Join us as a fan on Facebook for an early peek at the stamp sets, as well as a SPECIAL Facebook GIVEAWAY, on Wednesday night beginning at approximately 6 pm PST.

Today the Baker's Dozen is showing the new Calendar products that will be in available in the TE store in combination with sneak peeks at the 12 new petite stamp sets!! Petite-a-Palooza is the perfect time to take the plunge and try some TE stamps if you haven't yet. We have something for everyone. And if you're already a TE fan, you'll love all the fun choices this month! Petite sets are 3" x 5" and sell for $7.95.

I am using Moka Nora, designed by Nancy McKinney in combination with the CD calendar case plus pre-printed calendar insert set.

There are more than enough adorable images in the Moka collection to create all sorts of calendar projects. We're adding two more this month.

Moka Kristie - set of 5 for $7.95 - a sweet skater sparkling on ice!
Moka Nora - set of 7 for $7.95 - a Winter beauty for Christmas and beyond.

I colored Nora with Copics, added white fun flock to the trim and used the Viva Paper Pen in Opal for her buttons. My papers are from Echo Park Holly Jolly Christmas.

To my calendar I added holly leaves, and sentiment, and the little envelope that are included in the Moka Nora stamp set.

I love the idea behind the CD Desktop Calendar Set! They are similar to the CD style calendars you've seen in the past, but these cases allow more room for both the calendar and your stamped artwork. Purchase includes one case and one set of 12 pre-printed calendar pages for $5.95.  Case size is 4.37" x 7.52" x 0.32" and the insert size is 4.21" x 7.24"The calendar comes with the CD case/calendar holder and the 12 pre-printed calendar cards!! I can wait to create a new page each month to set on my desk!!

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to stop by all the designers blogs today for lots more CALENDAR inspiration.
