Coaster Fridge Magnets

My good friend Stevie sent me a fridge magnet for my birthday... I LOVE it. She used her Cuttlebug and embossed the bottom. It has Cindy Ribbon, and the Spring Showers DS paper. It is gorgeous! I can always use help remembering what day it is! Thanks Stevie! :)

I ordered some calendars the next day (www.vippies.com). I already had some chipboard coasters from my bomb of a friend Mounds... I mean Joy(www.eclecticpaperie.com). I bought A LOT of calendars. SNORT. So.... I cut up one of my Just Delightful Scrappin' kits that I got for free during SAB, and let my hostess club gals go wild and create. You should have seen the amazing ideas they came up with. I wanted to keep each and every one, but they were set on taking theirs home with them... LOL. I had fun yesterday using up some left overs and making some more of these for friends and family. I also got to FINALLY try the famous big clippies that my brilliant friends Pam Hooten and Valerie Stangle made so popular. Thanks for the die cut Heather! :) Man, I had a great birthday! I'm so blessed with wonderful friends.

In case you are wondering, YES... I did use my punches. I used the key tag punch on a sheet of magnets to cut some perfect little shapes for the back. :) See? I'm telling yah.... love my punches. Cut all your paper and strips at 4 inches and you can whip a ton of these out from one Scrappin' Kit.

These chipboard calendars are absolutely adorable! Do you know of any other company that sells these calendars...I'd love to get my hands on about 12 of them. One would be great at this point. Vippies is sold out of the larger sized calendar.
