One of the gifts I make each year for my daughters-in-law are new calendars. This year I was especially excited as I was able to bind the calendars. My oldest son gave me a Cinch Book Binding Tool for my birthday and I love it!
So, back to my project for today. I made three calendars using Graphic 45 patterned papers to decorate the calendar pages. The calendar was printed on Very Vanilla cardstock Stampin' Up!® What you can't see is the easel I put on the back of each so they would stand on their own. I have a Tim Holtz Small Easel Die and it works great for those projects you want to stand alone.
This week Just Us Girls is having a word challenge and that word is "new." What better way to demonstrate the word than a "new" calendar for the "new" year. My girls loved them.
