Wildflower Fields Fridge Mini Calendars - Blackberry Bliss

Good evening everyone. A few days ago, on my facebook page,  I’ve posted some fridge mini calendars I’ve made as a thank you gifts for my customers. But they were such a hit that I thought I will make a blog post, to show how to make them. Just a warning, it’s gonna be picture heavy 😉

I’ve bought these mini calendars on eBay while ago, but due to chronic fatigue I just couldn’t push myself to sit down and craft – maybe except for the cards once in a while. But I was wondering about customers gifts the other day and had a lightbulb moment – why not make cute magnetic fridge calendars?! Each calendar measures approx 2-7/8″ x 1-7/8″, and on their size, I’ve based my design.

The base for my calendar measures 3″x 4″ – here I’ve used Hello Honey. Designer Series Paper measures 2-7/8″x 2″ and Whisper White piece for stamping measures 1-1/2″x 2″. I rounded all the edges of my base, top edges of DSP and right top corner of Whisper White. I’ve used my Envelope Punch Board to do so, but you could use the corner rounder punch if you have one.

I stamped “a little something cute…” sentiment from Something To Say stamp set on my Whisper White pieces. Next, I stamped floral images from Flowering Fields stamp set. I just love this set! Don’t forget that this beautiful stamp set you can earn free with every £45 purchase during Sale-a-bration.


I’ve used Hello Honey for butterflies, Old Olive for stems and leaves, and Lost Lagoon and Calypso Coral for flowers. I’ve used ink pads as well as Stampin’ Markers to do my stamping. I have to say here, I love that all Stampin’ Up’s Designer Series Papers got all coordinating colours listed at the back of the paper pack. It makes creating so much easier if you don’t have to work out which colours to use. I also sponged stamped panels, so they stand out nicely from the background.

To embellish my Blackberry Bliss calendars I’ve used Silver 1/8″ Ribbon as it looked pretty neat on a dark background. But it didn’t work as good on the light one. So I cut “skinny” strips of cardstock in Lost Lagoon and Hello Honey, smooshed Versamark over them and heat embossed with Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder. I love this gentle shimmer.

I assembled my calendars using Tombow glue. I also added two strips of a magnet at the back of each one.

I really hope you like my little project and that you give them a go. Or maybe you have different ideas to use these little calendars for? I would love to hear from you!

Have a blessed day,

Masculine Birthday Card with Hexagon Hive Thinlits Die by Stampin’ Up!

Hello everyone. Today I will share with you the masculine card I’ve made for a friend request. He needed something special for his brother’s birthday. What I knew about the recipient is that he loves his little boys, Manchester United and heavy metal 😉 I’ve decided to go for the football club colours: black, yellow and red, and to use Stampin’ Up! Hexagon Hive Thinlits Die.

The base is Basic Black cardstock. The background is made on Whisper White cardstock. How I did it? It’s such a cool and effective technique.

 I took a stamping clear block and simply I stamped the entire Real Red inkpad on the block, then spritz it with a water and stamped it on the cardstock. I repeat it few times till get the right intense shade. I did dry it in between. Then I’ve done the same with Crushed Curry ink pad for yellow. and to finish it I’ve randomly stamped some stamps from Gorgeous Grunge set. I took a piece of Basic Black cardstock and Hexagon Hive Thinlits and run it through the Big Shot. I’ve attached my background to the base with snail and hexagon die cut on the top with Tombow glue. But then I’ve thought it needs some more twist. I took “happy happy”, “happy birthday” and “chevron” mini stamps from Honeycomb Hello (coordinates with Hexagon Hive Thinlits) and stamp them in the little hexagons on the background.

For the first sentiment I’ve taken a piece of Whisper White cardstock (watercoloured in Real Red same technique as the background) and a piece of basic black, cut them into mini banners and layer them together. The sentiment is from Something To Say and punched using Word Window Punch. The second sentiment is totally awesome! It’s one of the stamps from Just Saying set and cut out with coordinating framelits from Word Bubbles. Stamped it in Real Red of course in a piece of Whisper White and attached it with dimensionals. Oh, and a black button for that extra touch.

I really love how this card turned out. All supplies I’ve used are Stampin’ Up! except for the button. I know I’ve used lots of different stamp sets and accessories for one card but I’m just starting so don’t have a wide variety of coordinating stamps, punches, framelits etc. But I’m getting there slowly 🙂

Hope you like this project. Thank you for stopping by and happy crafting,
