I was provided with this calendar kit to use for this sponsored post. But as always, all opinions are 100% my own.
Each year for Christmas we try to give a photo calendar to my parents. Something with a collection of pictures including all the grandkids. A keepsake for them to have all year. But when I found out about the Recollections Calendar Kit that is sold exclusively at Miichaels (PS, it’s only 39.99 so it makes a great holiday gift), I knew that this would be perfect for this case.
The kit comes with an album, a 12 month blank calendar pages, stickers and designer inserts in 3×4 and 4×6 sizes. And they all come in the cutest little pink box, that is the perfect box for gifting it in!
The insert pages are so easy to use with the inserts. They are coordinated for each month and they have a front and back to each card. You can do journaling as the month goes on, but keep the front looking cute with the designs.
But that’s not the only way to use the inserts for this fun calendar. You can use your own photos, paper and other scrapbooking items to make it more personal. This would be fun to insert photos as you take them throughout the year.
There’s tabs on the pages so that you can easily flip thru for scheduling purposes, as well as to insert the photos into past months.
This calendar is perfect, because once the year is up you wont just throw it away. Instead just lose up the book and put it on the shelf with the other scrapbooks. I put our family name and the year on the outside of it. I plan to have a bunch of these in the next few years.
The only thing that was difficult with the kit was the pre-punched holes. They didn’t all line up with the binder rings. So I did end up having to punch new holes. But after they were all inside the binder, you could barely tell.
My calendar is now sitting above my blogging desk in my bedroom, just waiting for it to be January 2014. How in the world is that already so close?
