2012 Calendars

Long time no scrap!
I wish I was saying that just to be cute.... but truly, it has been a LONG time since I've scrapped. I do miss it, and I'm about 2 years behind. But I figure it's more important to MAKE the memories than to hole myself away scrapping the memories. I assure you the photos have been taken and I'll catch up one day....
In the meantime, I've had a few people ask about the calendars. I always debate whether or not I'll do them. Truth be told though, they're also what I give for Christmas gifts, so I NEED to make them for my own list to be completed!
So.... here they are!
Here's a little example of what they look like with my family tucked into January. We've since moved completely out of snow country -- if it snows where we've moved, they may just kick us out of town!!!

I've given you a couple different options from which to choose. The first is a 12x12 option (at 300dpi). Obviously these can easily be shrunk down to 8x8 or maybe even smaller to make CD case calendars if you'd like.
To get your 12x12 download, please CLICK HERE.


The second option is an 8.5x11 option. This is the option I use, and I typically have had them printed at ArtsCow.com -- they're reasonable, the printing is good, and while the transit is a LITTLE LONG, I'll take the cost savings. If memory serves, shipping was exorbitant, so look for a free shipping code. The 8.5x11 option has a little bit more detail. I've added the "memo boxes" with interchangable titles -- memory verse, to do, special days, birthdays, memo, etc. Use one I've provided, or make up your own.

I've also included a Bible Verse for each month, which is standard on my calendars. It's removable should you choose. This year, I've also included quotes by various Christian authors, and these are on the "date block" pages.

I hope you enjoy! As we pass Halloween and enter into the holiday season, may God's richest blessings go with you!

Such a generous gift! I tried to download the 12x12 zip but received an error message. Wondering if the link has a problem. Thanks.

It's SO GOOD to see you again! I'm glad all is well with you and thank you so much for this wonderful and most generous gift!

God bless you and yours too!

BTW - Ruth is right and the link to the 12 x 12 doesn't work, but it's just because the "h" at the beginning was left off. You can fix it or others can just right click the link, choose "copy link", paste it in the browser and type an "h" at the beginning. No biggie.

Blessings!

Oh, wow!! You have made my day!! I checked recently - was really hoping you would make and share templates again - and these are fantastic!

I used your templates last year to create our family calendars (we do a bunch, have them printed at Costco), and I've been enjoying the photo collages and verses all year.

Thank you so much for sharing these with us!!

Now that I've looked at them, I need to say - thank you so much for including quotes from so many of my favorite authors!! : )

This is the best calendar layout, so amazing. I love making calendars with your layouts. I there a way to use the verse as a clipping mask? I cannot change the background or know how to with the scripture verse.

These are absolutely brilliant, thank you :)

It's been a long while but it is so great to hear from you again. I truly thank you for the spiritual-based verses that you include within your designs. I still have your calendars from before I entered the hospital and still enjoy the verses and color schemes from 2008. I hope that you and the family are doing well because you are always in my prayers. Hummie mentioned you in her newsletter, and I just had to visit.
