In 2007 for the following year, I developed another version of Ztampf! CraftyCalendar Kit: the Mini-Vertical! As its name suggests, the orientation is vertical and the size is smaller than the original version, at roughly by half. This size is more compact and more economical to make. Our close friend was going to move out of Hong Kong to Shanghai in January 2008 so I made them a Ztampf! MINI CraftyCalendar as part of the farewell gift. I made us of the many photos I took during the time we spent together all those years, it was bitter-sweet. I also made each of my step-daughters a Ztampf! MINI CraftyCalendar – customised for each of them.
Since then, my parents, my husband and my two step-daughters are expecting their Ztampf! CraftyCalendar by the end of the year!
Here is how the then new Ztampf! MINI CraftyCalendar 2008 appeared in the shops:
And the original version is now referred to as the Half-Legal Size, filled with more versatile elements than its predecessor:
That year I also released the Tent-Fold Card Calendar, that you can use as Postcards as well:
By now many customers have told me how it has became a tradition for them too, to gift Ztampf! CraftyCalendars to their loved ones! I know several customers who made approx. 8-12 Ztampf! CraftyCalendars each year! That is a lot! Like what happened to me, they too, started to get requests/reminders from their loved ones about the Ztampf! CraftyCalendars :).
What was new for the 2009 Calendars? It is the CD Calendar Plus. Why the Plus? Because there is a very simple yet effective template to create a nice folder to keep the calendar pages when not in use!
And yes, the pre-made backgrounds and the Ensembles with Date-Markers are all included the set!
A new Tent-Fold Card Calendar Set was also released for 2009:
The original Half-Legal and MINI Ztampf! CraftyCalendars have became the main-stay and signature calendar products from Ztampf!:
And so the tradition continues on: more and more people are expecting their very own specially personalized copy of Ztampf! CraftyCalendar made with love by someone they know well every year!
The Tiny Ensembles included in each CraftyCalendar Kit have proved to be very versatile and popular. By requests I have bundled them together at a great saving price:
Ztampf! CraftyCalendar 2010:
Yes, this year I am so late in releasing the calendars… I know some of you expected the CD Calendar Plus too… I wonder if it’s too late to release one now so close to Christmas already? YOU tell me, OK!
