Today is all about planning for NEXT YEAR and Christmas gifts! I’ve been itching to create my own mini calendars to give as gifts and keep for myself. Get ready, because it’s finally happening! I’ll be using some gorgeous new releases from Unity Stamp Company to decorate my desk calendars.

They fit perfectly in my small wooden easel and I can switch each month out.

Check out my Etsy shop for the latest versions if you’d like to make some too. You just download and print at home on your favorite cardstock. I’m using the A2 {4.25″x 5.5″} smaller format today. If you’d like more room to decorate, grab the 5″ x 7″ size. I also have a few printable sentiment strips available too.

2024 Mini Calendars

I didn’t want to overwhelm myself with trying to do the whole year, so I started with just four months. Up first is September through December since the wonderful new stamps coordinated with these months so well.

I used the smaller A2 mini calendar printable for each month. Printed those off and cut them into quarters. I masked off the calendar and stamped my image right above. While I was watching TV, I colored each image with Copic alcohol markers.

Once all the coloring was done, I picked 2 dies to cut out each month so they had a nice decorative edge.

I glued those to some pattern paper I had in my stash. I picked simple patterns that complemented the colors I used in the image.

Lastly, I added a little sentiment strip or embellishment to each mini calendar. Since I wanted to make so many, I decided to keep the decorations and design simple.
