Basic Grey 2009 Calendar Kit

Hi! Sorry I did not post yesterday. The day got away from me....
I want to show you a GREAT gift idea for the holidays. It will look like you spent days on this when in fact, it will only take a little over an hour! I just ordered these Basic Grey Calendars for the store and I played with one because I wanted to create one as a Christmas gift for my mom. The page size is 8x8 but Scrapbook Bakery also carries the Heidi Swapp 12x12 calendars and you can find them HERE and HERE.

Here is a pic for the month of May... (This is the "before" pic which means that this is what is already printed on the calendar when you get it out of the box)
Then, after just copying what you see on the COLOR EXAMPLES included with the calendar, it turns out like this...
It includes lots of chipboard (that already has adhesive on the back), stickers, rub-ons and die-cuts which made it so fun and super easy! I also altered mine a bit from the examples. If you do not like the example, it's fine b/c there are PLENTY of products included to make it your own style but I just went for fast and easy. :)

Here are a few more pics..... It even has a place to take notes of special dates and a 2010 calendar. You can find these calendars HERE and I just found out from Basic Grey that this was a promotion item and they will no longer be selling them so you might want to grab one.

Okay, Can you tell I love the calendar? lol Just love to enable with good, smart products!

Be back soon. Thanks for stopping by! :)
