Making Time to Mark Time
Some of my favorite Forever™ products to make and give (and to use myself) are calendars. From the 12x18" and 8x12" perforated wall calendars to the 11x8.5" standard calendars to the 10x4" desk calendars, there is something for everyone. Even those of us who tend to keep all of our appointments online or on our computers or phones can't resist hanging a calendar full of pictures of those we love! In case you haven't heard, calendars are 30% off (use the code HELLO2017 at check out) for a few more days, which gives you a great chance to create and order more - and you can include photos from December and your holiday celebrations! In addition to the sale, it couldn't be much easier to make the calendars if you use one (or more) of the awesome pre-designed calendars or Blueprint calendar templates available in the Forever store.
Forever Artisan® makes it super simple to personalize your calendars, too - you can make and save your own events lists, you can use one of the preset events lists, and you can even add photos to individual calendar cells. You can choose from lots of different calendar styles, using any fonts you want, and you can start your calendar in any month or year you want. To learn more about how to do all of this (and more), check out the Calendar Workshop over at pixels2Pages. It's free for pixels2Pages™ members, or available for $20 for non-members. Best of all - you'll get six Blueprints to use on your calendar (and you'll learn how to use them).
Here are a couple of calendar pages I've been working on for two different people. One is for my sister (and me) - it will be a compilation of photos from our twelve Sassy Sister adventures, which means I needed something that would allow me to use LOTS of photos. The Be Square Calendar by Forever is exactly what I needed! I can change the colors and papers, add some text, and voilá - it's done!
This second calendar is for my son and his family (and I can think of a few others who might enjoy the same one) and it could not be easier. I'm using the free blank 2017 calendar template and simply adding finished pages I've done this past year. Since I save my completed pages to my Forever™ Account, it was a snap to choose twelve of my favorites and pop them right in. Easy peasy!
There are so many options - just choose one and go! Time's a wastin'! Happy New Year!
