Calendar Project for my MIL--first five months
This is the first five months of the calendar that I made for my mother-in-law for Christmas. I can't figure out how to get more pictures in here, so I will do the rest of the pages in a separate post. If you want to see any of the pages in a larger view, just click on the picture that you want to see.
Sandy had requested a picture for her desk at work of the girls and I went just a few steps further and made this whole calendar. :) Yes, I realize that I didn't show the month of August, but that's because I took the picture of the cover page with one of the layouts instead of flipping to a month first. Oh well. The calendar is made by Stampin' Up! and the pages are all perforated so that at the end of the year you can rip out the scrapbook pages as well as the monthly calendars and put them all in a 6 x 6 scrapbook.
I decided to use a common theme throughout the calendar--Kraft cardstock, a black mat on each photo, and the Dymo labelmaker for the titles of the pages. These aren't the best photos, but I mainly just wanted to capture the essence of the scrapbook pages so that I can recreate some of the pages later. I like some of the pages more than others, obviously. The ones of Ava (the baby) alone didn't turn out as well because of the colors...the light pastel pictures aren't showcased very well with a black mat. The only one that I like of her alone is the one where she is sitting on the brightly-colored quilt.
Anyway, I have babbled on enough. Most of the supplies used are by Stampin' Up! If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. Thanks for looking!
