  9. Hi Linda,
    When I saw the calendar I had to shared it with my Stampin buddies and they loved it. We will be making it as soon as we can get the calendars. Thank you so much for sharing and maybe Stampin Up will make this a Simply Sent Kit. I think it would sell.

    Hi Mary, thanks for sharing Linda’s project.

  10. Painter410 just emailed and says he’s listing more tonight or tomorrow morning. I guess we’re keeping him busy!

  11. Linda, Love, love, your calender!! Thanks much for taking the time to share!!!

  15. Just ordered mine from eBay. Note: When ordering quantity of 1 – this includes Blank 2014 Stamping Calendar 5 Complete Sets Stampable Blank Craft 3.5″x5″. That’s 5 (five) complete sets for $6.75. Great deal! There are only 2 offers left at this posting.

  16. This is a great project and has inspired me to make my own. It is truly wonderful for you, Mary, to share this project with us. I love the creativity of this project and hope Linda begins a blog to share more of her ideas. Thank you both.

  17. hi margie . . . flip the CD case backwards . . . it creates a little stand that way. m

  18. I absoloutely adore this project and am so thankful to Mary and Linda for sharing it! I had to “google” painter410 stamping calendars in order to find the ebay listing but says she only ships within US, not to Canada 🙁 It wouldn’t let me send an email either. So disappointed! I would’ve bought a few.

  19. she should be selling these! what a great lil gift!

  20. Linda – Thank you so much for sharing your calendar with us. Mary – Thank you for helping Linda to share her talent. Can someone tell me how to keep the CD case open to display the calendar?

    I went on eBay early this morning, after posting my thank you to Linda and Mary. I typed “painter410 stamping calendars” and found the 3 1/2 x 5 size. I ordered them. I just checked now and don’t see them. The only ones that come up now are the spiral 5×7 size. I ordered the 2015….wondering if they are out of them? Anyone else finding these calendars?
