DIY Home Calendar Planner

Hello crafty friends,
Melin here with you today sharing my calendar. Part of being organized for me means keeping better track of time. So I decided to create this calendar that will hang on my bulletin board. I started by using a standard 12″ x 12″ scrapbook page size. From there I laid out my concept with my software. I love being able to lay my project out in my software before I cut anything. It helps me figure out my die cut sizes as well as what pieces I will use. Once I laid it all out, I picked my papers. I started by cutting a base of the Doilie Frame cut file from the library. I then cut the Flourish Hardware, Royal Damask, Wire Dress Form and the Doilie Frame 2 all from the Craft Room Library. Home Calendar CloseupI then created the clock cut file and arms. I cut them all with cardstock. I printed and cut the calendars and then hole punched them and used some jump rings from my stash for the binding. I also printed and cut the psalm sentiment. I inked the edges of the various die cuts and papers to give the whole project a shabby chic look.

It all came together pretty quickly and I will hang it in my craft room to help me keep track of the special days, like my family member birthdates, anniversaries, etc. I’ve included a download below for the printable calendars and for the clock and psalm files I created.
