Michelle Giraud has created an 8 x 8 calendar that is pure inspration. She was so happy with this calendar turning to a couple of her favorite things to use these days; Instagram prints and SRM Kraft bags!
It's calendar time and what a great gift this calendar would make. Just think of all the people that would love this calendar to enjoy every day of the year! Perfect gift for friends, family, teachers, co-workers and the list goes on! I love the use of Instagram prints on this calendar.
The calendar pages measure 8 x 8. Michelle made them out of a nice heavy cardstock and a decorated paper clamp which provides enough pressure so the calendar will stand up on its own by fanning out the bottom of the pages, or can be hung on a wall.
Each calendar page has a 4 x 6 SRM Kraft bag attached for holding photos, envelopes/bills, appointment cards, or anything else that you would want to save as a reminder.
Each page also has a SRM Standard Mini Calendar and a 4 page notepad for jotting down notes & reminders. The notepad was simply cut from loose leaf paper than lightly glued together at the top and decorated with a scalloped strip of paper.
This whole project was made using coordinating designer paper from 12 x 12 paper pad. Michelle likes how all the colors work together and the variety of photo prints make it interesting. To coordinate with the SRM Kraft bags she used Kraft paper for the base of the mini calendars, SRM's Large Month stickers and a matte for the photo.
Here are all the pages. They all use the same format. Just different papers, photos and stickers. Click on photos to enlarge.
Once Michelle figured up her layout she cut all her layers so everything was ready to go and she could mix and match the patterns as she put them together. Here's a list of all supplies you'll need:
12 pcs 8" x 8" heavy weight cardstock
12 pcs 7.5" x 7.5" coordinating designer paper
12 pcs 4" x 6" SRM Kraft bags
12 pcs 5 3/4" x 4" designer paper (glue on bag front)
12 photos trimmed to 3.5" x 3.5"
12 pcs Kraft cardstock 3.75" x 3.75" (photo base layer)
1.25" strips of Kraft cardstock for large month stickers
12 pcs 2.25" x 2.25" Kraft cardstock for mini calendars
12 sheets loose leaf paper cut into 4" x 2.75" sheets
Once all the supplies are cut the assembly is really easy. Thanks Michelle for this great gift idea. You have inspired us!
