Acrylic Photo Frames using Flower Shop

There are several acrylic photo frames just sitting in a box in my craft room. I had originally thought I would use them to make post-it note holders, but that never occurred. I got a few items from the new 13-14 SU catalog and one of the them was the Flower Shop stamp set. 

This set makes great 3-D flowers using the matching punch. 
In the photo there are two photo frames. 
One is 4"x6" and the other is 3 1/2" x 5". 
I designed them to be a set and sit next to each other. 

I will be moving on to decorate a composition notebook in this style next.

Calendar / Post-It Note Easel

I have been creating...just not so faithfully posting my projects. Today I am getting ready for a little Farm and Art Market in town. I thought it might be nice to take a few things down and see if there is any interest. I am always drawn to utilitarian crafts...creative and useful is the best. I purchased/ downloaded a file from here for the calendar:

I do not care to waste paper either, so the card base measures 4 1/4" x 11" 
((You can get two projects out of one 8 1/2" x 11")) 
Scored at 2 3/4" and 5 1/2"
White layer: 4" x 5 1/4"
DSP layer: 3 3/4" x 5"

to create an easel card.***

Boho Blossom punch for creating layered flowers with pearls.

Calendar can be changed out monthly.
