SDC46: Pocket or Purse Calendar

Seriously, how does the time go by so fast?  I'm so sorry I missed posting my last Stampotique Challenge card... it was waiting for me to find a memory card for my camera!!  I have found the most ancient card ever (128mb!!! LOL!!) and am now at least able to take a few pics before running out of room on the card!  I'm convinced my DH has the others in his gear from when we were travelling in November!! Gah!

Anyway, without waiting any longer, it's time for this week's Stampotique Designer's Challenge! This week Maria gave us the challenge to create a handy pocket calendar or purse calendar. The challenges are now Stampotique only so grab your favorite Stampotique images and join us for your chance to win a $30 gift certificate for Stampotique stamps.

Here's my little purse calendar (did I mention that I love little things to tuck in my purse?!?)  I know I've used this same monster before, but the idea hit and I had to run with it!! The fold is a slightly modified basic origami square base and since there were 4 flaps, I included 16 months (4 per flap) using the time and date online calendar creator.  I think I'll experiment with an acetate belly band or perhaps just a pretty ribbon closure!

  3. so different! I like the design on this one!

  4. Now that is VERY clever Val! It's perfect to keep tucked away. I'd love to know how you made it x

  5. Wow, that is VERY cool Val, love it and the little monster.
