE!

1/4/15- OOPS! As I was making up the free kits, I noticed a typo on the instructions- on the little box that holds the calendars, you score in 1/2″ not 1/4″ on all four sides of the 3 5/8″ x 4 1/8″ piece of cardstock. 

Merry Christmas kiddos!

If you make an ONLINE order of $35 with me by the end of December 2014, the first week of January 2015, I will mail you a complimentary kit with the Soft Suede Easel Calendar Box and Hardwood panels cut, scored, and ready to assemble! All you need to do is stamp your various wreaths and pop on the buttons!  

*Use the Hostess Code: 2BN7NJDQ and

 be put into a drawing for a SU treat from me, too!

I have two more pics of the SU Wondrous Wreath Easel Calendar Box for you today…

I seemed to have misplaced a wreath (even though I have a handy drawer to keep them in!) So, we are going to have this spring flowery wreath with posies from the Pictogram Punches stamp set (punched with the Itty Bitty Accents flower punch) cover the months of April, May, and June. You could decorate your wreath with Happy Mother’s Day or Father’s Day for those months, too.

I think my favorite wreath is for July and September’s patriotic holidays-

just love that red, white and blue!

Four more wreaths to come with your surprise waiting at the end…

make sure to check back, friends!

To make the project, you need to stamp four panels with the SU Hardwood background stamp onto Naturals White cardstock:


Then use your panels to create the door on the easel which is 5″ x 3 3/4″ , the four panels on the door, and the slats that cover the sides of the box and the drawer front.



Set the Hardwood pieces aside and construct the box out of Soft Suede cardstock:




Now make the box that slides into the drawer:



You add the easel to the top of the base with the drawer:


Then, you add the Soft Suede door panel to the easel:


Make the box the calendar sits in:

1/4/15- OOPS! As I was making up the free kits, I noticed a typo on the instructions- on the little box that holds the calendars, you score in 1/2″ not 1/4″ on all four sides of the 3 5/8″ x 4 1/8″ piece of cardstock. 


Here is how  it looks as an easel with the Vintage Faceted Buttons…

and so I leave you with a sneak peek of what is to come….


Enjoy some stamping today!

Happy First day of December Everyone!

I spent an awesome week with all my kiddos just being lazy, and now I am back to blogging! Last month, I had the opportunity to share a project with my friends in Florida at Stampcation 2014. I was so nervous to demonstrate in front of 100 demos but my friends cheered me on, and my upline Linda Heller was there to literally hold my hand! I now have a New Year’s goal of doing some videos but for now this little photo tutorial will have to do…

Here is what I made for my demonstration using the SU Wondrous Wreath stamp set (and a lot of other stamp sets!) It is what I am calling an “Easel Calendar Box.

Here is the easel calendar with its drawer open that holds the wreaths!

The easel stands up against two clear Vintage Faceted Buttons.
