Calendar Gifts

I made two of these calendars this year for Christmas gifts for some of our out of town family. They are made using the Karen Foster 6x6 Calendar Kit. Most of the paper is from the kit, but some of the cardstock is from my own stash. I tried to keep each page simple but sometimes I got a little carried away. As you all know it is hard for us Scrapbookers to keep things simple. I had to keep reminding myself that it is only a 6x6 page and that there was not much room for embellishments. I also had to keep in mind that I need to mail them too! I did use my Cricut a lot for this calendar. Under each month I made a list of the items that I used for that page. I do apologize for some of the bad photos of the calendar, I was in hurry to make the post office before it closed.

  1. Love your calendar! Merry Christmas and see you in January!

  2. Your calendar turned out awesome. Clean, simple & extremely effective.

    My top 3 picks are: July - love how the photo goes off the page and the watermelon "U".

    November - the paper compliments the photo perfectly and for some reason this layout makes me feel like I am there with Rhys baking.

    January - love the large snowflake and the photo corners on the photo adds the right touch.

    Have a fabulous Christmas!
