Get an early start on your 2012 Calendars

I am always running out of time doing my scrapbooking calendars each year. This year I decided to start them early so I don't have any excuses! I have actually been wanting to do these since Background Blenders came out a few years ago, so I finally tackled them. I really hope you find them easy and fun to use.
ScrapSimple Calendar Templates: Blenders 2012
ScrapSimple Calendar Templates: Blenders is a set of 2012 templates that allow you to blend your favorite photos into the backgrounds. The set is a large format of 11x17. You can have these printed in full format or printed in (2) 8.5 X 11 Sheets.

These make a wonderful gift for your family and friends.
ScrapSimple Calendar Templates: Blenders includes all 12 months in PSD and drag and drop PNG format. Holidays are added separately so you can remove the ones your family doesn't observe, a blank holiday square in each template for adding your own special events, journaling/quotation spots & pre-made month titles that you can use or remove to add your own favorite fonts and alphas. You can customize the complete calendar by removing some items and adding your own.
Some great ideas for your calendar can be:
  • Your Favorite Photos
  • Your Favorite Recipes
  • Your Favorite Quotes
  • Your Favorite Layouts
  • The templates are simple and not overly complicated so that you can use your imagination to create something unique for your family. Use the blend-able masks for photos, other papers or remove them completely. The possibilities are endless.

The little poem I wrote for Lilly (feel free to use for your scrapbook pages if you are so inclined)


She Wields Magic
She wields magic like any child, though to us her's is quite rare,
It sparkles in her precious eyes and glistens in her hair.
Though our pretty little princess, is very VERY small,
She wields the purest magic, the greatest of them all.

~Aunt B for Lilly

Hope you all have a wonderful week! It's been really cool here in the Netherlands and raining a lot. I hear it has been scorching over in the US, so to my friends back home...stay cool, stay indoors and scrapbook!
