Everybody loves a Calendar of Memories!
Do you have someone on your holiday list that loves arts & crafts? I have been teaching a really FUN children’s workshop for over 15 years and this is one of their favorite holiday activities to create as a gift. Anyone could do this idea themselves with printed pictures they already have (or print your favs at Snap2Finish). You can also GIFT the kit to someone who loves pictures and is interested in scrapbooking.
This idea is all about mixing together my love of digital and hands-on scrapbooking! It’s even MORE FUN to do with friends!
Did you know that you can create a calendar in Snap2Finish WITHOUT any pictures?? Why would you want to do that? Because this calendar idea is a DIY (Do It Yourself) kit.
Here are the supplies you will need:
1. Calendar created at Snap2Finish
Use the beautiful papers to create your backgrounds. You can still add special dates, holidays, birthdays, photos, etc to the GRID but keep the top part of the calendar really simple with just the background paper. Learn more about creating your calendar here.
2. Upload your photos and print at Snap2Finish
You’ll need 1-6 per month. I suggest that you print them as a 4 x 4 or 4 x 6 photo. If the person already has an Insta-Max camera or instant smart phone printer they could use ‘print at home’ photos.
I recommend the OMFL Glue Pen which is perfect for any papers, photos or embellishments.
4. Decorative Papers & Embellishments
Youngevity offers LOTS of options you can find here, but because you have already added decorative paper to each collage page, you will likely only need some fun stickers.
The adhesive and decorative stickers can be easily added to your Youngevity autoship or ordered anytime through your account.
Now that you have your supplies, add your photos to the calendar, decorate with stickers or paper, and you’ve created your DIY calendar.
Have fun celebrating the Snap!
