Calender with Ann Butler Designs and Deflecto Frame

Hello Crafty Friends! Today I want to welcome you to a fun blog hop using Ann Butler Design products and Deflecto frame. For the hop I made this fun Calendar.

Products Used:
Ann Butler Crafter’s Ink by Clearsnap: Ocean Breeze and Berry
Ann Butler 2″Faux Quilt Stamps by Unity Stamps 
Ann Butler's 1" EZ De's by Kellycraft
Craft Frame 8 X 10 by Deflecto
Cardstock, metal rings, 3 X4 calendar sheets for 2015, transparency, black sharpie

1. Stamp the cardstock using Ann Butler's crafter's ink and stamps to create beautiful background and attach the printed calendar sheets.
2. Cut your cardstock to insert into the frame
3. Stamp your design on the cardstock. This was really easy using Ann Butler Design's faux quilt stamps. These stamps just have endless possibilities......Loveeeeeee them.
4. Now I cut a sheet of transparency to fit into the frame and handwrote a quote. I love to read quotes and so I thought this would be the best way to add an inspirational quote everyday or month to inspire me when I look at the calendar.
5. Drilled two holes for the metal rings so I can hang the calendar sheets.

I hope you enjoyed this project and please don't forget to leave me a comment. Now are you ready to be blown away ..............stop by my fellow crafter's blog to be amazed with their creativity.

Thank you.


  1. This is a very clever and useful piece that everybody needs! I am wondering if any heat had to be applied when drilling the holes? Did a regular drill and bit do the job? Love the innovation!

    1. Thanks Marilyn. I just used regular drill and bit to make the holes only thing you have to hold it firmly so it does not crack.

  2. Brilliant idea Vishu! and I love your colors!
