2011 A Muse Calendar Project

Every year, A Muse offers digital calendars in various sizes for download. Proceeds benefit a worthy cause. This year, A Muse has chosen Charley's Fund. Please visit this blog post to see photos and learn more about this darling little girl. This week, the A Muse Creative Team is showing lots of inspiration to get you started on your very own calendar project!
I like making the 4" calendar - it comes complete with cutting guidelines (whoo hoo! anything to make life easier!!) and is just the size to feature some of the tiny images that A Muse is famous for!
The front and back covers are made from chipboard and the calendar is bound at the top - that makes it sturdy enough to stand on its own on your desk, countertop or table.
I like to match A Muse gingham paper to the color of the month. Seattle Girl is the perfect stamp for April - "April showers bring May flowers - - -"
Punching the bottom edge of the gingham paper adds a fun element. With the variety of edge punches available, you can punch each and every page of your calendar with a different decorative edge!
If you'd like to skip all the hard work and learn more about using the Bind-It-All, sign up for my Calendar Workshop that will be taught at the Doodlebug on Saturday, October 23rd. Info is in the sidebar on the left!
Please note: The A Muse Calendars are a download product only (nothing will be shipped to you.) There are five different versions available this year. For a small donation, you are able to download the calendar file and print as many copies as you like for personal use or to create handcrafted items for resale. Calendars make a wonderful gift for family, friends and co-workers.
