Crafting With Crafty Secrets

Hello and Happy December! Christmas is almost upon us and I've been busy, busy working up some fun Crafty Secrets projects for the December Linky Party.
I'll start off with my tutorial on creating a little desk calendar that I made using Crafty Secrets FREE 2015 printable calendar found HERE. There are two styles to choose from. I used the white version and printed it onto my own parchment paper to save on ink.

Let's begin! I used Smokey Shadow cardstock, which I referred to in my tutorial as "Black" for the sake of easy typing. I also printed off some design paper from Crafty Secrets Digital Kitchen Memories.

When folded flat, it will fit right into a regular A-2 envelope. This is a perfect little gift idea for a teacher, hair dresser or for someone's computer desk.

My next projects are just projects, no tutorial.
This is a little frame that I switch out seasonally. For winter, I used one of the images from Christmas Creative Scraps and made this sweet home decor piece.

Is this little winter sweetie cute, or what?
Next up is a sweet little gift tag that I can tie onto a gift bag.

The next is a little treat bag, just waiting to be filled with holiday sweets!

And finally, my last card uses the new Vintage Santa images that Sandy just released.

The sentiment is also from CS.

What a creative smorgasbord Birgit! You have been a busy girl. I love your calendar. What kind of adhesive did you use to hold the calendar pages together with? Do they just pull off? Thanks for joining us this month.
