2017 Calendar Inspiration, FREEBIE & Motivation!

Every month of 2016 I scrapped a Calendar Topper for a 2017 Calendar with my 2017 Calendar Templates that I released each month. I also did this last year, and I loved the end result, so it was easy to keep up the habit this past year, knowing what I would be getting in return. This year I decided to switch from a 12x18 top hanging calendar from Adoramapix to making 8.5x11 toppers and just using a premade calendar grid from Persnickety. I just ordered my calendar this week, and I can't wait to receive it. I'll share a review once I receive it. You can see my pages above. I used papers and elements from the Memory Pockets Monthly kits at The Lilypad.

A couple of my team members also created 2017 calendars with my calendar templates. Here's Katya's. She did the full 12x18 top hanging calendar.

Here's her cover page. She used my FREE 2016 Calendar Cover Template freebie and just switched the 6 out with a 7.


Love the top hanging calendars!


 Here are some close ups of her calendar. It looks so realistic!





Amanda also created a 2017 Calendar. She used the 12x12 templates and printed with Snapfish. She was very happy with her results!

Now for the good news! I'm going to continue making these calendar templates each month. That way you can make a calendar page each month and be ready to print a 2018 Calendar at the end of the year. It's much less intimidating if you scrap one calendar page a month than trying to cram it all in at the end of the year. My first set will release in a couple of weeks.

I had a few request to make another 2017 Calendar Cover Template.  I've been short on time, but I did create some numbers that you can use to create your own 2017 topper. With the numbers you can use it for any size cover you need to make. Or feel free to use my previous 2016 template and change out the 6.

Here's the cover for my 2017 calendar. I might do something similar for my 2017 Album!

Join me and my team in creating a 2018 calendar, you won't regret it!

Week 51: The Week Before Christmas

Weekly Life Templates 13 by Scrapping with Liz
Memory Pockets Monthly - Wonder Dec '16 and Add-ons Available at The Lilypad
The week before Christmas and all through the house there was baking and wrapping and excited children.

We started the week with a trip to Dollywood. We wanted to go to see the Christmas lights and parade. It was freezing cold, but we had so much fun. The rest of the week was spent preparing for Christmas. Countless wonderful memories were made this week, I can't even begin to describe them all. There are many more photos than what you see here, and I hope to capture them on more scrapbook pages down the road, but for now I think I have a nice recap.

Can you believe I only have one more week to scrap before my 2016 album is done?  I think this is my 5th year scrapping a weekly page. I'm definitely doing it again next year. These albums mean so much to my family. All of my kids enjoy looking through and being reminded of all our precious times together.

Keep a look out for my 2017 template sets...the first set will be in the store VERY soon!

50% Off Today Only: Paper Piecing Templates and Recyclables 51

Today I have a really fun set of paper pieced templates and a new set of Recyclables, which are collections of past freebies and challenge prices that I group together and place in my store at a great price. They are great samplers of my designs with lots of variety. Enjoy the 50% SOSN discount on these products today only, December 28, 2016.

Paper Piecing Templates were designed to have the look of folded-over paper pieces. They are really fun to use, with photos or paper peeking out from behind those "folded" pieces.



Recyclables 51 has a lot of variety, from circles, to a big photo background, to some fun angled and scattered picture spots.


I thought it would be fun to share one of my old pages with Paper Piecing Templates. I love the black and white photos paired up with all the colorful papers.


And Christine also had fun with patterned and solid papers, using Recyclables 51.

Merry Christmas From My Family to Yours!

Word Art from Krafty Christmas Elements by Mommyish

I snapped this photo of the kids outside our home really quick one Sunday after church. It's not the best, but it will have to do until I can get a professional photographer to take family pictures. I wanted to wish you all a Merry Christmas and let you all know you mean so much to our family. Thank you so much for your support this past year. I look forward to what 2017 is going to bring!

And just in case you missed my newsletter that I share a few weeks ago....

Monday's Highlight: 2009 Title Page by Ruth Anne

Front Page Templates by Scrapping with Liz
Enjoy the Moment Kit and Snippets by Sahlin Studio
Outlined Alpha by Sahlin Studio

Today's highlight is by Ruth Anne. It certainly does not matter that this page is seven years late, this cover page is fantastic! And she finished the album, that's what matters. I love how she mixed the photos in with some paper spots. It's like a little sneak peek into the album, and it makes you want to see more. The little dotted frame is great because it draws your eye around the paper and helps keep the flow of the page going. Great job, Ruth Anne!

Make sure to share your SwL pages in my private facebook group. I love seeing them!

This week was a random assortment of fun: decorating, band concert, muffin making, hot chocolate drinking, projects, school, baby shower, friends over and so much more. Some of it is captured on this page and some of it isn't. My photos were lacking this week, not sure why. I'll do better next week!
