It's Friday and a beautiful day to remember to "Enjoy the Moment!" Robin Shakoor and Annette Green share brilliant projects with Children's Hour, our newest calendar collection. This collection is so versatile and perfect for so many projects! Let's take a look.
Robin made this stunning layout that is so stunning, but only took a few techniques to complete. Beautiful!
"I created a quick and easy layout using just a few techniques. I matted my photo and placed it in the center of the page. I created banners using stickers from the Decorative Sticker and November Collective sheets. To finish the deisgn, I added flowers, die cut leaves and chipboard buttons.
Tip: Creating layout pages can be fast and easy just by using a few embellishments and well placed strips of paper." ~Robin

Now, Annette will truly wow you with this amazing star calendar. What a perfect way to celebrate the year!
"I absolutely adore every calendar collection Graphic 45 produces because the creative ideas are endless and useful throughout the entire year. I created this tabletop “calendar” with a fun star-shaped base so it can be on display all year long. Perfect for a table centerpiece for all to see and enjoy. I’ve also adorned six ATC tags which can be used during holidays on packages, a bouquet of flowers or attached to greeting cards.
Although I’ve called it a calendar, it’s one of those projects you can decide for yourself how you’ll use it. Each month has a pocket with an ephemera card tucked inside. Here are just a few ideas how you might use this:
A perpetual birthday/event reminder.
Attach a small calendar to each (I’ve provided a free 2016 printable on my blog at this link:
Write your monthly goals or dreams.
A thankful journal; jot down something every day you’re thankful for. Then review at the end of the year.
Children’s accomplishments or good deeds.
Chore list for families with several children. Rotate tasks each month to keep it fun and interesting." ~Annette
