My '09 Calendar and a Sneak Peek

I finally got my '09 calendar done and thought I'd share a few pages with you, along with a sneak peek of the new Trees sets on the front cover. I cut some heavy chipboard into 4.5" squares but if I did this over again, I'd probably make them 5" and the inner pages 4.5". I then covered the cover pages with some pretty paper from October Afternoon, both inside and out. The inside pages are all from the same line. I pulled out my seldom used Bind-It-All and put it all together.





I added red circles on important dates using the line of circles from the Personal Stationery set. It's an easy way to add a visual reminder that there's an important day ahead.



If you turn the calendar around, there is a perpetual calendar for each month where I noted holidays, birthdays, and special days.




So what do you think of the new trees set(s)? These are much more fun to use than I ever imagined.
