#SU! Simple Easel Fold Calendar

Each year I like to create and send a hand-stamped calendar to each of those on my Little Inkers team (those who've signed-up under me within Stampin' Up!). This year, I used a fun-fold I found from Tricia Butts, a fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrator. You can see her blog post here

Here is what those calendars looked like:

With everything going on around the Christmas holiday (family visiting and other activities), I haven't spend much time in my stamping space. Maybe you can relate?

However, with the New Year approaching quickly I'm hoping to be back in a regular routine of creating. 

I recorded a video tutorial of a variation on this calendar, and I hope you'll check it out. Perhaps one of these will spark your own creativity.

Here's the video link:

Here are the project measurements:

Granny Apple Green cardstock: 5-1/2" x 8-1/2", scored at 4-1/4"
Basic White cardstock: 2-1/2" x 3-1/4"; 2" x 3"; scraps for cloud die
Pool Party cardstock: (if using the pond water) scrap measuring about 2" x 3"
Mango Melody cardstock: (if using the sunset) scrap about 2-3/4" square
Old Olive cardstock: (for the grass) scrap about 1" x 2"

Here is the calendar when it's closed:
