"I'm late. I'm late – for a very important date." That seems to be the story of my artful crafty life.
Each year – well, two years running now – I try something a bit different for the desk calendars I make for myself and a few special friends.
1. I tried to get the calendars done before the New Year began. Oh well, it took me until the 12th of January this time, about the same as last year – sigh.
2. I printed the calendars from my new laser printer. Yay! The print quality is beautiful and the colors won't bleed. No worries if one happens to drip something or touch the page with wet fingers.
3. I used a scrapbook layout on the top half of each page. I love doing digital scrapbook layouts, though I'm very slow at it. (That's my excuse for being late again this year; and I'm stickin' to it!)
The digital products, including the perpetual calendar templates, are from Scrap Girls.
I'll be sharing the monthly pages throughout the year. Heeere's January …
Tomorrow I'll describe parts of the calendar making process and the fun craft tools I used in The Artful Crafter New Personalized Keepsake Calendar in the Making.
