We have many options for homemade and personal calendars. Many printshops offer a variety of photo designs and sizes. I enjoy making them and doing specific colors, themes or using different techniques.
You could random stamp on your background, cut photo mats in different colors to pop the pictures, add stickers & embelishments, weave or tie hemp or ribbons in the corners, or distress and use some techniques. You could also add chipboard initials or names.
During the holidays we always get photos of our own family, and from friends.
These georgeous boys belong to an extra special friend I met in Gulf Shores, Ala.
You can use a wooden block if you aren't into cardstock. I love the cardstock because it's collapsable if you want to store it after. You can also use removable tape to change photos by months.
Each side has a photo area in a rotating spot, obviously there are 4 sides to this calendar.
The wallet size photos work super on this size but you could enlarge your base if you like.
I will be posting 4 other totally different calendar bases in the next 3 days so be sure to come back and check them out! You can also use the Close to My Heart "Moments in Time" January Stamp of the month if you are making different colored months .
