Counting Down Already?



Yes, it is only October but before we know it, it’ll be time to countdown to the Holidays! I am preparing for my Fall/Winter classes at our local rec centre and this is going to be one of them.

This super cute cookie sheet calendar uses the Merry Moments Designer series paper, textured Chocolate Chip cardstock and the Tree Trimmings stamp set. I used the Go Go boots alphabet in my Sizzix Big Shot for the letters and numbers and the 1 3/4″ circle for the circles.

The chipboard square was sponged with Chocolate Chip craft ink and is magnetic so it can move from day to day.


This is  a fairly quick project (other than cutting out all the  numbers) and would make a great inexpensive gift for a teacher – either for personal use or classroom use.

I will be doing this class at my home as well but a little differently. I am going to use chipboard for the numbers and each participant will get their own set of chipboard included in their class fee.

Hope you like it!
