2010 Calendar

Every year, I create a calendar album for my mom and my mother-in-law that showcases pictures of my children. I'm five days late this year because of the hectic holidays but better late than never, I guess. :D

I got to use my American Crafts 6th Avenue Papers! I love this line and bought it years ago but haven't finished all the papers. I though this was a great way to lessen my paper stash and still be creative. :D I also got to use my Sizzlit Swirl die a lot. Something I really like. Noticed how I altered some positions of the die cut making each page different.

Thanks for looking!

Perfect calendar Mia - for some reason the June photo isn't loading for me...If I ever make another calendar I definitely like your method (I did one last year & it was 12" square with a separate page for the picture then a separate page for the date sheet) & it took me forever! I really like that swirl die-cut too - never seen it before...oh btw where did you get the base calendar? Which manufacturer? Thanks!

Thanks Em! Need to follow up the Color Me Miki kits at the post office! A lot of packages got undelivered because of the long holidays. :( Can't wait to start working on the kits!

Thank you too, Helen! I used an airline calendar for my base and stuck the PP's on it. I printed the calendars separately. That sizzlit swirl die is one of my favorites! But I needed a roller machine to use it (Wouldn't work on my sizzix machine even with a converter). Good thing my aunt from the US passed on her Sidekick to me. Yehey!

Thanks for looking!
