Kits make our lives SO easy! In the new 2015 Occasions Catalog there are 5 fabulous new kits! Oh, my! I already have classes scheduled for two of these new kits! My first kit class of 2015 is going to be the Perpetual Birthday Calendar Kit.
Who doesn’t need to keep track of birthdays? Way back when, Stampin’ Up! used to carry a perpetual birthday calendar that was spiral bound. I have one that I’ve never done anything with. There’s always something new coming out that I want to play with! When I saw the Perpetual Birthday Calendar Kit (#137950 $15.95) in the new Occasions Catalog I knew it would be a perfect class for January. We had the birthday card class back in December so now people can get all those cards ready to send out when they know who’s birthday is coming up!
The kit is pretty fun. You have a sheet lined with all of the days for each month. Some have 30 days, some 31 and one has 28. Other than that they’re blank. There’s a COORDINATING (yes, I’m smiling while I type that word!) Perpetual Birthday Calendar stamp set (#137167 $23.95) with the months of the year and 12 little patterns that you decorate the month sheets with. There are also banners and other shapes as well as a die-cut alphabet. The kit comes with a covered board and clip so you clip each month to it. It also comes with glitter and sequins to help you decorate the months.
I completed my calendar this last weekend. The hardest part of it for me was figuring out what I wanted to do for each month. The kit does come with pictures but they’re small and in black and white. Of course I couldn’t follow the directions exactly! Ha! In the catalog they list color suggestions so I stuck with those. Now that I’ve made one of these basically following the directions I’m thinking of making one and just using any colors I want! I know….I’m a rebel!
These finished kits would make great gifts. (Mother’s Day isn’t too far off!) The nice thing about the kits is that they come in a really nice box that will be perfect for gift giving! Order one (or two!) today!
Have a great day! Take care and Happy Stamping!
