Calendar Round-Up!

It's about that time of year when some of my digital scrapbooking friends think about making custom calendars. Since I don't have any new full calendar sets for you this year (bummer!), I thought I would do a little round-up of all my past calendar sets that are still available. There's also a special little coupon for my blog readers at the end of this post. Don't miss it!

The first three sets are 8.5x11 Calendar Topper Templates. You can decorate the top with your photos and digi-stash and use Shutterfly to print them. Adoramapix, Persnickety Prints, and Arts Cow all allow for calendar printing too. You just have to watch the size.  These can easily be made into 12x12 templates in case that's the size calendar you are going for. Arts Cow, Persnickety and Adoramapix also allow for custom calendar grids on the bottom. Although, this year I have no 2015 grids for you (bummer again!).

Now, while I have no custom 2015 grids, I do have this 2014 set. I think you could easily switch around the grids to work for 2015....but that might take you extra time that you don't have. It's just a suggestion. You might also want to watch the size on these. Depending on what size calendar you want you might have to re-size them, and that's super easy to do. I have a tutorial here. These could also make a fun year in review album if you wanted to give someone a gift.

Then I have this totally customizable starter grid. You could totally make this work for 2015. And since it's a single template it's super cheap.

I have these perpetual calendar templates that are perfect for any year. Make a nice year in review album as a gift or get some pages ready to jot down those memories of next year. Remember to add in birthdays and anniversaries before you print so they are handy to remember.

Another perpetual set. These would be really cute as a gift. I made some of these a couple years ago and printed them on my home printer and they turned out really nice.

This is a single perpetual calendar template that would look great printed and hung in your house somewhere to remember those important dates.

Since it's that time of the year and you are looking for calendars and gifts to make you can grab anything in the calendar category in my store over at Scrap Orchard at 40% OFF.

If you make a calendar or a gift with any of these be sure to share with me!

GSO Winner!

Please join me and congratulating Janice (jaharvey) on winning this month’s GSO!

She competed against some awesome competition but her nature layout shined the brightest! We love this layout using the Keepin' It Real Double Templates for its beautiful nature photography that pops against a dark background and lights the page from within. Truly elegant and beautiful.

Visit Janice's gallery to leave her some 'love' on this gorgeous layout.

We had a chance to ask Janice some questions about her scrapping and this what she had to say...

What layout are you currently working on or planning to start next?
We're actually in Maui on vacation right now, so I'm pretty sure my next bunch of pages will be vacation ones! When we get home, we'll start decorating for Halloween, so I'll be doing some seasonal pages, too. We do a lot of walks and hikes, and I am really looking forward to including some fall colours in my layouts.

When did you start scrapping and who or what got you started?
I started digi scrapping about 3 years ago, but paper scrapping a few years before that. A friend of mine was selling scrapbook supplies through home parties and got me started. Originally I intended just to rescue pre-digital photos from old albums, but then I got hooked. Ironically, I've only scrapped maybe 1/4 of the old photos so far. There's just so many new photos to keep up with. I'd like to do childhood albums for my kids before they have kids of their own. We have 25-year-old twin girls and a 27-year-old son ... I guess I'd better get going on those!

What is your favorite layout, you created using a Scrapping with Liz product? 
Hmm, so hard to choose. I've used a lot of SWL templates. I love the simple designs, as I like to focus on the photos. I'm rather partial to my Victoria day trip page, it actually includes two SWL templates: one for the page and one for a journal card.

 Thank you to all you voters! Random-dot-org selected number 11, mattcindi, as the winner of $5 to Liz's store in the Vote and Win drawing!
