Okay, I spent most of the day, yesterday, reorganizing my craft area-trying to make room for the YUDU.
I knew if I put it away– I would not use it as much as if it were sitting out, staring at me 🙂
I was also working on some other fun projects, I can’t tell you about quite yet….(I know, I am horrible at keeping secrets )
With Alexis home from school this week, she was itching to get into the scrapbooking room and PLAY– so after we organized her drawer–and I gave her a new binder for her stamps and stickers–she got to help me with a couple of calendars.
Alexis, had actually made me a Calendar at school- as a Christmas present to me. This is a BIG deal, because it is my VERY first school gift from my baby! Here’s a quick picture of the calendar she made for me-she was so happy and excited to have me unwrap it!
Each month is copied, and the part that flips up, is hand drawn and colored with an appropriate seasonal image. 🙂 I cannot tell you how much I LOVE this calendar!! It reads: ” This is a special calendar, made for you from me, I hope it helps you plan your days, while you think of me.”
But today, we used some simple pre-printed calendar pages, and added a few embellishments, instead of drawing pictures 😀
For the one below, I used the YourStory to bind it, and then used my ATG to adhere a ribbon closure. Since, it will be used all year, I wanted to be sure the sentiment to be something that would fit all year long.
If you want to see the YOURSTORY in action, be sure to check out my video on it HERE
The rest of the months are similar, but embellished according to the month!
This was a fun, quick project–that is sure to be a nice little gift for almost anyone in your life! Plus–the best part? Make it from the kids–then they can embellish to their hearts desire, and when aunts/uncles and grandparents flip thru the year, they will think of them!
