fixed the link on yesterday's post.
Today, I want to tell you about my new product - it's 2011 Calendar Templates! These are super easy to use and a wonderful way to create personalized gifts for your family and friends! I thought I'd share a few of my tips/tricks for creating calendars with you to get you started!
Trick 1: Use layouts you've already created! Find a layout you love and resize it to 11x8.5 (or whatever size your calendar is). Then, go back to the kit you used to scrap your layout and grab a few coordinating papers and elements to create the calendar grid portion. Don't forget to add the month name using your favorite font or alpha!
Trick 2: My calendars are also scrapbooks of the previous year. My January 2011 calendar page will feature photos from January 2010 (and so on throughout the year). This is a fun way to make sure that the photos match the season as well as an easy way to remember the last year of your lives!
Trick 3: If you are making calendars for multiple people, it's easy to personalize them by changing out just a few months worth of pictures! If you are giving grandparents a calendar featuring their grandkids - simply switch out the months that have pictures of grandma and grandpa with the kids, leave the months where the pictures are of just the kids the same for each calendar!
Alright, here's my 2011 calendar templates - and if you use coupon code NS_Calendar10 you can save 10% off the templates at any of my stores through the end of the month!
