Handmade Holidays Blog Hop – Day 3

Handmade Holidays button

Welcome to the 3rd Annual Handmade Holidays Blog Hop!! Crafters, designers, and manufacturers have come together to make thoughtful, handmade gifts for the holidays during this 3 day blog hop. We want you to create something from the heart this holiday season while you learn how to use our products in fun, innovative ways. We hope this hop will be a resource to you now and for years to come.

Hop along to each blog in the list. Each day, Nov 1 – Nov 3, 2013, we’ll post a new list of blogs. Comment on each blog, share your favorite posts over social media, and then use the Rafflecopter widget at the bottom of each post to enter to win the Grand Prize, a gift basket filled with crafty swag from the companies on the hop! Enter on the widget once per day!! We’re ready to inspire, share, and create – are you ready to hop?

Our project today comes from Design Team Member Suzanne Czosek. Each catalog time Suzanne creates some amazing thing that becomes the most talked about sample of the book. This July was no exception. A charming desk calendar is always a good gift, but one made from the heart, by hand, is the best kind. Suzanne’s calendar has already sparked a few classes among our store owners, and we sure hope folks will enjoy receiving them this year. We’ll be featuring this project on our blog all week to kick of our Handmade Gifts Challenge this month.

You can see each page of Suzanne’s creation, in all its glory, on the Project Section of the Stampendous Website. There are detailed supply lists and instructions to make your own. And you might want to hurry, many of the stamps she used are slated for retirement when the January Catalog is released.

  1. What a marvelous calendar! I love December the most but every month is simply beautiful! Anyone would love to receive this as a gift and what a great item to keep on hand for last minute gift giving! Thanks for the inspiration!


  2. What a gorgeous homemade calender. It would definitely make a special gift for any friend. This Blog Hop has been Fabulous and full of beautiful gift ideas.Thank your for sharing.


  3. What an absolutely beautiful calendar. I love every page of it.
    Suzanne’s work is so beautiful. Thank you so much for sharing with us.
    It’s been such a great blog hop.


  4. Ok – so, I click over to the Project Section and page down to where it says Printable Instructions in PDF but all that comes up is the calendar pages – no instructions. Am I doing something wrong? It’s a great idea!


  5. That’s a lovely project that anyone would be pleased to receive. I gave up on the blog hop, lol! Couldn’t figure out that Rafflecopter thing at all! It looked like the only way to enter was with a Facebook id, couldn’t see how to enter it otherwise. If there’s a way to enter without using social media could you let us know please? Too late for this time round, but it would be helpful if you do another hop.



  6. I also gave up on the hop. I do not have a Facebook ID . I don’t think I should have one just to be able to enter a giveaway, but I love the projects just the same.
