altered desk calendar & SCS member company

I got this wooden calendar/note set at Wal-Mart. It was plain wood, there were numbers stamped on the cubes and the month's stamped on the long blocks, but I covered those up. The two long blocks on the outside are stored behind the January block, I just wanted you to see them. I painted the ends of the long blocks and edges of the holder with Making Memories paint, after that dried I painted on the Tattered Rose Distress Crackle Paint by Ranger, LOVE this stuff, it instantly makes what you're working on vintage!

I used a chipboard piece from the new soon to be released Sweet Chips chipboard pieces by Crafty Secrets. I stamped "Calendar" and the months from the Calendar set, the tiny rose from the Baby Girl set and the numbers on the cubes from the A Sexy Little Number set. All the stamps and patterned paper are by Crafty Secrets! I cut and glued on the papers from the Pastel Paper Pad. I also used buttons, rickrack and lace. There is a place behind the calendar chipboard piece that holds a notepad and pen. Now I'm all ready for 2008!!

Crafty Secrets is a new Member Company now on SCS! You need to go over there and check it out. You'll find all the latest on Crafty Secrets new releases and chit chat with Sandy Redburn the owner and design team members too! Believe me, you'll fall in love with all things Crafty Secrets, I did!

I hope y'all have a great relaxing weekend!
I'm going to do some Christmas shopping I think, ACK, not relaxing, huh? *grin*

Thanks for stopping by!
