Thank you Jan so much for your kinds words. You made my day! I have been working so hard posting on that crazy blog and getting my Card Classes going and my Stampin' Up! Business going, and no one hardly ever follows the blog by email or leaves me any comments. It has been so discouraging. But, you have just made my day and made all of this hard work so worth it. I'll try to post the directions on the blog within a few weeks, but if you want to email me @firstname.lastname@example.org, I would be more than happy to type them out for you and send it to you. Once again thank you very much for taking the time to leave such a beautiful and encouraging comment. God Bless You!
Thank you so much for visiting my gallery and for your very kind comments! Yes, I did use the Sizzix Bigz XL Scallop envelope die #656095. I looked it up on Sizzix.com but I think they don't have it anymore. I love that die and I use it with card stock or dp.
You can get a glimpse of the envelope here: from the tool shed: Mostly Minty Birthday . I used dp and the white side is out but sometimes I use the design out. That size card also fits in the bill paying envelopes. I open them up and trace onto dp and cut out if I only need a few.
It sounds like you may already have the die. I hope this helps.
Thanks so much for such a sweet comment on my gallery. I so enjoy making cards...just wish I had more time. That super cute pom-pom ribbon is made by Bazzill. Every year they clear out their warehouse and donate product to teachers. This is one of the goodies that made it into my box. You can probably definitely get it online, but I think I've also seen it at Michael's or any other big box store. It's so fun to play with...and so girly! Let me know if you get some. Would love to see how you use it. Enjoy your week!

I will send you the directons for the calendar. I did use tissue paper for the tealights. I punched 1 3/8" circle from the tissue paper, punch a hole in the center for the wick. Lay them out and stamp the image with you basic black ink. Then color them with markers, I don't think it matters what kind.
