Good Morning! I have been chomping at the bit to show you this month's product focus for Taylored Expressions - Downloads!! Today I'm showcasing TE's Birthday Calendar, designed by TE's very own Nancy McKinney. If you are looking for a fun way to get organized for the New Year, this is your chance. I am horrible about remembering birthdays and sending out cards and so I jumped at the chance to make this cute little birthday calendar to display in my craft area. What I love about this download is it is extremely easy to decorate - just stamps and paper! Since I want my calendar to lie flat, I don't want to embellish the pages to the extreme I will embellish my cards.
The birthday calendar download comes in one file, so printing an entire calendar is as easy as pressing the print button on my computer. I chose to print my calendar on Choice Snow White card stock because it is so smooth and sturdy.
The cover of the calendar is where I embellished a bit - Just a touch of patterned paper and a title box; don't forget the cupcake too!
There are several ways you can tie the calendar together - you can use metal rings and decorate them with ribbon, you can use the Bind It All and spiral bind your pages together, or you can do what I did here and use jumbo eyelets on the cover and hole-punch the rest of the pages. Pick fun ribbon to thread through the holes and tie in a knot really finishes the project.
Half of the Baker's Dozen have put together other fabulous projects using other downloads today, so don't forget to stop by and see:
