2012 Family Calendar

I thought I’d share something I’ve done the past few years for our family calendar. Every few years I receive a few promotional code for a Shutterfly Calendar. Love that! Free is always fun! This year a friend had a code to spare and so I got to work putting it together. I was in a bit of a rush (as it was my anniversary and all), so I sped along. This is what I came up with.

This was last year’s:

I have loved having the Primary Monthly themes on our calendar.
1. Since I look at the calendar so much, I remember to try and focus on what the kids are learning in Primary. It sure makes for a quickie FHE idea to go along with Sunday lessons.
2. I put the song for the year on the cover so it’s easily accessible when we are practicing or having a song for FHE or Morning Devotional.

I really love Shutterfly Calendars because the cardstock is very thick and durable. My kids love that I can put their photo on the date of their birthday.

Anyhoo… I thought just in case anyone else was interested in making a 2012 Primary Calendar (with their own family images), I’d share the .jpg images already set in the template for a Shutterfly Calendar (p.s. they have their calendars on ***sale*** right now). You can insert your images into the .jpg downloaded files in Picasa or use a different photo-editing software. I had fun going through all the January photos from various years and selecting my favorites… and so on for each month.

This is what you get in the download:

Zipped Folder of 8.5×11 2012 Primary Posters Calendar Pages
(with a place to insert your own family photos)

(the file is large so be patient when downloading…
you will need to unzip the folder before you can access the images)

Hop on over to Shutterfly and order your calendar before the sale ends!

    How do you insert the pictures with Picasa? I have used it for basic photo editing, but I didn’t know I could insert a picture into a picture. Thank you for sharing this!
