Thinking About My 2009 Calendar

Last year for Christmas I made the Grandmas 2008 Calendars. I'm thinking that I need to get started on 2009 now, if I want to do it again this year.

I basically just picked a handful of pictures from each month, or if a month didn't have any good ones, I used some from a month that had a lot.

Then I just digitally scrapbooked them, saved each month as a jpg. and uploaded them as "pictures."

One of the features I love about the Creative Memories calendars, is that I was able to have birthdays and anniversaries of my family members actually printed on the calendars on those specific dates. It was so handy not having that yearly chore of writing all the birthdays in.

Here are some more pages for you to check out.

This one was also our Christmas card last year. I uploaded it to my local photo center and picked my pictures up an hour later. It's a very inexpensive way to do Christmas cards. You can even address the back and mail it as a postcard. It really works.


  1. I love them all. I have got to learn how to do this digital stuff. I would love to learn how to make our own Christmas cards. They are so expensive at JC Penneys or wherever. I've got to have a lesson someday...???? Thanks again for all the neat ideas.

  2. Did you do the Christmas card with SC+? Then just uploaded it to your local print shop? I'm a consultant too. I didn't do my own cards last year, but this year I want to. Those are too cute.

  3. CW, Yes, I did do my Christmas Card in StoryBook Creator Plus and then uploaded it to my local print shop. Now that I have this program, I do all my party invitations this way, birth announcements, and birthday pics to family. It saves me so much money.

    Janet, Anytime you want a digi lesson, I'm here for you. You'd love it.

  4. Those are great!! What a good idea to make the photos into a calendar.
