Calendar and Notepad Gift

I finished another Christmas Gift last night. This one I can post since it is not obvious who the recipient will be.

I used the Papertrey Ink Calendar Basics stamp, Die and calendar pages to put together this desk calendar for a friend. The only non-Papertrey Ink supply was the Medallion stamp from Stampin Up, and UTEE. I love this stamp and borrowed it from my sister just for this project! I could not find my clear embossing powder (until after I was done and putting everything away) so I used UTEE. Not perfect but I like the dimension.

Here are the pages for each month:

I also made a coordinating notepad using the Take Note stamp set and the text type impression plate. (all supplies are Papertrey Ink except for the Basic Grey Magnets)


And added this detail to the back using Papertrey Ink's Just for You set:
 I hope that she likes it!

I really like this medallion image from Stampin'Up, but ever since I have found PTI, I haven't made another order with them!! It is stunning on all the different coloured background papers. Great job.
