Rock the Block Perpetual Calendar

Another example of how I used the Rock the Block set with coordinating stamp set and Elemental paper packet - a perpetual calendar. Below the photo I've included tips on what to put on each block to save you from having to figure it out the hard way like I did.Block 1 - Jan, Feb, Mar, blank side - Top: Apr  Bottom: decorated with stamped image
Block 2 - May, Jun, Jul, blank side - Top: Aug  Bottom: decorated with stamped image
Block 3 - Sep, Oct, Nov, blank side - Top: Dec  Bottom: decorated with stamped image
Block 4 - 0, 1, 2, blank side - Top: 3  Bottom: decorated with stamped image
Block 5 - 0, 1, 2, 4 - Top: 5 Bottom: blank side
Block 6 - 6, 7, 8, blank side - Top: 9  Bottom: decorated with stamped image

To adhere the paper to the blocks, I painted a side of the block with mod podge and laid it down on the paper. I then used my cutting knife to trim away the excess paper and rubbed down the edges of the paper to the block corners using the handle of my knife.

My month's are from the font on the Art Philosophy Cartridge and merged in the Cricut Craftroom

*You want to keep your sides relatively flat - this is the time to skip bumping embellishments. Oh, so hard to do ;)


  1. Very nice! I had been looking for an idea to use on my blocks. This may just be it!

  2. What a great idea. You are so creative. Thank you for sharing this.

  3. Thanks for the secrets to getting everything that you need onto those sides! I'm sure that would have taken quite a bit of time for me to figure out!
