Hey, crafty friends! Today, we have one more day of calendar inspiration to share with you using the new Handcrafted Calendar Kit. I have a video from Joy Baldwin to share along with several more projects from the TE Creative Team.
Before we get started, here’s one last overview of the Handcrafted Calendar Kit:

Joy Baldwin dove into her crafty stash and combined a variety of products with the Handcrafted Calendar Kit to create several pages for her 2021 calendar. Watch the video below to see how she created each of her pages:
In the video, Joy creates calendar pages for September, October, November, and December. She mixes and matches the items from the Handcrafted Calendar Kit with different stamp sets, dies, and stencils on each of the pages. Instead of creating directly on the 5×8 2021 Dated Grid Calendar pages, Joy did her designs on a separate piece of cardstock and then adhered it onto each page.
For September, Joy used the stencil with the leaves to create a background and added fun fall images using the Pick of the Patch Background Cling & Clear stamp set and Pizza My Heart Stamp & Die Combo set.
For October, Joy used the Pennant Parade Cling & Clear Combo stamp set with the Pennant Parade – Halloween stamp set to create the background on her page along with the ghost from the Spooktacular stamp set.
For December, Joy stenciled a background with the snowflake stencil from the kit and added Christmas themed tickets. The tickets are cut using the Tag Stacklets 2 die collection and embossed with sentiments in the From the North Pole stamp set.
Joy really had so many great ideas to share for incorporating stamps, dies, and stencils that you might already own into your calendar creations!
Check out the list below for the supplies that Joy used on her calendar project:
Here is more inspiration from the TE Creative Team using the Handcrafted Calendar Kit:
Annette Allen also dove into her crafty supplies to create her 2021 calendar using the kit. She stenciled the backgrounds on each page using the stencils from the kit, even adding a cute patterned border on the bottom! I love the different elements she used to complete each page and I know it had to be so much fun looking through her sets to find things for each month!
I created this next set of calendar pages (Heather Nichols). I kept things fairly simple, but stepped things up by adding a vellum layer die cut with the smallest Mini Slim Stitched Stacklets die under the month labels and adding sparkle to select stenciled images with the Moon Dust Stickles Glitter Gel. You might have noticed I was still able to sneak my signature Toffee cardstock in on the month labels!
Latisha Yoast got create with her stencils for her calendar pages. For some of her pages, she layered the stencils to create bigger blocks of pattern and layered designs. She also added in words from the Farmhouse Sentiments stamp set on her October and December pages.
