ABC Friday~with Tracy

Hey!  It's Tracy back again with my post today is for "Anything But a Card Friday".  As this week's trendsetter I get to share a project that's both inexpensive and NOT a card.  There are tons of ideas out there for crafty desk calendars and I believe I first saw the idea for using a plastic picture frame on Lena Katrine's blog quite a while back.  I found my frame at Wal-mart for a couple of dollars, but you probably can find them at the dollar store also.
My hubby helped me with this project by drilling some holes through the frame for the binder rings that hold the pages.

I created two pages, one for January which of course is over, and one for February, using stamps from two of the last new releases from TSG, Sparkly and Bright and Be My Valentine.

The pages are super simply constructed with just some layering, the calendar, and a coordinating image.  This will come in really handy when I'm trying to figure out project due dates and when challenge results will be posted.
Hope you'll take this super simple idea and make it your own.
I'll be back tomorrow with my last Trendsetter of the Week project for Stampbook Saturday.


  1. They are both fab pages, Tracy! What a lovely way to count the days away!

  2. I have been using these frames they work awesome, where did you find your calender pages? what size frame did you use?

  3. Very, very cool! I will be saving this idea in my "home made crafts for Christmas presents" file! Thanks for the great idea!


Thank you for visiting the TSG Blog, happy stamping!
