Anyhow, I have a favorite person I got to for calendar ideas and templates. She is wonderfully generous and has shared her templates with us fans.
This is my version of a Desktop Calendar originally created by: Cami or Cambria Turnbow (one of my favorite crafty ladies) and using CAT's desktop calendar template for 2011. I love how it came out and that it's the size of a regular greeting card 4.25x5.5. I could fold it and mail it to a special friend if I wanted to, but this time it's mine. I need it. LOL.
Hope you like it as much as I do. Each section is a Season Quarter.. so I started with Winter.. Jan-Mar and tried to encompass colors and Designer papers and punched embellies that may represent the season and each months Holiday if any....
New Years-Valentine's Day -St. Patty's Day
Easter-Mother's Day-Father's Day
4th of July-Harvest-Labor Day
Side view and more true to color...
Halloween-Thanksgiving-Christmas-Hannukah or Kwanza
Side view... Can you feel the changes in the air? Love to play with the dies
this shows the middle band holding the card upright.. tucks behind first layer on card.
