2015 Desktop Calendar

Hi everyone! It's Yuki here with my first blog post on the Lawnscaping blog :). One of my favorite things about the end of the year is buying new calendars for the following year. This year instead of buying a calendar, I decided to make my own desktop calendar to give as a gift.


I reused an old CD calendar case I had from a previous year as my calendar stand. For the dates, I used a calendar stamp set I had purchased specifically with this project in mind. However, you could also use calendar stickers, printables or even write the dates by hand. I found the stamp to be the most versatile and convenient since you can stamp it in different colors and even heat emboss it. I decided to make each month unique and tried to  highlight key dates such as holidays and even my friend's birthday.

Since I used a TON of different products (too many to list), I listed the Lawn Fawn products used for each month under the photo captions.

Winter Penguin; Yeti, Set, Go.

Critters in the Forest, Hats Off To You, Grassy Border

Yay you made it to the end of the post! I know that was a lot of scrolling LOL, however I hope you enjoyed today's post. Although this project was a little more time consuming than most and did require some extra planning, it was super fun to make and I'm really happy with the end result. I hope my friend likes her handmade gift as much as I do!

Thanks again for stopping by and be sure to visit the Lawnscaping Challenges Facebook page for even more awesome inspiration. And also, don't forget to check out the latest Lawnscaping Challenge: Merry Christmas, you have until Wednesday to play along!
