Hello Kitty calendars

Hi!  Anybody else scrambling to get Xmas gifts done?  Geez, I feel so rushed this year.  I think I procrastinated too much with blog hopping and Lego and not to mention some late nights fighting with my youngest.  This is the last week of school before Xmas break!  Where did the time go?? 

Anyway, I came across some cute Hello Kitty calendars on Jenny's (Sister Stamps) blog HERE.  I love that they were simple to put together cause I wanted to give some calendars out to the teachers but didn't want to make it too complicated since I was short on time.  And I had Sunghee's 2012 calendar template too which is pretty easy to use and so economical. 

Yup, I pretty much stuck with the same design except my calendars are a bit taller.  I used PTI's coaster board and wrapped it with some washi paper.  I haven't used my Hello Kitty sizzlits in a while so at least I got some use of it.  Then just added a small magnetic strip on the back.  These are all for my kids' Nihongo teachers.  Yes, they have 5 teachers for Nihongo. 

I also made 4 more cards using Sister Stamps Shimo-san.  The one I made earlier is HERE

A little close up.  The circle sentiments are all different and from Wild Rose Studio.  I added a mini Bath and Body Works hand gel too into a goody bag and called it a day.  I wanted to make a little memo pad too but there's just not enough time.

Thanks for reading!
