This is a display calendar I made using La Creme paper. This can be used again next year by just putting a new copy of the calendar. My friend Brenda was making these and I just had to try one myself.
****added 1/14 - Just wanted to give a few more details about this - I used the "My Creations Display Album" from Close to My Heart. It's a sprial bound chipboard album (with a white covering) that has 12 - 6x6 page protectors in it. The back chipboard cover opens out so it can stand on its on to display. I just did a 6x6 page for each month, decorated it, and put the calendar month on each page. The calendar was just printed from a Word document my friend Brenda did (Hi Brenda!) that I printed out on SU whisper white cardstock, cut it, and matted it like it was a photo. Then you just put each page inside its own page protector.
Having a "theme" for the whole album so that it all goes together (kind of like a OSW) was really fun and seemed a little easier than trying to do a separate theme for each month based on the season or holiday. Hope I'm making sense and this helps! Kathy

Hi. I sent you a private message about how BEAUTIFUL this is! I thank you for your inspiration and idea to do these beautiful calendars! I, too, had to call to find a CTMH demonstrator (as I am a retired Stampin Up demo myself). Thanks again!

Thank you so much for your kind words! I LOVE feedback, especially when it's good!
I added some more details in the "photo details" area above to answer some questions people had. Hope this makes things a little clearer, but if you have any more questions, let me know! Have fun! Kathy

Great job love your calendar. I've got one of these that I haven't even done yet myself to show my CTMH customers. Now I'll have to get busy and finish mine. I like that the whole calendar is coordinated and not focused on monthly theme. Thanks for sharing.
