Hey there! It's time for the Grand Vacation Achiever's Blog Hop! This month our theme is Seeing 3D. We're sure you'll find incredible inspiration from the projects you are about to see!
For the "3-D" theme I created another easel calendar for Santa's workshop, this time with a masculine theme. I used new Occasions Catalog products I was able to "pre-pre-order" because I attended the OnStage Local in Dallas a couple of weeks ago. The "Going Global" product suite is perfect to create an easel post-it note calendar for a guy's desk:
This calendar folds flat to fit into a custom envelope or box created with the Envelope Punch Board.
I used Basic Black and Delightful Dijon, two colors from the Going Places Designer Series Paper. My husband is a self-taught astronomer, so I think he would love this constellation design!
The black map behind the calendar was embossed with the new World Traveler Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I sponged lightly with Whisper White Craft ink to bring out the design.
"I thank my lucky stars for you" was heat-embossed with gold powder and punched with a 1" Circle Punch. I used the 2" Circle Punch for the globe and the Washi Label Punch for the sentiment.

I can't give you a supply list for this project because they are not available to order until the Occasions Catalog goes live on January 5th, but there are lots of great specials going on right now during the Thanksgiving week. You can check them all out and place your order in my online store if you live in the U.S. :
