2012 Calendar Templates!

Queen Wild has a new set of calendar templates available today.  Check out Queen Wild’s Blog for more fun examples of these templates and you may find a surprise in the Freebie Friday post.  You can grab them at Stuff to Scrap OR Scraps-N-Pieces!!

I created layouts for February and November just to give you a sneak peek….I do these for Christmas presents so the rest will have to wait.  The pictures will change for November since I don’t have current November pictures as of yet.  These calendars are great for gifts for family…the grids come in 8.5 x 11 size as well but I shrunk them down to do just one page….the family prefers the kids over the calendars anyway.

February was done using Scrappin Serenity’s Toadally Love You

November was done with Shades of Autumn by Ziggle Designs

I have a lot to show you so sit back and relax and get your wish list started……

First off is 3 Lil Monsters Designs with Fish are Friends and You Give Me Wings.  You Give Me Wings has a great story behind it.  Here is what Amy has to say about this great kit: While I was creating this kit, my husband and I were getting ready to celebrate 11 years of marriage. And as I worked I was thinking about how much our love has grown over the years, and the fact that we are happier now than ever. So I wanted to use this kit to celebrate our love and 11 years! Here’s to 11 more happy years.

You can use this kit for almost any layout, though, and it’s perfect for baby, kids, and couples layouts.

Amy also has Fish Are Friends.  Fish are Friends is a great kit to scrap Sea World, Aquarium or beach photos. 

Here is a fun page I created using this kit and the Photo Strips Templates

This page is part of 3 of 4…so be on the look out for some new templates later this week….

The next designer with kits in the $2 bin this week is Lovely Creations with Preschooler and a new Commercial Use (CU) frame set.
