Days to Remember Project

Posted by Kathy Torrence on Jul 29, 2007 in Crafts, Other items, Scrapbooks |

I wanted to design a project using the new Calendar background stamp set, so I decided to make a ‘Days to Remember’ book. The recipient can use this book to record special days such as birthdays, anniversaries and other holidays. Since the dates are not calendar specific (each month in the book starts on a Sunday and ends whenever), this can be used year after year. It’s just the dates that are important, not the days (hey…I guess I should have called this ‘Dates to Remember’ instead!).

This project took a VERY long time – there is a LOT of stamping to do. By the time I got to the inside pages, I decided to keep them very simple and just use a series of black and white photos taken from one day at the beach. But you could use a photo each month of someone whose birthday is in that month – that would be a wonderful gift!

So…here’s how it turned out:

I realized that I should have oriented the book cover sideways to match the inside calendars, but I think it’s cute anyway.

Instead of varying the color scheme of the months (which would look REALLY good), I kept the colors the same throughout the book. Like I said, this was a LOT of work.

P7290003

P7290004

P7290006

Just a couple of pages to give you an idea of the inside…I couldn’t use too many embellishments because I didn’t want the book to be too thick.

I used a Stampin’ Up! art journal as the basis of the book and have MANY more blank pages at the back. Maybe you could use these for notes or as a journal – or to record the gifts received and given for each occasion.
