2021 Desk Calendars with Hydrangea Hill

Hi everyone,

Welcome to my blog. Thanks so much for popping in to see me. Today I am showing you some little desk calendars I made earlier this month. This post is a bit later in the month than I had originally planned but not too late, I hope, if you want to make one yourself. 

I have made calendars similar to these for several years now. I myself find it very helpful to have one sitting on a shelf in my craft room for easy reference - this year I have had one made for me by one of my lovely team. This year I have made loads of these little calendars - some for my lovely customers who shopped with me in December and some for some friends and fellow Stampin' Up! demos - including the lovely ladies in our Project Share group. However, sadly, I know that at least two never arrived (Royal Mail, I hear, are still in a bit of a muddle after the Christmas rush and with many staff off sick with Covid) so today I need to make a couple more and get them posted off.

I made several different versions of these calendars, using various different colour combinations of cardstock which all coordinated with the patterned papers I used - Purple Posy, Highland Heather, Gorgeous Grape, Misty Moonlight and Seaside Spray. The DSP (patterned paper) is from a pack called Hydrangea Hill - such pretty colours. Of course, in my haste to get them sent off promptly, I forgot to take photos of all the different variations. Just have this one left to show you.

I used the numerals from Family Party to stamp the 2021 on this calendar but on some others I also cut the numbers out with the Playful Alphabet dies.

Would you like to see how I made my calendar? You can watch my video tutorial by CLICKING HERE or on the image below. 

If you need them, here are the measurements.


Base - 29.7cm (full length of A4) x 9cm

Score at 11.75cm, 23.5cm, 26cm, 28cm

Card matt - 8cm x 10.5cm

DSP - 7cm x 4.5cm

Base - 11 3/4" (full length of A4)  x 3 5/8"

Score at 4 5/8", 9 1/4", 10 1/4", 11 1/4"

Card matt - 4 1/8" x 3 1/8"

DSP - 2 3/4" x 1 3/4" 

By the way, I always get asked, so I will say it here - I purchased the calendar tabs on Ebay. Just search "2021 calendar tabs" - they can be bought in all sorts of quantities. Mine measure 7.2cm x 4.7cm.

Bye for now, back soon,
