Calendar Project

ETA: Sorry about that...here you go!

Since this year is almost over, I thought I'd go out with a bang and show you one more project. Fittingly, it is my kitchen calendar for 2009.

Simply get an acrylic panoramic frame (I got mine at Michael's), and use a hand drill to create holes that go all the way through the frame. Tip: If you leave the packaging inside the frame and then create the holes, you can simply slip that sheet of paper out and use it as your template for creating the holes in all your pages...


Using a swirl stamp at the bottom left and top right of every page and a handful of punches, I set out to start my project. I have a ton of red throughout my home, so I went with colors that complimented my kitchen. I also used Elle's Calendar tags for last year...and she has a ton that can be purchased here...(or in the WIP Kit found here.) I used 7Gypsies black 1" binder rings, but you should use what you have and call it yours...


The lovely Janelle was sweet enough to create sketches for you all...






















And you want to know the best part? I'm going to dismember this thing today, trim off the top with the holes, and mount them all onto scrapbook pages. Three months fit on a page perfectly--and all I have to do is add a favorite photo of that month!! I get a jump start on 2010 with FOUR layouts complete!!


If you need a free printable calendar, I found this one online. Feel free to share your links to others you may find as well!!


Happy New Year to you!!
