Here’s the first pics in the series of posts about the calendars I made for my kids (and I use the word “kids” lightly…they’re grown!) Basically, I made 12 scrapbook pages, one for each month, and then 12 “month” pages, complete with cutouts from the Designer’s Calendar cartridge, for birthdays and holidays. I used an ATG gun and LOTS of ATG tape to hold the pages together. I taped the January “month” page to the February scrapbook page, and so on, for each month. Then I used a Cinch version 2 to bind everything together. Above, is a pic of the whole calendar hanging in my daughter’s office. Below, are a few of the scrap pages I made for both the calendars.
Here’s the January scrap page I made for son and DIL. You’ll notice some of the pages for the same months differ since son and daughter-in-law have more classic tastes (and loves birds, argyle, and paisley!) and daughter likes bright colors and lots of bling and glitter. The cuts here were from Winter Frolic, Winter Lace, and Elegant Edges.
February’s pages weren’t anything spectacular…I was starting to run short on time!
This is Son and DIL’s page. I used the Miss Morgan line of paper from Quick Quotes, along with some cardstock from my stash. DIL loves birds, so I tried to incorporate as many as possible! I actually took this pic before the page was finished…later, I added some brads to keep the mats in place and a grommet and ribbon to pull out the journaling tag that’s in the back of the pic mats.
Daughter loves pinks and purples, along with hearts and mushy stuff (haha!) so this page was for her. I used cuts from the Sweethearts cartridge
Okay, enough for now…I don’t want to burn you guys out right away! More tomorrow!
PS…I’m entering my project in Jovan’s
