Printable calendars are all the rage. With the New Year right around the corner, people are looking for meaningful gifts to make and to give to their loved ones. My family loves receiving these homemade gifts full of our memories and photos. I still have "This is my favorite gift!" ringing in my ears from when I gave my sister one of these calendars for Christmas.
Printable calendars are quick and easy to put together. You can print calendars at home or use a print shop that will print and also bind your calendar for you. Scrap Girls has a variety of printable calendars in the digital scrapbook store. Many popular sizes available are 2.3x3.1, 4x6, 8x8, 8x10, 11x14, and 12x24. Here is a peek at the digital scrapbooking calendars you can find at Scrap Girls in the Boutique!
Easy Page Pro Printable Calendars are already made for you. It doesn't get any easier than this. Simply slide your photos into the opening, and you are ready to print and give. It really is that easy and that fast!
Assemble your own calendar and checkbook covers with these ready-made pieces. You can customize, print, and slip the cover into the jacket of a pocket calendar or checkbook. What a great little gift for someone you love to carry around in her purse!
This ScrapSimple calendar template will make a gorgeous 2012 calendar. Use your choice of digital scrapbooking papers and embellishments to turn these gray templates into a beautiful masterpiece. The clipping shortcuts, Ctrl+Alt+G (PC) or Cmd+G (Mac), will "clip" papers and photos to the templates. You'll have your calendar made in no time.
Have complete customization control with this 4x6-inch perpetual printable calendar. Perpetual calendars have longevity, because they can be used year after year to make new calendars. Scrap Girls carries all the popular sizes of perpetual calendars that you need. Check out the Assemble Your Own: Everlasting Calendar Super for a quick and beautiful perpetual calendar option.
Printable calendars are the popular gift choice, because they can be enjoyed day after day and all year long. Printable calendars are easy to put together and print to make a beautiful gift. Visit the Calendar section of the Scrap Girls Boutique to see more printable calendars.
Thanks for visiting the calendar section with me. Before I go, I want to share what I am doing with my calendar. I am printing it out, clipping it to a clipboard, and attaching it to the wall. The 3M Command™ Strips come in handy for this. I can carry it around the house if I'm on the phone and need to pencil in a date. The hard back of the clipboard makes a great writing surface. It will be so easy to change out the months. I love this fun way of showing off the printable calendar!

It's not hard, and she will have a layout with a Word Art example in the gallery. Then we'll meet in the chat room to have fun, chat, and create our Word Art layout! Everyone can participate and create a layout, even if you can't make the chat. Hope to see you there!
