Gosh, it's been so long since my last post ~ apologies. My husband hasn't been well so I was distracted for a while there ... but he's on the mend now and I've had a chance to do some playing! My friend Heidi told me about a SU demonstrator called Angie Kennedy Juda who has a wonderful blog 'Chic n' Scratch'. Angie had a post showing a calendar class with a great photo so I decided to use her idea and make some of my own. The first challenge was to make a word document using the 2009 months ... sounds easy, but the placement was a nightmare ~ I wanted to make them all the same size so had to manipulate the top and left margins to make trimming easy and accurate. Took a few goes but I made it in the end! If anyone would like the word document, just e:mail me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I'll send you the doc.
Papertrey Ink sell these sturdy CD cases, a pack of 5 for $3 you can find them here. All I did then was measure the dimensions and cut my cardstock accordingly. The calendars were printed on Whisper White and layered with Close to Cocoa and then I used the Scallop Circle, 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" circle punches to make each month's unique image. I think it turned out very well ... thanks Angie for the inspiration!
