Have you got your 2017 printable Calendar(s) yet? There are so many creative ways to use our printable calendars and the proceeds are going to a great cause - Girl Up. Calendars are FUN to make and wonderful to receive. I know that I love and cherish the ones that I've made over the years.
Today I have some wonderful ideas to share with you from former Creative Consultant, Chris Franco. Chris is a wonderful designer and was a regular winner in our monthly Consultant Creative Challenges. I was thrilled that she was eager to lend her creativity for our 2017 Calendars for Charity program.
MINI CALENDAR - BUSINESS CARD SIZE
The Mini Calendar is so versatile! The finished size is a 1 7/8" square so it will fit easily on many projects. For this fun project, Chris added the Mini calendar to a business card sized (2" x 3.5") piece of cardstock.
Simply slip this calendar into a business card plastic holder and keep it in your purse or display it on your desk. Chris purchased her case here.
There really are limitless creative possibilities when making your calendars, however, I find it best to limit my supplies. This gives a more uniform look to your finished calendar and allows for easy mass production. I love how Christina used colored cardstock to match the color for each month and simply added white embossing. Easy peasy!
January to June
July to August
The Mini Calendar comes with all sort of fun extra bits. These are fun to die cut and add to your Calendar... like THE BEST IS YET TO COME
A2 Flip Calendar
Chris recently joined the CTMH team of Consultants and was excited to purchase one of their flip stands. What a wonderful way to display your A2-sized Calendar and/or Perpetual Calendar! If you'd like to get one of these stands, I'm sure Chris would be happy to take your order!
Both the 4" square Calendar and the A2 size Calendar come with a Perpetual Calendar. The Perpetual Calendar is a great way to keep track of birthdays, anniversaries and other special annual events.
I like how Chris has subtly stamped an image on each month that still allows you to effectively see the special dates.
A HUGE thanks to Chris for sharing her Calendar ideas with us. I have more inspiring Calendar ideas to share from Pat and Melissa so be sure to stop by in the next couple of days.
