I decided that I wanted a desk calendar - but not any old one you can buy at the store. I used Calendar Front with Rupert from Stamping with the Dragon store to create this monthly flip calendar.
I chose which calendar option I wanted from Word, deleted the parts I didn't want, then resized it to a smaller size. Next, I inserted Rupert at the top of the page and printed it out, one for each month. I could have gone ahead and typed in the name of each month, but I wanted to use some alphabet stickers that I have on hand.
I colored Rupert and the calendar lines with Copic markers (BG 72, BG75, BG10), cut the page to size and then used my 7 Gypsies Binderie machine to punch the holes in each piece of cardstock (definite time saver). I also covered a piece of chipboard with patterned paper and cut it slightly larger than my calendar pieces and made an easel back for it to stand up.
