This is a nifty little quarterly/seasonal calendar design, which I copied from a commercial one we received in a Christmas card a couple years ago. Basically, it's a half-sheet of cardstock measuring 4 1/4 x 11, scored at 5 1/2 inches and folded in half, supported by a cardstock base inserted in two-inch slits cut into the middle of the bottom of each side.
Month size - Width 1.187, Height 1.312
Year on Page
Border - Box-Thin
No Print Year (I used Snap-Stamps, small formal)
Font - Gloucester MT
Color - I changed the color of the font using RGB codes in the Custom Colors option.
NOTE: If you don't want to create the year, simply choose the Print Year option.
I printed the calendar onto white cardstock and then cut each row of months apart.
Instructions for cardstock insert: Cut a piece of matching cardstock 4 1/4 x 3 inches and then cut a notch out of each corner that measures 1 1/4 x 3/8 inches. The resulting central tabs are slightly shorter than two inches wide, which fit nicely into those slits you created (see photo).
I changed the images for each season, including the background stamps. A great gift feature of this project: it folds flat for mailing!
Just remember, Winter and Spring are on one side, and Summer and Autumn are on the other. :o)

This is a most incredible display of the Thomas Kinkade images! The backgrounds are all so soft and delicate. The whole project is put together with such precision and artistry. I'm very fortunate to be able to say this based on first hand knowledge. Thank you, Linda! I'm a very lucky girl.
