I had lots of fun this week sharing on my Facebook Live video how to make these handy little desktop calendars, that are quick and easy to create! I used the Lift me Up bundle to decorate them, combined with the stitched shape framelits (don’t you love how those framelits really add pop to your images and backgrounds!)
These are so handy to keep on your desk or by a phone for a quick reference for dates. I managed to pick up some of these little calendars at a local Papercraft Show, but they can usually be found online if you are looking for some.
And you can get the gorgeous Carried Away Designer Series Paper (DSP) for FREE when you spend $90! That’s as easy as purchasing the Lift Me Up Bundle in clear mount and a pack of Night of Navy Cardstock! You can shop securely anytime in my online store HERE from ANYWHERE in Australia!
Below is the list and measurements of what you need to make your very own calendars and go to My Paper Oasis Youtube channel to see how to create it 🙂
What you need –
Base – Night of Navy Cardstock: a piece 8″ x 4″ and scored at 4″ and 6″ on long side; a piece 4″ x 3 3/4″ for top section; a piece 3 1/8″ x 2″ for under the calendar itself.
DSP (Carried Away) – a piece 3 7/8″ x 3 5/8″ for top section and a piece 3 7/8″ x 2 3/8″ for under calendar.
Scrap of Mint Macaron for largest square of Stitched Shape Framelits.
Whisper White for stamped image and cloud.
Don’t forget – there are amazing benefits to be had by shopping, hosting and joining during Saleabration! Just ask me how!
I am a bit excited to share with you today another trick I learnt at on stage using Stampin Up’s Fine Tip Glue Pen! In my last post I mentioned that it dries faster than dimensional magic, but did you know it can be used like dimensional magic! Neither did I! So, on my Stamp It Sunday Facebook Live Video this week, I set about to show you how it was done!
I absolutely love the shimmery christmas bauble effect – if I do say so myself!
How cute are the mice out of that set! I held off getting it for a while – but with the brilliant discount until the end of November I just couldn’t resist any longer! And they are super simple to colour with a little bit of ink and an aqua painter!
Here’s a closer look at that effect!
Isn’t it pretty! And it doesn’t dry sticky AT ALL! I can see so many new projects happening with this now I have had a play – so be warned – you may see a few more tips and tricks with the Fine Tip Glue Pen in the future!
You can watch my video over at You Tube at my channel – My Paper Oasis – don’t forget to subscribe!
And here are all the measurements so you can make your very own!
Card Base – Night of Navy Cardstock cut on short side at 4 1/8″
Gold Foil Piece – 5 1/4″ x 3 5/8″
Shimmery White Cardstock – 5′ x 3 3/8″
I used the second smallest circle shape from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies and Shimmery White Cardstock for the bauble.
I hope you enjoy creating with this new technique!

The countdown to Christmas is well and truly on! So is the card making!
This was one we made at a recent card class for a stamp a stack. The original design I saw was from Chaiki Haverstick – but I changed it up a bit for my own class. Its relatively quick and simple to create, so great for a stamp a stack so you an get loads done in time for Christmas!
And I love Night of Navy teamed with silver for Christmas.
Hope you are all well and truly on your way to having your cards completed and sent now.
