Each month we 12 designers of the All-Star Tutorial Bundle offer a blog hop. We showcase a different project than we used in the bundle, but use the same products! As you can see, I used Party Pandas, I think that is my favorite Sale A Bration stamp set this year!

You can earn Party Panda for FREE, along with many other products during our Sale a Bration sale! This sale runs Jan. 3 – March 31st. Check out the Sale a Bration catalog HERE. Instructions for  this project are at the bottom of this post.

To make this desktop calendar:

  • The base is Bermuda Bay cardstock, 11″ x 5 1/2″, scored in half on the long side
  • The easel stand is 3″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 1/2″ and 2 1/2″ on the shorter side
  • Designer Series Paper is 5 1/4″ x 5 1/4″
  • Adhere the stand to the card as shown above
  • Position Large Number Framelits on top of donut Designer Series Paper and cut out the 2, 1 and 8, placing them carefully so the donut is where the zero would be in the number 2018
  • Adhere Designer Series Paper to cardstock base
  • Adhere the numbers 2, 1 and 8 to card front, using Foam Strips to give it a really good pop
  • The “0” is made by fussy cutting a donut from a different piece of Designer Series Paper and adhering it on top of the same shaped donut using Foam Strips
  • Stamp and cut out panda bear using Basic Black ink on Whisper White cardstock
  • Use an Xacto knife and cut around the panda’s paws so you can slip a donut in there
  • Punch a 1/4″ hole in Crumb Cake and Chocolate Chip cardstock
  • Then center the 3/4″ Circle Punch on top of the holes  you just punched and punch out (that way you can center the holes) They should look like this:
  • Take the Chocolate Chip cardstock and cut a curvy edge around it to simulate chocolate, then adhere to bottom donut part
  • Diecut some sprinkles and adhere to donut
  • Die cut just the edge of a scalloped circle framelit to simulate a bite has been taken out of the donut
  • Adhere donut in panda’s arms using Mini Dimensionals, then to card front
  • Adhere calendar to card front – large calendars found at Vippies HERE.
