Enjoy your Favorite Moments Year-round
Are you looking for a really personalized gift that can be enjoyed all year long? Recently I was talking with Vicky McClure who shared more about the family calendars she makes each year.
Vicky said, “I love making calendars every year for me and my family. It brings me JOY each month to look at photos that are meaningful to me. Last year I made my daughter a desk calendar. She thought it was great! She is a hairstylist and has it displayed at her workplace. When her husband saw the calendar he also wanted a copy to take to his workplace.
I also display my calendar pages from past years in a frame in our home. I change the Calendar page to feature whomever is visiting or for the season. People just love seeing themselves in print.”
We offer several different options for creating calendars at Snap2Finish. We know you’ll find a design and style that you’ll love. Thanks Stacy Croninger for putting together this quick video showing how easy it is to add custom dates and photos to the calendar grid as well as adding photos to each month.
As Vicky shared, our 12 x 18 Now & Later Calendar can be enjoyed now as a calendar and later displayed in an album! Each page is perforated in two places, allowing you to tear it away from the binding and remove the calendar grid—leaving you with a 12 x 12 page to add to our OMFL traditional album. I especially love the top-loading pages for this idea!
Here’s an example of a calendar I put together for several years using slides that were scanned into a digital format. I got the stories behind these pictures from my parents and added them onto the page. Each Christmas I created one calendar and ordered multiple copies for all my siblings and parents. The calendar was enjoyed all year long. At the end of the year, the 12 x 12 photo page was easily torn off and slid into a traditional scrapbook. This was how I put together a family album from my childhood. Each year we couldn’t wait to open that gift and years later I have a treasured album from my childhood.
Have fun celebrating the Snap!
