I am in Christmas present planning mode, (I know, I know, but I like to plan early) and I decieded a few weeks ago to make a calender for my husbands grandmother for her gift. I went on Costco.com and looked at my options and was just going to create it on there by uploading my photos with the templates they have...
I did think to myself that I should take the time and digitaly make some cute layouts for the calender, but I have to admit it sounded kinda time consuming, and that it would cut into my catching up on other scrapping lol.
HOWEVER! I came across this wonderful blog http://scripscrapp.blogspot.com/2009/08/calendar-freebie.html
This awesome blogger has created quick pages ( meaning just put your pics in the frame pages), that are adorable for calender creation use! The best part, her creations are free. Friday night after the kids went to bed, I spent my time choosing pics for the calender of the kiddos. Yesterday I uploaded my saved pages on Costco.com and created a calender with them. Their calenders are currently on sale through some time in September so with shipping (cause they don't make the calenders in their stores) the cost to make this gift is under $12. Not to bad... and really cute.
If I like the product after I get this one back, I am most likely going to print more for other family members.
I will be making some posts to show off my layouts that I did with her templates.
